I recently decided to have a go and write a script for my film club's North vs South competition. This were clubs up and down the country enter films based on a fixed title. 2015's title is 'Broken'.

Brian Eastty who has appeared in 2 of our films has agreed to come back and play the husband and he will be casting the wife for me.
Storyboards have been done but on my iPhone using an app called StoryboardQuick. Very good but I can print or send them to anyone unless I buy the desktop version at $299! So I will be doing them again just using InDesign, photos from the locations and 2D characters.
Locations will be my mother's kitchen, my garage and a field nearby.
There are 2 props needed. The metal detector which I can either rent for £33.00 a day from HSS hire around the corner or buy a 'starter pack' from ebay at £36. Will probably buy one as I plan to shoot at the weekend so HSS will charge for two days as they are shut Sunday.
The second prop is a little trickier. The alien object the husband discovers. I have done a CG render (see gallery) and my good friend Graeme has agreed to make it. Very exciting!
The competition entry date is 31 October 2015 with the show being on 6 December. Plenty of time to make so hoping to shoot when the weather stables... probably June/July.
I still want to make 'Retirement' although I have renamed it 'Restructure' so if all goes well I may make 2 films this year !!!
