Every good movie starts with a script, and every good script tells a riveting story. Long before the actors are chosen and the filming starts, a writer sits down, crafts that story, and submits it for consideration by the producers, directors, and other creative talents in the film industry. It can take a long time. A script may spend years making the rounds before getting the elusive Hollywood “green light.”
If it ever does. Some of the greatest movies ever written are ones that we may never see on the screen.
That’s a shame. That’s a loss for all of us who love movies.
And that’s why Tales2Film exists.
Tales2Film finds the best of those not-yet-produced* screenplays and brings them to you just as the writer envisaged them. Each of the tales in this series has been converted by the script’s author from the arcane shorthand of screenplay format into familiar prose, a process called “novelization.”
But these Movie Length Tales™ are not novels, or even novellas. They’re written movies.
Like the screenplays they come from, each is presented in real time, written in the present tense to allow you to “see” the movie’s scenes in your mind’s eye as if they were unfolding on a theater’s screen before you. And at the same rate, too — you can read one in about the same time as you’d spend watching the movie.
Try one. You’ll see.
Literally. You’ll see the movie.
