Apart from facebook & twitter.  I've thought of promoting this series on film websites and magazines.

Anything to draw the punters in.

Some of us may already be members of other film websites which might be useful to bring in the traffic.

I am putting the finishing touches on my segment now -- and usually take it as a sign that it is "about time" when people start asking, "when will the next one be posted?"  So there you go.

Plus, Higgs is next up, and I wanted to let him get through his exams -- which ended this week -- before providing him with a fresh distraction.

So, I have just sent the Tanis segments to Gabe for the penultimate episode of SoulShadows.

The final episode -- coming soon -- will be mine.  It is essentially done, though I suspect I will be tweaking it for at least the next week or two.

I have not written much in the past few years, so with something new coming out, I will take a moment to indulge myself a bit in this quiet corner of the boards -- for those who might care to listen.

My sole writing contribution to these boards for about two years now has been maybe 100 or so pages that involve only a single character, in a single locale.  That character is Tanis.  It has actually been pretty tough.

My original intent with Tanis was to just play around and break a few rules -- and to experiment with a few different styles -- while I had the opportunity to do so with just a few pages.

It turns out that Tanis has proven a marvelous tool for that.

In particular, the i-scripts have been enormously helpful -- as I listen to an impartial reader who either gets what I am trying to do -- or misses the point completely.  What a fantastic way to learn what does or does not work on the written page.

Huge props to Don for that -- and to anyone else who might have been involved.  Really.  Thanks a ton.

Which brings us to the backstory for Tanis.  The season (series?) finale of SoulShadows.  Where did she come from, and how did she become who she is?

Props must also be paid to Cornetto for even suggesting such a thing in the first place. I was hesitant at first, but am glad I took him up on it.

"Rules" are broken in this "origins" script -- here and there -- but for specific purpose or additional texture.

I have come to the conclusion that this is part of a writer's voice -- integral to setting one's self apart.

I do respect the detractors for their opinions -- but my own opinion -- formed after listening to all sides for many years -- is that those who dismiss it out-of-hand -- but who otherwise know what they are doing -- well, they are working without a valuable tool in their storytelling toolbox.

So you can go looking for instances of rule-breaking if you want, but I am doing it on purpose -- or maybe trying to make some kind of silly point.  Even I am not really sure.  You can ding me on those aspects if you want -- and I may or may not listen -- or perhaps you may decide that they do work after all.

I do not know if I will ever find myself typing to give Tanis life again. Right now, I think probably not.

I do not post much work here -- and only do so when I feel I have something good to share.  I do think this one is pretty decent.

There are many fine writers on this board -- but if some of you newer guys have never read anything by me and have been waiting for an excuse to do so, you should make it this script.  Particularly if you are a new writer.  You will not be wasting your time.

And if you actually read this far, thanks for indulging me.  I just felt like chatting about it for a bit.  I'm done now.

Bert, looking forward to it. Give Tanis a good send off. Or a re-boot? Loved the idea of this. Giving writers on the site a chance to contribute to the series.

Read many good episodes. Was always hoping I'd have a crack at one. Guess I missed my opportunity.

i've watched many a series of horrors that pailed in comparison to the writing of these. Wouldn't give up yet, But Thats just my opinion.

The series has a market, just need to find it. Definitely looking forward to the finale.

Totally looking forward to Tanis. My most anticipated script since as far as I can remember. Good to see you back in the writing game, Bert, if only for a short time.

BTW, I thought this past season of SS was really terrific. Lots of talented writers involved. How is one to get involved in the third (assuming there will be a third)? I forget who's in charge, I'm afraid to say.

Well, I do see Bert put wrote series finale as (series?) finale so I hope for the best. But I wouldn't presume on someone to work extra just so others can have some fun. I do have a good idea for a ghost story but I suppose I'd write it regardless, were the series to end here. But still, I hope for the best.

Cant wait for that last episode as well, Bert.

I assure you all that I would have my script sent in within this week or Bert will kill me by the end of the week.

Quoted from bert

Actually, much Huger props go to Pia and Michael Cornetto (no, I'm not calling them fat).  

Pia very early on embraced the whole iScripting thing and graciously allowed me to host and promote a number of her iScripts which gave SimplyScripts a large enough (again, not calling anyone fat, here) body of work to justify and sustain an iTunes presence.  (By the way, you can subscribe to the SimplyScripts iTunes feed here.)  The iTunes presence also led to the SimplyScript Radio (or Radio Simply) which Mike Shelton and Michael Cornetto produce.  So, one might say that Pia is the mother of the Soulshadows audio experience.  

Soulshadows is his brain child of Michael Cornetto who has done a phenomenal job producing the series and doing all the art work and coordination and a whole shit-load of proof reading.  

I quite simply do not know how Bert does Tanis for each of the scripts.  You can't just do a quick read of the script and knock something out.  You really have to read and digest the scripts and make sure you really 'get' the story before even putting pen to paper.

Well, just because I think I have taken Tanis about as far as I can take her, that does not necessarily mean that SoulShadows needs to end.

I have discussed it a bit with Cornetto, but not a whole lot.  There are certainly options to be found if the interest is there.


Quoted from James McClung

Hey, thanks alot for that, James.  Really.  I have had fun writing "for myself" again, and getting Tanis out of her cave.  The challenge for this episode has been to make her "worthy" of her cursed existence without also making her a hateful character.

As for more SoulShadows, see above.


Quoted from Angry Bear
...I complained to bert about it taking to long between episodes...


You almost make it sound like we were arguing or something.  For the record, I never argue with armed women.  Bad plan.


Quoted from The Boss
So, one might say that Pia is the mother of the Soulshadows audio experience.


Well, thanks to her, too, then.  And Cornetto -- I might need to get together with him down the road and see if something can't be worked out moving forward.

I do agree this is a good series -- and good for the boards -- but it just took more time than I ever imagined it would.  With all the writing I have done, I have never spent more time staring at a blank screen than working on Tanis haha.

Really the people to be thanking are the writers that got their scripts together for the series.  Without them, there would be no scripts.

This season was a very good one and a long run.  If and when there is another series, it will have a lot to live up to.  

Well done everyone.

I had a problem regarding the Caine episode.  I had the very distinct impression that this piece was not written for the this series, thanks to the man in the dark room.  I received the impression that Gabe was working on a similar series, hence the narration.  

I couldn't shake the feeling that this man was James Colburn, but I'm probably the only one who feels this way.

Anyway, the narrator's role was very disjointed and took me out of the story each time we turned to him.

On a positive note, I thought the story was good.  The mind games played on Caine were nicely done.  Characterization was strong and the similarities to the Bible weren't over-the-top for me.

Hey Phil

Thanks for the read and the comments. I think this review should have been in my script thread but whatever.

I'm shocked on your positve compliments about my script. lol. Thanks. I really worked on this script despite what Jeff said. lol.

I did get this idea from the bible. I actually intended this to be a feature. I have a thread about this topic in the work progress section. But since it failed as a feature, I thought how about a low budget short.

This was my first attempt in using narration in a story and I intended to use it in this series since the other writers didn't. Twillight Zone, Tales from the Criypt, etc...they had narrators. So, I figured I'll try something new. And I wanted to let people know that a sequel was coming.

As many other things, I'm planning to fix those dark scenes in my rewrite that I'm currently working on. I'm going to be changing alot of the material but still keep some. Hopefully, people enjoy the rewrite and understand it.
