“A Thousand Words” Concept Poster
In the spirit and excitement of the wonderful “Ripper” Concept Posters provided by Megan Koop, I wanted to share another concept poster that was created years ago and I think has been long forgotten.
“A Thousand Words” is what I consider “my baby.” It won the Miami International Film Festival Screenwriting Contest back in 2011 when I was only months removed from Graduate School. It started out as a short story that has evolved I believe unlike any of my previous works to date over a course of a decade. I actually remember how I came up with the concept and plot for the story.
During my days as an Undergrad student at Florida International University in Miami, Florida, I -like many other Miami residents my age- continued to live at home while working and studying. I’m sure many of you may knock that. Hell, so did I when I was living it. But looking back: living rent-free, free food, laundry facility walking adjacent and no quarters required.
But I digress.
One day as I was organizing my room (which an OCD person like me was doing regularly) and came across some old photos from my High School days. There was a big group shot with me standing on one end and on the other end was my girlfriend at the time whom I hadn’t even been formally introduced to until my second year of college.
A picture is worth…
