I promised updates on my screenwriting progress during April’s Script Frenzy frenzy.
I’ve slept an average of 4 hours a night since this began. My head hurts. I’m out of coffee. I’m almost out of dark chocolate covered espresso beans. I forgot to shower yesterday. But as of this morning I’ve got 27/100 pages written (it’ll probably be closer to 120 pages, or a two hour screenplay, when all is said and done). And I think I’ve finally got a handle on how to adapt my bohemoth novel into a two-hour movie.
Auditions soon for the following roles:
Corey (aha! A composite character not in the novel.)
Other assorted characters
Person who owns 2 cameras, lighting/sound equipment
Person with lots and lots and lots and lots of disposable income
Other assorted behind the scenes people

Don’t forget the prop guy! And a sound track composer.
But when it comes to budget…why not do a “will work for food” or “will work for coffee?” I know I’d do that. ;o)
I soooo want to be Rachel. I could do it well, I swear! I usually get casted as younger characters. I can send you over my acting portfolio and headshots, if needed. 🙂
Great idea, Joe! I’ve got connections for some inexpensive, yet high quality, coffee. 😀
If you’re willing to go super dark, the role is yours! (Free coffee’s okay for a salary, right?)
Make it those disgustingly fatty cappuccinos* that come from that machine, and you’ve got yourself a deal!
(actually, I enjoy half cappuccino/half cocoa.)
Inexpensive is a good way to go! (Sometimes it’s better than the high priced stuff.)
Whenever I do acting, I always get the role of the “bad guy.” (I guess it’s because most of what I wear is black…)
I can be an extra! Or the evil mother! (Where’s the evil mother?) I’m too old for anyone else.
Jen, you’ve got yourself a deal!!!
Joe, talk about typecasting! You’re probably one of the nicest guys I’ve never met. 😉
Robin, you’re much too young to be the evil mother. I’ll think of something, though.
I can be craft services! What does that mean anyway? I am quite crafty.
Congrats on doing so well with your script. I’m feeling inspired.
According to Wikipedia:
I guess this means I still have to find a caterer. Fortunately, there are lots of McDonalds in Maine. 😉
