I’ve been digging through some of my old work, especially my writing the past few months. It’s been a strange experience because I have entire folders of writing that I don’t remember. I can tell it’s my voice in some of the sentences, but overall it sounds so foreign. I think because I have focused on non-fiction for so long now that revisiting my fiction work was a bit of a shock. Still, there are certain familiar themes I’m encountering as I read my older work with fresh eyes. One thread that has always been there and will continue to be is the supernatural. I wrote the words to Magic Hour for Alan Algee several years ago. It was my first time writing from the perspective of a child and I loved it.
The styling for this short film is visually stunning.
The direction is the stuff magical realism is made of.
The young actress I wrote dialogue for is delightful.
I haven’t tried to write an entire screenplay before but I’ve always had a passion for cinema.
Maybe one day.
