So This Is Development Hell

The script ('Personal Jesus') continues to be redrafted, closer and closer to something that can be pitched in order to get the necessary finances. Between now and the initial meeting at the CCA, I've had several meetings with the director, with the development officer, with both of them, going over the story and refining it and getting it closer and closer to something like a shooting script (as opposed to something which merely describes the story with added dialogue).

It's a lot of work for something that might not happen, but it's better not to think that way. It might well happen, it might well not. Part of me wonders if it's better not to detail all the to-ing and fro-ing in case it does all fall flat on its face, but, eh.

A new review, this time from a German online site. Not too shabby, though given the aforementioned link is run through a translation engine, perhaps also unintentionally amusing.

A week or so ago, I made it along to a spoken-word performance night put together by one or two of the GSFWC-ers, under the name 'Word Dogs'. Some of the performances were excellent. Gavin Inglis was great, having come all the way over from Edinburgh to perform 'Fall of the House of Fraser'. I wish the guy would hurry up and get a video of one of his performances up on YouTube or similar so you could see how good he is, although perhaps some of the more 'Scottish' humour might be lost on our overseas brethren.
