    Tom Deedy was a writer from Connecticut who had been working with Scott Ferguson for a couple of years when we met him.  The surprising thing was, he had no contract with Scott when ShadowHawk contacted him regarding his television pilot RIVER STREET, and it could be a contract conflict that would finally end our association with ShadowHawk, and Mr. Deedy’s as well.  This is the first letter Anthony wrote him, and his response;
    Dear Mr. Deedy;

Catching the Greased Pig Out of Town: The Confusion of the Scripts, or Those Damned Irishmen....

Cathal asked me for a list of scripts we should include in a presentation to the investment team he put together in Switzerland for ShadowHawk to produce our films.  Sandra and I wrote separately, and we decided not to confer on our choices until after we sent our letters.  Here are both of them; you’ll notice all our choices weren’t the same, but that’s the beauty of having a collaborator.  These letters were both dated July 23rd.
    Dear Cathal;

Hell, Somewhere in Australia Part II

I was glad that I never discussed this matter with Tom and Sandra.  They had been my friends since college, and even though I was feeling put-upon at the time and as if I had been forced to assume more than my share of the obligations of our business, it was only a few days after this letter that Tom broached the subject to me.  He and Sandra had decided that any percentage ShadowHawk paid to him would go into the Lost Myths Ink account for our joint expenses.

Catching the Greased Pig Out of Town...Part One

CATCHING THE GREASED PIG OUT OF TOWN was originally intended to be a nonfiction book about our adventures in film financing and collaboration. It started in 2002 when we signed with ShadowHawk Entertainment in Ireland. When it reached 400 pages and I was only as far as 2009, I knew it had grown out of proportion for a book. So I am presenting it as a blog...the first one I ever installments. OK, it's not a REAL blog, because I could never really write one of those. Stream-of-consciousness isn't my thing. Don't like reading it, or writing it. So here is the first installment of my 'not blog'. There will be one a month, probably forever...
