I've ended up having the voiceover taper off rather than end abruptly and I'm halfway through the first draft, so I guess I'm committed to this thing, Screenplay 3, no working title, eight pages produced tonight adding a major plot development, wishing I felt better about it but remembering it's only a first draft, this after having abandoned two earlier attempts, each thirty or forty pages, trashed because of the lack of an outline and a lack of confidence about the material.
Have one creep up behind the vo and cover its mouth.
That would actually make for an interesting screenplay. We would be introduced to the characters only to have them all collapse ten minutes later. Then we'd go back to the beginning and our characters would start out again, only this time they'd be different and again the same thing would happen. Collapse. And on and on.
But then what?
Cool idea. I may pay it the ultimate compliment of stealing it.
