A Page-ish.

Updated: Aug 7, 2023

To keep me motivated to write - which to be completely honest, my motivation is at an all time low - I've decided to post a page-ish of some of the things I'm working on at the moment.


And hopefully it will kick my rear into gear.


Enjoy.


This is a teaser from a T.V. pilot I'm working on entitled "Nina and Mary Jane"



TEASER


1 EXT. - ANY TOWN, ANYWHERE U.S.A - NIGHT 1


High above Anytown -


FIREWORKS POP and SIZZLE in the star-filled sky


Below -


Intoxicated citizens dance and celebrate.

Another win, in a season of many.


Boring.


We fly on towards a bright orange light - to see a sign towering over the treetops -


“FREDDIE’S SMOKE SHOP”


We linger for a moment- until -


Movement below in the trees.


Something large crashes through the branches pursuing something much smaller.


Intriguing.


We descend through the thick branches.


NEW ANGLE - LILLIE (forever 17, messy bun - tiger leggings - bright yellow crocs - t-shirt that reads PULL MY FINGER - purple Jan Sport) rushes past as -


Thick, amorphous, fleshy, red tendrils wildly reach out to her - ripping and splintering with every swipe.


Lillie looks back - eyebrows scrunch in annoyance - as


A fat, oozing tendril snatches her leg - Lillie falters - landing hard on the thick forest floor.


She covers her head as wood splinters down on her.

More to come soon. Thanks for reading.
