Last weekend, when I should have been well into writing the script, I was still struggling on the treatment. I managed to get a rough sketch done but was worried I wasn't going to get an entire script written by 18th July which was my target.
Then on Tuesday, I was having lunch with some colleagues including our new director of professional services at mValent, Tom Bennett. Tom mentioned that he writes screenplays.
I told him about the project and yesterday sent him my treatment. That night he went home and wrote a brilliant first five pages—far better than I could have done.
So he's on board. I should have a first draft from him by the end of the week which means we can start scheduling, casting and location scouting.
