I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

Inspiration of Purpose

I met Lisa Phelps Dawes at last year's Screenwriting Expo. She has an interesting background, and used it to start ScenePlay, about which I remember being intrigued when we spoke. Feel free to poke around her site and see what she has to offer.

Anyway, I just got an email from her about a new Flash movie she made. It is a good inspirational piece, if you ever find yourself becoming frustrated as a screenwriter. So take a peek and find some inner strength. It's just a few minutes long. Enjoy it HERE.

Hey Fun Joe, stumbled onto your blog and very glad I did. I'm an aspiring screenwriter and look forward to reading your thoughts on the craft. Looks like you have links to lots of great resources too. Great blog, keep up the great work.

Hey Fungi!

I wrote a long-ass post on ensemble pieces on my blog in response to a reader, still archived here:

You wrote a long insightful comment, and I wrote a (too) long response too...

...suffice to say, the best of them are united by their THEME...all the characters in all the story lines are dealing w/the same problem for which the movie is often NAMED...be it...

PARENTHOOD,
THE BIG CHILL...or...
LOVE, ACTUALLY...

Horror type movies often have an ensemble cast from which a lead emerges only as her/his compatriots die off one-by-one...vis Alien, and many other slashers...

AND...if you're doing a film about a safari, you gots to take a look at Red Dust, later remade as Mogambo...sorry for posting about other stuff under this topic, came late to the topic.
