Saga of a Screenplay: Initial Ideas

Folks, I’d like to tell you about a screenplay we’ve been writing. Right now, the working title is Nearly a Knight. It’s an exciting fantasy story with all kinds of twists and turns, and we’re really excited about it. But it’s been a long road getting to where we’re at now. That’s the story I want to tell. The story of the development of Nearly a Knight.

Almost every story begins without a title, and this one was no different. One day, back in November of 2009, we were all sitting around the table after a meal. The conversation turned to new movie ideas and somebody mentioned iSundae. We had sworn off any ideas of a threequel, but it kept on coming up. Something was drawing us to it.

Working on Colordeath

I’m quite excited to let everyone that I (Jordan) am the editor for a short film directed by Katie Daniels. I had a great time directing her for Month of the Novel (she wrote the episode The Trap), and now I’m thrilled to swap roles and let her direct me.

The film is called Colordeath and I encourage you to head over to the official website and get all the details there. In the meantime, I’m busily logging footage and smiling at the beauteousness that Katie and her crew shot for this project. This is gonna be good and I feel very privileged to be a part of it.

Now please excuse me. I’ve got to get back to work.

New Handicrafts Made Simple DVD and Other Vague News

I’m pleased to announce that Simply Charlotte Mason has released the Handicrafts Made Simple: Knitting DVD that we shot back in March. We’re very happy with how this one cut together and we had a lot of fun doing it.

But other vague news? Yeah. I know we’ve been quiet lately, but that’s not from a lack of projects. There’s been all sorts of interesting story development and screenwriting going on, but those things don’t make very interesting blog posts, so… More coming when we have something exciting to talk about!
