A suggestion:

A twenty-something signs up to test high-tech weapons in a series of Duels to wipe his debt. His next opponent proves to be his equal... but if one of them doesn't win soon, both will lose!

Just my preference, but this one combines the mention of duelling to test weapons (which is an awesome freaking idea) along with the idea that one has to kill the other, or neither will remain alive.
I think the "weapons testing by way of duel" is the clincher, the unique twist on action concepts that immediately sets it apart (kind of like the idea of curving bullets in Wanted, for example). And the "both will lose" part makes sure they know that it has a sort of Battle Royale-style requirement for death, which would immediately get someone interested in the possible tension it might allow, since these two are apparently equals in skill.

That one is pretty good. I combined it with the other one since I like the way it started. This is basically like trying to write poetry. Way harder than writing the actual script...

"Struggling with an unpaid debt, a twenty something signs up to test high-tech weapons by way of Duel. His next opponent proves to be his equal but one doesn't win soon, both will lose!"

I find the soon in there to be kind of awkward. The rest is good.

Hope you're not a bot or alter ego, cause hearing random strangers have interest in these projects is seriously the best thing an artist can hope for.

So it is.

If anyone's interested, this is TECH:

An ensemble cast of tech support reps try to survive abusive customers and wild in-house antics, meanwhile a vengeful customer is en route to find and destroy the call center!

These are two actors at the top of my head who can play the two main characters:

Hoodie - Jessie Eisenberg

Image

Indian - Aziz Ansari

Image

An extra one: New Guy - Cal Robertson (He's too old now but he would've been perfect for the part)

Image
Image





I'm also thinking of changing a couple of the names cause "Indian" and "Obese" may come off as racist or rude.

Shouldn't Kenny be the one to open a topic like this if he chooses to?

I've been using the "loglines" thread every so often as well. :lol:

Think it'd be best to merge it with that and i'll edit the title.

It's all good.

I replaced the entire first page with font titles (that look really cool with the forum gray) for each movie i'm working on. As time goes on i'll post concept art, clips, status updates, and other information.

Juggling a couple of projects but the biggest thing I decided to do in DEUX (after watching a couple of clips from WANTED and listening to NIN's Everyday is Exactly the Same, which I love) is make a more prominent bad guy.

My original intention was to make the DEUX games on a national scale. But instead for the first film, i'll play it off as a chapter (under the ruse as the main operation) run by a solitary man who upholds the "dignity" of the original games, terrorizing the Angels into being as meticulous as possible to make sure their contestants don't get out of line. And the Angel who lets Machine Gun Bastard run about gets shot in the head (and properly cleaned off the face of the earth), to be made an example out of.

Once this new villain is killed or arrested, the DEUX chapter disintegrates and is made public. It's thought that this is the end of DEUX...until its found and revealed by Angel post credits that there are actually many more chapters and the DEUX coalition, on a national level, has not been shut down. In fact, they want everyone involved in that chapter dead and buried. Setting the stage for the sequel.

I decided to do this cause Shogun, as antagonistic as he seems, isn't the real badguy. He's just a pawn in the first movie and will eventually form a reluctant alliance with Revolver to fend off the Coalition's forces in the sequel.

The biggest issue is being able to integrate this new addition in the script (I think its very well paced already) but I think I can make it work.

The first draft of Project Exodus is done!

Hopefully we'll be done polishing the second draft this week, to get rid of all the extra material that's no longer needed (three-thirds in we decided to make a major change in the plot) and add new stuff. I'm still real excited about this story. I also have two directors in mind to bring it to life, gonna forward the script to their agents once its done.

On our Sci-Fi TV show idea, currently called Project Stasis, we came up with a solid cast now. Very diverse and well-rounded. Next step is to come up with all their backstories in full and basically tell it all backwards for the sake of revelation and suspense.

Working on the second draft of Project Exodus some more. Mostly simplifying the plot and getting straight to the point much faster before the main characters are introduced.

Once this version is done, it'll hopefully be the draft where we can be able to release it and reveal exactly what it is. It's been this big secret for so long and i've been dying to tell more people about it. I'm real excited at its potential. For the time being, i'm printing out both the first draft of that and the final for TECH so I can red ink the hell out of them, finding out ways to make them better.

It's the greatest thing you can ever do to improve your work. As opposed to reading it on a computer, reading it physically is like reading a book. You spot errors easier this way.
