Screenplay Casting & Family Business
My nephew said something to me that resonated; he said never do business with family and friends, but I happen to disagree. His rational was if they get upset they will halt your project if they can out of emotions. I found that I was doing exactly that, for personal reasons, I decided to stop feeding the Janet’s crew with music, song and ideas, instead I have to see it through and see where the chips fall at the end. I have to separate family relations and business.
Not to say I am not working on my own project, but I know my material is very controversial and provocative, and that is the intentions and I am not sure if Janet can get away with singing some on my lyrics, but almost always the music is very good or better that that, I can turn a beat and if you listen to music today the vocals are cool but the lyrics are senseless and the music sucks, so we will see, where this goes.
I put out screenplays to be looked over and have not received any responses, this is how I want it done in any case, and without given the screen away I will say this.
