Oscar Night

TITLE: Oscar Night

PREMISE: Evan McCray is a cowboy and not just that he teaches agriculture at Texas smallest high school. He’s also been nominated for Best Original Screenplay. Chloe Baker is a struggling actress in Los Angeles. An accident propels this unlikely pair together on a date Oscar Night.

GENRE: Drama, Romantic drama

TIME: Contemporary

SETTING: Los Angeles, California

MARKET: USA, International

WRITER: Alan Nafzger

CONTACT: alan.nafzger@gmail.com

COPYRIGHT: 2016

OTHER INFORMATION: This is a compete and ready to shot screenplay.

When a long-shot nominee screenwriter’s date falls through, he finds a more than adequate replacement.

This screenplay is Pretty Woman (1990) meets the Academy Awards.

CHARACTERS

Evan McCray (24) teaches Agricultural Sciences at Texas’s smallest high school. He is of course very rural Texan, a cowboy. He has written a screenplay and it has become a hit in an era where western films just aren’t done. Everything goes as planned by his agent, until his date falls through. He is a good hearted cowboy thrown into a nest of vipers and without one of the snake tongs (reptile grabber).

Chloe Baker (28) is a want to be starlets. She grew up in Los Angeles wanting to be a star. She has been lost in the crowd and has never really had an opportunity. However, fortune smiles on the brave. There seems to be a curve for women in Hollywood and Chloe knows she is just past her prime. She has a crappy job during the day and is an “escort” at night. Most of her money goes to acting lessons, photography and fashion. She has a negative jaded opinion of herself, but she still works out and there is a modest effort remaining.

Bells Braune is a TV starlet who can’t make the Oscars. She is bitten by a shark. It is a tragedy as she is a star because of how she looks in a bathing suit. Her let isn’t gone or anything but there are about 50 stitches in her leg. She isn’t too broken up about it. She is chiefly a surfer and secondarily she is an actress. It is almost like an “honorable scar” or “badge of honor” with her surfing buddies. She is named after Bells Beach in Australia.

Jack is a nervous and desperate agent.

Cyndi is an energetic publicist.

CHARACTER ARCH

Evan changes from a reluctant participant and mild mannered cowboy into a high-strung social critic and truth teller.

Chloe changes from a jaded want-to-be actress into a charming starlet. She rises to a feisty energetic new starlet.

Tobit

TITLE: Tobit

PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

GENRE: Religious drama, Jewish drama, drama.

TIME: Contemporary

SETTING: Amsterdam, Neatherlands

MARKET: USA, International

WRITER: Alan Nafzger

CONTACT: alan.nafzger@gmail.com

COPYRIGHT: 2015

OTHER INFORMATION: This is a compete and ready to shot screenplay.

The film would be primarily concerned with the problem of reconciling evil in the world with divine justice. Tobit and Sarah are pious Jews unaccountably afflicted by malevolent forces, but their faith is finally rewarded, and God is vindicated as both just and omnipotent.

Other major themes are the need for Jews living outside Palestine to observe religious law strictly and the promise of the restoration of Israel as a nation.

In the Catholic faith, Tobit is one of the deuterocanonical books which means it is included in the Catholic Bible, but some Christians dispute the book’s validity. 

Tobit is a story like one of Jesus’ parables.  The characters may be fictional, but the message or moral of the story is true.

Unsolicited Material

TITLE: Unsolicited Material

PREMISE: Writers and screenwriters have encountered this roadblock of a phrase many times before: “no unsolicited material” but when a wily and eccentric old African American screenwriter discovers a new Hispanic talent he is no longer willing to tolerate Hollywood’s closed doors. An improbable team maneuver to pitch a movie to a Hollywood heavy.

GENRE: Drama, Hollywood drama

TIME: Contemporary

SETTING: Contemporary

MARKET: USA, International

WRITER: Alan Nafzger

CONTACT: alan.nafzger@gmail.com

COPYRIGHT: 2015

OTHER INFORMATION: This is a compete and ready to shot screenplay.

A character driven “Hollywood” story.

Logline: An improbable writing team, an eccentric African American man and a teen Hispanic male, get a chance to pitch a movie to a Hollywood heavy.

Characters: Joseph de la Cosa (81) holds a grudge against the Hollywood establishment. Juan Rodriguez (19) is a tire repair specialist who listens to everything Joseph says.

Joseph Jefferson
· Internal Conflict – disgruntled and jaded writer fights to conceal this from his young mentee.
· External Conflict – failed screenwriter vs. the big studios.

Juan Rodriguez
· Internal Conflict – debates use of the emulation method vs. produce unique scenes.
· External Conflict – young nearly illiterate teen vs. the film industry.

Macro Conflict: East Los Angeles vs. Century City

Micro Conflict: Minority screenwriters vs. Film Industry Executives

Morgan Freeman? Playing the role of Joseph Jefferson can make an actor legendary. He is a very jaded screenwriter. However, he is fighting an internal struggle to keep his young friend from this same fate. Primarily the character of Juan Rodriguez is that of an impressionable young man.

Film Goals: Layers of fun and inside jokes about screenwriting make this story great fun for writers. But it also has a serious side, a story about trying to make a movie true to life turning into a life that mirrors movies, a kind of philosophical joke. My goal in writing this film is to make it more complex than a single viewing reveals.
