For anyone who has browsed the www.emmawatson/forum and looked at the Emma Chat section, you would probably know about this topic already. If so, you can skip down to Links. If not, and this is the first time you have ever seen this topic, please read the following information.
Back in mid December I suddenly got this idea for a movie that I just had to write. It's a romance, not a sexual fantasy/lust sort of thing but an actual love story between two somewhat different people. I won't go into much detail, but the point of the story is to show that life is not predictable, and that even intricate plans can go off into an unplanned direction. Either way, the main supporting character (Emma Reid, 31) is based off of Emma Watson.
Every so often I'll post a new thing here and there to show you guys how this is coming along. So far, this is what is complete:
Emma Reid Description (this is what I believe Emma Watson is like in real life)
James Myer Description (the main character)
First 18 pages
When James and Emma meet (about 6 pages)
Is this all you have done?
No, I just think that these are the essentials to post.
Will you be posting more?
Yes, when I complete and revise them I will post information in this topic.
Why would I go and see this in a theater?
Personally, I don't like the beginning that much. What I do love about this is the middle and end. I believe that is what will make this movie stand out from the rest of the herd.
Will you be making a movie out of this, or is it just for fun?
Yes, I will be in the future. Near the end of the screenplay there is a "SUBTITLE FADES IN" sequence that shows the audience that the year is 2015. I am hoping that the next few months work out like I am expecting them too, so I can make this into a real movie. The About Me page on this forum states that I'm an "Aspiring iOS game developer. I am currently learning the Objective-C computer language, Cocos2d, and OpenGL ES to create amazing iPad and iPhone games." My ideas have never been done before, and seem to be very popular in "app forums." So, I'm hoping to be able to make a lot of money with developing and maybe make an independent movie out of this in the future (2015).
For the actors and actresses, who knows. I'm thinking I would be pretty good for the male lead, but the female lead I am a little stuck on.
Is James Myer based off of you?
No, but I do understand you feeling this if you read the beginning. It just worked out to, well, work out perfectly (what he does explains his personality).
Why are you posting this on the forum?
I really like this community, and I have nobody that I can go to and ask for them to be as critical as possible. They will all say, "It's great." I believe this forum will allow me to make this screenplay to become the best it can be.
If you have any more questions, post them here and I will get back to you. Also, please let me know if you have any suggestions. You can either post them directly on the document, or in the forum. Thanks!
