Quoted from Zack
Stoked you enjoyed "Scared Yet". I'm aware it's not very original, but I thought I could make up for that with a cool/dark twist ending.


Yeah, for me, the ending makes up for the trope filled set up. Especially since it’s the boy’s dream so all the movies he’s probably seen would be feeding into his guilt ridden subconscious and manifesting itself in this nightmare.


Quoted from Zack
I really struggled with writing the end of end of "A Christmas Exorcism". I had to of rewritten the last few pages at least fifty times. Even reading it now, it's just not clear. I need to dial it back a bit and simplify it. And I agree that this needs a little something extra.

Review exchange - The book of Joseph Posted by: BarryJohn
Date Posted: Today, 3:46am
HI - I'm looking to do review exchange on my script I recently posted THE BOOK OF JOSEPH (Found in scripts - DRAMA)

The story is a suspense drama that throws you the reader near the end... till it slaps you at the end!
Its a not so much a religion story.. as is - What if this did happen?

I'll exchange any genre .. except Romance

Hi ALL

Quoted Text

The spirit of the Lord woke me up in the midnight hour. I know it was the spirit of the Lord because up until that time I had secretly been an atheist, but once the voice was heard, there was certainly no mistaking it. I heard it say, “show me the Black cartoon animals.” I replied, “Lord, there are too many to name, but the most famous, I suspect is the donkey from Shrek.” I went back to sleep, but the voice woke me up again. “Show me the Black cartoon animals.” I shouted back to voice, “Google it. I already pointed you in the right direction with the Eddie Murphy’s donkey in Shrek.” The voice replied, “That’s not a Black cartoon animal. That’s a White cartoon animal created by White people, with a Black man’s voice…show me the B

I had 5 separate emails from this person. 4 for scripts and one crying about something:


Quoted Text
CAREY WESTBROOK IS "PHISHING" FOR SCRIPTS is the libel many screenwriters spread on the simply scripts message board right now.  Talented screenwriters, albeit ignorant uniformed screenwriters, have joined ignorant forces to spread lies and besmirch my flawless reputation. I did not know what "Phishing" was so I looked it up:


He actually needed to look up phishing?

Yeah, it looks pretty ridiculous and I can't make any sense of their website.  Burlesque dancers, weird clips of so called "trailers" shot on cheap cameras.    

Carey Westbrook is the director.  He was once on Food Channel's worst bakers posing as a cemetery worker.

It's strange and pointless. The guy who runs it is also an unethical douche who targets writers hopes and dreams... I forget his name

There's a thread from a few months back where this guy sent countless emails to several SS members (sometimes multiple emails) with the same cut and paste message (basically saying he loved *insert script title* and if the writer submitted it to his festival it would deffo win a prize)

Unless this is a different L.A neo noir film festival? I doubt it

Quoted from leitskev
Wow, I'm impressed, and I don't say that often. You actually really do have a complicated plot that comes together and has a lot of intrigue built into it. I can see where it's tricky to boil it down.

The funny thing about logs is we need them to sell the idea to someone that can make the film happen. But how much do we want to give away?

Also, you want to boil it down to it's simplest essence.

This story is about an AI boy trying to free his AI sister.

But the audience won't learn that until the end. So that won't answer the question what's it all about.

So let me try to break down the elements again and see if it helps:

Here's my second suggestion:

A corporation specializing in futuristic technologies and programming is hired to decipher a transmission from a previously inactive Mars rover. Their involvement was orchestrated by their own music-loving creation, to save his female counterpart.


very interesting approach, i will try to add 'death stakes' somehow.. (which is what i feel like missing from my logline too).
Appreciate it!

Quoted from leitskev
elements:

- a strange signal from one our Mars rovers that needs to be deciphered.
- a hacker boy...who is not human? not sure what that means, would need to know
- NASA assigns the deciphering of the signal to an evil corporation

It's hard too boil this down because I'm not sure where you're going. The intrigue is built around the mysterious signal. The protagonist would seem to be the boy. The villain is the evil corp. I assume the main action iinvolves the corp chasing the boy. And the twist involves the fact the boy was the one who sent the signal in the first place. Is that a twist that is revealed late?

What is in the signal? Why does the boy send it? What does he expect to happen? Do things

How about:

When NASA intercepts a Martian transmission from a young alien with a grievance and an affinity for human musicians, the world's greatest deciphering corporation must decrypt the message before ?

Not sure if the not-so-human boy is an alien or not, or what would happen if the message is not deciphered, though you could make those changes accordingly.

Current logline:
When NASA intercepts an otherworldly transmission from Mars, they assign its deciphering to Atkinson Corp, the best among the Government's private contractors. However, little do they know about the actual source's true plan and skills.

I'm trying to write a logline based on 3-way triangle of conflict (Protagonist + Struggle with Antagonist + Death Stakes) but I just don't like it...

Short synopsis follows.
A not-so-human boy with unrivaled hacking skills and passion for music (yeah exactly-it plays a major role!), hacks into one of the NASA's rovers on Mars and sends humanity an encrypted message. NASA assigns the deciphering process to one of its private contractors (a state of the art corp, evil never...

Hi Curtis ( or James )
Thanks for taking the time to read it and post some notes.  I welcome all notes, good and bad.  

We all read so many boring scripts that my mandate to myself was to simply 'not write boring'.  I tired to write in a way that was entertaining.  

However, maybe it didn't work.  I obviously didn't mean to come off sounding 'smug' or condescending in any way, so if thats how it reads then perhaps I have over done it.  I will think about this and I appreciate your time and comments.
Best
Karl
