Construction of a Screenplay, Part 3 - The First Draft
I won’t lie. I was a little nervous. The treatment for the film adaptation of Andrew Wilkie’s book Axis of Deceit had been sent to the man himself. How would he react? Would he hate it? Dismiss us as nobodies? Would the project sink before it even reached s...

Construction of a Screenplay, Part 2 - Beat Sheet & Treatment
What do you do when you have an idea for a screenplay? Or in

A farewell concert at the Ellington Jazz Club. New

Top Ten Theatre Productions in 2017 - Plays
Here we are again. Another year gone. Another year full of theatrical treats. Yes, I know I said I wouldn’t be reviewing in 2017. But as some predicted, late in the year, the bug bit and I was back to writing full reviews instead of snippets. Three of those...
