The long-awaited virtual screening of Nowhere Normal is coming!
Please join us for a virtual screening of Nowhere Normal at 2 pm on May 28, 2023.
The screening will include not only Nowhere Normal, but all the short films of our producer, Heather Morrow.
Janine Waddell, the director of our second short film Reasons I Hate Being Single, and producer screenwriter Heather, will attend!
The screening is free, though we’ll be accepting generous donations towards Reasons.
Mark your calendars now.
Tomorrow is the day! Starting at 6 pm, and going straight through to 6 pm on March 25, 2023, YOU can tell ME how to write something brand new!
Also: should you want to help make our film Reasons I Hate Being Single and buy Easter chocolate, tomorrow is also your last day to order.
Our Write-a-thon will be in exactly two weeks! Here are some ground rules for the event:
-I will write a new, full-length play, in 24 hours. The live stream will begin at 6 pm on Friday, March 24, 2023, and will end at 6 pm on Saturday, March 25, 2023. The live stream will be embedded in takeabite.ca , and donations must come via that website.
-Viewers will see a split-screen: on one side, me getting more tired and frantic: on the other side, the play as it’s being written!
-Here is the play’s basic plot:
“3 very different people meet online at the start of the pandemic. They connect, but as the pandemic wears on, their individual lives change, which alters their relationship.”
-At 6 pm on March 24, YOU will give me names for the 3 characters! The first 3 donors will get to provide one name each. Submissions will be via the website.
-Every 60 minutes, I will check prompts and donor amounts. Whoever has donated the most in that 60-minute period will get their prompt used next! I must use the prompt, and I must make it make sense.
-At the end of the 24 hours, whoever has donated the highest amount will pick the name for the villain of Reasons I Hate Being Single !
I will have until March 31, 2023 to fix typos, and then the resulting play will be entered into the Alberta Playwriting Competition.
We’d like to give a huge thank-you to Fat Franks for agreeing to be part of Reasons I Hate Being Single ! Audiences will see a Fat Franks hot dog cart in the film, and they’ll also provide on-set catering for the cast and crew.
Please visit one of their restaurants or outside in the spring and summer!
Thank you to everyone who’s supported us, and the Easter Bunny so far.
Please note: the campaign email address is MINE: email@example.com . Contact screenwriter Heather with any questions or for information about the film!
You have 2 weeks left to get your Easter chocolate bought here, AND support our next film at the same time, as long as you live in Edmonton. Deadline to order is March 24.
