So I have to confess, I was a little nervous about how my Narrative for the opener would go over with the rest of the team, especially Dr. Gage. But he gave me a great compliment in saying that he thought it was a really great start. I had a few inaccurate sequence of events in there, but hey - I'm trying to put together one cohesive story from four accounts, so... Plus I'm not a Theologian - that's what Dr. Gage is there for.

One funny event from the night was when he told me to be careful not to stray too far from the story or pin myself into an area of contradiction. I said that would be impossible to do, because nothing will be finalized without his blessing on the story. We can't go wrong :)

Anyway, the more we talked about how to shape up the story that I had laid out, the more clear the visions started to come to me again. This is going to be such a powerful movie I really can't wait to get started with it. I just wish we were doing this as a feature film, but I'm a little glad we aren't because we would be scrambling to stretch the content and that would not be good.

My next round of writing went even better than my first and last night I was actually able to finish a full first draft of the outline of the story. I really like how it reads but I guess we'll find out next week whether I missed anything or not. I'm sure I did. And even if I didn't, there's always room for improvement. So I can't wait for the feedback to begin so we can start shaping this into the finished product.

I really didn't think we would be as far as we at this point. Must be the hand of God! :)

Well, last night we had our first creative writing meeting via Skype for Mary Magdalene: First at the Tomb. Kendell finally got to introduced Sam and I to Dr. Warren Gage. We have been through this before, but for Kendell and Dr. Gage, this was something new. After briefly discussing how this was going to work, we started discussions based on what we thought might be a good starting point for the movie. Interaction with the whole team then kicked into gear and before you know it, the ideas were flying.

I can't remember the last time we had such a productive meeting. We actually came away with a vision of where we were starting the film - enough for me to start expanding on it into full narrative format. Well, maybe not FULL format, but I was starting to visualize what the movie was looking like and when I get in that zone, it's a very good place to be.

I immediately started writing my ideas down and was on a pretty good flow and continued until I couldn't stay awake any longer. Today I picked up where I left off and this time, finished when the vision for continuing was less clear. That tells me that I'm at a great point to pick it up from there on the next meeting!

See you after that!

We're still rolling full steam ahead with the story narrative. Legal documents are in play as well - just waiting to get them under wraps and then we can officially start talking about the film. Sorry we have had to keep it hush hush this long - and I hope you find it worth the wait when we reveal it to you.

I had a very good writing week while working on the narrative. Got act 1 all laid out and I will be working on act two this weekend.

I'll be on TechVibe Radio next month talking about the future of zoetifex and, pending we have all of the legal stuff wrapped up on the movie, I'll be talking about that too. TechVibe Radio is a radio show produced by the Pittsburgh Technology Council and airs every Saturday at Noon on 104.7 FM here in Pittsburgh. You can listen to it live on iHeartRadio and at - so there is no excuse to miss the show :)

Skype creative sessions will resume the first week of August. Will keep you posted on the progress.

Cheers all!
