This blog was set up in 2011 when a small group of people were looking at the possibility of establishing a Screenwriters' Co-op in Adelaide. Amongst other things, we identified a need for an online presence that would make it possible for other people to locate us.
In the beginning, my goals were to:
(a) Provide a point of contact for wannabe screenwriters in Adelaide,
(b) Develop a pool of short films that could be readily accessed, watched and discussed by a group of friends who wanted to write their own short films, and
(c) Pass on information that might be of interest to budding screenwriters/filmmakers living in the Adelaide area.
Today you can find a collection of links to both short films and webseries on the blog. I have accumulated over one hundred examples of each.
The original project fell by the wayside, but as I ran into interesting people from around the world and asked them for interviews, a repository of information (and light entertainment) developed.
Then I had half my nose removed by a plastic surgeon, in the hope of ridding myself of an aggressive skin cancer, only to have a biopsy show lingering remnants in the cartilage. So now I'm enjoying a prolonged course of radiotherapy. Life has many wonders...
Meanwhile, I am, following many requests, republishing The Best Of posts, one per week. Plus I have been unable to resist putting up new, interesting material that I come across. That should keep this blog alive for a little while yet.
Footnote: In 2016, this blog was listed on Feedspot as one of the best Top 50 Screenwriting Blogs on the web.
