Rhymes with "five". A neo-noir, horror-fantasy script written independently (with feedback from my fellow students at Columbia College Chicago), inspired in part by the classic Frankenstein films, "Blade Runner", "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night", a side mission in Fable II, and others.
I wrote the script when I was in a dark period of depression, and when thinking about stories of resurrection I wondered about the effect witnessing it would have on someone who lives in a state of despair and hopelessness, on the edge of death themselves. The first draft was tragically deleted, but I was able to rewrite the script and later polish it thanks to feedback from my classmates.
