Playing For Fun

Blog: Playing For Fun

This week I've been trying to get through script reports while working on a spec pilot. I don't think I've ever been so worried about being a hack before in my life. I'm trying to be impartial and give notes that I feel are reasonably objective; protagonists need real motivation, loose unnecessary scenes etc etc. I'm giving these notes as I notice nearly all of them are applicable to my script that I'm rewriting. In conclusion I take fucking ages to finish drafts to a "satisfactory" standard anyway so I'm really not enthusiastic about fundamentally re-writing my one kind of okay-ish spec. I should probably also have more spec scripts that aren't terrible... and series pitches... and film pitches... stupid single minded focus on independent projects.

I like Indie comedies. Indian comedies.
