Well here we go, without giving too much away, and with my original plans intended to be a mini-series and with many changes over writing the story. I bring to you now, the virtual film adaption of 'My Own' creation upon the beginnings of Superman.
Now, don't expect from it the full on 'look, a man can fly'
in this adaption. This is the story of the beginning, on Krypton. The storyline we seldom see in films and television of the character, but given a few twists of my own ideas in there.
Beginning with what happened to lead Krypton become the Icy world we know of, to the loyalty tested between Jor-El and his friend General Zod. Two men whose paths are on course for a showdown that will result in the world we know, changing....Destruction. Rise & Fall of Power. Action. Phantom Zone. Love. Death. Passion. Families Torn Apart. Sacrifices. And much more.....This is where a hero begins....
This is where Legends are born....
This is where the world we know as Superman....
I am proud to say, that a 1st draft of this virtual movie has been written
. Took me several months and lots of hard work, many changes as I wrote it and more. Containing 117 Pages (with credits etc).
Even though wasn't commissioned, this has been in my mind for a while and was something I wanted to have a go at writing even if it isn't accepted just for that experience, but hopefully will be liked. The first full movie type script I have worked on and completed.
It will, I still feel, require someone with much more experience and a good sense of adaption to see where it can be improved and worked upon more. I know it isn't perfect, but the basis of the storyline is there to work from. Their are still parts I am also unsure of myself, but can be worked out I believe with notes from someone else.
