Pass me a bottle, Mr Jones.

I was just deleting some notes from my iPhone. There's lots of film ideas that make no sense to me now, they say things like "man. fruit stall. Bosnia. woman in jeans. ending fire, confusion" - I have no idea what they mean. But I found this one note; and I wrote it when I first found the note function on my iPhone. And I kinda like it, so I thought I'd share it.

It's a bit naive, and cheesy. But then, I'm just a kid sitting in the front row, so I'm allowed to be naive and cheesy. Here, unedited - is the note from my iPhone.

"I want to write a screenplay about coming of age. I want to write about the difficult choices you make and how your choices define who you are. I want to write about how heartbreaking it is when people never find out how you feel. I want to write about the bittersweet pain of life. I want to write about how magic life can be.

I want to write about people who dream. I want to write about people who hang out all night. I want to write about people who are special. People who are magic. I want to write about beautiful girls. I want to write about friendship. About loyalty. About wisdom. About never giving up.

I want to write about how tough life can be and how it's almost not worth bothering. But more than all I want to write about why, without doubt, it is actually very, very worth living."
And that's all I have to say about that.

Care to share?

  2. It honestly isn't a bad idea, I actually think it would be an inspiring piece since it would depict real life and not the false truths many movies try to sell you. Just my opinion. (:

  3. Hey Kid, beautiful stuff. Reading that made me want to hang out all night, kiss beautiful boys and never give up.

    You should write a screen play like that. Really.

  4. "I want to write about how heartbreaking it is when people never find out how you feel."
    - Please do, because it's something everyone struggles with, and a movie about that would be amazing.

  6. You really should write it, I think you'd do a good job of it, and who doesn't want to watch a film like that?

  7. I think you should write about all that you want to write about! Just simply because there so much of what life is in there and I'm sure it'll be the kind of story which most importantly.. makes people think:)
