I need a script doctor STAT

Seriously. I have a good script idea, and it's written, but it needs a serious punch up. Mostly just the dialogue, anybody interested. I can pay!

Sounds like you are looking for a screenwriter proficient in dialog, not a script dr. Script drs usually offer full analysis, and only some rewrite (of the online ones).

Why don't you give a synopsis of this great idea?

Right now it's 5 pages. Even with rewrites and any additions I don't see it going over ten.

You're very generous All-Star, but you might be taking money away from someone who needs it
But if you can do it for free, the guy should have you write a version too, maybe he can pick the best things out of both.

mlesemann specializes in this very thing. She's one of IT's moderators and she is an experienced screenwriter with a rather accomplished career as a producer. I recommend looking her up.

Sorry about taking so long to respond. I had a long weekend and I wasn't expecting so much action.

The short is about escapism. It's kind of a concept short. It opens with a futuristic world where we meet a man who has come into some sort of world changing information, but then we are pulled away and realize we are watching this through VR goggles by a teenager playing an MMO. The kid and his father discuss not playing too many video games but then the kid realizes a seemingly impossible connection between the game story and his real life we are then pulled away again to realize that all of this is a book being read by a man in his easy chair.

I'll DM all of you the first draft sometime this week. I'm making some updates of my own and hopefully I should have something view-able by Friday!

Thanks for the interest!
