Screenplay needed

    If anyone has ever seen John Fiorella's "Grayson" trailer, you will have an idea of what I'm looking for (www.theforce.net/fanfilms/nonsw/grayson)...

    I'm taking a digital film making class and have to put together a short movie. I've debated between a documentary or a one-act play, but then the professor showed us this "trailer" last night. I like the idea of putting a whole movie together with just hitting the highlights in a 5-7 minute long trailer.

    So, I'm soliciting ideas from my SportsJournalists.com brethren. My wife and I brainstormed a few idea last night, but it would require me writing a script in addition to securing the actors and filming the scenes and editing the film, etc. I know there are some bright writers on this board (the running novels a testament to that fact) and figured if there is someone out there who has written a screenplay and would like to see it (somewhat) filmed, this would be a good opportunity.

    Keep in mind, I don't have the editing power of George Lucas to put together a lot of effects. Nor do I have the budget to film on numerous locations and use multiple sets with lots of costumes. Basically, a simple story (I was thinking some sort of love story or comedy) would be the best bet.

    I have to start filming in two weeks. Not a lot of time to get things together. I would have to read the script, pick the highlights out, cast the parts and go from there in that time period.

    Of course, I'll post the finished product (with titles removed to protect the innocent) and the screenwriter will get credit if this thing goes to festival.

    So, anyone interested? PM me for more.

    Make a movie about the random thoughts thread. That's choppy, fun and could be interesting to watch as a study of human personalities.

    In a world where people claim to be busy but have seemingly endless time to spend on an Internet message board.
    At a time when reason and character seem to be disappearing faster than spare ribs at Charlie Weis' lunch table.
    Only one place could house the jadedness, vitriol and ignorance of an industry, a profession, a lifestyle ...

    I know of two people on this board who aren't aspiring screenwriters-- they are screenwriters.

    But I guess they'd be too busy actually doing it for money.... ;D Good luck, bd, sounds like fun.

    I don't have any screenplay ideas, but if you ever want to talk shop (I'm in the middle of a documentary for school), PM me.

    How about a movie about two guys that work at a convenience store in Red Bank, NJ?
