“Hero Life” Update

Busy_Bee

As you all know by now, I’m co-writing a new live-action, feature-length screenplay. It’s called “Hero Life”. As I’ve said before about the project, for those of you who may have missed it when I posted about it here, “Hero Life” has a plot that revolves around a paranormal superhero. Contractually, the script for “Hero Life” is to be completed by the end of next month.

Currently, we’re seventy-five pages into the script. We’re building toward the climax. At this point, things are certainly on track for wrapping up this script by the end of December. Luckily for me, my co-writer will be coping with the sales aspects of this project. That frees me up to leap into the next project on my proverbial plate once “Hero Life” is wrapped up.

Working on “Hero Life” is a lot of fun, though. It’s a great story, with interesting characters. Once the film is made, there will be some very interesting visuals, too. This is a project that I think all of you will enjoy.

Movie Extras

Yesterday evening Desirée Lee and I had the pleasure of joining our friend Haywood Macabre on-set of the new film “Covet Thy Neighbor”. Though we had only intended to show up to support Mr. Macabre, and watch as a scene he is in was filmed, Desirée and I wound up being extras in the scene as Mr. Macabre played his guitar in-scene. It was fun—the first time for Desirée or myself being in a movie, and getting to support a friend, and one of his latest projects.

Please keep watching for updates on “Covet Thy Neighbor”. Hopefully the tiny bit of film in which Desirée and I appear will make the final cut!

Film Project Help Needed

Desirée Lee and I have hit new territory. A producer is asking for a project proposal and a detailed budget from us for a film project. Writing the project proposal isn’t a problem. But we need help with the budget. As stated, this is new territory for us; we don’t know how to estimate the various costs involved with making a movie well enough to write up a budget plan. Can anyone help us with this?

Amazon Studios Reply—”Dark River Lords” Update

Dark_River_Lords_Title

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but… Amazon Studios turned down “Dark River Lords”. The message from them was simple:

“Thank you again for creating your project, Dark River Lords, at Amazon Studios. The option and evaluation period is now over, and we have chosen not to exercise or extend our option on your project.

Since you submitted your original work privately, you may now either make it public, by clicking “Make project public” on your project page, or remove it from Amazon Studios, by clicking “Remove my project” on your project page. If you do neither within two weeks from the date of this email, you will no longer have the option to make it public, and it will automatically be removed from Amazon Studios. Please see our FAQ for more information about what it means to remove your private project from Amazon Studios.

We encourage you to keep your work available for public review at Amazon Studios, and wish you all the best with your project.

Sincerely,

The Amazon Studios Cast and Crew ”

So, despite the fact that “Dark River Lords” ended its voting period with 350+ wins out of 370+ rounds of voting, Amazon Studios declined the project. They didn’t bother to explain why. I have zero clue what it takes to get them to option a project.

Anyway, “Dark River Lords” is, once again, up for grabs for any producer interested in optioning the project.

Logline: In this intense action/drama, when a princess is kidnapped by the king of a rival land, the captain of her personal guard will stop at nothing to secure her freedom.

Any producers out there interested in “Dark River Lords”, please get in touch with me.
