PINK-production is going well.

Make stuff!

Our film has a cast!

Well now then. 

In less than a week, my first-to-be-produced feature film is going to start getting produceticated, and I don't know whether I'm freaked out, or happy, or in complete emotional denial. 

I'm certainly not blogging on here, or writing much of anything other than emails, emails, and more emails, in between trips to dumpsters to get used cardboard for the production (fun fact: employees of big box stores maybe sometimes throw stuff out all wrapped up nicely, so they can come get it later. Thanks for the brand-new comforter set, disgruntled-and-ethically-challenged employee-person). 

The point! The point!

The point is that I wanted to show you our super-amazing cast, on account of they're amazing. You can learn more about them over at www.pinkthefilm.com - but here you go...

Let's make stuff!

I heartily endorse the checking out of this video. Yes, it's a kickstarter video. But it's also a beautiful creative jump-start for all you artists out there, from a guy who grew up where I did in the Peruvian amazon. Huzzah! Let's make stuff!

This is my brain on film-production.


[ insert loud buzzing noise ]


With principal photography on PINK starting two weeks from tomorrow, I'm juggling forty-two acid-filled water balloons and working from dawn to zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Don't worry. In the words of General Douglas A. MacArthur said in 1942 to the people of the Phillipines when forced by executive order to abandon his post, "I'll be back."

Or wait. No.

That was the governor of California.

Or something.

Everything & Everything & Everything

I've waited AGES for this short to be available online so I could show it to you.
Now it is.
So now I can.
So watch it, already!
It's a little surrealist and weird, but also beautiful (and starring Shane Carruth) and profound.

Support PINK... and me!

I am NEVER going to ask you for anything ever again. Pinky swear. But if you've ever benefitted from anything I've written on here and would like to see me succeed as a professional screenwriter, please take a few minutes to head on over to the FUNDPINKFILM.COM website and consider pre-buying your copy of my first ever feature film, PINK.

By running our own website we avoid the five percent kickstarter fees, but we also miss out on a lot of extra traffic to our project. So we would really appreciate not only your contributions, but also your help in spreading the word.

I want you to picture me as I was at 3 o'clock this morning, bent over my toilet in my underwear, dry-heaving. Not because I'm particularly proud of the fact that the only reason I was up at all was that I'd jolted out of bed to write an email to the director of the film I'm working on (PINK) detailing all the reasons why the sky was falling, but rather because I want you to know that it's going to be all right.
