Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hey. I'm getting a script ready for submission to that Nichols movie script contest and also just to send out. Therefore, I need a synopsis that sells!
So here's what I have got. I wonder, what is unnecessarily wordy? What doesn't make sense? Do you understand what the movie is about?
Also for technicalities, do I use all caps for the names of characters in the synopsis as well as the script?
Also the beginning subordinate clause can be cut if anyone with experience feels its unnecessary. I've been reading and apparently it's good to mention whether something is a completely created work or based on reality, but I have no real world experience on that matter.
Outlined by life experience and filled in with creative originality, Play School is about SARAH, a young teen who finds the answers to her domestic problems by escaping through a cracked window, who is in a relationship with SIMON, a man nearly 10 years her elder. But when SARAH’S FATHER seems to be behind SIMON’S arrest, SARAH runs away and is befriended by JEN, a mysterious woman claming to be a friend of SIMON’S. Unbeknownst to SARAH, JEN is SIMON’s wife. Once the secret is let out of the room, SARAH’s life unravels, as she believes her last friend to be TOM, a teenage boy more interested in himself than her heart. In the end, JEN’s compassion and forgiveness enables SARAH to choose to return home, face the problems plaguing her life, and understand that help isn’t just a four-letter word.
