GIVE ME A BREAK
Ten year old Michael comes up with an idea to get his bike back from the thieving hands of Wes; the neighborhood bully.
Whatever happens to good old short stories (or scripts) that gave the reader/viewer a fun n’ quirky slice of life? They seem to be in short supply these days: bumped to the side in favor of vampire and zombie flicks… and comedies that focus on wacky scenarios and bawdy sex antics. (Not that there’s anything wrong with those, mind you.)
Well, here’s a blast from the past. A fun, straightforward story of a few innocent kids picked on by the neighborhood bully… and the ten year old who hatches a plan to stop the lunk in his tracks. The script’s simple, fun and short – with a neat twist. Give this one a read, and consider it for your next project. It’s sure to leave you with happy viewers, who will remember this short long after the credits roll.
