This is crazy this is crazy this is crazy

As of this writing, I have white, blue, yellow, pink, green and now goldenrod drafts of PB/AS (not necessarily in that order).

I have crew lists and day out of days and memos and shooting schedules and coolest-of-the-cool so far, a call sheet with my name up in the “Writer” section.

About five years ago, I tagged along with my husband to a conference in New Orleans. He spent his days at the convention center and I hung back in our hotel room, reading introductory books on screenwriting and toying with the raw chunks of story that would become my first screenplay.

Then, yesterday, I called the “Transportation” number on the PB/AS crew list and arranged to be picked-up at the airport by a teamster or somebody… this Tuesday, April 24th… in New Orleans… where I’m going to watch my movie get made.

Is this crazy or what?

About Julie Jaret

Julie Jaret is an American screenwriter with one feature film produced and some others on deck. Her alter-ego needed an outlet, so here we are. Julie lives in the southeast U.S. with her sexy and supportive husband, two funny and beautiful kids, and one big doofus of a dog. She enjoys living vicariously through her fictional characters, often to the point of distraction... (Luckily, her hubby and kids know not to expect dinner at a certain time. Or at all.)
