Screenplay Anatomy

The image of the whiteboard below, shows my rough sketch of a screenplay in progress.

It’s broken up into the major parts, typically 10, 15, and 25 pages at a time. Then there are the key plot points. As you can see, the second act has a couple of black holes that need to be worked out. Turning this into a finished screenplay will take a while. Stay tuned.

Dog & Kat, script

I’ve written several feature film scripts. Most of them were not so good. Finally, I created a story that is quite pleasing to my story telling sensibility. The title is Dog & Kat.

It’s about a young junkyard mechanic who lives a miserable existence. He falls for a woman with a past, someone who shows up in the middle of the night and takes his supper, namely Katrina. What a way to start a relationship! Dog is not easily deterred. He knows what he wants when he sees it, and is willing to do whatever it takes. His determination makes him worthy, but also vulnerable, as Katrina may or may not be manipulating him for her own purposes.

I’ll be posting regularly here on The Bent Page as the project moves forward. Funding is in place, pre-production is under way, and it will surely be a wild ride to a finished film. Check back often for updates.
