Sorry for the slowdown, I was doing well with the blogging there for a while. Been a bit busy the past week or so, had to go off to a secret thing to do secret things, all will be revealed soon. Need to finish some stuff this weekend, as it’s due to be handed in. Also had several meetings, and got a new gig doing an episode of another existing TV show. And it’s not TW or DW, it’s a different one, on a different channel – I know! Traitor! When I go to the BBC for meetings now, I hear people hissing curses at me from down corridors, and there’s a big poster of my face in reception with “SCAB” printed on it. That’s not true of course, that would be silly and mad. When the contracts have all been sorted out, then I’ll say what the show is, but it’s probably the one you’re already thinking of.
Haven’t heard back about the movie I pitched for yet, but the movie rewrite I did seems about to hire a director, so that might start rolling forwards soon. Didn’t get the other TV episode I pitched for, just got the same standard, curt rejection everyone else got – “not quite what we’re looking for”. On reflection, maybe a kid’s animation show aimed at 5-7 year olds wasn’t ready to tackle the subject of serial killers who flay their victims alive and wear their skin. I’ll know for next time.
Obsessive Amazon watch latest: Severance is at 2,260 (down from 1,708). Cindy Crawford’s Shape Your Body Workout is at 3,174. The numbers speak for themselves. Remember, Christmas is less than 3 months away – show someone you love (or hate) them, with a shiny new DVD of Severance. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Although for legal reasons, I must point out that it doesn’t actually keep on giving. Once you give it, that’s it. They can watch it over and over though, if they want. But it’ll still be the same movie. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
