11 pages down, 89 to go. 🙂 It is progressing very well and the story is evolving more smoothly than I ever expected, although I feel like I’m having to cram a TON of info into a tiny number of pages, since it’s fantasy. This movie should really be at least 2 hours, maybe 2.5 hours long, and I’m trying to cram it into a 1.5 hour script length. (which means if I want it to be a complete story at the end of Script Frenzy, maybe I should start writing 5-6 pages a day)
Anyway, here is a short narration from page 9 that I thought might pique some interest 🙂
And so it happened that King Callagan gained nearly unlimited power and began controlling almost every aspect of common life in Velaria. Women who could not bear children were executed, and their husbands were required by law to marry again within 90 days. The strongest men and their young boys were forced to work in the mines and in blacksmith shops to make treasures that would pay off the king’s yearly debts.Women and young girls were forced to make garments for the wizards from the wool of sheep; sheep which every family was required to own. Weaker, smaller men were allowed to own farms instead of working in the mines, but they had to give 90% of everything they grew to the king. Some people in Velaria tried to resist King Callagan, but anyone who did was struck down immediately; so eventually, everyone simply obeyed, not knowing what else to do. There was only one hope left for Velaria, and that was Ardith; the only good fairy left in the country. She saw what was happening and wanted to do something; but you see, fairy’s magic is not the same as a wizard’s magic. Wizards seek to control, and fairies, at least, good fairies, seek to help. She alone could not defeat the powerful king, but she would soon set out to find a human who could with the help of a little magic.
