Take Part In A KITFR Blogathon on Sat 8th October 2011!

Who is your favorite film character? Wouldn't it be great if you could speak to him/her? Well -- now you can!

I want you to let your imagination fly --- go off into your fantasies and have a meeting with the film character of your choice. Maybe you'll sit down with Forrest Gump to talk about life, maybe you'll interview John McCLane about all his Die Hard exploits. 


There's no right or wrong here. This isn't a contest. I just want all of us to have the luxury of spending time with a character we love. It could go something like this:

KID 
Forrest, I've always wanted to meet you!

FORREST GUMP 
What's a blog?

KID 
It's a place to have discussions, be part of a community!

FORREST GUMP
Mom always said community is something special. 

KID 
It is! 

Or maybe it's more like this, a conversation with MARK ZUCKERBERG (the fictional, Sorkin-version):



KID 
How are you? 

ZUCKERBERG 
Me? Fine. 

KID 
What have you been up to? 

ZUCKERBERG 
Facebook.

KID 
Cool, anything else, been on holiday or anything? 

ZUCKERBERG 
I don't have time. If I went on holiday I'd be someone who goes on holiday, but I'm someone who built Facebook which is why I'm in the offices of Facebook. Can I help you?

KID 
I just want to chat. 

ZUCKERBERG
Chat? 

KID 
It's what people do sometimes. 

ZUCKERBERG 
Sometimes people chat. Sometimes people watch reality TV in their underwear. If I do what people sometimes do I may end up doing nothing at all. 

KID 
Okay.

ZUCKERBERG
We done? 

KID 
Okay. 

ZUCKERBERG
Okay.

So here's your chance! Don't get caught up worrying how they really speak. You don't need to be a screenwriter -- you just need to go off up into that brain of yours and imagine a conversation with a film character. I'll be doing one too! :D 

I hope you all join in! Feel free to share this as much as you can, it would be a lot of fun to see many people do this!

Please post your imaginary film character dialogues on your website/blog THIS SATURDAY, the 8th October 2011

"Film Character Dialogues - A Kid In The Front Row Blogathon"

Care to share?

  1. This is a cool idea, I'll see if I can participate. I thought you'd write one for Audrey Hepburn... oh how I'd love to have breakfast with her, at Tiffany or wherever, but I might be too intimidated by her beauty to open my mouth! Your dialog is great btw, that Zuckerberg one makes me laugh.

  10. I think this is a brilliant idea and I support it completely. Have had a go with a couple of my favourite characters but it just doesn't work. Absolutely love the dialogue in your post though and am looking forward to tomorrow's post from you and to reading the other contributions.
