Latest update… still trying to find a sponsor for Waiting for Tamara, the production team is on the case!
Meanwhile, I have been collaborating on a number of writing projects, globally, whilst looking for suitable employment. Obviously, I’ve also been watching films, comedy shows, YouTube channels and playing PS4 games to hone my multi-tasking skills. Also, I recently went to see comedian Jimeoin perform live at a local theatre.
I have been lucky enough to get a ticket for RTX London on 14/15 October 2017 – which was sold out within 2 hours!! My master plan is to turn up and ask for a job in the Rooster Teeth UK office, should they ever decide to set one up (me and a thousand other hopefuls, probably).
Living near London has many advantages, one of them being the plethora of theatres. Some plays I’ve enjoyed during 2016/17 include: The Comedy about a Bank Robbery (Criterion, Piccadilly Circus, where I previously saw The 39 Steps – both shows very funny), Once in a Lifetime (Young Vic, Waterloo/South Bank), and The End of Longing (Playhouse Theatre) written by and starring Matthew Perry (Chandler from Friends).
A while ago, I was in the studio audience (again) to watch an episode being recorded for the new series of Not Going Out – the one with Emma Bunton and Susie Dent in a jacuzzi. It’s better for me that the the show has moved to Elstree Studios because it took ages to travel to and from Teddington Lock.
So… writing. I’m developing a couple of ideas into scripts for shorts films, no more than 20 minutes. One is a rom-com and the other is a pilot for a sit-com.
Must go, my life of leisure awaits!
