Novice. I've written and shot some one-person skits, and have written some sketches for a cast, but don't have a cast or any collaborators. You can see them at www.mystudio.net/helenroper11. I have a lot of writing experience (former newspaper reporter, grant writer, other stuff here and there), but I haven't written a screenplay.
Sketch comedy, feature. I wrote a few documentary-style short pieces for CNN in 1999. I would like to do documentary in the future, but at the moment I want to write a particular comedy feature. I have ideas for another couple after that.
It depends on location, time, cost, etc., and how helpful they are to my writing. I hate to commit to anything for the next months at the moment, because I'd like to do some traveling this fall.
No answer yet
I am hoping to crank out a first draft of my first screenplay by the end of the year. I'm still figuring out the plot and characters. I'm interested in comedy, and have performed as an understudy with a local improv troupe for most of the year.
