If its my kinda writing, why not. You know what, Jules (whispers) I'm actually hoping I get to adapt some of my favorite books into movies - like The Stand by Stephen King or The Catcher In The Rye by J.D.Salinger. Salinger wouldn't give anyone the deal, though. He says Hollywood will mess his book up. Cant blame him. Its the greatest book ever!
I have read "The Catcher in The Rye" I do agree it is an excellent book. Mine is a romance so I do not believe it is your genre, however I thank you for responding. I would be happy to read some of your writing though.
You're welcome. If you go thru my Short Stories hubs, you'll get an idea of the kind of stuff I write. I recommend the hubs, The Keeper and The Godhood: Two Very Short Stories, They Call Me Fiery CJ - A Rant About Murder The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Then perhaps The Horrorscope series.
Do you need actors fierycj? I remember when I was young in my teens, and the boys would pick on me, because I loved to sing and dance, I would get so mad, I told them "you just wait and see, I'm going to make it to Hollywood someday and I will be the one laughing all the way to the bank" So, is this my chance fierycj? ...lol...Go back home, to my class reunion, and say see I made it to the big time.....lol...just teasing, I'm not all that in to making movies anymore. But fierycj I wish you all the best, and I will be looking for you on the Big Screen. Dee
I shoot micro-budget horror films (17 so far), and sell them at comic/horror fan conventions throughout the southwest. I've written, directed, acted, photographed, done special effects, and edited. So, yes, I'm interested in making movies. -Steve Bentley DTVideo Grapevine, Tx DFW Mid-Cities
I've worked on a couple low budget horror films, (gaffer, sound, fx) but I'm a screenwriter. I have 12 under my belt and 2 of them are being actively pursued. If it happens it happens but in the meantime, I still write.
I'm working on one now that I may consider producing myself if I can't land a deal. I have no desire to be behind a camera but being a producer is more my thing. I have access to a great filmmaking community here in Chicago. Not going to discuss it here but think (In the Valley of Elah meets Frailty)
I am sure that most writers are familiar with the nightmares that can come from Fiverr - where you work for 2 hours writing an article to earn $3.92 after Fiverr and Paypal fees. But, for those who are fast writers, or...
Do you think that horror movies negatively influence society?This is meant to be purposely open and interpreted however you like - do they cause crime? Nightmares? Insomnia? Lack of respect? What do you think?
What is your favorite movie genre (drama, romance, comedy, horror, sci-fi, thriller) and why?Maybe it is a combination of a few different themes, but what genre of movie do you generally enjoy and what do you think...
