I have to thank Bobby Miller and his great show, The Best Short Films in the World, for exposing Killing Killian to a gazillion people.
Okay, so 1500 so far isn't a gazillion, but it's certainly a lot, and it's always great to see people enjoyed it. some didn't, but what the hell. That's life, and that's movies.
In the past few days I've been working on a few more translations, as well as a bunch of pitches that are both so specific and so wide-ranging that I've burnt up valuable brain cells. It's hard coming with stories you're not necessarily going to write, because they need the same amount of thought --at least in the early stages-- as a full screenplay. But when the idea is cast aside, it's time to clean that slate, which is easier said than done. And what with translations on my mind as well, it all gets bunched up.
On the other hand, I just finished a major rewrite on a script I'm looking to get financing for next year. Plus a new draft of another a managing company asked for. And working on finishing yet a third that I was asked to submit (they have the previous incarnation, but if I finish soon, they might not have read it yet and would be happy to see whatever changes I've made). Oh, and I'm currently rewriting a project I've been helping a friend with.
Plenty on my mind...
