What's up people? The Synopsis - as promised

Pardon me if it's a little raw - am taking the advice someone sent and trying to say as little as possible

SYNOPSIS
Wande borrows a high end phone from his girlfriend (Vivica) to impress his new mistress (Bisi). She is impressed - a little too impressed and a 'naughty' video gets recorded on the phone. and then accidentally the phone gets sent back to Vivica with the video still on it! Now Wande has one hour to chase that phone down and delete that video before it enters Vivica's hands! And against all odds, somewhere along the way, he manages to find the true meaning of the term 'growing up'...


oKAY - that's all I got for now - on a side note - just finished the first draft polish - the script is officially done! BELLS! WHISTLES! CYMBALS! where the hell is my flute?

hey, thanks for the heads up - i had no idea Nollywood was doing the 'Slapping Tunde' thing, LOL. and to think I had a rough first draft of DB back in 2004

Any help with titles will be vastly appreciated, thouhg I will admit, I still LOVE Deleting Bisi - but i'll also admit I'm in no position to be objective, I've had it in the back of my head for four years!

Know what? Whoever gives me a TRULY great title? I'll use your name in the movie - use any good line you can give me - AND send you a few pages as an exclusive peek (don't take it the wrong way, am not on an ego trip - would love to send you cash, but am sinking a lotta cash into making sure this film makes 'Letters' look like a student demo)

Till I post again - THANK YOU as always

hey, how come Atlakos hasn't hollered at me yet? Come to think of it, haven't seen her on the board recently either...

anyhow, am off to soak my arthritic knuckles - writing ain't easy! LOL

take care all

Like Peculiar said, lets wait for folks who know lierature to suggest a good if not better title for you. However, i would like to know who you have in mind to play the lead roles.

becos i tried to pm you, but you havent set it up. Ofcourse i want to holler back, i been trying to holla, trust.sweat: I am here strong and live, They cant hold me down - shoooo!! i just brush them off ya shoulders and keep moving sweat: Holla. Thanks for the compliment and i have read all your threads, you got my support. i support all those with a good cause to bring some shine to our ppl. You did well with letters and i will keep promoting to the best of my ability, i introduced it to two american friends who have never watched nigerian movies b4 and they loved it they asking for more. If you going to start off someone who has never seen a nollywood movie b4 and try to get them into this whole movie watching thing, this movie is an example of it. By the way why was the lighting so bright insome scenes as i previously mentioned, it almost blinded me. Was it ya equipments or something? Abeg upgrade after yall recoup yall monies back. sweat: and you know you will. You guys are doing a good thing we are proud of you, and support your cause, hopefully other directors will follow suit and give us unpredictable nice scripts like you did.

ps: i will give you a few titles

My brother you will go far in this industry , You are very positivegrinning:grinning:

I like you keep on doing your thing







Alright, here goes nothing - I was sorely tempted not to reply, but I just HAD to - can't let y;all have all the fun LOL! anyway first off, I have to say that my pride in my country sometimes is at war with the fact that I deeply hurt at a lot i see wrong with my country - so when i get logged as the official 'Nollywood' representative here? my first response is to say 'For goodness sake, don't call me that! Don't stick that label on me - I've worked too hard to avoid it' - and then I just feel - conflicted...

Enough with the grammer. As to those who spotted inconsistencies in and around the story, my sincere thanks - you were so engrossed you spotted and noted those for future reference? and I try my best never to sound defensive but you do realize that in the film making process, the script is not really the cast in stone blue print every one thinks it is - I wish it was, but it isnt - sadly

it's more like a travel guide. we now know the destination - getting there might take a totally different path. in short there were entire scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor - put those scenes back? and logic is restored to the universe. but due to several reasons; running time, technical problems (yeah we stll grapple with the technicalities and sometimes the filmmaking deities just HATE us) one or two continuity gaffes etc we have to leace some stuff out

try explaining the sudden day to night jump in Micheal Bay's 'Transformers', the second time Bumblebee drives off - LOL. I heard Alex Kurtzman is pissed bout the 3 scenes that were cu tout of that gap (he and Roberto Orci wrote the screenplay)

But all the same - I have always been grateful to anyway who cares enough to speak what he or she feels on any topic. Thanks all for keeping us filmmakers on our toes

P.S
Y'all REALLY don't like the title 'Deleting Bisi' that much? LOL I happen to think it's pretty cool PLUS Idumota HATES that title.

Thanks Everyone

Victor Sanchez Aghahowa

P.P.S

Maybe I'll post a rough synopsis and have you guys pitch me alternate titles? any takers?

Slapping Tunde is just what we want to do (where is he sef? His head no dey house)... There is also Slapping Paj, Slapping FM, Slapping Meddeen, Slapping Abike and biting Kikis.... But I digress....

I actually think although the title might not sit well with some people, the content of the movie would nullify any initial feelings towards the title...

I saw a movie called "No Country For Old Men"... This is one of the most amazing cinematic accomplishment I have ever watched. I went to see it 3 times, back to back to back days! But the title is a little odd. And even after watching the movie, the title does not immediately make any more sense. But the movie was so good, it is now simply referred to as "No Country".... And everyone, that's seen it, and liked it, know exactly what you are talking about and lights up hearing those words placed together "no", "country",

The title is important, but not as important as the story and it's execution.

My $0.02 and I'm all out of change.....

I am not really sure whether it was a good move to have posted the syno of a script that is still in it's first draft,Mr Aghahowa.
You better start praying that idumota boys do not hijack it and bring out a homvie with the same concept in the coming few weeks.These guys don't write scripts in many drafts,you know.

As for the title,it sounds ok to me.It is relevant to the concept of the story.

Ahhhh! :love004:
Did I tell you that I like you? I really like you. You are so refreshing. Wonderful. Your attitude just makes me so happy this morning. Alright, you know, in context, your title does not seem half bad now. I will still rack my brains for a different title, but with a decent synopsis to market the movie with, you may be on to something. Gimme a while, I will go think about it and come back.

One more thing, you may want to rethink the name vivica? So I just need to ask you as a writer this question : With the abundance of sexy yoruba name,s hausa names, igbo names, calabar names, Tiv names - you get my drift, why do you have to go with Vivica? Has anyone done a study to show that it is preferred by the audience? Abeg, explain this to a sista.

As for Vince's concern about unscrupulous marketers stealing your idea, that is a legitimate concern. But you are in the industry, so I hope you had thot of it before posting your synopsis here. Based on a recent posting by The Force (new member), you really gotta fear those marketers. But even if they copy it, I am pretty sure that they cannot deliver like you will. We are rooting for you. Please make us proud. I WILL BE BACK!!

I second sis Funmo's opinion on the name "Vivica", SIR!sweat:
Considering the fact that the other names are Nigerian......consistency thoughout might not be a bad idea, me thinks! :fam14:
