Where to Begin - An Idea

Welcome to the beginning of my journey to make a movie. I guess it's not technically the beginning as I have already hatched out a rough draft of the screenplay. In these first posts, I'll catch you up on writing process thus far.

The idea for this feature was actually born out of a few characters I had previously written short films around. One was born from a rant by a nameless character from my first directorial effort, Feeling Tall. Another couple of characters (or at least their circumstances) were lifted from my most recent short film, Pretty Happy. I knew that these characters from different movies would probably co-exist well, and perhaps even explain one another.

Through a series of intense scribblings on a yellow writing pad, I developed my given circumstances for the story. Then I changed my mind completely and wrote something else completely different.
