Screenplay Thursday #11
If the bike represents Paul, and Newton is the one who enables Paul to move forward, then Newton must be a wheel. I began to wonder what would happen if Paul’s metaphorical “wheel” (Newton) also disappeared?
The story is still very much about wheels and cycles (and deconstructing them). But to be honest, this is nowhere near a polished final draft.
Yeah, I probably should have polished up the last draft of The Wheel that I handed in to the instructor (see #9) and been done with it, but I wanted to see if I could make the screenplay something more than a sweet and cute story.
Nothing wrong with sweet and cute, I just wanted to push it and see where it would take me. There are a lot of issues that need to be resolved in this version. Too bad I didn’t think of this earlier – like 5 weeks ago. It means what I have here is not remotely consistent or “finished”, but I have to hand it in tomorrow for a final critique from the instructor.
I hope it’s an interesting direction, anyhow.
