The Script is Finished!
Cooper and I finished the script for MY SPIRITED SISTER last night. Very exciting. We experienced the common writers' reluctance to write the last scene. It's an interesting phenomenon that Syd Field talks about in his book, "Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting". You spend so much time with a script that you enjoy the journey. It becomes your baby and it's sometimes difficult to let go.
As veteran writers, we knew what was happening and pushed through it. Now we can look forward to the next phase. We can get the script into the hands of our lead actors and schedule rehearsals. We can also start thinking about casting the other parts.
We can start to fill out the crew and get the script into the hands of our department heads and really start planning the film. Moving ahead to the next step is always fun and a true thrill. Plus, we've still got a crowd funding campaign to run. We will continue to reach out to everyone we can to make this movie happen.
