Lucy Hay has has recently been championing my screenplay Phoebe Langtry, which is really good of her.
“Phil was one of my Pitch Me finalists with his screenplay, PHOEBE LANGTRY, the true story of a woman who is abandoned by her husband, yet builds a windmill back in 1812, when women were not allowed to own property. I loved the script and had no notes, so was happy to forward it to people I thought may also like it.”
So she’s sent it on to various producers, agents etc and BBC Films is also reading it. As it seems to be on a bit of a roll I’ve created a Facebook page for Phoebe, where I’ll put up a lot of the research that I did in order to write it.
..and then quite separately I’ve been keeping people up to date on my John Lennon’s Turd comedy film, which is currently at the rather un-newsworthy and boring edit stage.
I have recently got rather fed up with the barrage of requests for crowdfunding, Facebook likes etc. …and I didn’t want to add to the deluge, so I came up with the idea of listing 10 reasons why people shouldn’t like my John Lennon’s Turd Facebook page.
As a bit of fun I put it up on Lucy Hay’s blog. ..as I poke fun at her in the list. I hoped she would get the joke. ( Irony doesn’t always work well on the Net.)
.. and then was amazed when she loved it and reposted it on multiple blogs and websites.
Here’s what she said……
I’ve been talking about bad use of social media recently re: constant lobbying for “Likes” etc … So when this popped up in one of my FB streams late Monday night, I was so impressed with such a deviation from the “norm”, I thought it deserved a wider audience. Over to you, Phil!
