First three months of the year wrapping up today, which makes it the perfect opportunity to offer up your Project Status Update! Feel free to step up to that virtual microphone (aka the comments section) and announce the latest developments for whatever is currently occupying your attention.
My list is pretty short:
-Work on the pulp spec continues. Currently around page 83, with a projected final count of 120ish. Strongly suspect FADE OUT will be typed sometime in mid-April, give or take a couple of days.
-Dipped my toe into the waters of rewriting the low-budget comedy courtesy of some helpful notes. Not a total page-one rewrite, but definitely taking my time with this one.
-My western was named a finalist at the WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival screenwriting contest. (Editor’s note – yay) Further details (i.e. how it placed) won’t be announced until the awards ceremony at the end of April, but still quite proud to have made it this far.
And a couple of items tacked on to the bulletin board, which spotlights creative-type folks and their even more creative projects well worth your time and attention:
-Filmmaker/screenwriter Eric Claremont Player has launched a crowdfunding campaign for his courtroom drama film project. Make sure to check out the colorfully captivating and absolutely true backstory that led up to it.
-Writer-director Dianna Ippolito is running a crowdfunding campaign for her new project Robb’s Problem: A Horror Short. As Dianna puts it, “Our goal is to bring you a really smart, beautiful and thought-provoking horror film, produced, written and directed by women.”
As with all crowdfunding projects listed here, donate if you can!
If you’d like to get the word out about a project of your own, feel free to drop me a line. Operators are always standing by.
-Ran the San Francisco Rock & Roll Half-marathon this past weekend. Made it just under the 2-hour mark with 1:59:11. Next race is in July, so hoping to shave a few minutes off of that.

– I’ve sent my recent heist script, HOPPER, out to managers and prodcos. This was after seven drafts, a wonderful consult with my script consultant and an amazing table-read with a local group of actors.
One rejection so far and one curious reply to ask if it was still available. I also submitted it to the AFF.
– Just finished my first television spec script (pilot). It’ll go out to my readers over the next few days and to my script consultant next week. I thought it would be easier to write than a feature. It wasn’t.
– And, of course, doing prep work on my next project – another feature.
Outstanding, sir. Write on.
