Brain Freeze

Two colleagues meet over a cocktail to discuss their peculiar work.

It really came down to the wire on this one. I only just finished the second draft (I usually do only two drafts) minutes before posting.

I have decided that, since I am a two weeks away from moving country, I will be taking a hiatus. I’m not sure how long it will be but next week’s script will be the last for at least a few weeks while I get myself and my family settled in Australia.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this week’s cocktail.

The Last Librarian

At the dawn of the war which destroyed humanity a massive library was sent into space in an effort to preserve the world’s books.

This script was born from my love of books, libraries and the idea that all real truths can be found in fiction. It’s also a kind of gift for a good friend of mine who is a librarian.

Hope you enjoy it.

Touch

A young woman has retreated from society because she freezes everything and everyone she touches.

The fifth and final script in the five senses challenge. This challenge has been fun, I’ve used it to explore a few genres that I don’t usually write in and have mostly liked the results.

I’d like to see this one animated, I tried to make it very visual and can see how warm and cool colours might be used to great effect.

Hope you like it.

A strange detective surveys the scene of a murder.

This week I’ve made a big change. Most weeks the first draft comes in at about two and a half pages and I end up tightening it down to two and it flows much better and is more concise. But then, on occasion, the first draft comes in at three or four pages, I tighten them down but find that the perfect version of the idea is in fact about two and a half pages long and by tightening it further to two pages it loses something and becomes a worse script.

I have decided that I would rather post a better script than a shorter script so, on these occasions, I will be posting scripts that are a little longer than two pages. Today’s is two and a half, I hope you don’t mind.

Let me know what you think.
