It happens every time I write a script. About halfway through the process, I get bogged down. I become convinced that what I’ve got isn’t working, that whatever writing ability I once possessed has deserted me and that, very soon, I’ll be called out as a fraud , forced to hand off my script to a more capable writer, and have to take a job as a chimney sweep. Invariably, I push ahead, complete the script, and end up very happy with the finished product. Except this time is different. I’m bogged down. What I’ve got isn’t working and it’s clear that whatever writing ability I once possessed has deserted me. And it’s only a matter of time before my fellow producers find out!
On the bright side, I can always look back fondly on past glories – like last night’s episode of SGU, Awakening. I’ve got more than a few things to say about this episode, but I’m going to wait until it airs in Canada before weighing in with the behind-the-scenes tidbits. But since you’re here, why not check out some of the pics and vids from the day we shot the shuttle crash sequence from Aftermath…
Compare to the finished sequence –
I’m mired in this script, have to head into post tomorrow for some all day editing and, to top it off, I just discovered I missed the Die Antwoord concert at the Commodore the other night. And I was going to ask Yo-Landi Vi$$er out for crispy duck. Damn!
