    Don't End Up With A Cringe-worthy Website

    Thanks Lynn. So glad that either of mine aren't in that category . . . however, my blog could use some TLC. Thanks for posting this.

    Question on Copyright of Names

    I don't think it's a problem except for the readers of your story thinking you copied the name from Skyrim (I'm an elder scrolls player and one of the "dragon born" LOL!) But it's something to research to just in case. https://www.zenimax.com/legal_information This is a limited list of their copyrights, trademarks and logos. Maybe it will help some.

    I'm writer/producer (and head of editing). If you want to know about the project, go to www.fishgateproductions.com and click on projects. We will have a separate website for CopperTown the Movie soon but it's a bit premature at present. Oh and thanks for asking!

    Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement. It's strange because you pray for things like this and work toward them with diligence and then when it begins to happen, it's like Oh No . . . what was I thinking! LOL! The movie industry is so very complicated with many facets of business and legal stuff. The art part nearly gets lost in the paperwork. I'm an artist and the paperwork/production part is daunting. But as you have all said, God would not let it go this far and then abandon me to the lions. I have a great legal advisor/consultant in LA whom I an so thankful for. Thanks again. I shall keep you all posted.

    Hi Friends, Well, it's finally happening and I'm so terrified. We are beginning to cast for our feature film "Copper Town" and I feel as Producer I'm in over my head. Yes, I've produced many times on short films but this is a whole bigger project and I'm praying I'm able to step up. I do have some professional help but there is soooo much to do. I have to tackle the budget today. My budgeting software is daunting!! Anyway, I'm excited and scared. So please keep me in your prayers. I'll keep everyone posted.

    Please Pray For Me. . .

    Writing is a solitary and often lonely art form. But you are an artist and must latch onto God and let him lead you. He has a purpose for your life and your gift and though at times you will walk through the valley of the shadow of death, know that God IS with you. As for human support and comfort, I'm so glad your husband is coming around. Find another writer friend to share your heart and passion with. Only other writers seem to understand.

    Laying Down Your Talent

    This year things are looking more promising. Possibly a movie with purflix . . . long journey and it may never get there but at least it's a chance. Actually more and more Christians are being hired on movies and television as writers.

    Celebrating Pt 2!!!!

    When a person is in negotiations and development of a project with a studio, producer or company, the producer can sue the person for divulging information about the project without the consent of the producer. I don't totally understand the real intricate ins and outs but I do know that the producers do not want the project out there before they are ready to release it. About all one can say is that I am in talks about a project . . . so vague that it would be difficult to track it down. One of the reasons they don't want it out there is that another studio/producer may find out and try to get his/her similar project out there first. Have you ever noticed that sometimes you'll see some movie releases that are very similar. That's not a coincidence . . . I truly hope this goes well for you Nicholas!! Congrats.

    Laying Down Your Talent

    It has been a journey! And I so appreciate your prayers! This year things are beginning to sprout. I've had a couple of nominations, a contract with Parables TV for one of my shorts and the possibility of doing a film with a producer who is connected with Pureflix. Of course, it's all speculation until you get the dotted line but at least there's a possibility which is more than I've had in the past! There are more and more Christians hired as writers for TV and movies in Tinsel Town and we can be so grateful for that. And with actors like Chris Pratt and Denzel Washington and Jim Caviezel willing to share they are Christians surely helps. Many of the studios such as Lionsgate, Fox, Sony and the like have a faith-based/family friendly division because they are beginning to see that there is a large paying audience for those types of movies. So keep praying!. And check out the Hollywood Prayer Network run by people in the industry; http://hollywoodprayernetwork.org/
