No Disneyland for Phill

Common sense has prevailed and I’ve actually done some writing instead of running away. The list so far stands at:

Adjust ’til Death for budget, location and cast.

The writer’s vision.

Alter the treatment to match the script.

A sketch for a theatre project.

A list of episodes for a TV series with a brief synopsis of each.

A re-write to a sitcom pilot.

And the rest of the re-write to my sword and sorcery epic.

Not massive inroads perhaps, but inroads all the same.

  2. WRITING, YAY! 🙂

    So what does a writer’s vision actually look like? … you’ve mentioned a few of these now. — Yeah, big piles of dosh, but what do the producers actually want to see from the writer? Tell us, tell us, tell us!?

  3. Piers: people often ask me how I got into writing and I rarely tell the same story twice; but the truth is it’s because as a child I used to make up a lot of stories. Back then they used to call it lying, but it turns out if you write the lies down you get paid for them. So where as it might well say ‘scriptwriter’ on my business cards, it says ‘liar’ in my heart.

    The moral of the story is never believe a writer.

    Having said that, I’m going to be in Tampa for most of next month so if you fancy it, pop over, we’ll hire a car and do Disney.

    Eleanor: good question, worthy of its own post I feel …

  6. Cheers. Shame the script’s rubbish!

  7. I don’t think you can lose with a concept like ‘Til Death.
