Some Of The Reasons I Want To Make Films

I Thought Before People Supported Me On My “White Jade” Kickstarter Project, They Should Know A Bit About My Taste In Film… In Particular… Sci Fi

Star Wars

(The Reason I Became A Filmmaker)

The Empire Strikes Back

(One Of My Two Favorite Films (The Original Being The Other) And Best Sequel)

But More Than That, Darth Vader Is My All Time Favorite Villain

Though I Wasn’t A Huge “Return Of The Jedi” Fan, I Did Feel It Was Luke’s Best Film

(This Is For The Jedi Fans)

Moving On…

Blade Runner

Blade Runner Is A Masterpiece

(Another Great Villain… Another Great Scene)

TRON

Ahead Of It’s Time… Extremely Impactive On Me

TRON: Legacy

I Loved The Second One Too

The Common Thread… Jeff Bridges, And Light Cycles

But They Were Much More Than That

The Matrix

The Original Was Amazing… Game Changing

The Matrix: Reloaded

Though I Did Not Care For The Other Matrix Films All That Much, This Scene Is Amazing

Crossing Over To Fantasy…

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Simply Amazing

Aliens

Brilliant

Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan

The Best Star Trek Film… Another Great Villian

Highlander

Great Film

The Terminator

Brilliant Concept, And Villain

Avatar

Beautiful/Great Film

That’s All For Now

EXT. OVERHEAD SHOT OF NEW TOKYO – NIGHT

TITLE – White Jade

TITLE – One Hour Earlier

INT. NEW TOKYO POLICE DEPARTMENT’S SECRET QUESTIONING FACILITY – HALLWAY – NIGHT

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE, a six-foot plus, fairly rugged looking Caucasian, in his mid to late thirties, walks with the head of the facility.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Okay… What do we got…

 

FACILITY HEAD

We’ve got a young Asian Girl, by the

name of Nayoko…

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Nayoko what…

FACILITY HEAD

She won’t give us her last name, and

her prints aren’t on file…

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Okay…

FACILITY HEAD

She turned herself in about an hour

ago…

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Yeah…

FACILITY HEAD

She claims to be responsible for the

Asano Eight Building’s destruction

earlier today…

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

What… One girl?!

FACILITY HEAD

No, she had some hired help…

3

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Okay…

FACILITY HEAD

She says she was trying to rescue

her father from Asano, who

she claims had kidnapped him…

TITLE – The Red Light Room

TITLE – The Present

INT. THE RED LIGHT ROOM – (THE PRESENT)

Nayoko sits legs crossed, head down, in a corner of the room.

Detective Ben Wayne sits about thirty feet away in one of two chairs that are at a table.

NAYOKO

Let me start from the beginning…

INT. YAMAGATA’S HIDEOUT – DAY (EARLIER THAT DAY)

A dark corridor lit only by thin beams of blue light.

TITLE – Earlier that day

TITLE – Yamagata’s Hideout – A New Tokyo Mafioso High Arch

Nayoko enters the corridor, wearing a hooded cloak.

AKI, a man in white and silver samurai armor, appears from around a corner to block her way.

Nayoko continues, as if to walk right through him.

Aki draws forth two swords from his back.

SWOOM!!

                             AKI

Going somewhere?

He swings the blades down upon her, but she avoids the blow, and so they strike the ground instead.

CHHIINNGGG!!!

4

She disarms him, knocking the swords to the ground.

KLANKKK!!

She knocks him down, and his armor makes a loud…

CLANNG!!

…as he hits the ground.

AKI

Ummmpphhh!!

She picks up both of his swords, and stands above him.

AKI

Aahhh!!

She thrusts both of the blades into his armor, just below his armpits, securing him to the floor.

CHINNGG!!

She knocks him unconscious, and continues into the darkness of the corridor beyond.

INT. THE RED LIGHT ROOM – NIGHT (THE PRESENT)

                             DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

So this Yamagata had your father…

(She doesn’t respond)

Nayoko, I can’t help you, unless you

give me more to work with…

She makes no sound.

He steps forward as if to touch her.

NAYOKO

No!!

She stands, and holds one arm outward indicating not to approach.

Upon her neck are two bloodied cut lines.

One on each side of her neck.

5

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

You’re hurt…

He starts to approach her once again.

NAYOKO

No!!

She holds her right arm out, palm towards him, indicating once again not to approach.

Upon her palm, written in Japanese, is the word Hira.

He steps back.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Hira…

She looks at him curiously, her head tilting just slightly, tears streaming down her cheeks.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

The name on your hand…

Nayoko quickly pulls her hand back against her chest, bows her head, and begins to fall backwards, as if losing her balance.

Ben starts forward to aid her, and then stops himself.

She regains her stance.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

What is… Hira

INT. YAMAGATA’S HIDEOUT – OUTSIDE YAMAGATA’S MAIN CHAMBER – DAY (EARLIER THAT DAY)

Nayoko continues down the dark hallway, until she reaches a set of double metal doors.

She holds up a miniature audio-playing device.

Yamagata’s voice comes out of the device.

VOICE DEVICE

Open…

     The doors open, and she continues her same stride.

6

INT. YAMAGATA’S MAIN CHAMBER

Inside there is a well-dressed older Asian man, YAMAGATA, smoking a cigarette.

                         YAMAGATA
Do I know you…

Nayoko walks straight up to him and grabs him by the throat.

YAMAGATA

Eekkk!

NAYOKO

Where is my father?

YAMAGATA

Your Father…
Than I do know you…

She knees him in the privates.

YAMAGATA

Oohh!!

She throws him up, and over his private bar, which sits   right behind him.

CRAASSSHH!!!

Nayoko pulls out some form of sonic gun, and blows the bar to pieces in a single shot.

FWAMMM!!

Just then Aki enters the room, raising his arm to block his face from pieces of shrapnel from the explosion.

Meanwhile, Yamagata sits curled up against the wall trying to breathe.

Suddenly, Yamagata reaches for two guns at his sides, and begins to let loose a firestorm at Nayoko.

BLAM!! BLAM!! BLAM!!

7

Nayoko avoids the shots, and hurls a nearby blunt object at Yamagata’s head, knocking him unconscious.

YAMAGATA

Aahhh!!!

Aki draws his swords, and moves forward to engage Nayoko.

Nayoko disarms Aki, and holds her gun against his forehead.

NAYOKO

Choose life…

Aki, stands perfectly still, and begins to break into a sweat.

He then looks over at Yamagata whose lies motionless.

Unconscious.

Aki drops his swords, and runs out of the room.

INT. YAMAGATA’S HIDEOUT – THE HALLWAY OUTSIDE YAMAGATA’S CHAMBERS

Nayoko drags Yamagata down the hallway, his head bumping about.

INT. RED LIGHT ROOM – NIGHT (THE PRESENT)

Ben spins his chair around backwards, and moves closer to Nayoko.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

What happened Nayoko?

Where’s your father?

Nayoko looks over at a cloak that is folded up on top of the table, for the room has become a bit cold.

Ben follows her gaze and sees that she’s noted the cloak.

He walks over to the table, picks up the cloak, and tosses it to her as if feeding a lion.

Nayoko’s eyes sparkle just a bit, still dark as ever.

She nods in thanks.

8

Ben sits back down.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Where’s your father Nayoko?

INT. YAMAGATA’S HIDEOUT – DAY (EARLIER THAT DAY)

Nayoko drags Yamagata onto her flight-ship.

Yamagata starts to wake as his head is being bumped repeatedly against the ship ramp.

INT. NAYOKO’S SHIP

Nayoko throws Yamagata into an open metal crate, which automatically closes and locks.

YAMAGATA’S (O.S.)

You can not do this!!! Do you know

who I am!!!”

Nayoko sits in the pilot seat, and ignites the thruster engines.

EXT. NAYOKO’S SHIP – DAY

Nayoko’s ship lifts off into the sky above.

VRRRRROOOONNNN!!

INT. NAYOKO’S SHIP

YAMAGATA (O.S.)

You will never find your father

without me!!!

Never!!

Nayoko pushes a blue lit button, and the crate begins to shrink in size.

YAMAGATA (O.S.)

Aahhhhh!!!!

The crate is now half its original size.

YAMAGATA (O.S.)

Nnnoooo!!!!!

9

EXT. NAYOKO’S SHIP

Nayoko’s ship flys through the air.

INT. – NAYOKO’S SHIP

YAMAGATA (O.S.)

Okay, okay!!!

But how do I know you won’t kill me

if I tell you??

NAYOKO

I value life… I can’t help that…

Now tell me where he is…

YAMAGATA (O.S.)

Asano has him… He’s holding him

hostage on the forty second floor

of the third Asano Eight Building…

NAYOKO

Thank you…

Nayoko pushes a red button and the crate drops through the floor and out of the ship.

EXT. NAYOKO’S SHIP – OVER THE OCEAN

The crate falls thousands of feet…

YAMAGATA (O.S.)

Nnnooo!!!!

…until it hits, and sinks, deep into the ocean below.

INT. THE RED LIGHT IN – NIGHT (THE PRESENT)

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

So you killed him anyway…

Nayoko nods in agreement, her head bowed.

NAYOKO

He’s killed thousands of people

in his reign of madness…

(She looks up at Ben)

10

NAYOKO

Like I told him… I value life…

She bows her head once more.

NAYOKO

He will end no more lives…

He’s in a box…

Under the ocean…

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

I see.

And your father…

Nayoko suddenly stares blankly outward.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Nayoko… What is it?

NAYOKO

I must go…

She stands, lets the cloak fall to the floor, and walks towards the door.

Ben stands.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Nayoko you can’t leave…

Hell, you turned yourself in!

Nayoko stops in front of the door, and bows her head.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Did you destroy Asano’s building’s

Nayoko?!

Some how I’m starting to think you

did…

Nayoko turns towards him.

11

NAYOKO

Please let me go Detective Wayne…

I can not stay here… It’s not safe

for anyone…

Tears fall down her cheek.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

I’m afraid that’s not good enough

Nayoko… So far all you’ve told me

is that your father is dead to you…

(He picks up her cloak)

And how you threw some guy into a

crate and dropped him into the

ocean…

(He throws it over her shoulders)

I’m afraid that at this point it’s

not looking too good for you…

(Ben sits her back down)

Now I suggest you just sit back down,

and finish telling me what happened…

EXT. NAYOKO’S SHIP – APPROACHING THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S – (EARLIER THAT DAY)

Eight identical building’s that stand in a circle in the middle of New Tokyo’s down town business district.

TITLE: The Asano Eight Building’s

They are the tallest building’s in the city.

Or at least they were.

INT. NAYOKO’S SHIP

Nayoko goes to autopilot, and enters a small one-person escape pod.

INT. THE ESCAPE POD

It has a viewing window.

12

EXT. NAYOKO’S MAIN SHIP

The escape pod ejects from the main ship, several miles from the Asano Eight Building’s.

THE ESCAPE POD

As it falls to the earth, small rockets emerge, and bring it safely to the ground.

FWUUMMM!!!

It strikes the earth with a…

THUUMMPP!!

THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S – CENTER COURTYARD

A large fountain rests in the middle of the center courtyard.

Nayoko’s main ship crashes right into the courtyard fountain.

FWWWAAAAHHHHHH!!! BOOOMM!!!

A PARK – NEAR THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S

The escape pod rests in the ground.

INT. THE ESCAPE POD

Nayoko wears eye censors that allow her to see what her main ship’s viewing screen can see.

EXT. THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S – CENTER COURTYARD

A legion of armed security guards enters from the many Asano building’s, and begins to approach Nayoko’s crashed ship.

INT. THE ESCAPE POD

NAYOKO

Activate laser cannons…

EXT. THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S – CENTER COURTYARD

Laser canons suddenly appear atop Nayoko’s main ship.

13

INT. THE ESCAPE POD

NAYOKO

Fire!!!

EXT. THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S – CENTER COURTYARD

The laser cannons lay down a rapid fire upon the security guards.

Some are taken out, and some take cover.

INT. THE ESCAPE POD

NAYOKO

Set for defense five…

Nayoko out…

Nayoko takes off her eye censors, puts on a weighted backpack, and opens up the top of the pod.

EXT. A PARK – NEAR THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S

The lid fly’s off the pod, landing on the surrounding surface with a…

TTHHUUDDD!!

She bounds out of the pod, landing smoothly upon the earth.

She bows her head, and takes the talisman on her necklace into her hand.

NAYOKO

Father… Forgive me…

THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S

INT. THIRD BUILDING – 42ND FLOOR

Many well-dressed Asian businessmen, including MR. ASANO (New Tokyo Mob Boss), MR. WAKAI (2nd in command), and MR. DOI (An Ali to Asano), watch in horror from above.

  1. WAKAI

What is the meaning of this…

14

EXT. THE ASANO EIGHT BUILDING’S – CENTER COURTYARD

Some fifty or so security guards approach Nayoko’s main ship, which has halted fire.

As soon as the guards are within twenty to thirty feet of the ship, it explodes.

VVVOOOOOMMMM!!!! CCCLLLAAANNNGGGG!!!!!

A majority of the security guards are killed.

INT. THIRD BUILDING – 42nd FLOOR

  1. ASANO

Maybe it has to do with him…

Asano points at HIRA, Nayoko’s father, who’s attired in soft black clothing, and sits tied up to a chair in the back of the room. His eyes are shut, and head is bowed.

  1. DOI

Don’t be a fool Asano… No one, save

Yamagata, knows he’s here…

  1. ASANO

Perhaps…

(Mr. Asano’s Secretary enters)

  1. WAKAI

How dare you enter unannounced!!

SECRETARY

My humble pardon Mr. Asano Sir…

(She bows her head)

You have an urgent visitor…

Aki enters, sweating and shaken.

INT. THE RED LIGHT ROOM – NIGHT (THE PRESENT)

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

So you killed all of those innocent

security guards…

This really isn’t sounding good for

you Nayoko…

15

Nayoko sits as though in a trance.

Ben kneels down in front of her.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Nayoko…

NAYOKO

They’re coming for me…

INT. NEW TOKYO’S HIDDEN QUESTIONING FACILITY – MAIN ENTRANCE

Some dozen masked men in black, Asano’s men, enter the facility shooting poisonous blow darts at any police

officer’s they see.

INT. THE RED LIGHT ROOM

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

Who?

Suddenly lasers circle the door handle to the room.

Sparks shoot everywhere.

DETECTIVE BEN WAYNE

What the…

NAYOKO

Sorry Detective…

Nayoko strikes the back of Ben’s shoulder and neck, knocking him unconscious.

She then takes a crouching position, out of direct line from the door.

Suddenly the door handle falls to the floor, and the door swings open.

Four Priests in white robes fly into the room in full-extended kicks, and roll into defensive positions.

Nayoko stands upright.

16

MASTER OBUCHI, High Priest of the White Jade Order, steps through the door.

                             NAYOKO

Master Obuchi…

MASTER OBUCHI

We haven’t much time Little Hira…

Nayoko tears out the door, and the priests follow.

Writing

Posted in Allure, Chess With Agatha, Fantasy Novel, I Died Once, Kickstarter, Mady's Storm, Poetry, Writing with tags on March 2, 2015 by darkjade68

writing-a-bookWriting

I’m at an interesting point with writing right now

A bit of my writing history, for those of you that haven’t followed my blog since 2011 when I created it

0572ba5fd1f62d6a9fe5bfde69a5fdb1

(1973-76)

First of all, my first dream was to be a Professional Baseball Player

A Pitcher to be more specific

I’ve mentioned this along the way

Gave that up because I lived with a single mom, in the middle of a remote canyon

And it just would have been tough to pull off

Lucas(1977)

Then in 1977 I saw the Original Star Wars at the age of 8

And I wanted to be a Filmmaker from then on

A Director to be specific

Now at some point between the age of 11 and 13

(1979-1981)

I actually started to write a book called

One Knight

(Which I actually started again from scratch in 2011/2012)

And when I showed it to my dad (Who I didn’t live with, but was visiting) he told me I was a Writer

screenplayNow in say, 1995-96, being the person I was with told me they would leave me if I pursued Film Making

I suggested that I instead pursue Screenplay Writing

They would not agree to this either

Fortunately this relationship ended in 1998

And in 1999, I finally attempted to pursue Film Making

“The Realm” (2000)

Now this mainly began with some experimental stuff, like the footage above

Which was basically my brother and I and Action Figures

No Editing

Just rolling the camera with an Effect on that changed the way everything looked

And also helped to hide our hands, Lol

And the music is the Soundtrack from “Conan”

Being played out of a Music Box sitting near by

The reason the music sounds so good is that the Video Camera

Which I believe was a Sony…..

Had a very good Microphone built into it

“If Not Now…” (2002)

And then two years later, My First Short Film, “If Not Now…”

Now with this, there was Editing

But, I filmed it in an hour and a half due to my brothers’ time constraints

So some of it was kind of rough, because there weren’t enough takes to choose from

None the less, I got it into Film and Video Festival in New York

Which changed my life

Even so, after my Dad watched it with me (I invited him to go to New York with me)

He still continued to refer to me as a Writer

At the time, that kind of bothered me

Because I was a Filmmaker

But reflecting, I think there are two reasons for this

I do believe my Dad is actually an unrealized Writer

And thus that is his focus

And, I am in fact a Writer

screenwriting(2003-2005)

In 2002, I also wrote my First Draft of my Screenplay “White Jade”

And a Play called “Stranger In The Dark”

And in 2003, I stepped away from Film Making

And began writing Screenplays

White Jade Cover Book 1(2006)

And in 2006, hired an Artist to convert the first few pages of “White Jade” into a Comic Book

written word(2011-Present)

But it wasn’t until 2011 that I finally decided to give Writing 100% of my focus

With the Creation of “The Written Word” Blog

Where you are now

And for a year and a half, I Wrote like crazy

Some of you may know some of what I showed, and some may not

But I am in a very interesting spot right now

Determining What’s Next For Me

I Want To Edit And Self Publish My Written Books

But What’s Next?

Do I Focus On Material That I’ve Already Written

Like Marketing My Screenplay “White Jade”

Or Do I Work On Whole New Projects?

I Know That I Am Happy With What I’ve Written So Far

And Though I Had To Step Away From Film Making

I Am Happy With My Short Film “If Not Now…”

This Year Feels Very Different For Me

And I Don’t Have A Definite Answer

But Hopefully All Of You Will Continue

Just 7 Days Left… “Mady’s Storm” Kickstarter Project

Posted in Kickstarter, Mady's Storm, Novella on February 24, 2015 by darkjade68

There's Mady. Could she be in hot water?kickstarterJust 7 Days Left… “Mady’s Storm” Kickstarter Project

“Mady’s Storm” Kickstarter Project (This Link Will Take You There)

This project has actually gone pretty good

At the moment, we have $270 of the $500 Needed

A week’s not that long to drum up the remaining $230, but I’ll see what I can do

I’m still awaiting a reply from the Photographer of the Cover

We had agreed on a price to use the photo last year

And I’m just waiting for her to verify the amount

If the project is a success, and she agreees

I’ll be sending her, her payment

And then the hard part…

Finding an Editor that can Edit the book in around 20 Hours

The Budget will be about $200, so $10 an hour

Which isn’t much

But I have to work with what I got, if I get it that is

$200 of the $500 will go to the Editor

$40 to $50 to the Photographer

$50 to Kickstarter and Amazon

And the final $200 will go towards paying for the Contributor Rewards

Printed Copies of my book Etc.

Thanks for all of your patience with the Marketing of this project

I don’t actually know tons of people

So it’s definitely a challenge getting these things funded

Somehow I got 17 Contributors on “I Died Once” back in July, 2012

This project has 5 Contributors so far, but a couple of them have given pretty generously

I sure hope this works, as it’s been around 2 1/2 years since I Self Published a book

And I have several that I want to get out there

Share this with anyone you can, if you don’t mind

Every Contributions helps, whether it’s $5, or $50, it doesn’t really matter

Thanks again to all of you, and to my 5 Contributors
