HELP WANTED: Looking for writing cooperation

HELP WANTED: Looking for writing cooperation

Looking for a writing buddy to help take my script ideas from ideas in my head, to something on paper and beyond.

By Knightrider - 11/11/2012
Basically I enjoy writing scripts, and I enjoy Comicbook characters, but I one day would love to be writing a script for any number of characters that actually get made into movies for fans across the world to enjoy.

However, in order to do that I perhaps need to start low and work my way up. (Think Josh Franks with Chronicle, where now he is up for major movies)

I am relatively new to actually trying to write in a script format, and I often find myself losing interest in an idea because like most people I work full-time, and can need help whenever I hit a problem with the story or writers block and lack people around me who share my passion so thus I don't have that person to bounce ideas back and forth with.

This has left me feeling somewhat frustrated that I have several potential ideas, but can't get them out and made into a complete script.

So what I was hoping was to find a person(s) who would be interested in helping take my ideas to the next level, you may even have your own concepts that need help with so would be a neutrally benefiting partnership.

Ideally once complete, I would like to use tools such as Amazon Studios, or other potential avenues to allow these to get made into proper features, and if successful imagine that starting from a mere idea on this website we could one day be writing a Marvel movie, a DC movie and it can all start now.

Like I said, I work full-time, but I am sure could arrange a a chat once a week, and I have programs such as Celtx, which aids users to work on scripts from various locations and/or devices.

So, before you respond I guess may help to have a little background knowledge about what types of films I am into, and what type of films I would like to make...otherwise any potential working partnership goes up in smoke if one of us wants to make period dramas and the other action blockbusters.

Well, I am into Science Fiction (Not OTT, but like to push the boundaries E.G. Think the TV Show Fringe), Action (I can enjoy both thought provoking and mindless action movies, if done right both can be good fun), Obviously Comic book movies (Yep, enjoy comic books and comic book based movies, and the purpose of this is to to write one based on any number of characters), Thrillers, Horror (Although, I am not into the whole zombie craze, nor do I think horrors are good if they are just gore, gore, gore I think suspense is best when I watch or have an idea for a horror script).

I would say that many of my ideas involve elements of the above, if you're someone that is more into rom-coms than anything I have mentioned I don't take it personally and wish you the very best, as it is a tough industry to crack.

For those still reading, and interested, then the type of person I am looking for is someone motivated, knows how to write a script (Don't have to be perfect as I am not), would be good if had Celtx (It's free), good with vocabulary, creative, able to bounce ideas back-and-forth, doesn't take criticism as an insult (I am sure I will have many ideas that will suck, part of this is helping develop the good ideas into great ones and if something isn't working then it doesn't work, that isn't a reflection on the person), mature, understands story and narrative, and someone who also enjoys writing and has a passion to believe that this could turn into a career.

Now, if you think this sounds like you then just leave a comment and we can have a bit more of a chat and share a couple of ideas to see if thinking along the same lines if not no worries I won't take it to heart.

I look forward to hearing from anyone, preferable to be in Wellington, New Zealand as makes meetings around work a lot easier, but with modern technology that isn't a set-in-stone requirement.

Thanks once again for your time.

I wonder how many people on this site are actually even in your hemisphere, lol. Well, maybe The Hobbit articles attract some New Zealanders, lol.

I do happen to like the work you post and you seem to understand the screenplay format and how to write action and dialogue quite well. So, I'm sure you'll accomplish great feats in whatever project you work on.

To anyone:
I'm sure that there are people who don't take my opinion to heart. I don't have any article (yet) to prove that I know what I'm talking about... Oh shit, I just realized how unqualified I am... Eh, what the heck... I'm all for setting up an online chat with any of you guys on this site. It's not like you're signed in to a contract - you can dig out anytime. But I can help.

I guess I can say: I've overcome writer's block. It's a beautiful feeling to accomplish, and I'm glad to help fellow writers overcome that totally shitty bump in the road.

@Antmidnight, yeah, sadly I am looking for a writer, but some advice to you from someone who has directed my own short film: To be a director start off just grab any camera even a phone one and ask friends to pretend to do fight scenes, chase scenes or anything else and film it, and your quickly build how to create a well structured, visually impressive piece.

@95 Thanks, I do think I could do with with improving my vocab. In terms of the writers block need someone who knows narrative, structure and shares same passion for the genres that we naturally can bounce ideas back and forth.

@95, and yeah, it is pretty lonely in this part of the world. Haha

Is there a chance of bringing a 12 year old on board?
Hero020200 - 11/12/2012, 2:44 PM
I have plenty of ideas and have a website, but now that I think about it, I wouldn't find any hours in the day to do this either.
Sorry

I'm with everybody else, your writing is superb. Even this article had a great "Sound of Sentence" structure. Of course I'm only 17 and have to already juggle sports, school, and work, but my dream is to be a film director. I hope you find somebody to help you, you can really make it in the business with your talent!

I'm a regular guy with some time on his hands, but I think this would be a great opportunity to exercise my creativity muscle as a little side project. I can offer my help in your endeavors with the caveat that I would not go out of my way to dedicate time to this if my schedule wouldn't allow it. This would be purely a hobby, not a job, however when I'm in the mood for creativity I tend to try my best in quenching that thirst for art. My career focus is not in writing, but I do find it to be relaxing at times.

If you need any creative input, feel free to send me an email at redstormsstv@yahoo.com.

Hi Knightrider, i was looking for a similar person and stumbled across your advertisement, are you still looking. Although im not writing a script, i am trying to write a book but could easily be turned into a script i think given certain adjustmensts.

Hello knightrider, I have written stories before and have books on writing screenplays aka scripts. I have story ideas as well that have simmered in my brain for bout 12yrs now and I'm constantly have new ideas and concept daily. My father and I have shared ideas amongst each other and I'm always willing to help new ideas come to life.I'm ready to begin whenever you are cuz I really have nothing but time as of late and I would like to be doing something creative. I do write often but haven't awhile due to working as a dishwasher but since I have been laid off, I need to have a new project and maybe helping you could reignite my passion of creating stories.
