Further to Tom's post on our ICA Lab, here are a few more photographs from the session, taken by Deva Palmier, who runs the Lab. I've started to think properly about the new draft today, going through the script and the notes that Tom, Christine and I made in response to the Lab, and the feedback has certainly proved invaluable to the development of the project. I'm pretty happy with how the plans for the new draft are going so far. Although, in a sense, the changes we're making are 'surface' changes, I think they're going to have a big impact on the script. There's certainly a lot of work ahead of me in the next couple of weeks as I dig down deep into the story and the characters and filter all the feedback into concrete script changes. Right now I'm still in the thinking and planning phase, but I'm hoping to start the actual writing soon - if all goes to plan, the new draft will be ready to show the others by the middle of the month. I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Deva and all the actors involved with our Lab for their contribution to the development of our project.
