I'm currently working with a collaborating partner on a new television concept. Can we agree that TV has taken a turn for the worse in the last decade? Do you remember Mister Wizard, Jaques Costeau, nature documentaries without a sensationalist agenda? Where has this programming gone? While there are obvious exceptions - Planet Earth, LOST, Arrested Development; there are good shows being made, but there are hundreds of new channels streaming worthless moving images with tinny audio. We have a strong concept for a classic kind of show, a global show. And we have interest!
We shot a movie and it is being edited. It's a short film, but it's epic in scale. The hope is to take the short and use it to sell the feature-length script. And then to be given the opportunity to direct it.
I'm writing, short-stories, essays and screenplays. I'm editing the hours and hours of footage from around the world that I've accrued over the past few years of traveling. I'm learning how to be a better filmmaker. And I'm working with clients who I enjoy, who challenge me and who provide me with an income.
I'm also working out, running, tanning, watching movies and informative videos and reading, a lot. I hate to be too positive here, but it feels great to be human!
