Idea for film script
Henry loves Jane. Jane loves Bob. Bob loves Trevor. Trevor loves his stamp collection. The stamp collection has no preference, and just sits there.
No one is particularly happy.
One stormy night, Henry runs amok. We see him at home, readying himself. He puts on his favourite music - the theme song from The Muppets - and repeatedly vows to "perforate" people. Carnage results. Henry, Jane, Bob and Trevor all wind up dead.
No one is particularly happy with this arrangement, either.
Inspector Subpotato arrives. He examines the sea of corpses. He examines the stamp collection. He examines his watch. He leaves. He has another sea of corpses to examine elsewhere, and is running late.
Inspector Subpotato has been on the force for twenty-two years. He once solved a case, but only by accident. He never understood how he did it. At the trial, when this became obvious, it led to a change in his professional life. His colleagues started to treat him differently. He received what he would later describe as "a premeditated campaign of smirking."
Meanwhile, the stamp collection sits on a shelf in Trevor's apartment. Unattended, unwatched, unloved.
The next stormy night, the stamp collection runs amok.
Potential problem: no car chases. Also, nothing happens in Scene 47. Actually, there is no Scene 47. So. Two potential problems: no car chases, and no Scene 47.Posted by Sean Hegarty at 10:12 PM in the Mad scientist storytelling category | Comments (0)
