On A Roll

Quick, useless update. Cricket Hill is rolling along, been getting quite a few pages done of the Pilot over the last week, plan to be done the 1st draft by Thursday.

It's pretty neat to get into something I wrote as a feature, then expand it like this. I got right back into this family's story, getting back the character's voices, adding to their backstories, etc.

Once it's done I'll send it to my gang at the Prod Company. My main contact there and the Director who's attached to direct the Pilot will then check it out and we'll see what they think. I'm sure they'll have plenty of notes, etc. They loved the first set of pages I sent last week, so I hope the rest pleases them as well.

***Note - If this thing takes off, I'm California-bound, so you guys & gals already out there will have to help me move in to your fine state.

You start to sound like a real pro to me. But I guess that's your reward for fighting a lot with the scripts, contests, etc.

Hope for the best on the pilot.

Congrats on your new found success. You deserve it.

It must be exciting to have all those people eagerly awaiting script pages.

It is exciting - now it's the added stress of them actually liking them!

Good luck...in the same boat this week as I expand a feature pitch to a single-arc series.

Your first California beer is on me.

Chris,
I'm gonna hold you to that! I'm a Corona man, with a dash of Goldschlager.

I LOVE Corona! Especially with a slice of lime on top. As soon as I drop this sprog, I'm drinking 4 in one go. I'm gonna need it.

Patrick J. Rodio said...

Yes, with a lime!

Pat. I think you should get back on the horse. The crazy horse.

It's the only way.
