I will be taking a break from blogging till May 1st, 2009.
I will be rewriting the movie Born of Marrow.
The original script has a long and twisted story. The first draft was written in the most strange way. I started the story in the middle with the most heart breaking death scene I could write and then worked towards the beginning and end.
The first person I showed it to was Wayne Owens and he told me to toss it in the trash can.
Wayne was as close as I had as a mentor and I can say honestly this didn't slow me down at all.
After I finished the second draft I decided to make the script into a movie. While many of the concepts in the story were very good, spelling and structure were lacking. My friend Ed Downs wrote the third draft of the script.
I will be rewriting the second draft of the script for legal reasons I don't care to get into now.
I'm going back to my experimental roots with this version and will be writing a Branch Movie.
Multiple versions of the movie will be written into a single script.
Branch Movies may be the future of movies.
The Failure of Born of Marrow was the biggest mistake of my life.
I rewrote Born of Marrow as an epic poem about the end of the world. I want to shoot this as a movie but do not have the funds to do so now. 4-29-2009
