If you haven't seen it yet, I think it's about time you did. Of course my role was the same as before. A carry-over credit from last spring. And it looks like The Good Boys have settled on a logo. And it's my fave next to the Flexoids' one. Which is The Good Boys [Used Condoms Edition]. And this just happens to be the censored version. James got scared and decided the uncensored version was too extreme for their sponsors. I tried to clean it up a bit and he hrmmed and said that might work. But I guess he went for my second fave which is the toy gun jolly roger. At one point they were toying around with the idea of using several different logos at the end of each episode, but possibly for consistancy they settled on the jolly roger. That's a-okay in my book.
In Other News...
My manager seems pretty confident about putting Island Macabre out on the market. I'm working on a new draft presently that expands a lot of characters and subplots. Originally, the script was 93 pages, but it looks like it's gonna be a big, fat, juicy 105. My original intention was to keep it as small as possible to post on Inktip. For those who don't know, Inktip is a little marketing site where you can post your script and hope to score a few interests and possibly sell your work. But the thing they DON'T tell you at Inktip, is that most of the producers there are small to micro-budget companies. So, if you have a big budget, high concept story, don't bother. Inktip just raised it's prices last year right in the middle of an economic crisis. That puts a pinch in a writer's pocket.
The Holiday Break
Not only was I doing some PG-Porn and some Sparky & Mikaela stuff, I was also working on a small film noir script over the holiday break. I cranked out an 85-page rough draft of a script called The Bruise Box that centers around one setting and a very small cast. The intention was to make it appealing to post on Inktip and to possibly shoot myself if I wanted. It still needs to be expanded a bit and some kinks worked out, but I'm pretty happy with it. It's a dark, complicated, psycho-thriller that uses a Rawhead and Bloodybones parallel to tell the story. Only Rawhead and Bloodybones in this case are cops. Yep. Did a lot of research on cops this past season. You'd probably seen me post a lot of police-related stuff on James's page. But this is the story about the bad guys who wind up being the good guys. And the police who end up being the bad guys.
Doing research on a lot of bounty hunters. My next project will be a buddy story about hot bounty hunter chicks that go around snatching up bad guys and committing a lot of mayhem along the way. Been watching a lot of Dog The Bounty Hunter and up next is Family Bonds. This next project is gonna be fun. After writing something dark and twisted like The Bruise Box, I want to do something that's just plain fun.
One Last Thing...
James is gonna be on Jeffnuts again this Wednesday so be sure to watch. If you miss it, don't sweat it. I'm sure they'll archive it nice and pretty. If you missed the last time he was on, check it out here.
And where the fuck are all the jiggas?! Where you folks at? It's gettin' lonely over at the JGAS boards. Got a bunch of stuff to chill about!
Later days and have fun,
The Ablazin' Devil Head has spoken
