WHAT ARE THE ODDS?

I think we can all agree that luck, in whatever volume, plays a part in every success.

You can imagine my suprise when I received an excited phonecall from Chris (now residing in Calgary) who proceeded to tell me how he successfully pitched ‘DYNAMO’ to uber-producer Robert Lawrence (‘MOZART AND THE WHALE’, ‘DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE’, ‘ROCKSTAR’, ‘CLUELESS’…) Lawrence requested a copy of the script and it went out yesterday with the express purpose of landing on Spielberg’s desk. Oh yeah, did I mention they’re friends and associates?

Well over a year ago, when I first discovered the story of ‘DYNAMO’, I turned to my FX buddy and occasional collaborator, Jason Hollefreund and said,

“This is a beautiful story. I want to write it.”

He looked at me as he lit a cigarette.

“You should. It’s got Stephen Spielberg written all over it.”

With some luck, maybe it will.
