Night of the Comet transcript - posted by Don

I was cruising Joblo.com’s Top 10 Movie Cheerleaders when I came across this fantastic site for the 80’s cult classic Night of the Comet. Night of the Comet was one of the quintessential 80’s movies with big hair and shoulder pads. I was delighted to find an excellent transcript (not script ) of the movie on the download page. It is in PDF format and very well done. For those of you not well versed in Night of the Comet, it is about Two girls from the Valley wake up to find that a passing comet has eradicated their world and left behind a mysterious red-dust and a pack of cannibal mutants. With the help of a friendly truck driver, the girls save the earth from a villainous “think tank,” karate chop their way through flesh-eating zombies, and, of course, find time to go to the mall.

You can find this and other excellent transcripts (they are decents reads and follow the movie dialogu exactly) on the Movie Transcripts page. – Don

Lost and Found and 15 other original scripts - posted by Don

As promised, rather that just dump fifteen to thirty original scripts on the unproduced scripts page and say, “have at it”, I’ve randomly-ish pulled one and read it.

I read Lost and Found (click on the title when you get to the discussion board.). It is a short script – 12 pages in MS Word. I selected it because it was the last of the 16 original scripts I posted today. That is the only reason I picked it.

The log line is: Whilst camping, two young men come across a time capsule with documents and memorabilia 60 years old. Through examining the items they reflect on their own lives and dreams. .

The formatting is a bit off which I find distracting, but was nonetheless able push through that. The writer of the script, Nicholas, is from Australia. I love the non-American perspective of the world and interesting turn of phrase. I’d love to know what a ‘footy’ is. This is very much a contemporary piece with reference to events currently unfolding in our world.

If short dramatic pieces are not your bag, there are tons more scripts of every genre on the unproduced scripts page. – Don
