Some initial feedback from Fresh Voices on my script,
MINE EYES, GLORY GLORY.
... You portray small-town life well in this and paint a very vivid picture of a boring life that needs something to fixate on. Tom and Mary are believable characters and I liked their dialogue – it flows very naturally on the page.
This is a perfect film to do for festivals on a low/no budget. It could easily be done in a town anywhere in the US, which is exactly what gives the film its charm. Make sure that you can’t identify where the film is taking place – the audience needs to believe that this could represent their hometown as much as anywhere else. It makes it more accessible for a broad audience, and when the film travels on the festival circuit, the non-descript setting will be an advantage.
Overall, this is a fun short script that could be easily made and easy crowd pleaser on the festival circuit.
