Fear Love Feature

Needs a lot of work. Based off of the description you gave, I was expecting a more traditional story, with a beginning, middle, and end. I was expecting a character arc of some kind. First thing I would do is redo your concept and logline to give the reader more of a feel for what they're about to read. Let them know this is more of an experience than a traditional narrative. I get that you're going for a more artistic, avant garde, "telling the story through symbols" approach, but it didn't translate into the script very well. There were constant formatting errors that confused the scenes for me. Nevertheless, you seem to be writing with a very specific and clear vision. I have a few ideas on how you can use this script: 1) The plan that requires the least amount of work is to take the script as it is and use it as a personal guide to self-produce your vision. It doesn't have to be a live-action short film. You can make it animated or have it become a graphic novel. 2) Redo the script as a series of storyboards instead. They do this sometimes with highly visual movies, and if you can draw, I would highly recommend taking this option. 3) Go back into your script and properly format it so that you can share it with others properly. It's okay to have a specific, avant garde, artistic, highly symbolic vision, but you need to learn how to communicate that on the page. Learning how to format your ideas properly is essential and non-negotiable. 4) Throw this one out and start over. This may seem harsh, but don't think of it as a waste of time, think of it as a learning experience before your next venture. I get that you're going for a more psychedelic vibe, and that it should make the reader uncomfortable at times, but the goal is to make the reader feel disoriented WITHOUT being confused as to what they are reading. Thanks for sharing your vision with me. Best of luck.


Booksy Bear - Pilot TV Series
Reviewed by: Vaidotas Janulis
4.35

I'd definitely watch this show faithfully. Some would argue that dark and cynical characters have no place in children television, however, I'd strongly disagree. There truly are kids who do think similarly to Booksy Bear (though maybe not in big words like "society", etc) that are seeking relatable characters and solutions to the social problems they face. Most currently produced cartoons, each dumber than the last, can not provide that. Booksy Bear could. I'd say the show is like "Animaniacs", but with a more down-to-earth, relatable protagonist. It has enough loony, random action (items appearing out of nowhere, characters and objects falling etc) to keep the younger viewers interested, and brilliant psychological jokes and metahumor for ages 10+. As an adult, I loved every one of these meta jokes, but I feel like there should have been even more of them in the episode, especially during Chippy's rescue. I'd almost want to hear the bear talking to himself constantly, like, throughout the entire thing, just saying out loud whatever he's thinking. Now that would surely make the show stand out from everything else that's on TV. The story of this particular episode felt a bit generic and cliché: protagonist doesn't want to be friends with a character - villain captures the character - protagonist saves him, they become friends. But that is not really a problem for a pilot episode, where the main goal is to properly introduce all the relevant characters, which was done rather well. I did not care much for the villain in this episode, but I believe he has potential, if given more complex schemes, or if more of his friends/family members are introduced. If not, you could just focus on Chippy trying to integrate Booksy into society, show him the meaning of friendship, that stuff is fun and adorable, with endless possibilities for comedy.


Teddy Hills Short
Reviewed by: mike harper

This is a promising script with significant potential. The genre is not unique, but the story is compelling. It harks back to "Small Soldiers", "Batteries Not Included", "9 (2009)", and 80's syfy movies. Twenty-two pages of an nostalgic story. I'd recommend multi-genre storytelling. A family story, horror series, conspiracy thriller, and adventure tale all blended. DOn't forget that a good story requires character development. The brothers, Mrs. White, and the mystery of who killed the grandfather can propel these figures to our mind's empathy. The dialogue does need work. An example is when the brother inexplicably calls White a bitch. That was far rom out of the field. Strive for an emotional rollercoaster. Why did grandpa choose to embed an A.I. into a teddy bear? How advanced is the A.I.? Why is the battery capacity such an achievement? Will zero point energy be an element? Any trans-humanist concept to touch upon? Be careful to avoid the rabbit hole like what happened with the "LOST" television series that got bogged down with high-concept stories that left too many plot holes and unexplained events. What is the motivation does the A.I. have? Maybe you can go for Stephen King vibes where everything is idyllic on the surface, yet immense darkness lies behind the peaceful facade. Overall, great start! I look forward to more pages to dunk into.
