The way this is phrased, I'm not sure which response is appropriate. So I'll offer both.

Congratulation!!!

or

Congratulations?

Thanks both. It's been a tough year getting things off the ground so this is a blessing. This was also the script I mentioned before that I wrote in two weeks.

Congrats on publicity CJ!

I could also write a script in 2 weeks. But it would be completely terrible and probably also include multiple snack-food jingles I'd unconsciously internalized in dialogue.

Some more coverage in DEADLINE; https://deadline.com/2020/11/gravitas-ventures-diving-deep-mike-degruy-d...

Surreal to go through this and see my name there. All a very new experience. It all automatically logs on you IMDb page too.

It's a lot easier to turn out a good script in two weeks when you're motivated by opportunity and have an impending deadline. It's crazy how fast things can move. The first "meeting" about Double Threat was on Sept 17th and production started on Monday. That's a script written, budgeted, scheduled, financed, cast, crewed and everything else all following SAG Covid regulations in just two months.

I suppose that must be true. Always managed to get my philosophy theses done in college and I wasn't even drinking coffee back then. lol

Big congrats on your movins n' shakins!

Congratulations CJ!  Inspiring news, particularly in this slough of despondency everyone's facing during covid era, look forward to watching your film.  Writing it in two weeks is a feat in itself without the added pressure of  "is it, isn't it" dialogue/action for social distance etiquette.

Thanks so much, Debbie. The script is so incredibly lean in terms of logistics to help with Covid regs. I'm blown away by the production value we're getting and a lot of that is down to the whole team going above and beyond.

We wrapped last week. Currently getting some second unit. All went very safely and smoothly. Three months from initial concept meeting to completing principal photography.

I'm green with envy, in a positive admiring way. So happy for you and looking forward to watching the movie!

I'm green with envy too. Had to watch the whole thing unfold via social media from 5,000 miles away and it looked like a ton of fun. Lots of stunts, lots of comedy, the crew got to play many of the extras. Apparently there were tears when we wrapped as people didn't want it to end.

That's so amazing. Even long distance, I would be awe-struck.

LOL! I need to write a new Adventures in Film Producing blog post soon.

For anyone interested, here are some shots from Double Threat on the website I've recently built for my new prodco Rebelle Rouser.

Plus, here's some production pics.

We also gave out crew t-shirts I designed which you can see here.
