Help Glitch get made - posted by Don

Help Glitch Get Made

Got a little coin? For £5 British Pounds or $6.50 American Money (or 82 degree Fahrenheit – I’m crap at English conversion) you can help get this made. Check out the trailer. Read a little more below and then go to Indiegogo and donate a few bucks.

Anthony Cawood’s award winning short script, Glitch (pdf format), is being made by a filmmaker based in Edinburgh and will hopefully shoot in September.

The Director is currently crowd-funding to pay for the special effects required in the film, so if anyone is interested throwing a little coin to the campaign, it can be found on Indiegogo.

For those interested in the script… it’s a dystopian dark dramedy and sees a wife operate on her husband’s inflamed appendix using a temperamental VR headset, it won the best Horror/Thriller Short Script at the Nashville Film Festival in 2016.

In Flanders Field - posted by Don

 

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Sophie the Gelded Space Stallion – Feature Length Space Opera Available For Production! - posted by Don

Sophie the Gelded Space Stallion (432 pages in pdf format) by Don Boose

Born in the high cliffs of the mountains of Kansas, Sophie, our equine hero, is kidnapped by an ancient race of aliens from Xadu. Sophie escapes in her quest to save the universe and if not the universe, perhaps his Mother. 432 pages

In this sprawling, epic and tribumphant space opera, a lot of things happen. There are tense, emotion filled parts where Sophie and Bob are trapped in the bottomless pit:

            SOPHIE
Even if we never escape this
inescapable bottomless pit,
we will still be free.

            BOB
I know.

A lot of cool stuff happens in space:

            SOPHIE
We are in space! This is so
cool! It is much vaster than
I expected.

            BOB
I know.

Production: Moderate. Cast: A midnight grey horse, someone named ‘Bob’. Budget: Medium to High. Locations: space station, open field, bottomless pit.

About the writer: Don Boose has been spinning tales of space opera gold since 1999. He doesn’t believe in second drafts. The words come from somewhere in space, fullly formed and go into his head and through his fingers on to the written page. He is not available for re-writes.

About the reviewer: Don Boose (different Don Boose) writes reviews of space opera screenplay that are equine in nature. He isn’t fat. He is just retaining A LOT of water.
