Michael, I recently launched a substack to journal the making of my first feature film - right now in its very early stages. If you're so inclined, feel free to give it a read!

Yes, please. My brother was the star of one of those smaller movies indie films in 2018, Blaze, so I have a soft spot for them.

Sounds like a great idea. We love getting all those details and the story of a plan coming together with elements like well known creators and artists.

I enjoy your writing, so I’ll read your movie diary—and probably enjoy it!

Ummm. I am one of those background people whose soul AMPTP wants to buy in perpetuity for $186. If it's all the same to you, I would infinitely prefer that the union to whom I pay semi-yearly dues will try to fight for what's fair for all its members before caving.

Are you going to Alfred-Hitchcock-cameo yourself into the movie? Either way, a movie diary would be wonderful.

Very interested in all of this and generally in everything you have to say.

I’ve got zero experience in any of this but I have one tip which I hope is accepted in the spirit of humor: Omit the cock ring scene in this one.
