It's all been mad, lately. In a good way. No, make that a great way.
First things first: Look At Me, the short film collaboration between director Dan Turner and I (and of course a top-notch cast and crew) is finished. I've seen it and am really happy. It looks gorgeous in High Definition and I couldn't hope for a better first production credit. We're going to show it to people in a Soho, London screening room soon, which is simultaneously exciting and scary. Mostly exciting.
I've also just handed Dan the second draft of our feature film screenplay ASK (a code-name acronym, as opposed to a biopic about the rise and rise of the popular pizza restaurant chain), which I really feel is heading in the right direction. There'll inevitably be further drafts as we strive for perfection, but hopefully we now have the foundations in place. Oh, and over on his blog, Dan is offering a prize (possibly a Hot Chip album, or maybe just a hot chip) to anyone who can guess what ASK stands for. Naturally, bloggers who I may have told while drunk, are exempt from entering.
The last couple of weeks have also seen me toiling over a colossal feature for Doctor Who Magazine, titled The 100 Greatest Death Scenes of Doctor Who. When I came up with the idea, for some reason my brain didn't quite register how long 100 mini-articles would take to write and compile. But I've loved doing it, and hopefully the end result, in next month's issue, should be entertaining.
Throw in the fact that I'm still Acting Reviews Ed at heat magazine, and the past 14 days have just seemed to be 100% work, literally from start to finish. This weekend, incredibly, I don't seem to have any work to do. Or at least, I've made sure I don't. So it's all gonna be about relaxation and fun stuff. Time to fish a Corona out of the fridge, I'm saying...
