Introduce Yourself : A Brief Introduction To Me by Joshua Bowman

Joshua Bowman

A Brief Introduction To Me

My name is Josh Bowman and I am a queer 21 year old. I've been lucky enough to have an amazing support system so I'd like to ensure that we have some more strong, positive representation in modern cinema. (Not a fan of Call Me By Your Name as it furthered the idea that all gay men are pedophiles). I am an amateur screenwriter working on my first feature-length film called "Little, Less, Nothing". The first section is done and my characters are introduced but I've been running into some massive writer's block. I've been surrounded by poetry, theatre, and art all my life so I'm doing my best to translate that onto the screen and am welcoming of any and all feedback!

You're at the fun part now.... you've introduced your characters, now put them through something that'll change them into different people

B A Mason

You're in the right community for feedback and peer review - Don't be shy to share your work. I'm sure it'll be great!

Jess Waters

This is a great place to get feedback! (And I fully agree with your analysis of films like "Call Me By Your Name", we definitely have to change the way queer folks are represented on screen, so this is an important step)

WL Wright

Let it flow, stop trying to direct what comes out.

James Welday

Do you know your story’s ending yet, or where you want your protagonist’s path to end? In my experience, I’ve always felt if you know the conclusion, you’re backtracking toward that resolution.
