I'm thinking about joining a scriptwriting challenge on LiveJournal to play with a historical fantasy idea I've been kicking around for a few years.
Anybody else have movie or television ideas they'd love to see on screen?
I would like to create a reality tv show in which young bored-to-death and trouble-causing offenders, who don't seem to appreciate all the good things they have in their own country, can instead of being locked up, be send off to some poorer country for a period of 4 to 6 months and made to survive with the bare minimum. And hope what life lessons they learn as a result and become better people...
Yes, at the moment i am passionate about stories of injustice, caused by failings to save people. I would love to give the victims families a voice.
Hero,Antihero,Vilian,Heroine, Love triangle, Sci-fi, Horror,Thriller=Complete Movie.
I'm a scriptwriter by nature believe it or not, hubs are a bit of a sideline at the mo. I mostly write about Scottish culture in the past and the present, but occasionally I go off on my mad tangents into the fantasy realms. There are some set formats for Scriptwriting - especially hollywood style films. If you haven't done any scriptwriting before it might be worth doing a bit of reading into the models beforehand. I only mention this because my major was in scriptwriting, and believe it or not all films/series/sitcoms/anything else (even 'unplanned' reality tv shows) all follow set formats within their scripts and if you are going to start writing it's worth knowing them to avoid cliche's. That beingsaid - you should definitely enter every writing competition that you can and good luck!
Maybe a movie or TV show about what really happens behind the scenes in places like ER, Funeral Homes, Doctor Office, etc
A television sitcom involving musicians and the wacky things they get into during gigs, after gigs, etc.
I have a story here http://hubpages.com/hub/Awake-from-a-bad-dream
which i think would was very interesing to build a fantasy/thriller/horror movie (:
How about a movie about an online group of friends who love to play around in the forums and one day they unwittingly piss a new guy off who just so happens to be a pyscho and he starts tracking them, killing them one by one? Add lots of blood, sex and mystery and its a sure hit. Any royalty for the story?
If I could write a script for a TV show it would be about a retail shop..perhaps in LA..where you have a set of regular actors..the store manager, sales person, etc..but what takes place is all types of customers coming into the store and the fun, drama and comedy of what comes with trying to make a sale. Some of the customers would be unknown actors along with a regular story line of the main characters running this upscale retail shop. You would have other regular actos of the delivery guy, etc, that make occasionl short apperances too. But..there could be surprise vists from big time Hollywood stars like Johhny Depp, Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Leonardo Di Caprio, Jennifer Aniston, the list could be huge of the bigger stars..oh how funny it would be to see how a retail sales clerk would sale a pair of socks or underwear to one of these stars...I am laughing MAO already just thinking about it. I would turn in to this show if for nothing else to see who is going to walk into that store next !!! So tired of killing, blood, violance, drama...we need to laugh so much more now in these hard times! My idea...don't steal it!
I like it, but take the celebrity/actor element out of it.
I think people really need to see life for people who work retail and I've always wanted to see a show that follows the staff in a drugstore.
Do you know how many times I've felt threatened, or how many times I've felt the need to step in and stick up for a coworker because some customers just don't want to show an ID for cigarettes?
Put that on TV, blur the customers face but show people that good customer service works from both ends.
Well I guess I really can't say,because it's top secret...
A realitly tv show of people on an island and then add a zombie so they have to try and stay alive!
The world is ending. An ambiguous force in the universe is absorbing everything it touches. People with various beliefs are given over to a kind of madness. They perceive others as monstrous entities from the myths of their own religious backgrounds, and are gripped by the fear that these images are about to create hell on earth. In reality, they're just ordinary people. It causes psychotic episodes and they cause mass destruction around the world through an attempt to avoid what they think has come to collect their souls. But some of the characters are capable of seeing things exactly as they are - and it falls upon their shoulders to make sense of what is happening to their world.
I've been enjoying certain independant films a lot lately.
Zach Braff's Garden State, The Darjeleen Unlimted, etc. But I love vampires too.
I'm thinking something like Clerks meets Underworld.
I think many writers who love writing and love watching films/TV shows have a secret wish to put their ideas on screen. I myself have a few ideas I secretly wish (not so secret anymore) could be made into a film. But they are still in the experimental stage and not nearly ready to be put down on paper in book form yet alone script form.
It definitely wouldn't be another Reality TV show that's for sure...Perhaps better shows for kids/teens so they in turn will grow up not wanting to write scripts for shows like the ones we force outselves to watch..Seriously!!!!

Does reality TV insult the intelligence of viewers?With the Kardasians, the Bachelor, Jersey Shore and on and on with unknowns without talent becoming famous, has reality TV reached a point of insulting the intelligence of the viewer? Of course, the question itself is an oxymoron.

I think I have turned on my TV probably 10 times in the last 4 years. I find that television really dumbs us down. (I believe that is how the expression goes.) Television used to be entertaining in a different way a few years ago. I miss the Cosby Show, Family Ties, Happy Days,...
