How a cult music book became a cult music documentary, and it only took ten years.

Crunch week for ICFM. We’ve finally managed to get through the doors at one of the major record companies. A DVD distributor they work with passed the project on with a recommendation, so on Wednesday our pilot film and our treatment will be debated by their A&R dept. Pretty much simultaneously, our finance guy will be in the US, pitching on our behalf to a mate of his who is, from what we’re told, at the top of the tree in music television. If either one comes through, we’re made up. If both work out, things get very interesting all of a sudden. And if neither happens – well, we just keep on keepin’ on, like a bird that flew.

By coincidence, I’m also waiting for an important meeting on the other project, the drama, to happen this week – basically, meeting a writer who we hope and pray will be right to adapt this property for TV. Once we have her on board, we can take that one full steam ahead too.

And as if that wasn’t enough, I’m shooting a short – sponsored in part by an absinthe company – next weekend, with no budget whatsoever, and no script either, except for what’s in my head.
