I am an IT guy, using my time to do what I love, which is write, read, write, view, films. I had opportunities in LA in the 80's, worked in Platoon (before he became Johnny Depp!), and POW the Escape (Kill Bill Guy, Mr. Kwai Chang Cain himself R.I.P.). and went off to Hollywood to contact people whom I had worked with and Cannon Films went under. I ended up working for a living, but now I am back at it with a vengeance. I have several stories done, one of which actually had legs in 2005 (oh, budgets!) some in development, and others in my mind. I have taken the last two years and studied screen writing, so I know structure, pacing, beats like the back of my hand. If you ain't on beat, I'm gonna tell you. My weakness is character, something I'm trying to work on is tell a character in one sentence, like the preview in Drive - "My hands are dirty." "So are mine." Tells EVERYTHING about the antagonist, and I haven't even seen the film! Brilliant. What I would like to accomplish here is network with as many people who are in the industry, collaborate on writing, get something made. We all love film, and we wouldn't be here if we didn't.
