Got an interesting email yesterday from my friend Christopher Carter Sanderson. Some of you may know him as the brains and brawn behind Gorilla Repertory Theatre, which basically created the concept of “Gorilla Theatre” here in New York City about 15 years ago and wrote a terrific book about it. Anyway, like me, Chris decided to do the Master’s thing while well into his 30s, and now he’s out of Yale and pursuing dreams like everybody else. The latest project: “Williamsburg,” a series of 5-minute Webisodes about…what else?…a group of young theatre people living in Brooklyn. And I’ll be writing at least one Webisode, maybe more. Will be interesting, since I’ve never written for film before.
