Viral load definitely remains controversial.

I personally think there's something to it. There were 5 bus drivers who died yesterday, and cases like that suggest there's something to the idea... That it's possible to be in an environment that is so rife with the disease that it overwhelms you, and causes the massive immune reaction that kills you.

It's one of those things that's hard to prove, because you could no doubt also get a tiny portion of a virus, and it could replicate rapidly and overwhelm you in the same way.

But I'm going with my gut instinct that being continually exposed to something in a confined space is riskier than being exposed to a lighter dose, on average.

Quoted from medstudent


No. It's a dose dependent thing from the initial exposure. If you are exposed to a lot initially, then the severity of your illness will likely be worse. If you are exposed to little and survive then you should be immune (for this round anyway). The docs who are dying are the ones being exposed to direct aerosolized virus from intubations, oral procedures, breathing treatments, etc.

This is the way vaccines work (mostly). You receive a small dose of virus or attenuated virus and live. One hopes that once you clear the infection, you will be protected from future infections. We don't know if this will mutate or how fast and whether prior infections will infer some protection.

Obviously, many other th

...I do have a list.
THANK YOU, If you could send it to me I'd be most thankful. My script; THE BOOK OF JOSEPH, Genre - Suspense drama.

PS; Just a thought, what if a new thread / site is created where we can ALL submit our individual list - a moderator could control / update it ?

Kind Regards,

The other point of view is only valid IMO if it is accompanied by an agreement that no one who decides to roan out there is going to go to the hospital for treatment when they get sick. Roll the dice -okay. But don't roll it and then infect a hospital worker


Yeah right. It’s too easy to dial 911 these days and ask to take you places. Like hospitals

My cousin passed away from the cerebral hemorrhage yesterday. It is forbidden to attend funeral. We also can't stand by her family. Death is very difficult in this condition. I hope scientists and doctors can find exact cure asap.

Take care of yourself.


Very sad news, Burcu.

I have had the pleasure of visiting Turkey twice in my life. Absolutely love the place and the Turkish people are so welcoming. Of course being an Aussie means we have that very special connection through Gallipoli. This time 5 years ago I was preparing to head to Turkey for the 100th anniversary commemorations. A truly wonderful experience.

My thoughts are with you and the people of Turkey, mate

I knocked my aged neighbor’s door a week ago to ask if he needs anything from a store as  I ventured out to stock up for a week. Now he knocks on my door every day as it turns out he goes out all the time for walks or to buy things. Things like chocolates and ice cream too. I told him that I’m done for a week or even two and will need stuff only when I empty my fridge. But not him.
He also forwarded me an article that supports the other point of view. And he’s in his 70s. I dunno.

My 80 yo naighbor went to the Farmers Market this morning and bought a lot of produce. After that he went to Publix to buy other stuff. He comes and goes at least 10+ times every day...

Hope everyone is okay in these strange times, truly.

As I mentioned before, this is a journal and I’m plugging it as such – I mean, we all have a consensus of what’s going on in our own neck of the woods, and if we all we’re to simply agree what’s happening, well… that wouldn’t be entertaining at all. I honestly love getting facts from around the globe (based on the feedback I’m seeing); some scary, some personal conjecture, but, from being around awhile, I don’t see any trolls trying to sway opinion by filling a thread with dissent or hate, which is a far cry from the main stream media channels that are out there.

Anyway, I’m ingesting as much info as I can, and trying to filter out the dis-info, but, man… so

We are in agreement. I don't see another choice we have now. Got to give our medical workers as much help as possible. You're crushing me on the dinners. I'm headed off to Jack In The Box.

P1-Maybe switch out the belch for something a bit more telling about his drunkeness. His speech is very sweet and composed, it doesn't read like he's way too drunk at all, and then he suddenly drops the C word and collapses. Tighten this up to avoid confusion.

P2- I know this comes across as a petty detail, but if momma is breathing through an oxygen tank, I feel like she wouldn't be walking about the venue too much. Plus, it would look bizarre on screen to see a woman walking around carrying an oxygen tank. If they need to have a heart-to-heart like on P3, rewrite it so he goes to her? After he's done ...

Quoted from eldave1

I think are best hope is that by April 30, we've leveled off and that this thing is subject to seasonal variation like the regular flu.  That would buy us some time - give our medical workers some relief.

Come up for a rational plan for September when this thing rears again.

Quoted from Scar Tissue Films


The older generations seem to be very blasé about it all. My father is the same. He's getting a bit better, but he's been very hard to convince that it's something worth changing his habits for. They seem to prioritise their own desires over any kind of objective reality.

I'm finding this whole episode disturbing. I'm disturbed by the disease, and I'm disturbed by the reaction to it. The lockdown  isn't a solution, it's just a delay while they search for a solution but the solutions they are looking for (vaccine, anti body tests etc) are all theoretical. None of them even exist, and may never exist.

They're testing all sorts of drugs on patients at the moment, so hopefully there

The story's essentially the same. Just adjusted some of the writing... I drew out the 2nd scene a little longer to draw more suspense, when Oscar grabs her foot when she's leaving.

I also polished the writing a bit, switched up some dialogue.

When Matilda and Stella are in the car (3rd scene), I extend their dialogue just a little bit. Not so much the dialogue, but I break some dialogue blocks apart and spread them out to capture the beats I wanted. And I added a line where Matilda tells Stella, "You're a fighter. Remember that".

So, yeah, even though it extends the length, it's generally the same plot, no striking changes.

I took down that post because I sent Don an updated version of the script along with the one pager, which is included in the OP at the top of the thread.

But, to save BillJ some time, this is a little one-pager I put together for my script. Pretty much just a one-page pitch to pull in whoever I'm pitching to.  https://drive.google.com/file/d/10AHXVF6M9JZdepUFZLWGwS9QnHJkBLy1/view?usp=sharing

I've also written 3 page treatments, but whenever I've been hired to write a script, usually the first step, at least in my experience, is a 7-10 page treatment.

Hey Pia... I'd say right around page 45 the changes begin, so I'd suggest switching over to the new one.

I didn't make too many changes in the first 45... there's a line I added early in the script that has a call back later in the script -- so that scene later in the script might not read quite as powerful...

But yeah, I think you're right about at the point where I started rewriting stuff.

EDIT: I also changed one other scene... I have a postal worker stuffing mail into mailboxes when we see Oscar crawling out of Stella's house behind him. I changed it to a grieving mother stapling "Missing" pamphlets (her missing daughter) to telephone poles and stuffing them in mailboxes. She sees Oscar, gets scared an...

Hey David,

I think it's safe to assume to you're pretty new at this, which is fine, everyone needs to start somewhere. And many of us have learned the craft through trial and error, paying our dues. So, if you're around, please take everything I'm about to say with a grain of salt. It'll only help you get better.

The presentation would make anybody stop reading the moment they open it. Even the title page seems a little off. I've never read a script that mentioned -- AUTHOR: WRITER'S NAME. It's always "Written By". Not saying it's wrong, but after seeing that, I had a feeling this might be a rough go as I was scrolling down to the next page.

Now, I'm not sure if you plan on filming this yourself -- it says &qu...
