Quoted from RJ
Was thinking of entering with:

Naughty Claws

A stuck up business woman mistakenly buys a stolen phone from a dodgy pawn shop and is suddenly thrust into the life of an unconventional Angel, where mischief and mayhem take their toll in her pursuit to achieve a set of wings.

?? If I can figure the whole story out in time.


Yeah, at this stage loglines are a work in progress, this sounds more like a comedy-- but what I like about your approach -- having the woman purchase a cell at what appears to be a rogue pawn shop.  As I was mauling over ideas, something like that --never crossed my mind.  I almost wished I had thought of it.

A-CAROLING FOR CHRISTMAS

GHOSTS OF APPALOOSA

Quoted from crookedowl

A man who works at lost and found in an airport comes across a cellphone that belongs to his wife's lover. He digs deeper, only to find the man his wife is cheating with is a total weirdo, maybe even a stalker.


I think the idea could work but would be lots of work to make this (seemingly) simple story interesting.

Definitely original but like Ghostie mentioned, it sounds like a comedy - which might not be your intent.

Finished the first 11 pages, excited! Know where my story is going. But this may be one of the hardest features I've had to write. The story is non-linear and spans across three decades as we follow a man through four key moments of his life. Haven't got a log yet but I think I'm going to break some of the rules to convey the story.

Dena - Dead Cell - good title. I trust this has a dark element to it.

Mo -"Memories of a Forgotten Love". Not sure what this makes me think of, almost a love story during war times. Sounds drama rather than sci fi, or horror etc. Interested to see the log

crooked - It's Not You, It's Ryan

(or any other first name that will work. I haven't really settled on one).

A man who works at lost and found in an airport comes across a cellphone that belongs to his wife's lover. He digs deeper, only to find the man his wife is cheating with is a total weirdo, maybe even a stalker.

wasn't sold on the title. I liked the set up with a lost and found. Not sure how he knows the phones his wife's lover, but thats for you to work out. Could the person work at the airport, with a dark past - link it into his job as well. Maybe both he and his wife work at the airport and the lover is after the wife for some reason - e.g. importing weapons??

just thoughts.

Bflywings - Naughty Claws

A stuck up business woman mistakenly buys a stolen phone from a dodgy pawn shop and is suddenly thrust into the life of an unconventional Angel, where mischief and mayhem take their toll in her pursuit to achieve a set of wings.

not hows she mistakenly buys a phone from a pawn shop, but i like the idea that it comes from there. i agree, it sounds like comedy, even the title with the naughty element.

Yeah, it's a drama like you first guessed. No war luckily because then I'd have to do a load of research! But it's a kind of love story.

I'm seriously considering coming out of hiding for this. Even if I don't make the timelines, coming up with a believable and logical sequence of events for someone to purchase a phone that could cause trouble was quite easy (personal experience is the best teacher here). Blew it up into a thriller plot over the course of a few minutes.

Like I said, not sure how well I'd meet the time frames, but the idea could be worth finishing.

Satan on Line 2

Call from Hell

The Devil's Contacts

Dark Line

Sinister Contact

I'm sure there are a few others, but those are ones I just quickly pulled out of the air (i.e., my brain).

I'd say HELLPHONE.
But those darn French beat you to it with a teen comedy.

How about?  Hell Cell?

What about a variation of...

A/The        High/Higher/Highest         Call/Calling

I like 'The highest call'.


As for the challenge itself, I have a very basic idea, I'm just not sure I could write a feature in 7 weeks. Or 6 and a half as it is now.

I don't have a title, but the logline will be something like...

A training martial artist accidentally buys an assasins phone and must figure out how to save the final target.

It would probably be martial arts, action, comedy.

I am in the middle of writing something else right now, but I had a couple of ideas that were milling around in my head that if I did write might revolve around something like:

Blown Connection

An American missionary in Israel is conned into buying a suspect phone by a terrorist, and his first use of it causes a massive explosion that not only kills the U.S. vice-president, but several key terrorist leaders.  Now he is on the run from terrorists, the Massad, and shady covert U.S. operatives, and only one person can save him--(still in development!!)

Off the Grid

When a geocaching fanatic receives a sat phone intended for drug smuggler, he discovers coded messages in the phone's memory that could lead to one of the greatest treasures known to man--but only if he can escape assassins sent by a Mexican drug lord to retrieve the phone.

By the way, geocaching is a treasure hunting game where you use a GPS to hide and seek containers with other participants in the activity.  

Both are still rough works, and I can't decide which way to go.  The biggest challenge is just finding the time to write it all.
