Anyone Want to Read an Action/Thriller Screenplay?

Zach Jansen (Level 4) ~ 3/14/2012 12:39 AM

I have a 103 page script and would like some feedback. It's supposed to be an action/thriller, but who knows, right? I mean, there's action and thrills, so it must fit the genre... See? I need some help.

You can email me or post here and I'll get it sent to you PDF PDQ.

A thriller has nothing to do with thrills. It's a set pattern of antag/protag interactions that end in a climax on the protags home-grounds.

However, I'll be happy to give it a read. It has to sit on my read queue and there's several scripts I have to read before it - so it might not happen for a few weeks.

If you're still interested, send it.

That's a different definition that I've been going of off, but okay. Also, I was kind of being facetious.

I'm still working my way through a script by Keaton. And waiting on one from Micah...

I'll take a look...send away

Have I read this one, Zach? If not send it my way.

Send it to me too Zach. I'll try and get it back to you not this Monday, but next Monday.

To me too, but I'll be a little late with the notes.

Zach Jansen (Level 4) ~ 3/14/2012 1:24 PM

There's no hurry with getting back to me. I've working on this one on and off for a few months with no really reason to write it. It's not my typical style or genre, but I had to get it out.

I'm hoping to shop it around to some local producers here in the Twin Cities to showcase the area, but that's still months and months and months (if not years) away.

Anyhow, sending it out to Sally, JP, and Khamanna.

Thanks to those who've returned feedback for me. Greatly appreciated. Lots of new ideas and decisions to make -- most based off the littlest, throw-away/in-passing type comments.

I look forward to seeing how the rest of the notes come out.







By the way, I'm not posting this to rush anyone (really, I'm in no hurry), but to send out my thanks for the help.

If you want any more feedback feel free to send it over. I won't be able to get back to you until end of next week at the earliest though.

Zach Jansen (Level 4) ~ 3/16/2012 5:24 PM

Thanks, Bryony.

I'm a bit jammed up at work for the next week or two but if you send it my way I'd like to give it a read.

Zach Jansen (Level 4) ~ 3/16/2012 11:27 PM

Thanks, Dave. Got your notes already. Much appreciation.
