The Inner Circle
« on: November 08, 2013, 06:18:41 PM »
Hey all,

Just wanting to run something by you guys to see what your thoughts are with respect to having a group of screenwriting friends that you can use as a bouncing board for ideas.

I have a few outlines/synopsis prepared and they do need further development and was wondering if it would be advantageous to have 5 or 6 trusted screenwriting friend that could form a group and use one another as a bouncing board for ideas, themes etc during the development process.

These people would have to be totally trusted, as ideas will be bouncing in both directions and so that no one would ever contemplate stealing anyone's ideas, rather just giving their thoughts on the direction things should take.

Why did I title this "Inner Circle" because it was a term used by Adolph Hitler with respect to the people he trusted. The people in his Inner Circle.

I really feel an association like this would be an amazing support for screenwriters who are aspiring to take things to a high level and feel this connection can be undertaken via emails.

Have any of you guys undertaken anything like this before as I would love to hear your thoughts on whether this would work or not.

Regards Alex

Funny enough I am working on a concept I really like and wouldn't want to share publicly . Perhaps that's a bit over kill but if you feel you have a winning idea why not give it the best shot, until you find out it's not...sigh.

So, I would be happy to be part of a secure group to help bounce ideas that the writers don't want to share publicly.

Mind you I have to say these would generally be unusual as most things I would be happy to put forward for the usual beating up :-)

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the post... You are in mate... I really trust your judgement...

I feel once we have a handful or associates we trust then we can start picking one another's brains.

I have several themes I would like to forward to our group and may kick it of then.

My thoughts are we all have our own ideas and any assistance to the Inner Circle will be discreet and the resulting suggestion will remain the ownership of the individual that put the proposal forward.

Regards Alex

Sounds like a solid plan - only wish I had some good ideas to bounce of others. In saying that, I would be happy to join the group, if you want me? I like the look of the group other than the Irish fellow... ;D

It also be good to meet up again Alex, we could discuss some of these ideas in person if you like?

So am I in? What's the secret handshake? ;D

Hey Alex

Waaayyy too many English men... I can tell you from experience they can't be trusted... haven't you seen Braveheart  ;D especially those with fake Australian accents  ;D

Maybe just Bill cuz he supports a good soccer team that won't get relegated this season ;D

Hands up who still wants me in the inner circle

Damn Mark.

The concept for a feature I am considering is based on a talented ManU player (Tony Cannelloni) and how he aspires to make the team the best in the world at the detriment of Liverpool.

The first problem you have is finding a talented Man U player... if you do find one I suggest an Irish sniper who shoots him in the leg, while You'll Never Walk Alone plays over.  ;D ;D

I love this inner circle bouncing ideas stuff   ;D ;D ;D
