In Prep

Going into a pitch meeting tomorrow for the comic book movie thing, so today is a day of prep for myself and my co-writer. Going over notes, rehearsing the phrases - telling this producer that, "This is the movie you want to make."

Since this is a horror project, we've been going over the comic and seeing those elements we want to keep or lose and going from there. In many cases we've kept some of the story elements and transferred them to another setting. Reconfigured in this way, we are weaving together a larger mythological canvas, but still maintaining that intimate focus on the characters. Now that I can see and hear these characters, it's a lot more gruesome to put them through the tortures we have devised for them. I was writing those notes the other night and I was scaring myself!

That's how I know we're on the right track.

I would wish you luck, but you know that already. So, hope they have good water or soda for you in the meeting! Too bad you can't swing a lunch out of it.

How can anyone not like Moonboy? MOONBOY RULEZ!
