Just to catch u…

Just to catch up with you all. Last spring I started wto work on a David Cronenberg picture, “Cosmopolis” starring Robert Pattinson and Paul Giamatti, then about last August I started working on a Guillermo Del Toro feature called “Mama”. He hand picked a young Spanish director, Andre Muschietti – it’s in post now in Spain. Now I’ve started an NBC-Universal bigger budgeted tv series called “Defiance”. It’s a very cool script, futuristic – I can’t say much about the script because of the confidentiality, but it’s very cool, and character driven.

A word about the effects of Enron – I’m going to write an article for my blog about this because it’s very interesting how the newer, fully enforced SAS rules are now affecting the big television studios right done in the trenches. Film accounting is still there at it’s basics, but there are several major differences, and in each case I can trace it back to the enforcement of SAS’s at the grass roots level.

There’s also a big change in paper waste. Huge drop in the use of files.

More to come. Once I finish the article I’ll have to get permission to write it – the big studios are big on confidentiality.

All the best to everyone!
