The only thinking I've been doing lately is work related. And even that's been pretty sporadic. But I needed some time to NOT think until summer classes started.
Spent a lot of time watching sci-fi movies for inspiration, however: Strange Days, Robocop, Hardware, Enter The Void (not really a sci-fi per se, but a total mindfuck if there ever was one). Now I think I'm about ready to start working on this script. I have the main trajectory of the story in my head. I have the killer's identity, too. And tomorrow, I plan on having something down on paper regarding the concept/the invention it revolves around/how Detroit ended up the way I envision it in the script.
Well, not down on PAPER. It'll be on my laptop. Same difference.
I have a 2-4 page synopsis due next Friday. And the first ten pages due two weeks after that. And the first draft is due July 6th. Because I'm a dumbass who likes to punish myself.
I guess I oughta get some sleep. Work in the morning. Maybe I'll fall asleep trying to conjure up a title that blends giallo and sci-fi. Butterfly With Copper Wings?
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
