This was a busy last week. Last Tuesday I auditioned for the latest Tom Cruise movie called MENA. It was a small part… a very small part. BUT, last Friday I was informed that I booked the part. Hey, it’s a Tom Cruise movie, right? Directed by Doug Liman, the man behind Swingers, Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow. He actually cast me himself. Pretty cool. So, June 5th I’ll fly to Atlanta to shoot the film. There were only small parts available and I got one of them so I consider myself lucky.
The greater accomplishment was that last Friday, I officially finished the first draft of “Brandini” – my latest screenplay that I wrote with Kvibe Productions newly formed developmental team that I’m the head of. We originally workshopped the idea for three weeks and I guided the group through the writing structure of a screenplay and then I went away for three weeks and wrote the screenplay. Now that we’ve greenlit the script, I will work on a new draft with some tweaks and changes. The goal is to get to a 2nd draft before May 12th where I’ll be traveling to NY. I’ll be there for two weeks at which point I’ll schedule a read through with some actors. That’s when I’ll see what I really think of the piece. All in all, it’s a very exciting time. Heck I even raised the first $15k for development of Brandini. Khoa and I are very excited to see where this film takes us.
Like I said, it’s been a busy week.
