Script an unreadable mess
When Illinois native Fred Durnett vowed to write “an edgy script that wasn’t confined to the tired old three-act structure,” the 24-year-old barista had no idea he was setting a record as the 1,000th newbie to attempt the feat.
He also didn’t realize he was writing a shitty script.
“I’ve never been big on following the rules,” said Durnett. “Plus I’m special, so there’s that. I’m basically so talented that I can break all the usual screenwriting conventions without even knowing them.”
The resulting script, a raunchy comedy loosely based on all three of Durnett’s sexual exploits, features no act breaks, no turning points and minimal character arcs. It also employs extensive voiceovers and flashback sequences.
“What I tried to do with ‘SEX AND PIZZA’ was create a fluid, unpredictable story,” he said of the 134-page tome. “I can’t wait to see what the folks at ScriptPimp think!”
