Bullet Proof Pages

2006. I'm a radio air-personality at POWER 92FM in Richmond, Virginia when it happens: American Idol comes to town. One of my best friends auditions for the show, and he's voted to the next round. For Elliott Yamin, the rest is history. My boy placed third. There's nothing like seeing your friend on TV. "Surreal" doesn't do it justice. The energy of Elliott's story inspires me in a life-changing way. I must tell the story that has to be told. I devour every …

I Have a Secret. I Write Screenplays.

Making It In Hollywood My Way

In the spirit of healthy debate, today's guest blog comes from author, playwright and Stage 32 member Jack Fitzgerland. After seeing the overwhelming response to last week's blog from Shaun O'Banion, How I Got Started, Part 1 and Part 2, Jack was inspired to share with us a different but equally interesting story about how he got his start in the industry and, in the process, takes not only Shaun to task for how he punched his ticket to the promised land, but the community's response to …

Writing Women As A Man

Today we welcome back guest blogger and screenwriter, CJ Walley. CJ started writing in 2012 and, over an intense two years, has had one script featured on the Amazon Studios Consideration Slate, two features spotlighted on The Black List, and a short produced by an up-and-coming director. CJ is a remarkably talented writer but, above all, he is a positive and generous spirit – a true collaborator. Day after day you’ll see CJ giving selflessly to the Stage 32 community inside…

'Lost': The Musical - Making Comedy Gold

4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42. For six seasons those of us who tuned into Lost week after week will never forget the journey we took with Jeffrey Lieber, J. J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof.

Steven Christopher Parker and Steven Brandon independently wrote and produced Lost: The Musical, which has recently played to sold-out crowds in L…

Jairo spent many years in the industry as a creative executive working for Warner Bros. and 3 Arts Entertainment before moving over to his current post at Circle of Confusion (The Walking Dead). But the story doesn't start there.  Jairo took a long and winding path from being a History major at UCLA to now working for one of the most respected management and production companies in the industry.
