My neighbors up the road are replacing their roof and their incessant hammering makes it sound like its World War III outside. Luckily I’m taking today off to hang out with my wife and hopefully fit in a little bit of wine tasting. April was a ridiculously busy month and went by as a blur.
Over the past week and a half, I’ve been doing some coverage for the San Francisco Film Society, attending an array of events at the San Francisco International Film Festival. I was able to take in a number of great films (Be sure to check out THE INTOUCHABLES when it’s widely released) and even attend a conversation with screenwriter David Webb Peoples (UNFORGIVEN, BLADE RUNNER).
We screened SLY SYLVESTER at the Sacramento International Film Festival last week. It was by far the biggest crowd that has seen the project, and though I was rocking nervously in the back, the overall reception was super positive. A number of friends and family came out as well, which was really touching.
Last night I made my submission to this year’s Nicholl Fellowship. I ended up deciding just to submit one of my features, instead of two, because I feel like the second still needs some work and I don’t want to submit anything that’s not ready.
Plus, my freelance work has completely exploded as of late. I have my plate full of projects.
Tomorrow, freelance responsibilities and diving in head-first on my next script. Today, however, relaxation.
