In the meantime Scarewaves is wrapping up in what has been a very productive screenwriting time for me. In the last eighteen months I have seen two movies out--Meateaters and Haunted House on Sorority Row--and two more in production--one under a nondisclosure and Scarewaves. I completed Doctor Zombie for director Mark Polonia which should go into production this fall. I finished a vampire movie and did an action movie rewrite. I am finishing a sci-fi movie and may be doing another horror rewrite in the coming weeks.
I thought with the collapse of the video store industry and a streaming solution (for the b-movie market) still not fully realized it was all over. But it's not. In some ways the SyFy Channel has filled that space, and it's something we all talk about writing for. There are some inroads for VOD in the b-market (notably Amazon Instant and just a splash of Netflix) but for whatever reason, and nobody can explain it to me, people are still buying DVDs. I think Blu-Ray is more like a collector's market (like Laser Disc was once upon a time), so it has not replaced DVD like some thought. I just don't know, but for now people want scripts so I think I'll poke along for a bit.
Until later I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
