Torbay filmmaking John Tomkins got in touch about his latest project, a cross between The Third Man and Fugitive. And he’s after a script writer to help get the project off the ground. Over to you, John…
It’s 11am ‘David York’ has just received a shocking message from his wife. In a panic he runs from the table where he is having a business meeting with his best friend. Returning home he finds his wife has gone and so has everything else. On the lounge wall are painted the letters TC. So begins David’s search and the beginning of They’re Coming.
The best way to describe what I’m trying to achieve with the feel of They’re Coming is a cross between the The Third Man and The Fugitive – utilising the great scenery and narrow streets of Torbay. I’d also like to inject the suspense of those new and old-fashion thrillers – you’re not sure who to trust and the story twists and turns.
I have finished the plot of the picture and, with help of local actor Adam Barfield, have put together a pitch teaser trailer for the film. They say bad dialogue can ruining a picture and sharp dialogue can make a film great. I am looking for a screenwriter / writers to help me write the script and to make sure it’s razor sharp before a frame of film has been filmed. I’m looking to commence shooting in spring 2011, for a release date of late 2011. If this sounds like your sort of thing, please contact me with your details at firstname.lastname@example.org
On my other project news I have recently completed a website for my last project Like an Angel, where you can find out about the team behind the picture, as well as watch a show reel of scenes from the film. Plus on the music front I have recently released a new EP on iTunes called Super Flavour Cool Dial Matrix, which features the song Midnight, the video for which was on my last post on D+CFilm.
