I have been on Facebook quite a bit over the past few days. I think it’s lovely to have friends you can reach out to over the web. There are so many possibilities for new friendships and as a result, new story ideas.
One of my friends recently reconnected with a fellow on Facebook she had dated in high school. They have been dating for 3 months and he just proposed.
She’s divorced and he’s a widow; now she is in love and must decide if she wants to become a stepmother to his two children.
As an exercise:
If you were going to use Facebook as a way to create a story situation for a new script, what would it be? Would it be a comedy, drama or horror? Is Facebook a major part of the plot or something in the background? Does your film take a positive or negative stance about social networking?
