Movie Maker Monday #2

Last weeks first ever Movie Maker Monday seemed to go down quite well so i’m going to give you guys another one.

This weeks idea is a little less fleshed out but there is a bit more story for me to tell.

‘You are what I say you are’:

This is a story about a teenage boy who’s friendships are built upon the lies he has told them to make himself sound more appealing but then it all goes downhill, or does it? There are many hidden supernatural elements to this story which come to play towards the very end, when the main character finds out he has the power to be what he always wanted to be, a vampire.

The main characters name is Will and he’s a fairly tall guy with dark hair and mesmerising blue eyes. The Story would begin with Will walking around school like he is the most untouchable guy in the world, as an audience we would pick up on all the lies he was telling and we would be able to tell that these people don’t actually like Will, but they like the person Will is pretending to be.

As the story progresses, Will’s best friend passes away and he is left with no one he can truly be himself with and then things start go from bad to worse for Will. Someone makes up a vile rumour that Will said he never even liked his friend who died and people believe it and instantly turn on him without giving him a chance to respond and own up to all his lies and regret.Will goes from being the most popular kid in the school to being worried who he’s going to walk in to around the corner.

Before his best friend died, Will and him always felt like they were not meant for this time and place, they knew deep in their hearts that they were on this earth for a greater purpose but they could never find their destiny. Whatever darkness that was inside Will was evened out by how light and loving his best friend was, that was there power, together they were stronger. They both always knew how strong they were as a pair but could never really find a way to use there strength.

One day in school Will makes friends with a girl called Taliyah and they become really close, she opens up to him about this world just beyond our vision and that she is something called a ‘Psychic’ and she has these crazy abilities that range from talking to the dead, reading minds and controlling the weather. At first Will thinks it’s all a joke but as he is with Taliyah more and more he realises she’s telling the truth and that this is his purpose, to help Taliyah. However, something always bothered Will because he never truly understood why she chose him to be friends with and to tell all of her secrets to, until one day she tells Will why she stays so close to him, it’s to protect him because he has the blood and the heritage to become a Vampire.

I always wanted the act of becoming a Vampire to be a little different in this story, the way it works is you have to have a certain blood type and you have to have ancestors from the first Vampire family. Then if you decide it, you drink your own blood and kill yourself to turn in to a Vampire.

At first Will thinks Taliyah’s gone mad but then he realises that it feels right, he’s never felt like he truly knew who he was and that’s why he always told all of these lies to seem cool, he was trying to figure out who he was.

The way this first book/movie would end is kind of crazy. Will would be walking through the woods towards Taliyah’s house one evening when suddenly his dead best friend runs at him from the shadows and screams at him “RUN! They are coming!” but Will is completely confused how his friend is alive and why he has blood gushing from his neck. His best friend shakes him and says “WILL! I found out the truth! We have to run, I’ll explain on the way!”

I really enjoy this story because there is so much depth to Will and I connect with him on a truly personal level. Adding the supernatural elements gave me so many different options and added some excitement and mystery. I can definitely see me self writing this story about  Will some day because I have too much story here to never do anything with it. Also, I never gave Will’s best friend a name so I’m sorry if it was a little tedious reading the words ‘best friend over and over again.

What do you guys think of the idea?

Thanks for reading guys.




Movie Maker Monday #1

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!
