This was to go out a couple of weeks from now, but I got a sneak peek at something that I wanted to share. That would be Sebastian Gutierrez's December 8, 2002 Revised Second Draft of Gothika (pdf format). Thanks to The Daily Script for the sneak peek.
If you haven't been to the site in a while, I do want to let you know that what was ScriptMag on the site is now VoiceOver. Same free newsletter about script writing, just a new name. Why the new name? Well, Shelly, the Editor-in-Chief of Scr(i)pt Magazine was extraordinarily polite in her message to Henrik and me pointing out that Scr(i)pt Magazine is found at http://www.scriptmag.com and that there was great potential for confusion between the two. So, the SimplyScripts screen writing magazine is now VoiceOver. Henrik tells me that the next issue is coming out in February.
What I've been watching (flIk-sin) verb to watch DVDs
Spirited Away - Created by Hayao Miyazaki, this was the highest grossing film in Japanese box-office history. The Fat Kid and the Skinny Kid have watched this nearly everyday for the past month. While Disney is closing down it's 'two-D' animation studio in favor of 'three-D' animation, Sprited Away is a dazzling, hand drawn (two-D) story of a petulant little girl, Chihiro, who is plunged into an alternate reality - a resort for traditional Japanese gods and spirits run by the greedy Yubaba. Chihiro's parents are put under a spell and our little heroine must do whatever's necessary to free them and return back to the human world.

Actually, we enjoyed Spirited Away so much that we bought the Miyazaki 3 Pack (Spirited Away/Castle in the Sky/Kiki's Delivery Service)
