YES! Do it. You give us clear guidelines - ages of the characters, length, settings, nature of the content - and I guarentee you'll have maybe nearly a dozen new, tailor-made scripts for you by the end of the day.
If you don't like them, you can find something else. But maybe there'll be a gem.
Romance as long as it's very original not run of the mill (eg Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Secretary, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!).
Westerns, war, action and adventure, animation, but I doubt they'll work in the setting we have.
Horror and sci-fi - not usually those I favour tend to be on the existential/psychological side.
This might help, some of favourite films: Dead Man's Shoes, Apocalypse Now, Lost Highway, Blue Velvet, The Godfather I + II, Memento, City of God, Usual Suspects, Kes, Land and Freedom, Red Road, Alien, The Thing, Company of Wolves, L'Appartement, Seven Samurai, The Entity, Goodfellas, The Departed, Amelie, A Very Long Engagement, L'Emploi du temps, Last Broadcast, The Motorcycle Diaries, Y tu mamá también, Fistful of Dollars, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Taxi Driver, Cool Hand Luke, Solyaris, Downfall, Das Experiment, Das Boot, Salo, 1984, Spirited Away, Run Lola Run, A Scanner Darkly, Idioterne...
OK, genre: drama, comedy, suspense, thriller, mystery would be best I think...
Characters: male, 50s (the protagonist), A Female nurse (antagonist - in some form, whether intentionally, malevolently, etc) can be any age, might work best with a character of a similar age? Minor characters - nurses in their 20s.
Plot: Beyond the cliche that he has a conflict, an obstacle to overcome and a resolution that's not too twee I can't really think of much. It can be kooky...
Locations: Mainly in the ward, external grounds, corridors, a rest room for eating.
Props: various medical paraphenalia - a wheelchar, stethescope, beds, cabinet, bedside table.
Costumes: nurses uniforms, 1 patient gown, pyjamas, the actor knows he has to wear suit.
Anything else I must be able to purchase from a normal high street shop as it's too late to custom order props.
Something simple, yet touching is what usually grabs me, you can go dark, depressing and grotesque as long as there's an inclination of hope.
I decided to take a break from the 7wc today so I wrote a 5 pager for this. Not sure it's any good though.
Title: Seriously Wounded
Logline:...don't really have one and I suck at those, but maybe something like "A man on his way to surgery after having been shot in the head and leg, freaks out when he finds out who shot him." Hmmm, I don't know...
