Hey guys, this is going to be the first ever Movie maker Monday on this page. What I’ll be doing is telling you guys about an idea for a movie/book that I’ve had over the years and we’ll just have a look at the plot, the characters and anything else I want to share with you.
Without further or do, let’s dive straight in to my idea.
The title I gave this draft was ‘Rise’ and it’s given that name because of the story it tells. The plot of this idea was that there would be an uprising from the poor that would lead to chaos throughout the city. We would be seeing a story through two different men’s eyes; one of them would be a very poor individual who lived in the streets and the other was a rich prince who lived in a castle.
Because I’m obsessed with history and I love Game of Thrones, the setting would be medieval but I never wanted to be specific on a date because I liked to leave that open to interpretation. The poorer of the two men would have a job at a brothel which barely paid enough for him to eat that week, whilst the richer man would have no trouble with money and trained to become a famous warrior every day in the courtyards at the castle.
I never got as far as naming the places where all this took place but I did name a few of the people. The poor guy was named Charlie and the rich one was named Henry. Charlie was a guy of average height and didn’t really look like anything special; he had small green eyes with short dirty blonde hair, the one thing Charlie did have going for him was that he was exceedingly strong for someone who definitely didn’t look it. Henry was to be Charlie’s better in every way; he was very tall and had fantastic definition in his muscles. He too had dirty blonde hair but it was much longer, almost shoulder length and it was complemented by his big blue eyes. (Look, I’m not saying people with blue eyes are better than people with green ones but….I have blue eyes sooooo….)
During Charlie’s chapters we would follow his amazing story of revenge and desire. Charlie’s storyline would mainly consist of him getting sick of the way the rich treat everyone below them and he wants to put a stop to it. He tries to rally as many of the poor as he can and leads them on a journey there is no going back from.
Henry’s early chapters would consist of him being a pompous pr*ck on his horse, training himself in the arts of combat. When he learns of this uprising, he thinks that it’s all a big joke to be honest and that he could deal with the poor with only fifty decent soldiers. However, when he sees the severity of everything that’s going on around him, he has a serious change in personality and becomes a true leader.
I really enjoy the idea of following these very different people that want to do very different things but will eventually find themselves in the same place. But what’s a good story without a twist eh? Without wanting to spoil too much (who knows I may write this one day?) the civil war doesn’t happen because a deal is made between the Queen and Charlie. This would lead in to three novels or a movie trilogy because at the start of the second movie/book the poor would hate Charlie and everything he stands for.
Honestly, I regret never really writing this and if you guys like the rough ideas I have then let me know because I really like the ideas I have so far.
Thanks for reading my first ever Movie maker Monday guys!
