my sneak peek.

Some of you have read this (Some = Marissa.), but for those of you who haven’t, it is a sneak peek into the full-length film I am writing, called FREDDIE. It’s a rather short bit of the script, but I’d like to keep most of it a secret while obtaining feedback … and maybe you’ll enjoy it! ๐Ÿ™‚

FREDDIE carefully places the notebook back behind the bookshelf, grabs a baseball cap and the shovel, and quietly creeps to the stairs. She quietly crawls up them, careful not to bang the shovel around. She risks a look around the corner and into the eating room, sees her mother and sister sitting down at the table, laughing; she runs out the door.

FREDDIE walks about twenty feet into her backyard to a tree. Camera is above her, looking down, and she grins. Camera is behind her head, and a figure jumps down lightly from the tree. GREGORY smiles at FREDDIE, takes her hand, and they run around the side of the house to the street. He also has a shovel in his hand and a pack on his back. They walk down the street and arrive at an entrance to a forest, where GREGORY bows her in. They walk along in the brush for a minute or two, and as they arrive at a tree stump, he opens his pack.

He pulls out a notebook, already flipped to a map. He points to something on it, not seen by the camera, and they walk along to a tree. Behind the tree is a โ€œQโ€ etched out in the dirt. FREDDIE looks at GREGORY with a quizzical look.

GREGORY: I always thought โ€œXโ€ was too obvious.

FREDDIE laughs and together they dig. They are only digging for a few moments when heard is a dull knock as shovel hits plastic. FREDDIE looks at GREGORY oddly once more.

GREGORY: I knew youโ€™d be tired from your dig this afternoon. Didnโ€™t want to bury it too deep.

FREDDIE smiles at him and pats his hand. Together they bend down and lift up a small Tupperware container. It is transparent, and inside of it we see a small black box. FREDDIE opens the lid of the Tupperware and stares at the box in curiosity and flattery.ย  Gregory smiles once more.

GREGORY: Open it.

FREDDIE opens the box and gently lifts out a necklace. Camera zooms in to see that it is a pure silver rose. FREDDIE smiles weakly (with a tear down her cheek), and kisses GREGORY on the face.

GREGORY: (unsure, since she shed a tear) The rose symbolizes unconscious beauty.

They embrace at the lips.


Alright, hope you liked that. Thoughts and whatever below! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love how Freddie doesn’t say a word. Who is playing who? Have you started filming? I want to know more of this!

    • Freddie’s character doesn’t talk at all. ๐Ÿ™‚ I suppose I should’ve explained that, haha.

      Haven’t decided who is playing who, although I have ideas in mind.

      Filming starts in the summer.

      You’ll find out more when more progress has been made! ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you’re interested!
