“Hmmmm. What should I write about today?”
“Nice To Be Home blog?”suggested Akemi. “Only if you feel that way.”
Yes, it’s great to be home. But for how long? And how long will Toronto be home?
Looks like I’ll be heading back down to L.A. in January to pitch Masked. Before then, I’ve got an SF series bible and script (I’ve been hired) to write, and a veritable mountain of material (books, scripts, overviews, and one-pagers) to review and consider across a variety of genres (sci-fi, fantasy, horror, thrillers, comics). The challenge is not so much in working my way through everything but in selecting what I want to focus on because so many of these properties are truly great.
And then, if I’m fortunate enough to attach myself to a pitch that does go to series, there’s the added uncertainty of not knowing where I’ll be shooting. Toronto, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Montreal, New York – they’re all possibilities. But it would be nice to get Japan in the running.
Tomorrow, I have a morning meeting regarding that horror property I’m VERY interested in pursuing.
Then, I get on the phone to discuss the schedule for that SF series bible and pilot. David and I have made great progress. Once we’ve nailed down the narrative and character arcs, we can start thinking about the pilot in advance of getting in the room with Writer X and beating out our story.
More details as they become available!
In the meantime, it’s nice to be home…
