Quoted from greg
Kind of like a prequel to the times.  


Yeah, seriously. I didn't pay attention to the time of publication, so I thought this woulda been a new script poking fun at the Facebook-movie, because so many things COINCIDENTALLY concur. I mean like the scenes where all the kids sign up to the network for instance.
You really anticipated something there, Kudos on that!

And I would really love to read a sequel to this, maybe set in 2011, but featuring the same characters.

Yeah, some people didn't "get it" when it was first written, but as social networking has expanded it seems to have more relevance.

You're pretty much spot on with what I had in mind so far.  It would take place at the height of a new website similar to Facebook.  Closing in college graduation as well as nearly nabbing a career, Danny finds himself getting relentlessly trolled by a computer hacker who soon takes over his account and subsequently defaces it with obscene pictures and whatnot.  With fear of his potential new employers finding his profile, Danny seeks out the help from Don (who still lives in his mom's basement and works at Taco Hell) in order to get his profile back and stop the hacker before he does something even worse to the entire *insert Facebook-like website* network.  

Yeah, that's what I got so far.  Still playing around with a lot of stuff but the possibilities intrigue me.

Thanks again for checking this out and if you've got something you'd like read just PM me.

Greg

Hi Greg
I just read your breath consuming script ADDICTION, itís well structured from its diction, tone, characterization, and pretty amazing the person you hate the most happens to be the one who give you a great solution. Iím talking about DANNY and BRIAN.

And a character can influence the people around him, through the words he verbalizes on, and that a good attitude will make everything dance according to what you have imagined- DON's attitude killed everything he wanted...

Greg, its beyond creativity, keep it that way, i would love to see you mount to elevated heights..................

What's up, Greg?

Lol.  You're story, while creative and interesting and cute, wasn't very prophetic.  These sites are still brainwashing millions of people out there, and I think it'll take a lot more than a nerd telling boring stories to bring them down.

I'm not really into the social network thing, except for Simply Scripts, that is!  (And I also belong to an Amish dating site (I haven't gotten too many views on my profile though, stupid technology) but that's besides the point), so I enjoyed all the little stabs taken at how entranced people get with those sites.

Reviewing some of the other posts here, I saw that you've gotten this one produced since you first posted it.  Is there a version of it crawling around anywhere?  (I tried checking YouTube, but all that came up were films about drug addiction and a few about facebook addiction, but none that resembled this story.)  I'd like to check it out.

There was some great pacing in the story.  40 pages and it zoomed by, which is what I think a comedy should do.  I think the quick, short scenes helped with that.

Danny and Ben were a little confusing for me in the beginning.  I had to keep going back and seeing which one the football player was.  I think there were just a couple instances in their dialogue that made it hard to differentiate between the two.  A couple of times, they both sounded like the same character.

But this was a really enjoyable read all in all.  I'd really like to see the film version of this if it's online anywhere.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the review and your words!  I'm glad you enjoyed it.

The film is now hidden online somewhere so I'll look for that and post a link.  Originally they had a whole website dedicated to it with the Buddysearch theme and whatnot -- it was cool.  

Thanks again!

Greg

Found the movie link: http://media.clarkson.edu/

Scroll about a third of the way down to "Internet Social Media Addiction."  It's a 2007 production.  An interesting interpretation of the script.

There's also this one I randomly found online one day of the opening scene:



I say randomly because I think these guys may have asked for my permission but forgot to show me whatever they did.

Greg,

Congrats on getting this produced.  

I wonder if they were watching this online and said, "We're up to 45 views! Yes!"  

It was a fun read.
