“Jim, it’s Life as we Know It!” – Writing the Recollection of the Twelve-Days in the Wilderness’ 2018
A few good men require an evaluation of a project.
“I’ve written The Fault in My Brain. I’ve been willing to send it out there into the world to have Thom, Dick and Harry make their comments and I’ve taken them on-board.”
Then I started a new project which I’m writing and directing, in which I’m confident and comfortable in those roles, called The Year of Broken Glass.
Then I started breaking down the scenes from both films and discovered that although I don’t want to direct TFMIB, I can’t let it go. Whatever anyone else wants to do, I can’t let it go. It can’t be turned into anyone else’s project. It’s got to be my screenplay which is my vision.
The very bad, very bad news, is that I now realise I can’t turn TFIMB over to someone else unless they want to make the film I want to make.
I can do it within the limited resources of a limited budget.
I need Carol Hughes to organise the other bits and pieces.
I can do it myself, with a good producer.
