Default Re: Doubler's ScriptFever Writing Exercise (Revisited -- Again)

I'm still playing with my outline, but I'm ready as I'll ever be.

And since you've done this twice now, when does it become "cmmora's ScriptFever Writing Exercise"?

Great. I am a big outline believer (no fights please...). Good luck.

No, it will always be Doubler's. He's the inspiration...

Okay, with a few weeks before we start, here are the victims who have agreed to this special Circle of Hell (or heaven...).

I am including my logline, but this is not a requirement. It's still a little clunky, but it just my working version. I usually don't come up with the final one until I finish the script. I actually am debating with myself about two different scripts to pursue. One I have a full outline for... and the other I just have a logline (below). If I do the one below, I have to get cracking to finish the outline. I get completely lost without at least a roadmap...

cmmora -- "DARK SECRETS (Working title -- damn it, title already on IMDb). While hiding and uncovering dark secrets at a slumber party, 5 teenage girls battle an unseen killer whose hell bent on silencing them -- FOREVER.

Zenplato

-jam- -- "Untitled". The forgotten son of a dead small-time hood must protect the son of his father's last wife from his father's enemies and from the family cousins.

Mr. Earth -- "Vernon's Revenge". With the help of a time machine and his best friend, a geeky adolescent boy travels back to before he was conceived to torment his absentee father.

KarenShoe -- "Snowbirds". A snowbirding couple meet a string of crazy couples and rediscover the true meaning of home.

Architeuthis Dux -- "PIPPI AND THE COLOSSAL ABOMINATION". A plucky reporter teams up with a vengeance-crazed Australian to battle a huge, multi-dimensional monster and the killer cult that invokes the beast for its own unholy purposes.

Hey there.

Here's what I think I'm going to write:

The forgotten son of a dead small-time hood must protect the son of his father's last wife from his father's enemies and from the family cousins.

Kinda of a sorry logline but the best I can do for now.

Only a few more days to go!

And I just decided to change premises! My friends in another group convinced me to try this one:

Snowbirds - A snowbirding couple meet a string of crazy couples and rediscover the true meaning of home.


This is just a working title and logline so any improvements are appreciated. I've got my outline worked out, although it's pretty sketchy.

This is going to be fun! See you Thursday.

So I think I'm going with this one:

PIPPI AND THE COLOSSAL ABOMINATION

A plucky reporter teams up with a vengeance-crazed Australian to battle a huge, multi-dimensional monster and the killer cult that invokes the beast for its own unholy purposes.

Awesome guys. We start at 12:01 PST on Thursdays.

I have been so busy with the day job, and working on my other feature film, which we just released our first trailer for, that I have not gotten to do the outline for the script I wanted. So I am going to change the script I am going to write to the one I already have an outline for. I will update my logline when I have actually written it. Funny, I have a logline for the vague script idea I have (the one above) but I don't have a logline or title for the one I have fully outlined.

The title and logline are still a work in progress (and I'll take suggestions), but the name I'm saving this project under is:

(Comedy)

Vernon's Revenge

With the help of a time machine and his best friend, a geeky adolescent boy travels back to before he was conceived to torment his absentee father.

GO!

And for the time being, I'm calling this one:

"It's About to Get Wicked"

More to come...
