One of the first assignments in my online screenwriting class is to develop a two-sentence pitch of a short film. Class members are to discuss, respond and ultimately “red light” or “green light” the project. Surely you know mine – I mean, why not test the waters (albeit among a demo that drinks beer for breakfast and watches “Real World?”)
So here was my pitch: A good, natured married mom realizes her marriage has lost some of its oomph. So she gives her husband a very special 40th birthday gift – sex everyday for a year. Sweet, to the point, concise. What’s not to like? Apparently everything.
