The Truth of the Grotesque

The Truth of the Grotesque

I wanted 3 things from this project. 

  1. To force myself to finish a project I don't have to finish. 
  2. To become a better storyteller
  3. To hang out with James Franco. 

I'm pretty happy to say that I accomplished 1 and 2 already, and that's a pretty awesome feeling. 

So let's get started with my project. 

Step 1: Selecting Your Text

I chose Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson. I felt I had to do this one because I grew up in a small farm town in Ohio, and when you can relate so well to a subject you should probably write about. 

Step 2: Draft Your Screenplay

Lates draft:

Step 3: Logline

A writer from a small town in Ohio digs deep inside himself to write about the truths of life that are so beautiful they will actually turn people grotesque. He fights against becoming a grotesque himself and the only thing that can save him is the youth that lives inside him.
