It’s Friday, finally. I really hope, I can finish my screenplay this week. I have been working on it for some time now. It’s time I finished it. So this week, I must work harder to finalize it, at long last. I have written to around page 50 now. So, I am halfway through. It’s not too shabby, after all. I am making some progress. Now I will see if I can write another 50-page or 60-page this weekend, including today. Again, it depends on how long I want my screenplay to be.
My script may look perfunctory now, nothing of importance. As some writers and actors have given me feedback that my screenplay is too literary, which I really appreciated their contributions. But because, I just want to make to the FADE OUT as soon as possible. Everything else can be corrected, afterward. So, for the time being, I won’t be speculating too much about my writing style, grammar, and so on. It is more important for me that I complete my script as quickly as I possibly can for the moment. I have a good, true story to tell. And I must tell it fast since it could help launch my career as a writer & director, which is something I really want to be as well apart from being an actor.
The screenplay will anglicize all locations and characters, to make it easier to make into a movie since the true event happened in Thailand. And I can’t go make movie in Thailand due to limited budget. So to simplify it I must film it here in UK, using actors and locations here instead. And I will hire any actors, partly because to keep the cost down, and partly because to give aspiring actors the opportunity to be seen and noticed.
I want to help people who have strong, genuine interest in Film & TV the chance to perform and show their talents to the world. So, I may hire actors that are not on Spotlight as well. There are talented actors out there that are not on Spotlight, yet. Many of them don’t even have agencies to represent them either. It could be because they don’t have enough credits, yet. Well, people have to start from somewhere. Getting credits can be tough, especially when you’re just starting out or you don’t have an agent that believes in you to push you to auditions.
I want to believe in people. So, my upcoming filmmaking project will involve as many people as possible in all aspects of filmmaking and from different levels.
