After months of rewrites, a great script read with friends, family, actors and film industry pros, and a final round of rewrites after receiving notes from lots and lots of people, I recently completed co-writing a feature-length, sci-fi/family adventure script, whose journey around Hollywood I'll describe in a future post.
I'm excited to return my attention to an unproduced Twilight Zone spec script I wrote a few years back. Its title is Go Back. I wrote it to demonstrate I could follow hour-long television formating. Now, I'm going to rewrite it as a feature-length supernatural thriller.
The television script never sold but did serve as an excellent calling card, getting the attention of producer Justin Wicker while he was working at SONY Television under president Steve Mosko. Justin and I co-wrote the pilot and bible to a children's half-hour animation series, which hasn't sold...yet.
I like to write a script while listening to one song on repeat. The song typically finds me while I'm hashing out the outline of the script.
I wrote the Twilight Zone version of Go Back while listening to Beck's "Deadweight."
I'm writing the feature-length version to Len's "Steal My Sunshine."
Two very different songs, I know, but both fit the story.
Stay tuned for news on the script's progress.
