Alright, so my girlfriend likes making movies, but she always said she never had anything to film. So, for her birthday, I wrote her a handful of scripts. I'll just forewarn you, they haven't really been edited/proofread, so they're essentially first drafts. It's taken me about a month, but I'm finally uploading them! Download to read (they're PDF) :nod:

Okay, The Group. I know it's a really lame title, but I couldn't think of anything better that hasn't already been taken (The Losers, etc.). A group of guys from all walks of life band together to avenge their friends and stop a serial killer.

Anyway, the story started a while back with a Bond-type supervillain I created for an RPG on some message board. I started coming up with some other villains by myself, and then some heroes who would fight the villains. Also, the character who gets his brain uploaded to a computer is based on my character from a game my friends and I played in elementary school. This story leaves out most of those villains (and one hero), because this is the origin of how the group came together.

I came up against two major problems writing this. First, I had envisioned a team of 4-5 heroes, but I had only really come up with 3 of them (not counting the one who joins them later). So coming up with characters who had cool different backgrounds was tough. And then it was just a pain trying to figure what circumstances actually brought them all together.

This is random, but I also want a lot of music references in it. The character being named 'Major Tom' is the biggest. I was going to create a lot of dialogue from song lyrics, but I decided for copyright reasons I wouldn't do that, so it's mostly relegated to character names right now. But every time I imagine a scene, I try to come up with the perfect song to go with it :D

I've actually done some art for these characters, too, so I'll have to get to uploading that...

Very nice, and I can see it as a good TV series (probably on FX or HBO).

thank you! I was thinking movie series, but HBO would be perfect!

Yeah, it felt more like a TV series for me.
