Script-A-Month: December's Title!


Script-A-Month

DECEMBER


Random happy thought :P

Okay, y'all, it's that time again!

You read last month's script, (or one of them.... the psycho edition is in the works right now....), based on stories YOU thought up!

Now... it's time to do it again for December! 

And the title is a little different this time.

You ready for it??

(If you're out of the loop, rules are provided in the following.)

Here is December's short's title:

En Route to Mississippi

Intriguing, no?

Personally, it sounds like a road trip movie to me. But there are vast possibilities!!!

Here are the rules in case y'all have forgotten:



•Make up a short story premise/loose outline based on this title. 

•Comment with your genius in the comment section of this post. 

I will then pick one (or a few) and turn it into a screenplay. 

And it will be posted by the end of December.

I really do hope to shoot these things someday :)

I was also wondering..... should I give out some sort of little prize each month that the commenter's are eligible to win? Like, pens..... or a book.... or candy or something??

Tell me if that's a good idea. I'll do a "P.S." post for this one if everybody likes that idea. 

If that doesn't fly or DOESN'T work on my end, I want to be able to do something else fun for you all..... any ideas??? 

Maybe everyone who comments is eligible for a *gasp* Guest Post or Blogger Interview!!! :D :D :D

Now, that sounds like an idea!!


Forget it, we're going to go with that. 

Physical prizes may come into play in later months. 

But this month: Everyone who comments for the December title with an idea has the potential to do a Guest Post here on the blog. The winner will be announced when the script is published. 

Alright? Is anyone's head fried?

'Cause that was confusing. 

o_O

Anyway, go on, thou genius folk!

1....2....3..... GO! Comment, comment, comment! 

Gosh, I really am hyper.....

"Road Trip to Mississipi" ... I myself would be inclined to do something really wacky and have someone and their gang of not-so-imaginary friends travelling across the world searching for the paradise they see denoted on a scrap of paper - a scrap of paper from a Pizza Hut in Mississipi.

Probably too long, but it just popped into my head as being a funny idea :)

'En Route to Mississippi'--A steamboat/paddleboat is the first thing I thought of.
Or a girl who can't spell who's moving to Mississippi?

Hannah Joy said...

En Route to Mississipi. Y'know, I'd probably do something really wacky. Hm...someone is going to Mississipi and she comes to a strange looking sine. When she touches it she is transported to.....

Ok, that sounds slightly lame. Maybe something more like...I dunno. Maybe this girl (or boy) is babysitting a few kids while their parents are in...oh, the Bahamas, whatever. But then the parents go missing and the babysitter is supposed to bring the kids to Mississipi (to their grandma or aunt or something). On the way....something happens.

*smacks forehead* That sounds kind of lame too. How bout someone's dad got kidnapped in Mississipi, and that someone has to go find him? Or...something to that affect.

Or...A train! Yes! *pumps fist* Something happens on a train that is...well, En Route to Mississipi!

Did I...help much?

Hannah Joy said...

Ho boy. Not "sine", SIGN. Sorry about that. Trying to type as quickly as I'm thinking.

Abby said...

Are we supposed to write the script, or write ideas for it?

The Director said...

Just ideas, sorry for the confusion :) If you feel so inspired, you CAN write your own story-- let me know if you do so I can read it-- but it's not necessary ;)

Corey P. said...

Cool idea for the prize, Abby! Nice 'un! ;)

En Route to Mississippi

Hmmm. Sounds like a comedy; however, I'm rather sinister-minded (I scare myself sometimes, no kidding), so I'm gonna put forward something slightly darker... ;)

What if the "Mississippi" in the title isn't the "Mississippi" we usually think of?

Suppose the main character heads to Mississippi... only to find that Mississippi doesn't exist anymore. Not only that, but anyone he talks to has never even heard of Mississippi. The state (as we know it) seems to have disappeared entirely - from the maps, from the English language, from people's memories. As if it never existed in the first place.

This causes the main character to question his sanity, and... well, I'm sure you could think up something clever to continue the story with. :D

Christopher said...

What if the main character's name is Mississipi? And what if the MC's family is moving to the state Mississipi?

Its not much of an idea, but I would certainly go see it in theaters if it came out.

Oh, and great prize!!

En Route To Mississippi- A State Trooper/Deputy person has to transport a heinous murder suspect to Mississippi from a few states away.

He is all prepared to transport this rough, murdering "dude." He discovers that his suspect is this petite, pretty, rather meek young woman.

Over the hours of driving he learns bits and pieces of her story. Not only is he convinced she is innocent, he starts to have romantic/protective feelings about her.

Just after crossing Mississippi state line, knowing that their time is coming to an end, they decide to have as close to a "date" as they can-- a lunch Picnic-style out in a field.

After setting things out, he turns to the squad car to bring her over, but discovers she has escaped without a trace. End.

Ooh, you're good........

Instead of a prize... clean the house :)
