Produced Screenwriter Brian Watanabe drops by…

Brian Watanabe, who has the same Hollywood manager as I do (Andrew Kersey), just dropped by the CWC office in Daikanyama, Tokyo, Japan. His ScreenwritingExpo3 award winning script, ROGUE’S GALLERY, has just wrapped principal photography in LA with actors Ving Rhames, Ellen Barkin, Maggie Q, Odette Yustman, Bob Odenkirk, Adam Scott, and Rob Corddry. DANNY DARKO and SOUTHLAND TALES director, Richard Kelly and his producer Scott McKittrick are producing along with a few others.

Brian and his lovely wife, Jen, are proud Black Dog Clan members.

Born and raised in Hawaii, they have already fulfilled one of the two requirements for clanhood — killing a roach — many times!

We expect great things from Brian in the future. Look for ROGUE’S GALLERY in theaters (or if not there, at least on dvd!) sometime in 2009.

I don’t know! But I’m hoping to find out.

Some thoughts as of the present:

DOG EATERS has a MySpace page now. We have a banner (the three images below that can be used separately or all together as you see), and it’s being posted where html is allowed, but I’m not really sure how effective it’s going to be. At this point is seems like a numbers game — quantity over quality, all surface no depth, notches on the bed post, scalps on the belt

In a week or so, we’ve racked up over 100 seemingly interesting friends — dozens everyday — including Jon Favreau (director of Iron Man, the movie), Harry Knowles (Ain’t it Cool), musicians, artists, movie people, and a bevy of web beauties whose interests run to comics and graphic novels (really?), but it has not really increased hits on this site or views of the DOG EATER YouTube trailer. But the hits and views haven’t gone down, so that’s probably something to cheer about.

While some projects and artists make it look easy, it’s been readily apparent that it’s very difficult to cut through the clutter, static and noise of all the other products, projects, movies, personalities, celebrities, etc clamoring for our attention (and money) on the internet. Indeed, the million dollar question is: “What does it take? Will it be the cream or scum that rises to the top?” Or is the image more important than the content?

Well, we’ll know more when the first issue of DOG EATERS comes out November 5. I’ll be keeping you posted.

DOG EATERS has joined forces with BLUE CAT!!

Posted on 09.09.08 under Uncategorized

What happens when a dog eater meets a blue cat? That question has been plaguing me all night and so I am typing this in the complete darkness at 4 AM on the lanai of a Maui condo as the waves crash against the beach…

Blue Cat Screenplay will be letting the world know of the existence of DOG EATERS and we are very happy to have them as new members of the clan.

Okay, here comes the sun… I can see my fingers, now!

Seen in Paia, Maui. I had to ask, “Hey, who cut this dog’s hair?”
