Olympic Gold - A Kid In The Front Row Screenplay
Last week I wrote an article for Anomalous Material called "The Elusiveness Of Cinematic Greatness".
In the article, I quipped; "Why of all the movies does Shawshank transcend? Don’t throw phrases at me like, “It has universal themes.” So what!!? When I was eight I wrote a story about a goldfish which won the Olympics. It had universal themes. It sucked."
Here are three comments which mentioned the goldfish:
Nick Prigge: "By the way, could you forward me a copy of the script about the goldfish that wins the Olympics? We could probably get 2.5 mil from Paramount."
NeverTooEarlyMP: "And I’m with Nick about wanting to see the goldfish movie get made."
CitizenScreen: "Enjoyed reading this! And, I think a story about a goldfish that wins the olympics would make an awesome screenplay!"
Taking this feedback to heart -- I decided to pen the screenplay for what will undoubtedly be a smash hit --- "Olympic Gold". I hope you enjoy!
I am only interested in selling this story idea to the major studios in a seven figure deal.
