I still get random calls from L.A. on my cell phone from some guy trying to talk to me in Arabic. I've told them several times that I have no idea what they are saying and that they have the wrong guy. Course, they could be concerned about the fate of their missing compatriot and be tracking me to find his whereabouts. That would explain alot. True story.

Here's mine...

A Written Descent

Logline: A writer is stuck on what to put on the page until he finds inspiration after purchasing a cell phone that has pictures of grisly murders and an unknown killer.

Quoted from JamesTheJudged
A Written Descent


I think this could be cool. I like the idea of a writer becoming more and more deranged as he uses grisly pictures of a killer's victims for profit.

Thing is, writers generally aren't that interesting on screen unless you are one. I'm not saying not to use a writer... you can pull it off, but you have to make sure you're making him interesting enough for non-writers.

And, I'm unsure how he could get inspiration from pictures. You can find that kinda stuff online... besides, how would you base a script/book on some pictures of gore?

The general idea is good, it's just the motivation isn't really there yet.

I was thinking of the main character having family troubles because of poor sales on his only published book. The character is distancing himself because he feels he isn't good enough for the family, not being able to financially help them.

Also, hopefully the script will be able to evaluate whats in the pictures that make them so different

I like this but I would make the protag something other than a writer.

Make the killer the guy who finds the phone...he just doesn't remember it was his. Has blocked it out of his mind.

What's wrong with writing a writer? I was under the impression that if you can make the audience or reader care about the character then their career isn't going to be this blockade saying "I don't care about them because they don't have the same job as me." I'm just curious if someone can tell me the problem here. It's just that the fact he is a writer plays into the rest of the story I have planned and it affects the characters around him. Tell me why!

Quoted from M.Alexander
  Kind of a take on "Lawnmower Man", "Virtuoisty" and "Damn You Bruce". .


Damn you, Bruce!  Classic...pure classic!  

Also, this is the exact premise of our lil' friend Chuckie, as some may know.  Child's Play to a T.

But that doesn't make it a bad thing.



To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

#1 It's overused to have a writer protaganist.  Think about how many stories there are about writers.  IMDB lists 2011 entries searching on the keyword writer.

#2 It's cliche to have a writer solving a mystery think Murder, She Wrote or Castle to name two based on this premise.

Of course, if you want to write about a writer, I'm not going to stop you -- but I do think it's a mistake.

Hope that helps.

After I think of a good logline, I'm going to be sending the first 11 pages in, maybe even work on another script if I think I'll have the time to write it into a feature.

Actually a solid twist, I'd go with this but now everyone now knows what will happen.

You have to love the classics!  Even the mediocre ones.

Oh, I know Rick Estley! I didn't know a word of English back then and all I could get was:
Enne goreh cant you now
Enne goreh cant you aaaaa
(seriously - that's what we kids were singing)

Turns out - I still don't get what he's saying there.
