The first and most important thing to do is meet each other, chat and relax so that we all know that film making is a fun experience for all! Relaxation achieved, we dived right into writing Hollywood blockbusters after briefly sharing our favourite genres and films ...
Title: SOLE MATES
Words: CHATTING, HAPPY, SHOES, ROMANTIC COMEDY
Miss Whittingdon is a shoe model, and has the best feet in the industry. her favourite shoes are an immaculate pair of pink high heels. Pete is a bit scruffy, and has scruffy trainers. Quite surprisingly therefore, Pete works in a shoe shop. One day, Miss Whittingdon comes into Pete's shop to buy shoes. She buys shoes a lot, but this is the first time she has been to Pete's shoe shop. Miss Whittingdon orders Pete around getting her this pair of shoes and that pair of shoes. Pete doesn't mind. Miss Whittingdon barely notices Pete, buys her shoes and leaves. As fate would have it, their paths cross again at the local swimming pool that summer. The way the swimming pool worked was that you had to leave your shoes in a line together before you went poolside. By chance, Miss Whittingdon's pink high heels and Pete's scruffy trainers found themselves next to each other in the line. So whilst their owners were off swimming, the shoes, as shoes do when they find themselves next to each other in a line, started chatting, and you all know what happens when shoes start chatting ... they fall in love of course! Meanwhile, in the pool, Miss Whittingdon was tip toeing along the side [which is how she walked now as she was so used to wearing high heels]. Now tip toeing around a pool isn't the wisest thing to do, and on a particularly slippy tile, she slipped. "Ouch" exclaimed Miss Whittingdon, as it hurt. Pete, nearby, came to her rescue immediately. She wasn't hurt badly at all, and Pete told her nicely to stop exaggerating, but Miss Whittingdon's sense of drama prevailed and she pronounced Pete "A Hero" for saving her. The thing to do when some saves you is to buy them a coffee, or a tea, depending on their preference, and so that is what Miss Whittingdon did. As they sat opposite each other amidst enjoyable conversation, underneath the table their shoes moved towards each other and gently touched, and for anyone who knows anything about shoes, that's as good as a kiss.
Title: THE KILLER HAIRBRUSH
Words: HAIRBRUSH, RUNNING, CONTENT, SCIENCE FICTION
Nighttime in a misty park, the leaves rustle in the wind gently and then fall silent. From nowhere an usually large gust blows up and carries the leaves in all directions, and the sound of feet running fast suddenly breaks the calm. it is not a sedentary night time jogger, this is a sprint. Strangely for a runner, they have a hairbrush in one of their hands, like a strange baton in a relay race. The pace is so fast, the runner is quickly our of the park and out of site.
FLASH FORWARD 100 YEARS
The world is in crisis. According to reports, the world is coming to and end very soon and it's all down to a space probe that was sent into the sun. The probe, malfunctioned, and the sun is now exploding, which is generally thought to be very bad news for Earth and the people there. In a capsule we see the runner from the park momentarily light up and then vanish. Vanish from space, and from time.
FLASH BACK 100 YEARS
Even a scientist brushes their hair. Maybe not Albert Einstein, but this particular scientist definitely did brush their hair, every morning, without fail. It was going to be a problem this morning though, as the hairbrush was missing, and was, as far as the scientist could see, literally nowhere to be found. And so the scientist found themselves leaving their house without brushing their hair, and with their hair looking particularly messy, as it was the kind of hair that really needed brushing. The first steps out of the door were OK, but then, very quickly, people began to stare. At the hair. The scientist didn't like staring. It made them feels insecure, and with the feeling of insecurity rising, they went back into the house to continue the search for the hairbrush, and search that would last all day and ultimately prove fruitless. Now we've all heard of the butterfly effect, and we know about dominoes when we stand them on end in a line and then knock the first one over. Observe. The scientist lost their job for not turning up. Another scientist was given the job instead. Now jealous, the unemployed scientist vowed revenge, turning up outside the new scientist's house one morning. Now this happened to be a very important morning, as it was the launch of a space probe to the sun which the scientist had been leading on and had exclaimed, the very day before, ready to go. As it turned out, it wasn't ready to go, as the scientist had forgotten one very important thing, and, having realised this in the bath the night before, was on the way to work that day to fix it before the launch. The unemployed scientist, unaware of this series of events, went through with their dastardly murder plan.
The space probe to the sun went off that day because, even though everyone was very sad at the murder of their scientist friend, there was no reason not to launch the probe. And so it launched, and when it reached the sun, it's little problem which would have been fixed of the scientist hadn't been murdered, became a big problem. It caused the sun to explode.
Meanwhile, what of our time traveling runner. Arriving at the scientist's house the morning of the now infamous hairbrush incident, they knock quickly on the door just after the scientist has disappeared back inside to resume the search for the missing hairbrush. "Yes" the scientist barks sharply after opening the door. "I've got a hairbrush for you" says the runner, saying it in a manner as if they were implying that this little gift offer could save the world. "I don't use other people's brushes" yelled the scientist, a little bit more harshly than the situation required, and slammed the door. The runner stood there, hairbrush in hand, knowing that in 100 years the world would end.
