Writing a screenplay is a bucketlist kind of thing for me, but I’m going to wait until I’ve finished it as a short story or a novella before I buy Final Draft and start working on it seriously. I have a novel concept, too, I’m interested in writing, but really it’s buying a camera and being a professional photographer that I am really working towards. Everything else is just because I idly am creative without thinking about it.
Regardless, below is a meandering video of me talking about a screenplay I’m interested in writing. The screenplay’s high concept would be something like Contact meets Close Encounters of the Third Kind meets Stranger in a Strange Land meets The Last Star Fighter. Something like that. I really need to shut up and start writing, but daydreaming about doing it is so much fun.
