Re: What are you Writing?


Currently I'm writing a sci fi screenplay centered on the concept of subliminal suggestion. I just know it's an Academy Award winning work in progress, but for the last several months have made little progress.

So my interest is turning to a screenplay featuring the Battle of Breed's Hill (aka Bunker Hill). A script that would be faithful in all basic respects to what actually happened there, as opposed to the myths.

Huge challenges, of course. The numbers of actors needed, for one thing. This can be surmounted, however, with computer animation and/or clever scene setups such as that demonstrated in such films as My Boy Jack, a WW 1 film starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Believe it or not,I am writing a story set in the late 1930's in the age of radio in America,on an unsolved murder case. Fictional of course,and it's affects on the detective that is investigating it. It is kind of X-Filesish.
