I finally heard back from the person needing help rewriting their script. Yep. I gots me a writin’ project. Technically, a rewrite, but work’s work.
I’m still having trouble with the directive to fix what needs fixing in the wide margins and leaving the dialogue alone. I’m also to leave in certain descriptions so they serve as a reminder of what the scene is supposed to look like.
But you’re the director! Shouldn’t you already know that? I try to keep the descriptions as condensed as possible.
Oh well. Nothing else to do but forge ahead. Based on what I’ve read so far, I’m steeling myself against the strong possibility of working on a poorly-written script. At least before I get my hands on it.
After I filled out my part of the agreement and sent it back, I realized this is the same person I dealt with last fall who was looking for someone to write a 120-page Bollywood script. That crashed and burned for me before I even got started. Wonder if it eventually worked out?
-Didn’t realize it’s been a while since the last Movie of the Moment. Nothing so far – been too busy, but hopefully soon.
-V wants to see THOR, but it’s PG-13. I have no problem taking her, but K says it may be rated that because some parts may be too intense, especially for V. V says she wouldn’t be scared, but when somebody whimpers and buries her face against your chest during her very first glimpse of Godzilla popping his head over the Japanese countryside, it kind of makes you re-evaluate the situation.
