Writing for Inkwell Newswatch has allowed me to look at myself from a different perspective. Most of what I write about is from personal experience. Being forced to write about those experiences in a finite set of words has helped me to crystallize the experiences. That exercise allows me to have a discourse about those experiences, see them from a more objective perspective, and see what I am doing and what I could do better.
While IN is on hiatus, I won't be; and you shouldn't be either. My daughter and I will have been trying our best to make it out to Hollywood. Hopefully we will have some good news to pass along by then. If you have any specific questions on writing or the film business you can email me at email@example.com. I'll also try to update my website more often (http://www.geocities.com/hgbprod/). I've recently given it a quick update.
I finished the Costa Rica psychological drama feature entitled Touching Van Gogh. Made a little money. That was nice and a start. I finished the feature horror set in an abandoned drive in; appropriately titled Drive In. Hopefully, we can wrangle the money to get that one made and me paid. The next step in my plan is to get one of my projects on the screen. Right now I'm working at getting my TV series concepts organized. I've written four episodes for both Double Edged Sword and West Law. I'm trying to generate the story ideas for at least one full season. My daughter's boyfriend knows an agent that he said he'd put me in contact with. So thatís my focus right now before we move to LA. I'll try and get the feature and TV series synopsis on my website for those of you who are interested. You can email me as well.
And you can go to Sacredbloods.com and see my daughter, Joy Robinson, as Julie, and her boyfriend, Peter Zhmutski, as Caligula. Double Edged Sword is based on her character in the movie Sacred Bloods.
While IN is being redesigned, if you have any comments or topic suggestions for my column here, let me know. Maybe I'll use them in the 2009 relaunch.
And write on!
