just needed to write a script and this was sent to VCU already but im going to use this idea of my film to write an actual script for another College, Emerson College (which needs to be 5-10 pages)
let me know if this is a good idea for a short film!
let me know if each scene is too common or not...i want to have a unique idea but idk if this is unique or not.
When three girls had problems in their lives, they concurrently make their wishes without knowing each other. It begins in Richmond, Virginia with Mary who yearns to fit in with the popular crowd. She arrives at a party where she is quickly surrounded by judgmental whispers. She dashes to the restroom and contemplates ingesting several pills.
Meanwhile in Houston, Texas, Kelly is pregnant, but Joe, her boyfriend, is unaware. Kelly arrives at Joe's house to tell him the news; however, Joe accuses her of cheating before she could even speak. Joe shoves her down, hurting the baby.
During that time in Salem, Massachusetts, Cady sits at the kitchen table finalizing her homework while her mother, Sydney, cleans the kitchen. The father, Tom, storms in and yells at Sydney for unknown reasons. Tom pushes her away and throws his wedding ring aside.
As the three girls wallow in their sorrow, they notice the time: "11:11P.M." They have heard of the urban legend that when the clock reaches this time, one can make a wish and it would come true. As they simultaneously make their wishes, time stops due to the powerful force of their combination. Will the girls' wishes come true?
