Well, I can look back at 2007 and say I made *some* progress at this scriptwriting lark. Of course, I’m not about to tell the whole of the internet exactly what I did (and didn’t manage to) do. Chances are you know anyway and even if you don’t, I think an air of mystery always aids a lady (or you can decide I did nothing at all, which is your prerogative, though you’d be wrong).
But that’s the thing with this scripty-stuff, right? You can make lots of in-roads but unless they break on through to the other side production-wise or worse, distribution-wise, no one ever hears about them. Or better still (not), you can have something made but because it’s the type of thing that doesn’t have your name listed on it (like a website, toy, CD Rom etc), people look at you funny and think you’re laying claim to random stuff just in order to big yourself up. Which would be crazy, but then I think we’re all probably a little crazy. I’m rambling now. I have a temperature. It’s the same bug my husband has but of course he’s DYING whilst I soldier on. Men.
So, my plans for 2008? The same as 2007 really. Get a TV commission. Get a script editing and/or supervising job on a film with major distribution that starts its principal photography this year. A couple of my secret projects have managed to fall off the edge of 2007 and into 2008, so I’m still not telling you about them but I’ll do those too, natch. Oh and make a short film! That’s a new one, one I’ve always *intended* to get round to but never managed. If you fancy collaborating with me on…something and live somewhere near me (Dorset would be handy, Bournemouth handier still), then get in touch. Let’s rock and roll.
Happy New Year.
