Shared Imagination has a new screenplay
Shared Imagination Announces A New Screenplay
After eight months of concentrated effort – HENRY and PAULINE
Learning how to write a screenplay has been an incredibly exciting and sometimes heart wrenching experience. I discovered the craft’s vertical learning curve head-on when I began to write GRACE. For me, the experience was akin to getting to the top of Whistler Mountain in British Columbia. I’m very fortunate to have been there, it’s a staggeringly beautiful place. However, one has to get up to the top to appreciate it and accessing the peak requires a long ride on a death-defying chair-lift. I am not a big fan of high places unless I’m inside something immovable like the C.N. Tower or securely fastened to something solid like the seat in a A-380. Sitting on the wooden slats of a chair hanging 500 feet above craggy ice-covered mountain tops is not one of them. I was thoroughly terrified. It was only once my feet were firmly planted on the snow cap that it became an everlasting memory. These days, writing is more like attacking the downhill portion of that double-black diamond run and I can tell you that it was much more fun than going up. Instead of the hunt and peck method I used to get through all of the research material and how-to books, I’ve been able to breeze through the creative process with relative ease.
Henry and Pauline is about class struggle, corruption and bigotry which culminate in a giant mistake that alters the lives of two people forever.
I’ve handed it over to my editor…Stay tuned for updates.
