This week I am beginning work on an exciting new project: I am adapting a short story into a film script. I am ridiculously excited about this. I love film and have always longed to try my hand at writing a script – I may have even started a particularly rubbish attempt in my schooldays – so it really is a brilliant opportunity.
Co-managed by Jodi Cleghorn and Devin Watson, the short films will adapt stories from the Literary Mix Tapes anthology ‘Nothing but Flowers’. I will be adapting PJ Kaiser’s fantastic story ‘Golden Opportunity’.
I’m only just starting to work my way through the scriptwriting handbook, but I will keep you posted on the progress.
