How far would you go to try to get your movie made?

How about nearly 4,500 miles?

That's how far I'm going on 16th October - from Dublin, Ireland to the Austin Film Festival in Texas, to try to meet some people who can help me achieve my dream. I've never had a movie made. I don't know anyone else going to the festival. In fact, I don't know if there are any other Europeans going. The trip is going to make a hole in my savings. And last but not least, I've signed up to do a pitch on one of my spec scripts, in front of a roomful of film industry types.

And I can't wait!!!!! Roll on 16th October, roll on the famous Texas barbecue, the Stetson hats, the bridge with the famous bats (??) and lots and lots of movies...
