Below is the first draft for the script I have written myself. It’s a Romantic Comedy that basically shows a guy getting over his ex through talking to a girl over the phone.
Synopsis: Through a series of anonymous calls, Steve Shepard learns the the importance of living and loving again, after the break-up of his ex.
I think this idea is far more direct in its simplistic storyline. It has a clear beginning, middle and end. As well as that, it follows professionally used models:
The Mundane World-
(the hero begins in a place they have no desire to be)
Steve starts off depressed, it’s not his desire to be single and alone.
The Call To Adventure-
(Someone tells the hero there is something else out there)
His friend tells him to move on and feel better he must get back out there and enjoy himself.
Crossing The Threshold-
(The hero crosses into the new world, leaving the old one behind him)
By entering the phone box and answering the phone (the threshold) he begins a new chapter
The Path Of Trials-
(The hero goes on an adventure meeting new people, learning new skills and overcoming challenges)
(1) meeting Girl/Sophie (2) having a good night out with friends (3) getting his job back
The Master Of Two Worlds-
(Having succeeded in the new world, the hero returns to the old world as a changed person)
First time you see Steve passionate about something, he is changed from seeing the writing in the Phone Box and becomes the hero to win his girl.
