Monkeys writing scripts

Alright, it has been 1.5 months since I put those Monkeys to work on typewriters, lets see what they managed to churn out...

"dheyfirk" : Nah, thats just gibberish.
"tuytijf" : Nah, thats just gibberish.
"doeph" : Nah, thats just gibberish.
"Mediacorp Dramas" : Nah, thats just gibberish.
"iryhsdk" : Nah, thats just gibberish.
"Frank" : Woo, something coherent!

And thats the story of how a short film titled "Frank" is borned.

Scripting writing in Singapore is fun! As fun as tipping 12 tons of shit on your head. (Woohoo you wanna balloon?) We have no damn locations locally!! Every indie and their grandma's script had to take place in one of the two places: 1) A House. Which happens to be the script writer's house. 2) Forest. Ahhh convenient mother nature! Why, wouldn't every city deweller have to pass through an abandoned forest everyday FOR NO APPARANT REASON? NO??? YOU WANNA BALLOON??

And working with peanuts sux. Over 6 weeks "Frank" has undergo more plastic surgery than a plastic blown up doll. A typical conversations with the rest of the monkeys goes...

Monkey #1: ...and he walks into a hospital.
Monkey #2: We can't do that location.

Monkey #1: I mean he walks into a restaurant.
Monkey #2: We can't do that location.

Monkey #1: I mean the toilet.
Monkey #2: We can't do that location.

Monkey #1: I mean an abandoned forest for no reason whatsoever.
Monkey #2: Exccccellent.
