Hi Christopher, thanks for the comments. I feel you might be right about the second phrase, although this guy is a nerd and a geek and I imagine him as someone doing a lot of reading, so he may get
away with it, but I'm pretty sure we could figure out something better for a 13 year old if we made the film. Obviously this 'bio' is in my head and doesn't come across in the 2 pages all that
As for "you're fucking insane" that was pretty much a daily expression when I was at secondary school! ���
But interesting thoughts and I'll give the dialogue another pass.

Suitably dark and the revenge theme works well with the brief, only thing is that I didn't feel the dialogue suited two 13 year-olds, "You're fucking INSANE..." and "A bit late for that, don't you
think?" just felt a little too grown up if that makes sense?

Thanks Jennifer! :-)

Really like this, Mark, especially how it's shot from Gary's POV. Wicked!

Thanks Richard, glad you liked it... And thanks for the suggestions!

Ooooohhh, brilliant. Unfortunately I read some of the comments first which gave me a few hints, so spoiler warning for anyone else :)
I think this works really well. It’s terrifying but we can identify with it.
I had some ideas, which I’ll add, but which I’m not convinced will add anything, but something for you to think about if you like;
1) A more specific/less generic name that William was called by Gary or an escalation of what has happened, ‘Because I’m a nerd, who has no friends to help him, who’ll never be strong enough -
something which is about William saying actually I am stronger than you after all.
2) Perhaps a phone/clock which shows the minutes left to the event.

Thanks All, glad you like it!
Shane, interesting thoughts and will have a think for the rewrite.
Sharn, I tried to be subtle with the reference to how much time they have so I could try and keep the announcement out completely to save space.... the viewers will know what is happening so
hopefully put 2 and 2 together, but a bit more in the reference to time might be useful.
Michael, if someone wants to make this we might need to make sure we have sufficient insurance! :-)

I really like this. It is wickedly wonderful. I did think of things you could add in about dropping off bits with his mum and the shears being 'Ever sharp - A lifetime guarantee' but really it
doesn't need these.

I like this concept actually - the exacting of revenge at the final moments. There was no mention of the impending end of the world though...

With some inventive camera work, dodging and ducking to avoid the thrown items, this looks like a very makeable film. Just need to armour the camera operator!
