First time writer, Cajardo Lindsey talks about how he finished his screenplay in a month after taking April's DreamingOutLoud Writers' Retreat
Actor, Writer, Filmmaker & Attorney Cajardo Lindsey walks you through his experience of working with April to finish his screenplay, BlackFace.
In this video, he walks you through the experience of writer working sessions with April during the TheDreamingOutLoud Writers' Retreat.
I was tired of waiting for an audition and waiting for an opportunity to come to me. I wanted to take some sort of control over this industry in which we work.
[The DreamingOutLoud Writers' Retreat] was totally invigorating.
**It changed the way I saw myself.**
I never really embraced the idea of "I'm a writer."
But after working with April, I came out of our sessions saying:
I can legitimately call myself a writer.
We were getting assignments to do in the moment. Go write and bring it back to me.
I had never had that experience and began to write extemporaneously; not waiting to be inspired, but to just write.
Because as April says, writers write. If you call yourself a writer, then you should be writing something everyday.
One lesson that really stands out in my mind.
April asked me:
Why are you writing a screenplay when your sensibilities are that of a screenwriter? Go write the screenplay.
She began unfold to me the way the business actually works. Once she helped me let go of the [idea] that this has to be a play, I spit that screenplay out in a month.
The woman knows what she's talking about. Her experience is broad: from film, tv, writing one woman shows, to producing on Broadway.
She's funny and she makes it lighthearted, but when it's time to get in that ass, trust me, she will.
If you call yourself a writer or want to tell your story, you have to work with April.
If it weren't for April, I'd still be sitting around trying to sell a one man play and now, I have people financing my film and I'm shooting it this summer.
