Jeeze, what’s up with me, eh? So quiet, what the hell have i been doing?
Well, the television pilot that failed to get off the ground with CBC last year is so close to getting off the ground with CBC Television again (different department, *ahem* newer, “younger” management *ahem*) that I’ve been holding off saying anything, because I’m afraid of jinxing it.
So, maybe I just did jinx it by mentioning it, but… meh… at this point I’ve been waiting so long to get this thing made, I’m ready to burn the script and call it a day.
But honestly, I’ve got a good feeling about it this time. It’s with good people and I honestly think that it will finally move forward soon.
There. That’s the kiss of death. This show will never happen now.
I finished the FOURTH draft of the radio pilot (I’m quick on the re-write), which we’re scheduled to record in early May.
I’m really happy with it, and only have one person in mind for the cast, i want to audition people and see what they bring to the parts – which is totally the opposite of the “Steve” series’ where all the parts were tailor made for people.
Finally, because of my trip to New York at the end of April, I’ve had to confront a life long fear of flying, and travelling in general.
So… In order to get ready, and to conquer my fear, I flew out to Montreal on Wednesday to visit a friend, and flew back today.
Man, no matter what happens, if both pilots tank, if i never work in this business again, I could care less right now. I just did the thing that has terrified me for longer than I can remember.
And I kinda enjoyed it.
