LOGLINE

WEDNESDAY, 01/16/19 - 8:27 AM - Prior to this moment, all I knew was that "The Ability to See" would be a horror movie.  I had no storyline until this morning, while working on the "101" version of my feature film "Joy and the Mountain Blue."  I did some research on the symbolic meaning of trees, graves, and cemeteries, and somewhere along the way came across a YouTube video with the very long title "Donald Trump - RED DAWN is Here and America better PREPARE! The Chinese Takeover (2019-2020)."  This video inspired the basic logline:  

In this science-fiction horror-suspense feature film, an "American" teen has visions about "China" taking over the "United States," but no one believes her because a historic peace-treaty is about to be enacted.  But then it happens, and this girl must somehow "see" the future and determine how the "United States" is going to defend itself against a "Russian-Chinese" invasion...

1-PAGE SYNOPSIS

In the aftermath of a "Donald Trump" presidency, "China" retaliates against "American interference" in its goal of uniting Taiwan with the mainland and its affairs in general.  Wanting to eliminate the "American" menace once and for all, "China" launches a "Pearl Harbor" style attack on the "U.S. mainland."

REVISED:  THURSDAY, 02/07/19 - 4:35 PM - 41-031 WAILEA ST. - WAIMANALO, HAWAII

OBJECTIVES:  As with all of our projects, our goal is to: 

- EDUCATE: 

- Teach history and give our audiences some background into why things are the way they are. 

- Debunk the myths, hoaxes, and "fake news."

 

- INSPIRE:  We hope to create a sense of wonder to inspire a new generation of Americans to take action and do the right things.  Because our show's supporting characters is a dreamer who aspires to greatness, our audiences can follow their respective paths.

 

- OUR ACTIONS DEFINE OUR CHARACTER:  We need to show our audiences what road one has to travel in order to achieve our lifelong dreams.  Nothing is promised or guaranteed.  Nothing is free.  One has to suffer some pain to elevate one's life to the next level.

 

- CALL TO ADVENTURE:  When we are personally challenged by an evil person or called out by evil events (criminal activity, war, etc.) occurring within our community, we need to answer, or the evil will eventually reach us after it destroys our neighbors.
