Today was the day my girlfriend introduced me to the TV Show Franklin and Bash.
And what a show, so far only watched the Pilot episode (watching the second one as I write this, multi-tasking win). Recently we’ve been watching a lot of dramatic TV Shows, for example Sherlock (don’t even get me started) and also Life on Mars, (the UK version obviously).
What I like about this show is how my girlfriend put it, “it’s like a comedy duo have been placed in dramatic situations”and it is, I mean, I’m sure that was how it was written, but they’ve done it really well.
It’s a very fresh show that is something I have never watched before, let alone thought I would enjoy. Has anyone else seen it?
Also, due to mentioning my girlfriend a lot on this post I may as well link her blog, just click the link and you can be on her blog reading her wonderful posts aha.
So today was my first day back at Uni, and it was actually entertaining, no writing was done, but a lot was a announced and we got to do some idea generation which was very fun to do. But definitely the most exciting news was that actor Bill Nighy, who was in both Shaun of the Dad and Hot Fuzz, as well as playing Davey Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean.
Although it is very good he is coming and it will be an awesome opportunity to meet someone talented, someone raised the question after class, why is an actor coming to talk about screenwriting.
It’s hard to write a script when your heart is no longer in it (and you have a rocking hangover still). But as my deadline is on Friday and I’m so close to finishing it would be stupid to change my idea now but it is such a struggle.
My attention span when writing it is like non existent. Although because I’ve nearly finished it that is sort of focusing my thoughts on it a bit more.
It’s based on a true story of something that was very upsetting for me and I guess writing about it is obviously making me think about those memories again, although it was years a go now so it’s not too bad.
Anyways best crack on, need to crack on with a bit more tonight so I can be free to watch Tangled with my other half.
EXT. BEACH. CLIFFTOP. NIGHT.
GAVIN is stood at the edge of the cliff.
Down on the beach below ROY and TONY are sat around the campfire. Buried in the sand is a wheelchair, minimal attention is drawn to this.
GAVIN is talking to himself.
I’m not coming.
No, not this time.
You can’t make me!
Shut up! Shut up, shut up, shut up.
I know how this ends.
GAVIN looks around. Struggles to take a step back but then wobbles forward.
