I’m weird about film treatments. I’m a writer by nurture, so writing them is somewhat easy, but at the same time, the creator inside of me wants to express the film in ways that words cannot easily.
For the plot of Prairie Oyster, I’ve decided to simplify it, not by changing it drastically, but by cutting off some of the “space junk” orbiting around. The story will focus highly on the “last summer the Universe ended, last summer I fell in Love.” motif. This provides for the proper story telling aspects that I want. Working them into the script has already executed pages from said script. The treatment however, is still reading a little too much like the current script. I may have to look it over and change a few things.
I’m listening to the fooli cooli soundtrack.
