Dodge & Twist & Movies

So again, the news that Dodge & Twist is once more returning to the screen has hit the internet, and once more I’m getting people emailing me about this.

UPDATE: The Mild Bunch

But when the producers we had on board took eighteen months and got nowhere, it was placed back in turnaround in May. That’s when a new producer, Damage Cat Productions came on board.

How A Salesman Can Help You Pitch…

So in a couple of weeks I’m returning to Raindance to run my one day seminar on Writing for Graphic Novels and Screenplays, and part of my seminar is about networking, and more importantly what not to do. They’re rules I’ve used all my career, and now I’m moving into film and TV, I’m finding that they’re even more vital for a screenwriter. [&hellip
