Radio Auto-Ethnography: The Art of the Self-Interview on The Art of Dreaming

January 22, 2013

autoe

There are two curious post-modernist texts a writer can engage in reflexively: reviewing one’s own book, and the self-interview.

Using the auto/ethnographic lens, I will interview myself on my show, The Art of Dreaming on Revolution Radio, January 23, 5PM Pacific, 8PM Eastern.

I will talk about things he was not able to get to during his Project Camelot interview: working in Hollywood as a writer.  I shall discuss the ups and downs of getting his books and scripts optioned but not developed and financed, shooting a pilot for CBS and Sony that didn’t pass muster with the Madison Avenue guys’ focus groups so was never aired, dealing with players, liars, con artists and nymphomaniacs that plague Tinsel Town, and weird experiences and encounters with people like Ray Liotta, Dean Cain, Vincent Gallo, Bruce Willis and Winona Ryder.  I will relate what it took to get a low-budget indie film made, winning awards at Slamdance and various festivals, taking a short documentary to Cannes, and surviving as a writer in LaLaLand.
