Updates, Skyrim and J.J. Abrams

So, as per my usual, once I get into things I tend to forgo the whole blogging thing and work on said whatever-I’m-in-to. I will try to do better. No point in having a blog if you aren’t going to use it.

So, Updates:

I’ve been in contact with some people at an un-named television station and I’m hoping to hear back from them sooner rather than later. Whether it be good news or bad news at least it’ll be news. I’ve completely re-written “Ripley Madison” and am quite happy with it. This puts me in the “looking for crew” and “casting” phases–which could prove to be both exciting and infuriating. Time will tell.

I still haven’t heard back from J.J. Abrams, I believe it is because he is busy and not a frequent reader of my blog, and not because he doesn’t care–I mean, of course he cares. My script is awesome!

I’ve also started writing another television series pilot, this one not based on someone else’s property, and is tentatively titled “Eden.” It’s a science fiction thriller/chase story set in the not-too-distant-future. I like it, and will post my “elevator pitch” in a future blog…one where I take more than five minutes to compose.

On a slightly nerd-ier note: I started using some “realistic” lighting mods for Skyrim and it’s turned every dungeon into a horror movie. I’m kind of loving it.

Anywho, that’s about it. I’ll write more soon.

Jumping in to the Deep End

I don’t like to say “no” to people. I don’t like receiving “no’s” from people. So, I go out of my way to ensure other people don’t get them from me. That being said, I am doing a good job here, in 2013, at not taking on so much that I get overwhelmed and projects fall short of where I want them. Three projects is good. Four, not so much.

When I got back from my family vacation to “sunny” Indiana, I dove headfirst into two real projects and one not so real project. The first of the projects is my aforementioned web-series I’ve entitled Ripley Madison. I’ve written the first few episodes and am moving right along. In the next few weeks I will be organizing a casting call as well as interviewing crew, which I will probably have to field from my fellow Brooks alumni, or simply post something up at the school to get current students looking to add a web-series to their resumes (wow, run-on-sentence). I say this, because until I’m able to make these first few episodes to help sell a kickstarter page, I’ll need people who are willing to work for free.

I will keep y’all updated as this process moves along.

The next project I dove into is that of my church’s website. They need a new one. I’m working on it on another web address, which I will share at a later date–once I have a more completed, less ugly thing to show you.  But it’s gonna be awesome.  The theory is to streamline the way the viewer views and uses the site, while taking the design forward into the 21st century.  Yeah.

And the third project, which really isn’t a project, so much as it’s me hanging out in Tamriel, has been a great escape.

Yes I play an orc, and yes I punch things to death.  Can’t wait for Elder Scrolls Online.

Anywho, I’m glad to be back.  More later.
