FIRST: Thanks to YOU, we’ve updated our IMDb page for short film Reasons I Hate Being Single officially to pre-production! Whoo!
SECOND: We now have the very basics covered to make the movie, but of course we’re NOT making a basic movie. So: have a look at the extraordinary and unique items in our webstore. You’ll find signed play scripts from screenwriter Heather, and the one-of-a-kind storyboards leading to Heather’s first short, Monster Cat!
Thank you again to everyone tuning into the Write-a-Thon livestream this weekend. The resulting play has now been entered into the Alberta Playwriting Competition, and if it wins, the prize money will go towards the production of Reasons I Hate Being Single.
Last: Thanks also to everyone who pre-ordered from the Purdy’s Easter Bunny! Deliveries are expected the week of April 3.
With apologies, the Write-a-thon livestream will have to be cut short.
Another play by Heather talked out her diagnosis of endometriosis …which is making itself known today.
Thanks to everyone who joined the stream, donated, and spread the word.
We are at Hour 17 of the 24-Hour Write-a-Thon in support of our next short film!
The plan now: writer Heather has a FINISHED FIRST DRAFT of a full-length play, thanks to viewers’ prompts and donations.
Next – she’ll spend the rest of the time revising the play, FINISH it, and submit to the Alberta Playwriting Competition by 6 pm tonight!
Do visit the livestream to cheer her on, and donate if you can.
I’ve just been informed (can you tell I’m new to this?) that no one can chat with the write on the YouTube livestream without having a YouTube channel of their own!
So: Please send me character names HERE at takeabite instead!
