Dispatches from the road

Who doesn't love finding one in their actual mailbox?

Nothing like finding one in your mailbox

Visiting my folks this week, so not much time for writing. That being said, there are a few items worth mentioning…

-The Tracking Board Launchpad top 10 finalists were named earlier this week, and I was not one of them. It was a little disappointing to not see my name on the new list, but I can still claim to be one of the semifinalists, which is at least something.

The logline to DREAMSHIP is now officially posted as part of the contest update, so now it’s a wait-and-see situation regarding being contacted by potential reps. Which leads me to…

-Having an actual face-to-face meeting with my manager today, so I’ve been working on questions to ask and topics to discuss. Looking forward to hearing feedback on the latest (and hopefully final) rewrite.

This is a great chance for both of us to further explore what we’re both hoping to achieve, and what we can do to get there. Should be interesting.

-Your thoughts on summer movies so far? Hoping to see STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS this week, and looking forward to MAN OF STEEL next week. IRON MAN 3 was fun. No interest whatsoever in HANGOVER 3 or AFTER EARTH.

As much as I enjoy a lot of these fanboy films, it would be nice to see more original stuff (the forthcoming PACIFIC RIM, for example). Sequels, remakes and reboots can only carry you so far.

-The fine folks at United were generous enough to let us use the DirectTV for free on the flight here, so got to see WRECK-IT RALPH again. Still fun. Wish they’d do that all the time.

      Thanks! Anything on your end?

        TB asked me for more details (“My script is like x meets y”, etc) and said that every script that made the semis will get its own landing page on the site. TB seem very focused on trying to help everyone who got on the Launch Pad list, which is great. So now I’ll have to wait and see…

        I got that too. They weren’t crazy about my original “X meets Y”, and my wife came up with a great alternative. I also came up with a better logline, which they’ve yet to use.

        I thought the landing pages were going to be up yesterday, but we’ll see.

        Best of luck, and keep me posted. (I think I’ve got your email via the blog’s inner workings; I’ll contact you that way)
