We are pleased to inform you that judging results have been finalized for The 2018 Indie Gathering, and ‘Dreams of Dogwood’ has won 1st place in the drama feature script category. Congratulations!” Yeah, this email felt pretty good. Had a few good days. Then I went back to work polishing my new comedy, ‘The Law of Dogma’. All of my work lately seems to be dog this or dog that. Not sure why that is. I cut my chops with a Midwest production company; ‘The John B. Rogers Producing Company’, staging historical re-enactments in stadiums in the Midwest and South. Kind of an auteur thing. Designed sets, wrote scripts, cast and directed about 250 actors, directed tech, taught farmers and their wives and daughters how to do the cha cha and the can can. (Didn’t sew any costumes.) Tons of fun and even got paid for it. I eventually migrated to LA figuring I’d break into the movie business. I got involved in some AFI productions and did a UCLA extension directing stint. I wrote a few scripts. Even pitched one to Sydney Pollack. But then my life migrated away from Hollywood. A few years ago, I got the itch to write again. After devouring a virtual library of screenplay books, I began pounding the keys. I have a small body of work, about a half dozen scripts, two of which are production-ready. So, writing has given me an outlet for my overactive imagination. My hope is to share my stories and characters with the rest of the world and inspire people to laugh, care, and cry with reflective wonder.
A free-spirited young Buddhist Arhat misbehaves so badly that he qualifies for a little-known amendment to the Law of Karma, the ‘Law of Dogma’, and has to do life as a dog.
