My producing partners and I recently received Cogeco development funding for my SciFi comedy webseries, Women Are From Mars. We are currently applying to the IPF for production funding and the more views of our trailer we receive the greater our likelihood of getting funding.

Please check out our short trailer here, laugh and share:

NSI Totally Television Bootcamp – Phase One Wrapped

nsi totally tv

My producing partner Jaime Escallon Buraglia and I had a fantastic week working on our half-hour episodic ensemble TV comedy show, Parental Advisory, with the National Screen Institute Totally Television team. We had the chance to work with a great story editor in Josh Gal and to meet and interact with many people in the Canadian TV industry – from show runners to broadcast executives.

The show is based in the world of a dysfunctional PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and is in the same world as our bravoFACT funded short, Parental Advisory: Disciplinary Measures. You can check out our blog posts from the program here.

We are energized and inspired to work on the project and apply for Phase Two.

Wish us luck.

My screenplay invited to sunny California. It promises to buy me a tshirt and write me a postcard

My crime comedy screenplay (working title F.o.G., inspired by the book ICED: The Story of Organized Crime in Canada) has been invited to L.A. (well OK Universal City) to participate in the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) Media Market. My producers (lulo films and Lumanity Productions) will meet with various funders, dealmakers, distributors etc. to secure interest and support for the project. My bag is packed if they suddenly need the writer to come down.

Rolling with marblemedia again

Working again with the folks at marblemedia on two more fun projects.

The first is a Walkthrough script for a submission to various award granting juries (such as the Emmys) for Splatalot, the cross platform tween challenge. I’ve had a lot of fun getting to write in faux Tolkienese on the project. In the meantime I have got addicted to some of the gaming on the site, particularly splatting the SplataLittles who run around the site.

The second is an introductory script to a game, Nomatics, found on the What’s In A Name website. Project still to be unveiled this month but let it be said that I have enjoyed helping create an entertaining frame and text for the game.

 

Working with marblemedia again

Happy to be working with marblemedia again. Last time I got a Gemini out of it. Well, I got to look at the Gemini. From behind glass. Until security tasered me.

This time I’m working on a short script for a “sizzler” trying to sell a TV series/website format to international buyers.

BTW I have decided ‘The Sizzler’ will be my new Super Villain name. Also a good name for a hamburger. Hmm. Now I’m thinking of the Hamburglar – perhaps the worst villain ever.
