Quoted Text
Here's a question. Did writers submit scripts that echoed their own experiences? I know I did.

The Midday Sun: Single male goes out with his cellphone. I could have easily done that. I even described my immediate neighborhood.

There were stories revolving around married couples, visiting old folks homes, keeping in touch with family from a distance. Were these written by those who were in or experienced those situations?


Hope you didn't run into some hooded cult members trying to kill you... that would suck!

I didn't rob a bodega and I didn't witness any stick-ups, but I do live above a bodega in a not-so-great neighborhood in the South Bronx. Felt a little uneasy going in there late at night with a bunch of dudes wearing masks and gloves. Though I'm not sure if it was a prerequisite that the stories had to pulled from real life experiences...

I put my own personal experiences in 'We Are Still Here' to give the dialogue some authenticity and said a few things I'd love to say to my mother if she were still alive. I've detailed it more on the thread for the script.

Absolutely not. My idea came out of some memes that were joking about being stuck inside with your spouse combined with my own worries about kids being stuck in some crappy apartment somewhere with parents that are not stable or addicts and such.

I think we all draw on our own experiences as a starting point. We need to relate emotionally to the piece in order to convey whatever message we're trying to get across.

I tend to start with themes, things that I want to say, and then I use the plot and the characters and dialogue to serve that theme.

Purely fictional, mine.  Obviously.

I'd love to think the current pandemic might change some people for the good.

Mine is about me and my neighbor. I exagerated though. The neighbor is just the way he is in real life. I even kept the name.

Ask my neighbor what he thinks of my potato radio. (Okay, don't. There isn't one.)

The ice cream truck joke in my other short came from my wife joking about the UPS truck being so popular because it brings toilet paper. Put me in mind of the ice cream truck we used to stalk as kids. We'd chase that sucker down from blocks away.

Isn't Paul saying he's hosting it?


So, I kinda walked myself into that one, didn't I?

That said, if they need someone to lead the charge... I'm game. I have a couple of ideas. Though, no real good ones, yet.
