Dee Dee “Awakening” S01E02 First Revision

Posted in Dee Dee with tags , , , on December 20, 2014 by Kaden Brown

For anyone who has read the original screenplay “Dee Dee” from many moons ago (2009/10), there is a follow-up episode screenplay now available they may be interested in.

"X" marks the spot where Dee Dee gets killed...

“X” marks the spot where Dee Dee gets killed in “Dee Dee”…

The episode was called “Awakening” and packaged in a series called “Blood Ties”. It follows the awakening of Dee Dee after her late-night attack outside her home in the Wellington suburb of Petone. The script is dated 27/11/2010. This episode later morphed into “Rhesus A” whilst “Dee Dee” morphed into the Vancouver-set screenplay “The Fall of Dee“.

The final scenes have been deleted from this copy. The series was never optioned, never produced, but hey – it was a fun experience. (If you are after the Final Draft version of something drop me a line.)

When the current book (“Wear A Flower In Your Hair…“) is all finished and published there is absolutely no doubt that I will be returning to screenwriting. It is where my heart is and after an absence of a few years there are some brilliant projects waiting to be hammered out.

On that issue, locally, there is some great young drama talent that I would dearly love to work with. So in the back of my head is a musical that one day may get done. Though, now I think about it, there are so many projects to do, where on earth do I start? A huge dream is to write for Kristen Stewart (and Rob too?) so maybe that could be possible… who knows. It’s a dream.

“The Fall of Dee” Screenplay

Posted in Dee Dee, Lilith, Uncategorized, Update with tags , , , , , , on January 8, 2013 by Kaden Brown

It’s been a while, so here is a quick update on things.

No editing of “Lilith” has started yet due to travel and moving. Hopefully things get started at some stage.

Plus, my screenplay “The Fall of Dee” has been submitted to Amazon Studios. Hopefully, things go well and it garners some attention.

Happy new year everyone.

I got proof!

Blow me down. The proof copy of Vanguard Newborn has finally arrived, totally blowing my mind. Maybe I need a celebration. It will have to wait until I have read the thing in totality though.

First looks and having read chapters 1-3 and I am surprised. Shocked. Elated! The book is way better than I had anticipated. Like, ready to pick-up from Paper Plus and buy. Really, really overwhelming to say the least.

Sure, there are a few (very few actually) things that may need fixing for the book to be absolutely perfect. Whether-or-not I fix those things will have to be decided over the next weeks or so. In the bigger scheme of things they are so minor I’m certain any reader will barely notice them.

In the next week the retail price for VN will be decided, as will the possibility of distribution outside of the US. I’m not happy with the forecasted price, hoping that it could be kept well below the NZ$30 mark (preferably RRP of NZ$22.99 or thereabouts). We’ll have to see.

Regardless, I gotta keep on writing.

A unified immortal world?

Posted in Dee Dee, Lilith, Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn, Uncategorized, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 16, 2011 by Kaden Brown

Now that I am writing Lilith and things are going along nicely, I am sorely tempted to cross-the-line and introduce characters from Vanguard Newborn. There are some similarities between the two worlds:

1. Both focus on immortal individuals.

2. The lead character in each book is female.

3. Sub-characters include witches, vampires, angels and the white-haired Si-kee.

I know it was not planned to write the second book as part of the Ashley Zetterburg Books of the Black Society, and Lilith certainly is not even eligible to be in the Black Society or any other Vampyre Council organization. She is a Dark Immortal. Human yes, but immortal.

So it would be an interesting world if some characters crossed each book series. After-all, some characters definately could cross the lines: The weird and awful smelling Si-Kee and the angels could easily appear in both worlds. They are friends with vamps, humans and eachother… I will decide later though. The concept is attractive – hugely.

In other news, a little reminder that my film ideas are still up for voting at MakeMyMovie.co.nz, screenplays Sadie  and Dee Dee are available at Simply Scripts. I am deciding if I publish a 44 minute script (a follow-up episode to the Dee Dee “Pilot” script) to Simply Scripts. On the issue of screenwriting, with three film scripts in the works, “59 Harewood” (horror), “State of Trance” (thriller), and “Define Better” (drama about the pharmaceutical industry) it has been decided to cease script work for now to enable more work on Lilith to get done.

With other things also bubbling in the background (various courses and work) decisions about priority have to be taken.

First chapter of Lilith is here

Posted in Dee Dee, Lilith, Update with tags , , , , on September 19, 2011 by Kaden Brown

As a tease I thought to put the first chapters of Lilith on here for all and sundrie to read and comment on.

Today it is the first chapter… later ones will include chapters up to and including chapter four.

Also, don’t forget to vote in the MakeMyMovie competition where I have Dee Dee and the violent thriller (and hitherto secret project of mine) State of Trance up for public vote.

Vote for Dee Dee

Posted in Dee Dee with tags , , , on September 15, 2011 by Kaden Brown

The story of Dee Dee is written in a screenplay, which I introduced you to a few posts back. You can read the script here.

I would love her story to get told in film. Now you can vote for Dee Dee to actually get made into that film.

Make My Movie is running the competition and I need everyone to go to the site and vote… I included a bloody movie poster to get readers in the mood.

 

The more votes we get the greater the likelihood is that the film can get the corporate support and investment. Fingers crossed.
