I haven’t done anything more on the script, more for the want of spare time than anything. But the other day I heard back from the UK Film Council. Once again, I’ve been turned down for development funding because the script’s not good enough. I guess their dictionary doesn’t have the word “irony” in it.
I’ve nearly finished the new draft, but I’m not sure one of the biggest changes I’ve made is working. It feels a bit shoe-horned in. I’ve got to decide whether to take it back out or not. Thing is, it’s a change a lot of people have suggested I make.
I had a meeting this evening with a producer who really liked the script but thought I should get someone else to direct it. It’s kind of annoying that the most recent example of my directing abilities (Soul Searcher) is three and a half years old now. I’m sure I’d be much better at it now. Another reason why this pilot scene is needed.
I finished the new videomatic. It showcases my staggering vocal acting talents.
