I’ve found a script I want to film — a thing that NEVER happens, usually.
Pleasingly, I made contact with the writer via this blog (and FaceBook). Which is kind of what happened with NATAN.
The script is about sex, drugs, celebrity, dying young, throwing pies, playing at life and being too adorable for your own good.
I happen to think it’s potentially very commercial, not because of who it’s about but because of what it’s about. And it’s exciting — things which are exciting are by their nature potentially appealing to a wide audience. More importantly for me, I’m just in love with it.
What’s needed now is a producer, because however much we grumble about them, they are the people without whom nothing ever happens. So I thought it would be kind of appropriate to use the blog to put the call out (while also using other methods) to see if there’s anyone out there who is a producer looking for a project. A producer with some knowledge and skills and contacts. Or, if you’re not that person, maybe you know someone?
The story takes place in Hollywood — it can be filmed mostly anywhere but it would make good sense to shoot it there…
If this approach doesn’t seem strictly professional, trust me, I’m using other methods too. Just thought it would be silly to have this organ at my disposal and not use it for this purpose. If you get in touch I can tell you more/show you the script.
