“I wrote it. It’s done. Now I just got to type it up.”
“Type it up? It’s not finished until you type it up. We’ve got to read it.”
– ZODIAC (2007)

As of a few minutes ago, I finally finished the first draft of my feature film screenplay. It’s been a long time in the making and it’s one of the hardest things I have ever written I think. It’s taken me quite some time too. But there’s a tremendous sense of relief too. Finally that first draft. Beginning to end. Clocking in at 108 pages. Next up, real quick, is the second draft and then it’s going out into the open.

The beginning.

    Congrats Baris!

    Ik ben zeer benieuwd naar je draft en indien de mogelijkheid er is om het te lezen, dan hoor ik dat maar al te graag van je!

    Sowieso een keer bijpraten / meeten / biertje scoren; je bent met toffe projecten bezig zie ik!

    Keep the good stuff coming!

    Cheers,
    Richard.

      Hey Richard, bedankt gozer, ik zal je zeker een kopie geven als ik een presenteerbare tweede versie heb. Ben benieuwd naar je opmerkingen.

      En dat bijpraten/meeten/biertje scoren doen we snel!

    Well Baris, it’s really great to hear this from you. It must have been a long fight and a big experience ! I remember well your way to write, your way to describe situations and the perception of all that happens between a guy and a place. I’m really curious to see the result for a feature. Have good time my friend…
