I have revised my drama script to page 20 today. I will not do more for today. I will continue with the assessment tomorrow for 10-20 more pages. Then, I will have rewritten about 40 pages so far. During the weekend, I will try to finish the rest which is about 60-80 pages left. So, 30 pages on Sat. and 30 pages on Sun. All together will be about 100 pages screenplay. Well, if I aim to have only 100 pages. If I want 120 pages manuscript, then I may have to do the rewrite about 40 pages on Sat. and 40 pages on Sun. as well. I think, it looks more manageable now when I break it down into small chunks for each day to complete it. 40 Pages each day is achievable since I already wrote the script. This is just to correct the grammar and add or subtract something. 3 More days, then my screenplay is completely done!
If I didn’t win any competitions, then I would make the movie myself. I am almost certain about that. Yes, I plan to send my drama screenplay to various contests. But since I want to, perhaps, make the movie myself, so it doesn’t matter that much if I win or not. The story is personal to me. I will therefore most likely to make the movie myself. I just want to send it to competitions, just to try because I have never sent a script to win a prize before. So, it could be interesting. I think it would be a good experience regardless. So why not? Then, in the meantime, I have time to run around and make my horror short “Blood Group O.”
After I have got the drama screenplay out of the way, I will start practising my film pitch for fund to make the feature film after the short film. This is going to be fun, pitching for fund. I have never done it before. So, I have to be well-prepared. But I have been talking about my film concept almost daily and to practically everybody I have met. So, hopefully, doing the pitching shouldn’t be that challenging for me 🙂
