I have a film idea… but I don’t know how to go about to get it produced. I can see it all in my mind, and perhaps I should write it out scene for scene.
Essentially, it is the Rosary.
The opening shot pans on some nuns as they begin the Apostles Creed, then on to the Our Father, and the Hail Mary’s, when the First Joyous Mystery is announced the shot fades from the sisters to Mary pray praying moments before Gabriel approaches. While music is played in the shot the scene is acted out as it was. The scene lasts as long as it would take to say the ten Hail Mary’s, Glory Be, and Fatima Prayer, and then the shot fades to The Visitation. It is acted out as it was for as long as it would be to go through that decade, and on to complete The Joyous Mysteries. Then on to the Luminous Mysteries, The Sorrowful Mysteries and the Glorious Mysteries. The scene fades back to the sisters as they finish up with the Hail Holy Queen, closing credits, yadda yadda yadda…
More of a visual meditation. 20 decades and about a runtime of 60 plus minutes. I can see it beautiful in my mind… slick sets and heartful acting, but again, don’t know how to get something like this produced. At this point, I would be pleased to say the idea would be public domain if somebody has the resources to run with it. I just hope it’s not butchered from the visuals in my minds eye.
Well, what do you think?
