While out on Saturday with UK screenbloggers, I made a promise which may seem somewhat foolhardy.
I asked each of them what their target for next year was, and promised a bottle of Sainsbury’s own brand champagne if they achieved it. (Not such a bad prize – apparently it beats all of the more expensive champagnes in a blind taste test.)
So, for the record, here’s what they need to do to win.
4 x completed 1 hour TV Drama. One bottle per.
2 x feature films completed and sent to production companies. One bottle per.
A 6-part TV series commissioned. (1 bottle)
To be the script editor or writer on a film that begins principal photography in 2007. (1 bottle)
A first draft of a feature film. (1 bottle)
Win or place in a competition with a short film script. (1 bottle)
Writer on a completed short film (1 bottle)
What about me?
Well, Optimistic Reader has kindly put up for my target, which is to have a completed short film which I’ve both written and directed.
I was after an easier target, but she insisted on both.
Ha. Champagne’s as good as mine.
