What’s up in May? Bunches. For one thing, we’ll find out whether the WGA and AMPTP come to an agreement on contracts or don’t — if they don’t, screenwriters are going on strike on May 2.

That has me a little tense.





The Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting Competition deadline hits May 1. Ahhh!

Did you enter?





After you collapse post Nicholl deadline and WGA/AMPTP strike trauma, I’m teaching three master screenwriting classes that begin May 16:


:::THE ART OF THE PITCH:::

:::DIALOGUE WRITING:::

:::THE FIRST 30 PAGES:::


NO PRESSURE!

But you might want to grab those seats now if you are planning on attending, I’m seating those classes now.




*There are several other competition deadlines on the horizon to be aware of:

Knock ’em dead.

I get bored talking about me so let’s talk about something more fun.

Let’s talk about my shoes!

Yay!

[Just kidding.]

[Not really, my shoes are totally fun.]

[But.]

You know I have to do that right? It is sort of my job.

Oops.

film festival frenzy!

November 4, 2015

Austin Film Festival was fun — and exhausting. That is a lot of socializing for someone who spends most of her days alone with bed hair facing off with a hostile computer. Here are some fun pics.

 

Also there is more crazy good AFW news for November :::go see:::

Also there is more crazy good AFW news for November :::go see:::

When I am not amusing myself creating Max Action Figure and Max Pop Queen Paper Doll, [hey I need sanity breaks shut up] or attempting to meet writing deadlines [I’m on it, Pooks!], or working on webinar compilations [on it, Shannon!], I am usually working my ass off at AFW. And we had a really cool month this month — and it’s not over yet, Austin Film Festival is around the corner so things may get more exciting still. Here is some of the current good news  —

One of my baby writers just got hired for his first writing gig. Yay yay yay! Which is so cool. But also a secret. I don’t know what’s up with this new secret stuff. This has happened five times. My babies getting hired but it’s not announced. People used to send out press releases about hiring a writer to work on a project. Now it is all hush hush and non-public. I suspect this is about not wanting the writers to all show up at the studio cafeteria at the same table and share wage info. But I could be wrong. And it’s still so super cool another one of my workshoppers just got hired I’ll live with it.

5150 Online Screenwriting Workshop

The workshop launching these sassy secret careers is 5150. An international online screenwriting workshop. Interested? We have two open seats due to people being out on assignments. Find out more at :::5150:::

 

AND! I’m currently working on a webinar project with Stage 32 and Stage 32 is having a sassy party in Austin at the Austin Film Festival so if you are hitting the festival? I’ll be at the Stage 32 party on October 30th. Hit :::NEWS::: to find out how you can attend too. I’d love to see you.

 

Smooches!

You knew it would not end with SeeMaxRun, right? Of course not. The real goal was to vevamp the AFW site I just got sidetracked along the way.  So now AFW is revamped. It is a work in progress but it is coming together. Stop by and tell me what you think.

Screen shot 2015-06-13 at 1.54.26 AMIt seemed time to put up a gallery. I and the denizens of AFW and 5150 are not always real good about grabbing photos, but there are photos, there is a Flickr page, and here she is —
