Comic Con Film Festival

I’m proud to announce that SERIAL DATING, the short film I co-wrote/co-produced with Bernie Su last year for the 48 Hour Film Festival, has been accepted into the Comic Con Film Festival!

Our film will be screening on Friday, July 25 at 6:30 PM in room 26AB. We’ll be doing a short Q&A after the film (which is itself very short). We’d love to have you come out to support our film!

For those who aren’t familiar with it, SERIAL DATING placed as the runner up in last year’s 48 Hour Film Festival, won the Best Acting award for our leads, and advanced us to the VISA Invitational. Given the very short time and budget, I think it turned out pretty darn good.

If you haven’t seen it, check it out below. I will say that this is a very dark transfer of the film, and if you want to see it in all its glory, come to Comic Con!

The full festival schedule is here.

She Returns

Yes, hello, I’m back. Wow, I need to do some dusting, remove the cobwebs…

So, did you miss me? I missed you! No, I did. Honest!

Noticed we’re getting a trickle of new tv news lately…but right now, I’m more concerned with how everyone’s writing is going. So, answer the following in comments:

1. Are you currently writing? (this had better be a yes)

1a. If you are NOT writing, what is your deal?
1b. If you are writing, what are you working on — new draft, rewrite, tv, film, etc?

2. Do you see yourself entering any contests or fellowships this year? What is your goal before the end of 2008? What do you want to have accomplished?

Believe me, I know that second question is really tough — looking ahead is difficult, especially when mired in a draft. But, I’ve found it important to take stock of where I am and where I want to be over the last month, and there’s a pretty wide chasm between the two. I’ve got some work ahead of me.

Tomorrow, we’ll get back to business. I’m also gonna be spinning up some new blogtastic ideas. Stay tuned, as we say…
