‘The Making of a Dream’ Episode 14: Life Gets in the Way of Creating

Do you ever get sidetracked from what you need to do?

In 1999, I optioned the rights to an unreleased comic book called Dream Factory and have been on a quest ever since to get it produced as a movie or TV series. In this blog I share with you the history, the near hits and the actual production notes as I finally move into production. #Thisismydream.

I have plans. Lots of plans. But I don’t have enough time.

Dream Factory is a huge project. I thought I would have started on the boards by now, but life gets in the way. This episode I talk about what is getting in my way.
