So There's A Movie Made From My Script -

Sort of. It's a feature length (95 min.) "test movie" that Amazon Studios made of my screenplay "Touching Blue", an animatic to serve as a way to have people experience the whole story in a visual sense, rather than having to read the script.

It's a development tool - it's not supposed to be the end-all, be-all of anything. In fact, I've already written a new draft - the one in the animatic is the one that won last June.

I have some quibbles about some of the voice work, and the music is often awful. But a lot of it is cool - and the closest I've come to actually having a script made. So that's nice.

Plus it's easy to just graze around, and skip ahead.
