Hello Stage 32,
I've been a member of the site since 2013.
Stage 32 is a fantastic platform for networking and building relationships - I encourage you all to use this Introduce Yourself weekend to put yourself out there and make new connections and hopefully lifelong friendships and working relationships.
I'm currently in development with a feature horror, called Banshee Awakening. It's been an epic rollercoaster ride, spanning nearly 7 years. At one point, we were very close to shooting, but as everyone in this game knows, for every film that gets to principal photography, there's a whole host of 'almosts'.
My writing buddy, Paul Lynch, and I have been very fortunate to get an Irish producer onboard last year. We've received some great feedback from cast (some LOIs in place) and crew and we're at the stage of putting a solid package together in 2021 for Development Funding. The webinars on financing and production have been invaluable to me in understanding this part of the process.
Keep writing. There are many ways to break in - persistence is key.
