Feeders the Movie- Journal - July 2014

July 2 - July 27 - Edit, edit and edit some more - perfect? - no, not yet -  unfortunately :(

July 27, 2014 - a memory came back to me today when I came across a picture of Sean Connery.
A reader of Feeders told me that she imagined that Sean Connery would be a perfect Sir Robert McKay, what do you think?

Sir Robert McKay


When I first created Sir Robert McKay I thought of my father, Johannes Martinus Nel.
Here is a picture of him before he died in 1979.

   
Closest actor that looks like my Dad is:
Christopher Meloni

Feeders the Movie - Journal June 2014

June, 2014
I was approached by Gidget Girl Entertainment, interested in making FEEDERS into a movie. which means I need to transform the Novel into a Screenplay (script).

June 20, 2014
Downloaded MovieDraft from Mac apps and started working on downloading novel into it. Not a great start if you worked for hours in transforming the text and then forget to save it :(

June 28, 2014
Today, I started again and this time save as I go. Much better, here's a sample of how my first draft looks like -


FADE IN

EXT. OPEN ROAD - DUSK

THE RAIN BEAT down onto the windscreen with such force; the wipers were working frantically to keep it clear enough for Anne to see where the road was. Pushing the speed limit a little to get home, she sat leaning forward into the steering wheel of her car with such intense concentration that every muscle in her body started to ache.

ANNE PATTERSON

“I SHOULD HAVE LEFT EARLIER,” SHE TOLD HERSELF THROUGH GRITTED TEETH.

Just then, what she thought was a dog ran with incredible speed over the road. To avoid hitting it, Anne swerved and slammed on the brakes realizing too late, this was a mistake. The car spun out. Correcting the direction the car was taking and with pristine steering, Anne directed the car over branches of a fallen tree that lay on the side of the road. It was either over the tree and its branches or into a bog filled with muddy water. The tree would mean not getting stuck and having to get out into the rain, but unfortunately as the car sped over the branches, she heard one of the back tires burst — this meant she had to get out into the rain anyway.

ANNE PATTERSON

“Shit, ahhhhhh shit,”

 she shouted hitting the steering wheel with her fist.

ANNE PATTERSON

 “Can’t people look after their animals?”

Grabbing her purse, she started muttering to herself looking for her cell phone.

ANNE PATTERSON



 “Here I am on a dark deserted road”

 — finding her phone she flipped it open —
