I just finished a paid rewrite on a script. Stars are Danny Glover, Ving Rhames so far. Shooting in May in New Orleans.
And my father passed away last week (1/21/2013) after a long battle with cancer, heart disease, and a whole lot more. He was a tough old Marine and I remember him now as a greater guy than I even thought he was. Going through his things, I found long-forgotten memories and I'm so happy that I can say he was my dad. His funeral was the day before my birthday.
I'm not asking for sympathy. I just wanted to honor him. RIP, George O'Brien, 6/21/1931-1/21/2013. PLEASE DON'T SMOKE!!!
Like most, I'll say, I hate writing this. I'm a screenwriter/director. Forced to produce. Won an award for a screenplay in June, and the doors are opening. I've been struggling for years, but since I want to direct, it's been a difficult road.
Update: Won a screenwriting award in June. Same script is in development and will be shot in NY and Dublin. So far, I plan to direct. I'm also putting another script I wrote up on Kickstarter soon.
I was a music major, theater minor in college. Still write music, but I've focused more on film.
I try to write contacts that are mannerly and nice and I either get no reply at all, or some BS reply. What's with that? Come on; at least reply.
I have dyslexia and ADD. I am a closet stutterer. And I have mild Asperger's. Hit the lotto on that nonsense.
Oh, I was thinking that I might want to date a British girl. Reason is, since I'm Irish, I'd be doing to her what the Brits have been doing to us for centuries. :) jk
Just to let you know, I'm 3/4 Irish, 1/8 German, 1/16 Italian and the other 1/16 Dutch.
