It’s Ocean’s Eleven Meets Brokeback Mountain

What am I talking about? Why, the #5dayfeature, of course. It all started with Rachel Langer, one of my new Twitter pals, and her decision to write a thriller in three days. A couple more of us jumped on the bandwagon and we agreed to give ourselves five days to write a feature-length screenplay in the genre of our choice, encouraging each other and offering whatever’s needed, be it criticism, caffeine, or kudos.

I signed up in the hopes that I could actually churn out another screenplay to add to my sorely lacking portfolio. I’m not going to get hired as a script doctor if I don’t have proof that I know what I’m doing, and the only complete script I have isn’t very good. So here goes, follow along with me, won’t you?

IN THE BANK – When a computer programmer discovers his new boss has been embezzling from the company, he decides to take justice into his own hands – and the only person who can help him pull it off is the charismatic bank robber who once took him hostage.

    YES, we’re doing it. Caffeine is definitely on the menu. Page count for today is at 7. Total pages, 38. Need a latte and I’m good to go.
