Jack & Joan

Step 1 - Selecting my text: 

From The Pastures of Heaven I have selected text from a note Molly Morgan wrote in chapter 5 discussing mans desire to make an impression that would be remembered after his passing. The characters struggle is shown in a lighthearted story through a fairytale narrative. 

“After the bare requisites to living and reproducing, man wants most to leave some record of him, a proof, perhaps, that he really existed. He leaves his proof on wood, on stone or on the lives of other people. This deep desire exists in everyone, from the boy who writes dirty words in a public toilet to the Buddha who etches his image in the race mind. Life is so unreal. I think that we seriously doubt that we exist and go about trying to prove that we do”  

I hope you enjoy the story.

Step 2 - Drafting my screenplay

Step 3 - Logline:
