As I said before in a couple of articles ago that I took up on Rob Schnieder's advice to write a script. So I've been concentrating on writing screenplays for several years now. When I wrote my short film called 'The Face Of America' it wasn't really in script format, it was basically an outline and most was improvised during filming. Much like how Buster Keaton used to make comedy shorts back in the 1920's. He never used or seen a script until he got to MGM. So 'The Face Of America' outline doesn't cut it for a screenplay.
I wrote a short film called 'Don't Call Me, I'll Call You' which... Read More

I don’t know about the rest of you reading this but I’ve come by my love of The Coen Brothers honestly. I’ve been a fan of theirs ever since I saw 1984’s “Blood Simple” during its original theatrical run. I had even seen 1985’s “Crimewave” in a 42end Street grindhouse. But most people didn’t notice them until 1987’s “Raising Arizona” which probably was their first major mainstream hit. And rightfully so. Even today in TV series like “My Name Is Earl” you can see the influence of “Raising Arizona”. They continued their amazing career with one of the best crime/gangster movies ever made: “Miller’s...

Just because you have Daniel Day-Lewis in your movie does not mean that you can forego everything else, namely, - an equally stunning supporting cast, character development, a complete, well-developed story, and last but not least, - editing. If your going to make what is essentially a 3 hour movie, you'd better have some compelling reasons for doing it. Day-Lewis in the title role is a compelling reason, but he can't do it alone, and that is exactly where director and writer Paul Thomas Anderson leaves him, - stranded and alone on the screen with mediocre dialogue, a still-born story,...

This whole writer’s strike business is getting hairy…really, really hairy. Now that Warner Brothers is rumored to be cutting up to 1,000 jobs and the Golden Globes have been reduced to a press conference, I don’t know what to think.Will the Oscars be next? What’s a fashion designer to do? Some days I wonder if it will ever end. For awhile (back in November,) I was thankful for my freedom, sans WGA membership. As an unaffiliated writer, I could write to my little heart’s content while supporting the WGA union writers and their cause.“Hey, I’ve got no guild to tie me down,To make me fret and... Read More
