I know. It's been a while.
I've been accumulating all sorts of gialli, but haven't been sitting down and watching them. I think I'm about due for another giallo marathon.
Also, Orchid has been making the contest rounds, doing well in a few. It made Quarterfinals in the Writers on the Storm contest, but didn't advance past that. It made it to the Quarterfinals of the Fade In Awards, but the Semis haven't been announced yet. Still waiting to hear from a few more. Also got a lead or two film Inktip that got a bite. I'm trying to remain realistic, so I don't wanna be all super excited for nothing.
I'm considering doing something on my own with Orchid, as well. Some days, I think about a graphic novel. But I can't draw. Or afford to pay someone else to draw.
More possible would be to make a fake trailer for it, like Grindhouse. Or find a way to gather money and just do the whole damn thing. Starting to look into those avenues right now. I'd need a shit ton of money for gels. Or sleep with a professor at school so I could borrow them from the theater ("I'll do that swirly thing you like for a set of violet"). Indie Go Go, perhaps?
Anyhow, I am still writing, too. But this isn't a giallo. I'm working on a romantic comedy with a friend of mine. A nice departure for me, but a bigger challenge as well. I sometimes wanna throw a fedora on somebody and hand them a razor.
When I finish this script, I plan on writing another giallo and revisiting She Has Rebecca's Eyes. Still bridging some gaps between storylines in that and trying to figure it all out.
Okay. I'm gonna relax a bit before I gotta drop my car off for inspection.
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
