About Gerard

My ´success´ so far.
Two years ago a big production company in Hollywood asked my script ´Haunted screen´after they had read its logline and synopsis on inktip. They liked my writing style and wanted to consider two others and me for an assignment. It was a few weeks before Cannes. They said thay they would come back to me, after Cannes. I haven´t heard from them, since, but anyway, I take it as a compliment.

A rewarded Spanish film director read my next script, ´You win the lottery´, said it was good and recommended me to a production company. I sent mails, called - nothing.
Anyway, a compliment.

A Spanish actor read this last script and recommended it to a big producer in Hollywood. Mailed it. No news from his assistant - but the producer and I kept in touch for a year. I tossed spme ideas, pitched him my new script, he wanted to read this - and then the contact ended.
Anyway, a ....

And of course my next script will be the best one I will have written, so far.

Years ago, a Dutch TV producer said I have the talent and invited some other guys and me for a course Screenwriting, paid by his TV channel, one of the top 3 in the country.

For some writing is.... no less then a drug.

Enjoy your day
