hello there, it’s been a while!

Hello there, it’s been a while. A long while. I’ve been meaning to check in. I really should have. We’ve had lockdown one. We’ve had lockdown two.

We endure, with lockdown three.

There’s been a lot of sock knitting, I can tell you that much.

But there’s more. I’ve also been writing. During Lockdown two, I wrote a screenplay.

(I also wrote about dragons, but more on that later this year.)

This screen play. Well, remember Devan Coultrie?

A story was selected from Postcards from Peace: A Peace Series Collection. ‘Devan Coultrie is Unwell’ in fact.

There is now cast. We’ve found our leading man, a bar man and even our Narrator. There has been a virtual cast meet up/reading too. This was amazing, truly quite epic to see and hear the story come alive. I think there may have been a tear in my eye when that happened. I’m really very grateful, to Chris Hills from JA media who will be producing.

At the moment, due to pandemic restrictions, we’re very limited in what we can do and how. When we can, we will be looking into locations. The plan being to premier the short film later this year.

But we’re missing someone. We’re missing an Aditi! We’re missing an actor of South-Asian ascent, aged between 35-40, who is Birmingham based. Any one out there who could help?!
