OK, OK, here’s the realz:
There’s a competition called Jameson First Shot. It’s been running for a few years and targets emerging filmmakers, particularly writer/directors. Entrants must write and submit a script about the great and/or unexpected things that can happen when you fear less and let life in. Each year a well known actor is involved and scripts must feature them in a key role – this year it’s Dominic West. Three winners get to direct their films with the help of Dana Brunetti, his team and Mr West – wouldn’t that be sweet?
Judging by the track record of previous winners I don’t expect to be selected. However, I do think I have a supah script and even if nothing happens, it’s been time well spent:
I had a writing brief and a deadline to work towards. Now I have a script ready to develop and a point of conversation if I ever find myself in an elevator with Dana or Dominic.
