Below are brief summaries of films I have written. If you've never read a movie script I recommend the experience. The average script is 110 pages long. But unlike reading a book each pages takes less than a minute to read. And each page, with a small investment of time, will take you on a wonderful journey. I've listed some script reading tricks below. So now,
Take a minute and read through the movie previews below and if one peeks your interest please click the link.
A WORK OF ART
Concept: A comedy caper.
Chiseled from a one thousand pound slab of marble the "Flying Porpoise," an abstract sculpture, tumbles killing its creator. On its way to an art exhibit it falls from the back of an armored truck and causes a seven hour traffic jam on the Golden Gate Bridge. Later is it the “Flying Porpoise” that causes a fire or a minor earthquake or injures the thief? No wonder there's a curse.
When the sculpture lands in the reluctant custody of Peter Tuelly, he does everything he can to return it. But all hell breaks loose, Peter's inept. He's not ready for the big league. Criminals, cops, and the media are after him. Assisted by a woman who craves excitement and a neurotic art critic, Peter dons a new persona and uses some of San Francisco's most colorful and exotic locations to add his own slant on the curse of the "Flying Porpoise."
