Representation

I'm thrilled to announce that as of today I officially have an agent. This is a HUGE step towards a screenwriting career. And the good news is... I very much like my agent. He's got a great attitude. It seems like such a great match.

And by the way, the producer option deal finally came my way... and predictably, though still disappointedly, the deals are not good. But at this point that's just fine, because Paul (my agent) wants to try to sell both of the scripts anyway, and for a much better deal than I'd get from a new producer.

Congratulations, Jase!!!! And I'm glad you went with Paul; I liked what you wrote about him. Wow!!!!! If Paul Castro likes him, that goes a long way!

By the way, Pop & I saw August Rush and loved it. Pop cried.

Thats awesome!! Did you ever think that you'd realistically ever have an agent? Thats just so cool!

That's an interesting question, Jason. And the answer would be different depending on when you asked me. Before I made it into UCLA, no. When I first found out I made it, yes. Once I got to UCLA and realized that agents were still really really hard to get, no. Once I started winning some competitions, yes. Once the people who wanted to read my stuff that won in competitions said it wasn't right for them, no. And the list goes on.

Overall though once I got into UCLA I did think I would, but I certainly didn't think it would be this soon. It's very exciting.
