Full Week

I haven't been posting too much this week due to a full schedule. Today I mailed out my screenplay to the Nicholl people. This being the first year they put up an online application proved to be a challenge. After numerous tries I finally got myself in the system. It's all okay because there is something so satisfying about binding up your script. Physically putting it together with a cover and brads. Feeling the paper in your hands. I mean sure you could stack up a pile of 108 blank pages but it doesn't have the same "weight".

This week is also the beginning of the Tribeca Film Festival. I've been living downtown for a couple of years now and I have to admit it is pretty nice walking out your door and there is a major film event going on in your neighborhood. Last night I went to the screening of Civic Duty and just got back now from seeing Kettle of Fish. I'll try to do one big recap of the festival at the end. Maybe I'll actually be able to enjoy some of it now that the weekend is coming up. I have to say it's an interesting week when you are in the same proximity of Norman Mailer, Peter Krause and Gina Gershon, oh yeah, how can I forget seeing Mandy "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die" Patinkin sitting outside of Odeon after getting a haircut.

On the work front, I got a call from a production company looking to get some new blood into there place. So I have make a new editor reel for 2006 which is probably good anyway. I had to do it this just gave me a reason to. I've acually been juggling it all. I even found the time to start building a new site for this savage art.... I'll be switching over to WordPress in the next week or two. Right now I'm building and tweaking. I think it's coming along nicely. I'll post the new address here when it's fully up and running.

What's next? A new screenplay. After I cut the new reel I'll start to work on breaking a new story. Figuring out what you want to spend the next six months and beyond writing about is a challenge. You have to give yourself enough time to get the story and the beats in your head and live with it for a while otherwise you are setting yourself up for a nightmare later on.

Ever feel like you have homework for the rest of your life?
