Need EVERYONE's help!

Postby JimChangedMe » Thu Dec 15, 2011 12:36 am

Yello friends!

Few may know that I plan on becoming an actor in a near future. Only thing is, I barely have any ideas to bring to California with me at the moment. So I need anyone's help to suggest film ideas that YOU feel would either spark interest or just sound good personally. I'm not COMPLETELY unprepared. I have a few screenplays I've made:

"The Ripper" - A young detective delves into the past history of the infamous "Jack the Ripper" in order to deduce his true identity

"Time Runner: Author of Counter Earth" - On December 21st of the year 2012, the first time traveler heads back to the beginning of time itself. After a terrifying disruption, he travels back to the future only to find himself in a world the flip opposite of his own; and only a mysterious stranger called "Time Runner" can help him get back home

"The Naked Idol: 007" - MI6 Agent and Commander James Bond battles a former Italian assassin who is set to kill off each justice system with a cold-hearted plan of vengeance

"The Batman" - Bruce Wayne goes head to head with Hugo Strange and The Riddler in his first year of being Gotham City's Caped Crusader

"2B or Not 2B?" - A recently married couple and the ghost of a forgotten children's poet wage a hilarious war for the claims to a perfect apartment

"Wheels on the Bus" - A group of elementary school kids try to survive a wacky replacement bus driver after the original disappears on vacation


So yeah, if you guys have any ideas or suggestions, PLEASE let me know!

Thanks so much!,

Did you took any acting lessions?

My sugestion, if you wanna be an actor is to get some acting lessions and go to many castings, try to build up experience.

Yeah, I took a LOT of lessons and classes. I also studied movies and plays over and over and over again. I've done this for a long time so it's not anything new, really.

I like the Wheels on the Bus idea

maybe it's because I've been a lifeguard
and we always sing that for the Baby Class

Very Familiar tune and it could be really fun
funny and it's a familliar thing to most people
(general public) especially those of us who
can't afford cars.

lol....it reminds me of Otto from the Simpsons......... :D
Good luck in your endeavours :D i'm sorry i can't offer any advice though, i have absolutely no idea how things work in the USA.....I'd imagine the best thing would be to get an agent first though.........then they do the hard word for you.....they have all the contacts.

It's really one of the quietest places in all of the United States hahaha and that's really not an exagerration. There isn't much to do and it's a mix of country people and city people who just can't get along. I'm from the City side so it's a lot more lively and friendly. Trust me, Mid-West is just not the best place of all the US :)

I had tons of fun when I was writing out "Wheels on the Bus". Mainly because the replacement bus driver is so crazy and wacky that he is very unpredictable. I could only think of Jim throughout the entire process :D

There are tons of actors in this world. I guess Jim is an inspiration to you but why when there is so many actors.

I just want to know why Jim stands out to you?

Well, the answer to that really goes along with my username; he changed me. I have a better view on life itself, not just on my future. He's the father I've never had, in a weird sort of way. I just feel something so much greater watching him perform or do interviews. Sure other people have influenced me as well, but Jim has been the key inspiration of it all
