Hi! I am a screenwriter with 2 options and 2 sales under my belt. Feature sale didn't get made, but the short script is in post production. I have production experience - PA, UPM, Location Scouting, 2nd AD, Associate Producer, Script Supervisor, Wardrobe, Craft Services - you get the picture - I have worn a lot of hats. I feel that every writer should experience the production phase at some point, even it it's not your own work. The best way to do that is to volunteer on a local indie set (they can always use an extra set of free hands). I also read a lot of scripts and provide feedback, resulting in happy writers and directors. I am considering starting my own script consulting biz ... just mulling for the moment.
I look forward to meeting many more members of this talented group. It's been a pleasure being here.
I titled this post Fruition - that is my word for the week - as I am expecting the enjoyment of my desired outcome - to see the fruits of my labor.
I am a writer because I love the written word - I am a screenwriter because I love the written word brought to life.
