MM’s “Love” Script

Well, I’m proud to announce that there’s a new screenplay on TriggerStreet, the result of a collaborative effort of 20 writers!

I thought it might be fun to try a screenplay experiment that would be a series of shorts along the lines of
Paris, Je T’aime. I’d give writers 6 pages each to write anything they’d want to write about love. They’d send the pages to me, and I’d put it all together into one screenplay. To my great surprise 20 writers volunteered! Actually, there were more than that, but I had to cut it off at 20 to keep the page count down. I don’t believe so many writers have ever come together for one screenplay.

After about a week and a half of intense labor, we got it done! You can find it
here and download it for free (membership to TriggerStreet is required, but it's free). It’s titled simply – Love. In it, you’ll find a great short by Miriam Paschal, who has done all those movie breakdowns, and also Pat who’s participated in all of the studies we’ve done here. There’s a superb short by fellow blogger Joshua James, as well as Ger, who placed second in the latest Final Draft contest. He wrote a hilarious short called “Dude, Wherefore Art Thou?” Mickey Lee’s in it, who I’ve written about before. David Muhlfelder, who you may recall gave us a review for the Senator’s Wife, wrote a hilarious short called “Colonoscopy: A Love Story.” Bob Thielke, who wrote the completely visual screenplay, put together a beautiful, almost wordless short called “Joedy Girl.” There’s also “Digging Greta Garbo,” by Ted Frothingham. And there’s a short by me, titled, “Love Inc.”

This isn’t for sale, just a writing exercise for fun. There was actually so much excitement about this project, that 20 different writers will be doing another script just like this in a couple of weeks, except the topic will be about “hate.” That should be really interesting.

Anyway, check it out. It’s a lot of fun.

Go for a Kieslowski trilogy... decalog... more?

Mickey Lee said...

Yup, after "Hate" comes "Indifference."

Hey MM - it was almost like the thing was planned! nice job. I did have a wee question about some formatting you did. Are those dashes in front of the SUPERs in Love Inc, a new spec standard? I'm not familiar with that.

Thanks MM for all your hard work!!

Thanks, guys.

Bob - I had a montage after my SUPER, which is usually listed with dashes. A Series of Shots would have A) B) C). I don't know if that's what you're asking, but I hope that helps.
