Just thought I’d drop you a note letting you know what i’ve been up to. Well it started back in early Jan. as you know the film business is in it’s own recession. Thanks to VFS I’ve done two projects of theirs.
Frank Driscoll, middle-aged retired vet of thirty years. A bean there done that man, but gentle on the inside, still fighting with himself as to which side of love to hope for. Another trip to the airport with one of his clients, finds himself in a melee of disturbances, Suicide, Murder, kidnapping just to mention three.
an who-done-it the brilliant and arrogant team of private investigators are call in by paranoid, eccentric millionaire, that’s me, to find his rare illegal, dangerous beloved pet Lizard- that disappears from it’s terrarium, four suspects are assembled in my large study (may still be hiding) the brothers compete with each other to piece together the complicated web of clues, and solve the mystery. Ah! but there was no Lizard! Written and Directed By Adam Beal.
A sad love story over thirty year, James Me, falls in love with a married woman who has a child, that dies at the age of six. Loses his love, but continues to love her over the next thirty years. The dead daughter is now thirty six in his mind, and they are out in Gas town doing the tourist scene, asking people to take their picture, but with only him there. Dining in restaurants as Father and Daughter but again all alone. The clock tower is a focal point as later tour guides tell the love story to there clients. Written and Directed by Ramin Abdollahi. While shooting that film, I was approached by the Matson sisters, (Canada’s answer to the Cohen Bros.) to lead their next film. Me and Henry, twin brothers, aged 100, going through the last days of life on their hundredth B-day. Really a story about Senior Abuse. Shooting in May.
3. And as you know I’ve been working on my own project, “Writer’s Block” -The Odd Couple waiting for Gadot. We were going to shoot it in Sept. but now it looks like it’ll be feb. Cast and crew of thirteen, 20min. for festivals only.( I need to show my hand as a writer. I hope this is the project.
I have written three Feature film scripts which are in circulation for production.
