Not critizing your pitch, but is San Francisco the Pacific Northwest?

I just happen to know that the producers are Canadian (I think).

Of course they could always negotiate with you to change it to Seattle if they wanted to.

Re: Seek script that can be shot in the Pacific Northwest


For your consideration as an unconventional and thought-provoking project I present “Joy-Bot Paradise.” The script takes a comedic view of the rising threat from the combination of automation and autocracy. It takes the “robot anxiety” of today and projects it into the future.

LOGLINE:
In this dystopian rom-com set in 2040, a man and a woman face-off against girlmageddon, the phasing out of the female gender.

SYNOPSIS:
Set in 2040 when the United States has fractured politically into ten sovereign territories, with Seattle as the capital of one of these territories, the self-appointed governing council is considering a motion to reduce the female to male ratio. With artificial-womb technology perfected to the point where women are no longer required as gestaters, this move is widely expected to be the prelude to an eventual elimination of “general purpose females”.

Two young people have been selected to present to Council their opposing views on the motion. One of them is Jade, a woman of twenty-five who will be advocating for her own sex. The other is Brendan, a charming man of twenty-five who will be providing an opinion on whether the latest Joy-Bot technology is up to the task of replacing women in their sexual capacity.

Jade confers with some friends as she prepares her presentation for the Council. They debate the merits of womanhood and all the possible arguments for retaining it.

Brendan confers with his buddies at a bar where they drink too much and act like idiots.

Jade is advised by the wife of the Council president that her presentation is for show only, and that Council’s only true concern is in hearing Brendan proclaim the arrival of the long-awaited Joy-Bot Paradise. Jade’s only hope to save the future of her gender is to undermine Brendan’s presentation so that Council will not get the endorsement they want for their motion.

Jade contacts Brendan and convinces him to meet with her to discuss their presentations.

When they get together Jade loses sight of her objective of winning over Brendan and instead becomes frustrated with his willingness to accept girlmageddon. She belittles him and he walks out.

Jade is more than a little surprised when it turns out that Brendan finds her confrontational style to be highly invigorating and much preferable to his Joy-Bot experience.

Brendan’s altered attitude leads to romantic feelings between them. Problems arise when Brendan’s government-appointed handler uses legal coercion to get Brendan to agree to a positive review of the Joy-Bot.

When she delivers her presentation to Council, she warns them of the threat of becoming protoplasmic replicas of the bots they so cherish. This so impresses Brendan that he dispenses with his prepared text and rejects the notion of a Joy-Bot paradise..

Upon learning of Brendan’s actions Jade becomes convinced that a romance with him might be worth a try even if the future for both of them looks decidedly un-promising in the dystopian world of the second half of the twenty-first century.

The script is designed to be produced on a limited budget, with few locations and few actors, and no special effects. There are no robots in this script.

Re: Seek script that can be shot in the Pacific Northwest


Hello!

This Script takes place in the Great Pacific Northwest (Canada)...It is called Summer Indian or Salish [sign in to see URL] thing different is your target [sign in to see URL] script is for pg 13 and up.

Logline:

Despite the death of his parents, best friend and younger brother through alcohol, a Native Canadian lacrosse player stands tall, smashing the status quo of a mad racist town, when he powers his team to a Championship.

Synopsis:

  1974:
 Hot shot lacrosse playing Roddy (17) rips a goal, securing a seemingly insurmountable lead of three games to none for his North Shore Indians team in the best of Seven Championship series against Brad (17) and the much hated all Caucasian Blazers. As Roddy jogs back to the bench, Brad, ever the catalyst, rears his ignorant child-like self. “Go back to the slummy Rez, ya bunch of Jigaboo’s”. Vern (17), Roddy’s best friend, thwarts Roddy’s incessant hate toward Brad, urging him to march on to their destiny in honor of his younger brother Samuel, who was mauled and beaten five years earlier in a cruel, harsh Reform School.”For Samuel, Bro”.”For Samuel”.
Flashback:
 1969:
 Roddy and Samuel’s Mother lays face down on the open street, dead from Vodka poisoning . A throng of Native kids encircling her taunt and tease Samuel (8) as he gush’s tears while embracing his Mother tenderly. Roddy (12), Vern (12) and Sally (12) a loyal female friend, bounce up to the nightmarish scene causing the other kids to disperse. As Samuel sobs, they watch with absolute horror etched on their faces. A month later their Father is beset with the same tragic circumstance. Roddy and Samuel are then torn from their environment and whirl-winded through the courts to a hellish life of abuse, into the prison like denizen of an evil, nefarious pedophile. It is here, with a saving act of immense brotherly love by Samuel that the two brave soldiers are separated forever. The fun filled memories of carefree days frolicking and fishing together in their safe pleasurable creek sanctuary, waning as rapidly as their childhood innocence.
1974:
After the game, Roddy crushes the status quo by stealing away with Brad’s girlfriend, Sharon (17) to an all-night party on the Rez, setting off a barrage of fists and disparaging insults when the series resumes in game four. Later that night, suspended, shamed and racked with remorse, Roddy and Vern seek refuge in a destructive drunk. Roddy staggers off into the dark night. Vern wheels his cut up Chevy recklessly down the street, at breakneck speed.
Days later, Roddy and the Lacrosse team are gathered around Vern’s grave. Old Joe (80, elder Shaman) smiles broadly toward Roddy, devouring him with his concerned, father like eyes.
Roddy, unable to come to grips with life on life’s terms, embarks on a self-humiliating drunken binge, walking aimlessly around town, eaten alive with hatred when he catches sight of the newspaper headlines in the paper boxes, extolling the heroics of Brad leading the Blazers to a showdown in game Seven. Later that night, Roddy finds himself nestled inside Old Joe’s cabin. He is mentored by truthful wisdoms from this kind, funny, insightful Shaman. “I saw the White Wolf this morning. He told me Roddy Nahanee is in trouble and needs your help. To lose your mind and body to another person is unthinkable. But to lose your heart and Spirit, is a living Hell”. Old Joe’s words and spiritual guidance are a soothing gentle tonic for Roddy, bolstering him to stand tall and stride with a new found pride toward his destiny and the sacred Honoring of Samuel.

produced screenwriter's Pacific Northwest script


Hi,
I am a multi-produced, award-winning screenwriter, with 4 feature film writing credits, the latest of which stars Ben Kingsley.
My latest effort is THE CELLIST, a thriller set in the Pacific Northwest, targeted to your demographic and budgeted at under $1 million. I co-wrote THE CELLIST with up-and-coming writer Jon Charles. The logline, synopsis and my bio and credits follow.
I look forward to your requesting the script. If so, please share your name, bio and credits with us.
Cheers,
Richard A. Lasser

Logline:
When two high stakes smugglers lure a desperate street musician into becoming their unsuspecting mule, they get more than they bargained for.


Synopsis:
BRYCE, 30s and his business partner, CLAUDIUS, 40s are career white collar Canadian criminals looking for a mule to smuggle something very valuable across the border from Seattle into Canada. They spot striking NATALIA, 30s, playing her beat-up cello for donations at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Bryce woos her and in time, Natalia and Bryce seem to fall in love so deeply, that she even forgives him when he accidentally breaks her cello. He gets it repaired and to make it up to her, invites Natalia and her daughter, PENELOPE, 8, to come north to Vancouver with him.
When Bryce is murdered there, she becomes a suspect. but Claudius comes to her rescue, spirits Natalia and Penelope away to a private island in British Columbia. One night, while Natalia and Penelope sleep, TWO ARABS visit Claudius, who peels away the repaired back on Natalia’s cello exposing a priceless manuscript stolen from a Syrian antiquity site by ISIS. Claudius sells it for millions. After the Arabs leave, Claudius tries to murder Natalia and her daughter, but after a fierce struggle, Natalia chokes Claudius to death with her cello bow. Or so she thinks. After one last fight to the death, Natalia and Penelope escape in Claudius’s cabin cruiser – with the cash.
On the water, Natalia’s smile fades into a flashback to the opening scene. While playing in Seattle, she overhears the conversation between Bryce and Claudius. They need to find a mule to smuggle a priceless manuscript to Canada to exchange it with the Arabs. She turns toward the men, opens her legs invitingly around the cello, and beckons them to her with her eyes.

Twist: Now, it’s clear: in this unexpected twist we learn at the very end that she entrapped them, to get the big score – not the other way round.

Re: Seek script that can be shot in the Pacific Northwest


Hi. I'm pasting the loglines for a few projects that can be shot in the PNW (I'm from Victoria myself so I know the area) for your stated budget.

Thanks.

LOGLINES:




(Rom Com) “Bach Rocks,” A rock star is stranded at a classical music conservatory while being taped 24/7 by a reality TV show crew. He falls in love with the school's beautiful dean, who hates his music, his lifestyle and isn't crazy about his supermodel girlfriend either.

 (Dramedy) “The Life and Times of Lesbian, Alien, Opera Singers,” A billion dollar budget, every superstar in town, the worst script ever written, and a drunken screenwriter who refuses to write anything but technical manuals. Yup… par for the Hollywood course.

(Drama) “Freedom Cafe,” A wounded Iraq War veteran's terrible childhood secret is slowly revealed as he undergoes psychotherapy as part of his rehabilitation.

 (Drama, Low Budget) “Face Time,” A beautiful reporter becomes fascinated by a brilliant but grotesquely disfigured man who may have won the biggest lottery in history.

(Drama) “Performing Love,” Two estranged daughters of an abusive father meet for his funeral to try to resolve the anger they feel toward him and each other.

Re: Seek script that can be shot in the Pacific Northwest


I have a musical comedy for film script titled NO MATTER WHAT FOREVER. Set in Vermont; but the locations are generic and could be shot most anywhere. Leads in their 30s-40s+. Would get a PG rating. Demo song on the YouTube link below. Lyrics on CDbaby.
