Another pretty good one. Think I might know who wrote this. ;)

At first I didn't like how you were handling the time jumps, but it came together at the end.

Really strong work here. Top marks from me. :)

Woohoo Time Travel!   Very clean and easy to read.   I gotta say I enjoyed it. I'm always a sucka for a good scyfy script.   This was nice.  Visual, moved quickly, established characters and settings vividly... left me wanting more.  Nothing to rip.   It would only be nit-picking.  The other scripts in R5 are going to be hard pressed...

Sorry if this sounds like lame feedback.  Best of luck!  :)-Andrea

This is not cool writer! do you know how bad you have made my script look with this entry?
Seriously, why did you have to go and make it look so easy?

Positives - Well written, a great story that provokes the right emotions, characters we can empathize with and a satisfying conclusion.

Negatives - you made my script look like it was written by a drunk chimp with sight impairment.

Nice work

Predictable once I learned that Freddy died, but written expertly IMO. Emotions show in all three characters. Cute moment with Paul and Freddy pretending to race.

Not much to say here as it's in good shape already. Checked all the parameters and story was good. I imagine this one will be a contender.

Good Luck!  8)

A New Present

The story is okay as a drama. The script is clean and the handsaw has a remarkable moment.

However, the story is a drama. This simply is no Science Fiction script. While the payoff tries to say it, the true story experience is not the slightest in the genre. Possibly, someone who is not familiar with writing the SF genre. So... criteria not met here.

Time travel is a large part of this script. How is that not Sci-Fi?

Didn't write this, btw. Wish I did, though. :P

Hahaha. So, the reveal explains the Drama was actually a Science Fiction script???

Ridicolous. That's not how genre works. Genre is honest and clear.

Wow !! Well written piece. Perfectly captured emotions from all 3 characters. Handsaw played a key role. Amazing job here.

Since you emphasize it in the way you do… hmmm...


Quoted from Warren

the main character spends half the script building a time machine, so we have a sci-fi.


Exactly, this is what not happens on the screen, in the reality of the story we watch. The script hides that all from the reader. There's nothing of a SF feel, atmosphere, plot until the reveal that wants to be it in hindsight.

At the bottom of page 4 is the very first moment of a fiction element on screen that is touchable and real - actually on screen.

It is a drama.

I’ll say I liked this, well-written, nicely constructed and with a bit of heart to it.  Wasn’t crazy about the SUPER’s, but I understand you used them to get your end result.

I just need clarity about the ending. He is back in the “new present” but how old is his son now?  The dad has aged but has the boy?  Did Paul go back in time and stop the boy from dying?  If so (and here is where my head starts hurting), then he wouldn’t have needed to build the time machine afterwards to take him back, right?  Or alternatively, the boy would have aged just like his father. But I feel like I’m missing something here that I can’t put my finger on.

Still great job on the writing.

Best of luck and congrats on finishing the challenge!

Time travel movies always give me a headache if I think about it - and logically, they almost never make sense - so I try not to overthink them

If he went back in time and saved his son, the timeline where he built the machine no longer exists and so he didn't go back to save his son, but if he didn't go back to save his son, the original timeline where he built the machine comes back into existence... And now we have an endless time loop lol

I did think of one question though - if he went back in time and is still his future self in the past, where is the past father? Does the kid have two dad's now? Or did he replace past dad?... I see a dark sequel in the works where future dad has to "get rid" of past dad so his son doesn't discover the truth

I'm sorry, I'm going to be the dissenting voice on this one:

His hand circles the handle of a handsaw. It pulls free of
it’s casing and follows Freddy on his descent.
Twisting as he falls, Freddy instinctively raises his hands
to protect himself. The blade of the handsaw sits flush
across his throat, then--


I just can't envisage that happening with a handsaw. It surely would just clang to the ground or cut his hand. This is the type of problem I had when thinking up story - using it as weapon or lethal instrument in a believable way. A hand-saw works on push-pull momentum to cut and its bladed teeth are coarse and pointed. I had a similar but slightly lesser problem with it being used as a weapon in The Cold Invasion.

I didn't make it this far and I won't be voting so you can just disregard what I'm saying. I think more than anything the big problem is credibility with this object being utilised in a credible fashion. If it was a knife there are plenty of freakish lethal accidents that can occur with them. I think if this script were made the Producer would be wise to change this element.

Time travel stories are good entertainment (albeit a bit mess-with-your-head logic-wise) and you wrote the emotional component in well. You met all the parameters.

It may be just me who finds that handsaw supernaturally all powerful and in the end visually a little silly. That's not your fault. I personally blame Sean.  ;D

P.S. I wrote a script with the title: Someone I Used To Know - your moniker. I think you need something more emotive similar to that for your title. A New Present, even though I get the play on words, doesn't do the story justice imh.

Nicely done.

Predictable in a sense... that is, if you have access to the logline, and are told the genre in advance. However, on screen, this critique melts away.

It's a simple story with good emotional punch and a nice payoff.

Overall, well done.

Science fiction calls for the willing suspension of disbelief. But to believe Paul created a time machine in his garage calls for more suspension than I’m capable of. For some reason, however, I have it in the back of my mind that the “transition” to the past is all in Paul’s mind.

Whatever the case, the script is well written and the dialogue is good. The plot brought to mind Pet Cemetery: The father is so heart broken he resurrects his dead son. Paul is attempting pretty much the same thing. So could Paul’s son, Freddy, turn out to be a “disappointment” a la Pet Cemetery?

Um, what happened to Past Paul when Present Paul shows up? Did I miss something? Of course the time machine would work, otherwise there would be no SF, just drama.

I don't think all the SUPERS are necessary. I think only the first Past and Present would be adequate. Put a calendar on the wall but it would be obvious jumping back and forth.

Well written, no surprises, characters were pretty thin and didn't get me too vested in them.

Good job.

Drama/Sci-Fi and very nicely done, very strong writing on display here.

My only niggle is that a saw falling like that wouldn't do damage like that, that's why Monsieur Guillotine invented his machine.

Good job.

Quoted Text
A small section of the garage comprises of shelving filled with tools, another houses a desk and what appears to be a makeshift office.

This reads awkwardly.
Paul and Anna are each heard before being intro'd. It's a balancing act to keep the reader informed and the pace chugging along, and I've definitely seen this kind of arrangement in prior scripts. Just don't think I've ever seen it in a pro script.
The writer(s) of Frozen painted themselves into a similar corner when intro'ing the talking snowman Olaf. They sort of punted and literally used "Let's call this voice OLAF" in an action line.
Handsaw seemed shoe-horned in (any number of tools, or just the fall, could have killed the boy), but it counts.
So many questions about what happens next after FADE OUT. But James doesn't care, so it's a perfectly good spot to end the story.

Nicely written but predictability kind of spoiled it for me. It's just the story is a bit generic.
Other than that you packed a lifetime into 5 pages. I respect that.

I liked this for the most part, until time travel crept in. It isn't entirely out of the blue, you did have a rhythm of past and present established, but it feels like the time travel worked just to fit the criteria. Otherwise the ending seems like it should have been tragic.

It's not bad writing, and it is suitably horrific in its portrayal of loss and grief. I feel like I didn't quite get the ending, it felt rushed and clunky compared to the rest, but you were running up against the page count.

Not bad. Criteria met.

It's okay.  Personally I'd set this in the future.  Time travel to save a love one is bit overplayed IMAO.  Also, he appears to be shit at renovating his car, so to manage time travel is a huge leap for mankind to accept.

This script has been removed because it has been optioned to filmmaker Marieke Niestadt. I'm especially excited about this because I do love the script (it has changed slightly since the WT), but also because Marieke's work is fantastic.

Not sure on the budget, but based on the cast and crew and equipment used I cant imagine any expense was spared.

As far as run time goes, I think she said it clocks in at just under 10 minutes.

Thanks, mate:

Yeah - it was super cool that Warren and I - two old SS sods were in there and pretty much swept it between us - tells you how good that Director was for sure!

Since everywhere is handing out praise... here's ours.

Congrats to the both of you and Dave. Like Peanut Butter & Jelly.  Salt & Pepper... you two just seem to go together.  Makes for a great team. :)

A side note: Warren, um...  It has been sometime since I've read your script, so I could be wrong, but I remember the kid being a boy initially. If I'm wrong, apologies.-A

Thanks!

That's correct. It was one of three small rewrites I had to do; make the boy a girl, change the initial year of the event, and change the model of the car they were working on. I'm very happy that the film is true to the final script I submitted and really not that different from the original at all.
