Former Stargate Special Features Producer Ivon Bartok is helming the trailer that will accompany my horror script when it eventually goes out. He’s been at it for weeks now – shooting, sourcing, editing. The trailer, as envisioned, breaks down into five section (and subsequent sub-sections) and we’ve got two of four done. Of course, depending on how things come along, we may not use every planned sequence so it’s important to see how things cut together. As Ivon has gone along, assembling the footage, I’ve offered him notes and we’ve bounced ideas back and forth. I think it’s looking great but the most challenging sequences await. Ivon is still looking for the perfect location.
On the script front, got some notes from Rob who readily admitted he’s not a big fan of the genre (or sub-genre to be more precise since the horror category is fairly general). I’m going to try to address them over the next couple of days and, ideally, get the script off to my agent(s) before the weekend. And, after that, it’ll be smooooooooooooth sailing!
Great feedback from our U.S. agent on Paul’s pilot script. Now it’s just a matter of deciding when to go out with it.
Apparently, that’s not the only decision in our not too distant future. Our agent asked Paul if we would be interested in staffing on an existing show. Paul (who I suspect is going a little stir crazy at home) told him he’d be interested but couldn’t speak on my behalf. For my part, I’m…undecided. And pretty damn comfortable working from home. Accepting a staff position would mean moving to Los Angeles, something I’m not sure I’m prepared to do. I suppose it would depend on the show.
Also today, Paul and I pitched out our vision for that horror television series. The ball is in their court.
