Good news, everyone!

(In Professor Farnsworth's voice) Good news, everyone! Smile

I have received a request to submit one of my scripts for possible representation by a management company in LA. I have to choose VERY carefully, since the first impression is the only chance I've got. My three strongest scripts are:

"Vox Populi", a dystopian action-thriller inspired by Brexit (the UK's intention to leave the EU). Think movies like Akira and Escape from New York fused with 1984.

"Scarlet Revolution", the first part of a trilogy based on my novel, which can be downloaded here: https://filebin.n...zaaxg5hnx5.

"Athena", the first of two planned films and a loose remake of SR.

I will give the blurbs for each story to assist you, and you can choose which one to vote for.

Vox Populi: In the early 21st Century, following the collapse of Great Britain, a fearless vigilante and a naive diplomat are the British people's last hope in ending the Neo-Conservative Government's iron rule.

Scarlet Revolution: An autistic college graduate discovers a dark secret about the technocratic society in which he lives, and a grim, tense struggle unfolds.

Athena: A trio of mercenaries with the aid of a former spy fight a guerrilla war against a cabal intent on global technocracy.

I must choose which one I want to submit. I welcome feedback and I will choose when enough votes have been cast.

Happy voting!

ha ha... I read the thread title in Professor Farnsworth's voice.

Congratulations and good luck.

In my opinion I'd say Vox Populi as the first choice with Scarlet Revolution coming in a close second. Good luck, Sweevo!

Thank you. Smile I might just send all three - after all, I know how to get responses from such agencies now (took me long enough - 15+ years), so what the hell?
 
BradPaula
Good idea. Why not send them all?

"Vox Populi: In the early 21st Century, following the collapse of Great Britain, a fearless vigilante and a naive diplomat are the British people's last hope in ending the Neo-Conservative Government's iron rule.."


Imho this seems a bit partisan; as though a Marxist Government's iron rule would be any better...
Not sure it is a good idea to potentially divide one half of an audience as the country is split on the question.
So I'd vote for the whichever one is the least judgemental of the two sides...

Agreed. I think Vox Populi would divide and also go badly out of date.

Dark, dystopian futures.. these all sound a bit B7-ish - which can only be a good thing imo.

I chose to send the Athena story. As much as I like challenging norms, traditions and conventions as exemplified in Vox Populi, I don't want to get targeted and possibly murdered horribly by someone with less brains than a Macaque Rhesus monkey following the first course of a Vietnamese wedding banquet (I got that from Red Dwarf Smile ) - I'll have to wait for the smoke to clear and dust to settle. Thank you, everyone. Smile
