Another FlexRex film script

Lately I’ve found that contests are an effective means of combatting Writer’s Block. The folks over at NYC Midnight were hosting a scriptwriting contest recently, so I decided to enter.
They give you a genre and a topic to work with and one week to complete a script of up to 15 pages. My assignment was to write a suspense film with a magnet in it. The magnet part is what they call in the industry a “Macguffin,” which is incidental to the real story.
So I entered “Jigsaw Falling into Place” with this tagline:
“Angie Davis has vanished. As Caleb tries to find her, the lodestone is the only clue to her fate.”
And that was so much fun that I decided to adapt the story for the Radiohead video contest I blogged about the other day.
Ed note: I took fifth place in my heat. Not enough to win money, but considering how many I was up against, I’ll take it as encouragement 😉


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
