For those of you who enjoyed the Inaugural No-Name Movie Podcast, Matt and I did back in December, we’ve set up a new home for it over at The No-Name Movie Blog. Matt and I will both be doing some film-related posts over there, so, if you’re interested, hop on over and check it out. Of possible note:
In other news-ish type things, I’ve started working on my next short film, which is significantly more ambitious (as most “next short films” probably should be) and also, well, darker than LiaE. It’s based on a short story idea I had whilst in London, and it involves a human statue. That’s all I can reveal for now, as it’s still very, very, very early in the process, but I’m pretty excited about the possibilities for this one.
Also on the agenda for the next couple of weeks is doing one more pass on ‘TIL DEATH PARTS US to incorporate some stellar feedback from Lucy V, David and Stuart, and then it’ll be time to start [gasp!] querying. Scary stuff, but it’s doing no one any good sitting in a drawer — at least not me anyway.
So, that’s me in a nutshell at the moment. I’m planning on doing a full write-up of my Oscar picks, but can I just say how sad I am that TANGLED didn’t get nominated? Don’t get me wrong — I loved TOY STORY 3 and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, and I’ve heard lovely things about THE ILLUSIONIST, but come on! Boo. That’s what I have to say about that. How about you all? Any surprises, shocks or disappointments? Anything you want to see now that you didn’t before?
