Proud father to the best 5 year old ever! Growing up, I wanted to work on the original Batman and Star Trek television shows. (Would take Lost in Space though.)

Writer and ex-filmmaker from Indianapolis who quit the indie movie industry after giving it twenty years of my life. Now I'm an aviation guy.

Hi there. Apologies I couldn't get to your forum reply in time before the thread shut, but I always love to meet a fellow screenwriter on here (even if it's a former one), so if you'd like to talk shop sometime, let me know. :)

Hey, its all good!  Thanks for getting back to me.  Sure, networking is always good in this heartbreaking industry.  That's why I have a variety of interests to keep my writing funded.  I used to make films but now focusing on my graphic novel when time allows.  My day job is an entrepreneur for my aviation charter business. 

Where are you currently at with your writing? What is your favorite genre? 

Thanks Snapperz!

- Chris

What sort of films did you make? Do you have an IMDB? 
That's a pretty cool day job. Are you a pilot then? 
It's good to have so many things to fall back on. You don't think you'd ever go back to film? 

I've got all my eggs in the screenwriting basket at the moment. I've been doing some ongoing contract work with a company in LA. They basically hire me whenever they need someone to write a good thriller. I've got four on the go with them right now. All spec work, so I'm eagerly awaiting for something to get the greenlight. I've had some luck with directors (I have the director of Sleeping With The Enemy attached to one of my scripts, but it's been casting FOREVER) but I'm getting to learn how slow and nuanced the whole industry is. Makes you want to put your head through a wall.

I mostly made low budget stuff. The biggest and most popular was Star Trek vs Batman, a fanfilm.  Goofy, but fun goofy!

Everything changed when I lost my Dad and had my son. It was no longer about movies, but about providing so I gave it up. I still write, mostly for my graphic novel, but movies and the entire industry are finished for me.  The closest I ever "got inside" was dating Mel Gibson's agents niece, but that didn't yield anything either.  www.imdb.com/name/nm1862326 Not namedropping, but just sayin'.  ;)

But even aviation is really setup for failure too.  Investment banking, finance, all of it.  There are sharks in every industry really.  But for me its a nice balance because aviation is something fun for me.  I don't fly, I'm too chicken to get behind the wheel. LOL

What do you prefer writing mostly?  If you had your choice, what genre?  I dabble in almost everything.  But yea, "been there and done that" in LA putting my head through the wall.

Hi Chris!

Nice to meet you! (The name's Daniel)

Not at the moment, because not many people submit deviations. I'd like to see that change, it just hasn't yet.

Same to you!

Peace,
Daniel
