While entering my pitch video (NexTV 2019 516002 402 003) for "Welcome to Babylon" into the "NexTV Writing & Pitch Competition," the application form asked for a "description," so I wrote the following: 

A suicidal teen wants to end her life in a blaze of glory by leaping off the Hollywood sign, when she sees an abandoned mansion nearby and enters it, only to be confronted by the angry ghost of a long-forgotten horror actor who was murdered in his mansion decades ago and is now determined to take possession of her physical body in order to "walk among the living" once again and find the fame and glory that had eluded him in his prior life. 

1-PAGE SYNOPSIS

- Angela enters the mansion known as Babylon West, supposedly inhabited by a long-forgotten actor.

 

- Babylon West is a former hotel that was Emerson Farrell's answer to his rival - the actress Nazimova - and her hedonistic "Garden of Eden."

  

- Urban legend has it that it was built on an ancient burial ground, which is why it is like a portal into other realms.  Throughout the movie, we assumed it was a human burial ground, but when Angela accidentally enters a mausoleum, she learns that it was a burial ground for the "alien star gods," who supposedly have the potential to live forever.

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.
