Screenplay Reading


I finally got to hear a reading of my screenplay out loud by voices other than those in my head! Yay! I received some great feedback that will be helpful towards my final script. I haven’t had a chance to work on it yet because I’ve been so busy with the Taste Better Wit show. Now that it’s over, I can move forward with my next project – grant writing. I need to figure out how I am going to get money to make this short film. I have a lot of good things going for this film so far.

1) The topic is related to negative body image. I’d like to bring light to a topic that I’ve been concerned about for a very long time. Magazines, fashion, television, & movies all tend to worship the “skinny bitch” image for women and I don’t condone it. I know I am always trying to lose weight but there’s a difference between doing it for health or for happiness.

2) I have a fantastic comedian as the director. He’s actually my favorite comedian, Kevin Camia. I approached him about the idea and since he’s a professional in comedy, he will be guiding me on the final script and directing it! What a dream this is.

3) I have the full support of my friends. Roles I need to fill: Music composer-check. Band-check. Makeup artist-check. Choreographer-check. Producer-check. Assistant director-check. Now, all I need is to hold an audition and get some actors, then do a call out for crew when I’m ready.

4) Cameo time from one of my favorite comedians! I was inspired & wanted to write in a quick character in my script based on a character that one of my favorite comedians created. However, the only person I could see playing that part was him. So I hit him up somehow and he said he was definitely open to it because he had never done that before. Yay!! Imagine my enthusiasm when he told me that. I don’t want to reveal who it is because I don’t want to jinx myself so I’ll just be keeping my fingers crossed.

Other than that, life is treating me well and I am extremely excited for things to come. It’s a lot of hard work but the payoff is astoundingly rewarding.
