    Those of you who aren't frequently in the chat, I got bored and decided to work on a film concept.

    That's the gist of the first 45 minutes or so of the film. I plan to continue writing whenever boredom strikes again.

    Carry on.

    Have you seen District 9 yet? It's similar to this and quite good.

    EDIT: Whoops, I meant this style.

    I remember a horror movie almost exactly the same with the camera and everything. Exactly the same except it was in an apartment (no marriage) and all the people were stuck in it. It was made in some other country.

    That's REC. It was a spanish film and one of the inspirations for this writing.

    It was remade in America under the name Quarantine.

    Makes me think of Cloverfield. But it's pretty cool!

    It's nice, but I wouldn't call it "win" at all to be honest. I had a film idea once myself and if I got off my lazy ass I'd probably write a little script or at the very least make a 5-page long screenplay excerpt.

    My idea is Jaws... but instead of a shark it's a loan shark and instead of Amity Island that he's terrorizing, it's New York instead. It'll make millions.

    The film now follows 2 Film Professionals that were paid to film the wedding and the events that follow. Because the cameramen know nothing of anyone at the wedding, they don't differ much from the original idea of distant friends. The "Film Professional" trait now makes the "HD" look of the film believable, as a normal group of friends are likely to not have one, thus making the film seem lower quality.

    Other characters have been thought up, such as the guy-you-all-know that has too much to drink at a wedding. This character would likely be the fall guy and display the first attack and zombification, replacing the Security Guard in the earlier write-up.

    Since it wasn't too defined of a location in the early writing, the Wedding Reception takes place at a Community Center down the road from the church. This allows for other locations within the Community Center to make critical story moments. The swimming pool may be referred to by some startled guests as a carrier of the sickness. Like a bandaid in a pool or the urban legend of impregnating sperm in the water, the sickness may be believed to have been spread through an ill-informed swimmer.

    One scene I thought up would take place during the actual Wedding, perhaps during the exchanging of vows or any other vital moment. Not sure yet. It would involve a guest hacking into a coughing fit, eventually leaving the room - still coughing - with a handkerchief over his face, with a few guests overheard, commenting on blood on the handkerchief. This guest would likely return later as a pure zombification of himself, and may or may not have relations to Patient Zero.

    Another scene would take place during the drive to the Reception. Earlier, it was written as a scene involving several detours, but somewhat by peer review, that's been changed to a Police Barricade surrounding a gruesome scene. Not much would be shown except for a group of citizens hugging around the Police Line and looking onward at the unknown scene. This causes the two cameramen to be late to the Reception and already have missed some of the Guests that left due to an illness.

    Be advised that nothing is set in stone yet, and things will change as time goes on.

    "Film Professional" trait? What's their strength?
