Our latest straight-to-audio podcast is with screenwriter and #ScriptChat co-founder, Jeanne Veillette Bowerman.
I’ve been friends with Bowerman for a few years now, having discovered her and the #ScriptChat community while working at Script Magazine. In fact, I started her off as a columnist on ScriptMag.com with her weekly column, “Balls of Steel.”
Along with co-founding and moderating #ScriptChat, the Twitter-based weekly screenwriting chat group, Bowerman is also adapting the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Slavery by Another Name, by Douglas A. Blackmon, into a feature. The book was recently adapted into a PBS documentary and hopes are high that the Bowerman/Blackman feature gets made soon.
In addition to that, Bowerman has been hard at work writing the short film, Impasse, to be directed by Michael Bekemeyer. The short goes into production in June.
