I spent a chunk of time yesterday hanging out with Damian, the screenwriter from the movie Iím working on.  More than anyone else, I wanted to meet him and talk about the craft.

Heís living a dream come true -- something he wrote is being made into a movie with big names attached.  Has the potential to be a hit too.

Damianís a regular bloke haling from Australia.  Itís his first time in Regina, and I quickly indoctrinated him into the Rider Nation.  Took him and his wife to the Rider game yesterday and I introduced him to the Romanian Syndicate.  The guys took a liking to him.  He said he had a great time at the game as well.

We wound up spending more time talking about hopes and dreams rather than the technical aspects of the craft itself.  Heís not much into musing about the nuts and bolts of story design.  He just writes.

In 20 minutes Iíll be meeting him again in front of his hotel and weíll be slipping away to the sound stage to shoot an interview.  After that, weíll be driving out to Moose Jaw to be on set. 

I donít plan to stay long.  Iím behind on my editing and really want to make a dent there by tomorrow evening.

The Riders lost to Montreal by the way, and I really donít want to get into it.
