So this is a first, but Normal Activity has just been optioned again.

Twice in five days and both to filmmakers in the UK (one to film students and one to a working producer/director/cinematographer). Be great to have my first UK produced film.

Hereís hoping at least one of them gets made.

Warren,

Both optioners (sp?) are aware that this is non-exclusive?

Good title

ďHe peers around the corner, sees the knife, and races up the
STAIRSĒ

- So the film Scream wasnít completely right. It isnít just big tit?ted blondes that illogically scamper UP the stairs when being chased. Men do it too!

This took a peculiar though intriguing twist at the end with the closet being empty. I thought we were entering some Lynchian type territory. Instead, Adam seems to re-materialize in the room and experiences some out of body, post-suicide episode/vision. Kinda unclear as itís written, which may well be the intention, or itís likely Iím missing something.

Is this influenced by A Ghost Story by any chance? Is Adam haunting the house he once lived in but doesnít realise it yet?

Thanks for the read Col,

You are spot on with the statement I quoted.

It came from an idea I had about doing Paranormal Activity in reverse, hence the name Normal Activity.

Itís from the ghostís perspective, to him nothing is paranormal, and itís just a 'normal' home invasion.

Because this is already under two options I will more than likely not be making any more changes.

Cheers.
