A screenplay in pre-production…

During my break from University, while having surgery and treatment for cancer, I saw a post online from Sonder Pictures UK, they were looking for screenplay submissions. I had a radio play completed and with only one day to submit before the deadline decided to forward it, even though it wasn’t a screenplay. Sonder Pictures selected it, and I’ve been rewriting it to convert it into a suitable screenplay ever since.
We plan to film Bread and Jam in 2018, we’re currently in the pre-production phase. I’m feeling rather excited and quite scared too because the owner of Sonder Pictures, Nicole, has asked me to direct the movie. It’s about a couple, Hector and George, who move from a City to live in a small rural town, the people in the new community, the heartache and the joy they experience.
To gain some experience I’ve worked as an actress a few times now. Nothing physically demanding, my health won’t allow for that. I’ve loved every single minute of it and wished I’d done it years ago as a career. My favourite work has been as a voice actress, and so far I’ve recorded fifteen monologue pieces for fifteen writers.
I’ve started casting actors for the roles, and I’m working with two excellent script editors, Louis and Bradley. The situation feels like a dream right now, and I’m afraid of waking up, just in case it is a dream. I feel like we’re on an exhilarating roller coaster ride at the moment, and I plan to enjoy it for as long as it lasts.
