For the past couple of weeks, there has been a story (or at the very least a concept) that has been floating around my head.
Yes, that’s in addition to the prospective development of ‘Get In, Get Done, Get Out’ and the time I need to give over to writing out ‘Cash Prize‘, as well as keeping tabs on ‘Three Knocks‘ and seeing if anything comes of ‘CALLS‘, which I have submitted via an opportunity listed on BBC Writers Room.
Not forgetting another (as yet not referenced) project that I’m hoping to find interest in.
But, yes, getting back to this other, newer story. Unlike the others, and rather unusually for me, it is a story that touches on, amongst others, a very modern, and very real issue that affects way too many people. But, typically of me, it doesn’t get there in a typical or ‘normal’ way. A way that tests the perception of both the viewer/reader and the main protagonist.
Cryptic enough for you? 🤣
I’m sure you’ve noticed that I used the expression ‘viewer/reader’. The reason for that, is because I’ve yet to decide if I want to write it as a short script for film or a short, prose-form story. I’ll provide updates on that.
The things is, it doesn’t have a name and I have been unable to think of one.
And this is where the ‘Naming Challenge’ becomes pertinent. Below, I’m going to post the ‘logline’ of the short, and see if anyone who reads this can come up with a name for it. Any considered ideas are welcome in the comment box below 👇🏿
The suggestion that resonates the most with the logline and the story will be selected to be name of the project.
“Faced with the disappearance of his young family, and a menacing phone call, Barry is forced to confront not only the fate of his loved ones, but the very nature of his own existence”
The person who suggests it will receive a copy of the script/story as and when (or if) it reaches a more public platform.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to considering your suggestions in comment box below 😊
