Re: "Cold Mountain" A Challenge !
In Response To: Re: "Cold Mountain" Wash. Post Style Review ()
I have researched some African Americans who served in the Civil
War, with the Buffalo Soldiers, the Spanish American War and
the 369th Infantry in WW1, in France, etc. Some of these soldiers
were my relatives. They have some interesting possibilities for
future feature length films, if some where weaved together. I am
advocating the development of new and unique story lines based on
actual events in which our forefathers and mothers have received
little or no recognition. "Cold Mountain" was part of a family
history and the rest was fiction, but it told their story.
We have an urgent need to tell our story in an
intelligent, dignified, entertaining and bankable vehicle.
Since I am not a writer, as you know, I would like to see
some of this idle energy, put to constructive use to begin an
effort through collaboration, and profit sharing. Meaning you
writers in this group and "out there".
I have some story ideas and history, as do many of you and
suggest that an entreprenurial business collaboration be formed
get our stories to the big screen. I will contribute, but not do
Just a suggestion !
