El Diablo & The Harbingers

I have two super-cool projects in the works right now - El Diablo and The Harbingers.

I've mentioned The Harbingers on here before - it's an original TV pilot I've been working on for some time (about four years, if you go all the way back to when I had the original idea). Back at the beginning of the year, I entered it into the 2011 Scriptoid TV Challenge and I just heard that it's made it through to the quarter-finals round! The semi-finalists are announced in a couple of weeks, so keep for fingers crossed for me. This one's also in development right now and I've just completed a new draft of the pilot. Hopefully I'll have some more good news to share with you all soon!

The second project is a feature I'm co-writing with Pete Greenwald at Formula Productions. The movie's going to be shot in September this year in Denver, Colorado. It's a lot of fun - it's set in the world of heavy metal music and involves some cool spooky supernatural shenanigans! I love me some horror.

I've been suffering a lot of back and neck pain recently - I think for the most part caused by bad posture when doing all this writing. After a week of agony, I went to the doctor and he gave me some muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory pills. I also bought myself a laptop stand that elevates and tilts my laptop into a better position, and it all seems to be working! I still have some tension but it's slowly easing. In a few weeks' time I'll be spending a long weekend in Monterey - the break should also do me some good.

More soon!
