Research is something with an interesting catch to it, especially when you consider how hisotry repeats itself. The reason I thought of writing movies hit me when writing for a national magazine about Columbine’s ten-year anniversary several years ago. In my research, uncovering startling information of past events threw up red flags. Information like this is extremely uncommon to me, at least until I began uncovering records.
Then I an amazing idea occurs to me to write a story of a divorced mom with two kids. (sound familiar?) Her teenage son receives a computer graphics game which blurs reality and fiction to help him save his little five-year-old sister. Her angry and spiteful father becomes the antagonist, in creature form, in an attempt to take her away from her family forever. The teen must decide if he’s a boy or a man in order to thwart the plans and save his sister. Incredibly enough, he finds the answer in his game creature.
Go ahead and give me your opinion! As the story unfolds, I will pose questions along the way to get feedback on the storyline. Perhaps you can help me write the movie!
