Quoted from FrankM


If it helps, the criteria is “handsaw” which could be a hacksaw, coping saw, keyhole saw, etc.



Thanks, Frank. I'm pretty sure nobody realised that.

If the story is set on Tralfamadore, you might be able to sneak by someone saying “my hand saw that.”


Holy shit. I feel dumb. Completely misread that. Should be much easier now that I'm not handicapping myself. Lol

Thanks, Frank.


An example of my writing...

FOR SATAN - short, horror, 14 pgs (revised draft) - A group of thrill-seekers explore a creepy old house on Halloween night. Think you know this story? Think again.

Couple of questions...

How much of the script needs to take place inside of the broken down vehicle?

And what constitutes as a handsaw? Can it be a small chainsaw? An electric saw? A dismounted floor saw?

Any type of saw you can use with one hand.

It still kinda takes two hands to use it... even if one of them is missing.

FADE IN:
A space ship hovers over a car broken down on the side of the road.  On the side of the car it reads "DAVID COPPERFRAUD, MAGICIAN."

COPPERFRAUD, 103 and incredibly handsome for his age, notices the space ship.  WE SEE him thinking.  Maybe he's thinking.  He could have gas for all we know.  But in quick order he pulls out a handsaw from under his majestic cape and starts sawing his car in half.

5 WEEKS LATER --

The space ship long gone, Copperfraud finally finishes sawing the car in half.  His assistant, FLOOZIE, 18, built like a stripper, sticks her head out on one end of the car, and her legs out the other end.  Copperfraud takes a bow to a non-existent audience.

Despondent that the ship has disappeared, Copperfraud saws his own head off.  

Just as his head hits the ground, the space ship reappears.  A door opens and a grotesque alien, ZORK, with 385 1/2 tentacles, 3 heads and one eyeball, appears in the opening.  Zork sees Copperfraud's head rolling on the ground.

                                              ZORK
                  Sixyslkwexnnklajsldfuiuoialsdkjalsdfuaosdufois
                  lkajsldkjfjj008909808023842093838309ljkjwe0...
                 osoiu32930lnesdj!!!!!

Zork farts and returns to the ship. It immediately disappears.  Floozie lights a Lucky Strike cigarette.  The cigarette with a smooth taste.  The flame from the cig lights Zork's gaseous fart, starting a chain reaction that blows up the entire planet.  Ha ha!

                                                                                                       FADE OUT, BITCH


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.
