Philosophy INC Saves Roanoke
This is a script I wrote and planned on filming but never did unfortunately. I had really been influenced by the French director Jean-Pierre Melville and wanted to tell a story in a straightforward, simple but direct and effective way, like I understood Melville. Here's a link to the script. And here's a bit from the first page:
Story: Philosophy INC, essentially a warehouse for ideas and treasures, has been in Roanoke for over 100 years. Now several parties seem to be fighting over whatever treasures Philosophy INC has in its possession.
Setting: Roanoke, VA
Dr. Chaima: An African man of the world. What is his purpose in Roanoke?
Austin: A Philosophy INC employee
Claire: A Philosophy INC employee
Dr. Jack: Is he the head of the gang that wants to steal from Philosophy INC? Jane Harrison: What does Jane want? What is her connection to Dr. Jack? Cop #1: A corrupt cop, there to do the gang’s bidding.
Cop #2: Another corrupt cop.
Tina: A hired assassin. Max: The person behind Dr. Chaima’s visit
Tattoo man: Why is this man murdered? Motel woman Little genius
Feel of film: Shot in grittier parts of Roanoke, use music to create strange vibe. Use of blue filters if possible.
