    :D

    It was mentioned elsewhere, but I can't find it at the time... I think the idea is to keep your current crew to the 10 we have drafted, then vote on that alone. Then after the dust settles and a champ is decided upon, then you can Epilogue and add your Director's Commentary and discuss the "deleted scenes" so to speak.

    PS - great pick with Buscemi.... he was in the running for my last pick as well!!

    Who is the next picking agent?
    Ok. I looked in the gaming thread. I think it's a double turn for you @Flyboy!

    Stares at the two treatments, fifty files, sticky note board, excel sheet outlines, beat outlines, pocket book of notes, and ten drafts of my current screenplay project generated since August 2020 while still running thirty pages too long.

    If @gholc15 turns in his pick today, feel free to skip me. I might be able to pop in at some point but most likely I'm not going to be around until later tomorrow and I am torn between about 4 different people anyway.

    Wait, just to be clear... This isn't like a full on script or anything, right?? Like I am just working on a like the plot, character arcs and roles, and music score. What all are you guys doing? I am a little scared that this is more than I panned for... @RoyleRancor

    @gholc15 Whatever you can provide, we understand we all have different amount of real world impacts. I am doing a list of characters, a summary of the 3 Acts of the movie, and a little background. However I do have the opening scene of the movie laid out in detail....

    You absolutely don't have to write a full script.

    I'm giving a logline, synopsis (three paragraphs), and who's in it.

    Cheers,

    As "Stargazing" enters its final stages*, "Dante" and "Fun Times" are starting to shape up! Both have a core concept or feeling, which is a great thing. Next thing is to do is to iron out the cast, choose the timeline (for one of these), and then find a theme song.
    Neither will be as expansive as "Stargazing," but that's fine - "Stargazing" is more like the High Republic in that context while "Dante" and "Fun Times" are more like Rogue One or Solo.

    Hey all of you, once again I am super sorry for the big lulls. It has actually been quite an awful month coming off of my trip. My dad has been seriously injured and we have been speaking about surgery to save his back. They have to go in through his throat as to not hurt his spine and we are very worried about his ability to speak. This may be a little too personal but I just feel like I have to share with someone. Any thoughts and prayers are so so greatly appreciated. After we finish the movie game I will probably sadly leave the Cantina for a little while, hopefully not too long, but just enough time to correctly care for my Dad.

    I am on my way to make my last pick now. This really has been a blast and a way to take my mind off of things. So thank you guys. I deeply appreciate it.


    @RoyleRancor just a quick heads up, I think you may have misplaced @Flyboy ‘s pick for mine in the actual selection thread. It’s totally fine, I just wanted to make sure my pick for Elle Fanning went through before I make my final pick.

    We'll make sure it gets fixed up, no worries.

    Definitely has been a fun game! I hope that you get a chance to see it through (and you've made a ton of great picks and I for one really want to see what you had in mind!) but totally understand that you've got a lot going on. Do what you gotta do my friend, your own family is much more important than anything else. We'll be here if and when you need a small distraction!
