The Near Death Experience seems to be taking up all the time allotted in every day life at the moment (if you didn’t know, that’s my debut feature film, I haven’t nearly died recently). I have been ‘researching’ lately and saw a really great movie directed by Sidney Lumet (starring Philip Seymour Hoffman) called ‘Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead’. It’s really fascinating to watch all those beautiful long observatory takes pay off so well. There are plenty of reasons why they work for this movie, and I guess it has something to do with the two aforementioned names! The screenwriter (for TNDE) Michael Kospiah has recently taken our suggestions on board for the 3rd draft of the script, and I must say… we’re heading in the right direction!
In other news, Dancing With The Pros 2 has been fast tracked into production, with shooting to take place late February/early March. The script (which I wrote) is currently in the 8th draft, with a number of actors already confirmed to star including Corey Sheridan (as Yuri Ka), John Barker (as Fred DeFan), Penelope Andrews (as Dana Golden) and myself as Uncle Farr Ka.
