About Charles

INT. STORY OF MY LIFE - CONTINUOUS
INSTINCT
I am a creative time-conscious diligent person
with a keen eye for detail and a strong passion
for visual storytelling.
NOTION
There you go again. At this impulse doesn't
even matter for you to reveal your identity. It's
nourished your veins long enough for it to
deserve a recognition at this climax!
INSTINCT
Oh yes.
A Screenwriter and aspiring Director.
NOTION
That's great. It warms my cold dead heart.
INSTINCT
Wait! And how did we just get to the climax!
Notion reckons his emotions with disbelief, 'how could passion of such
impact not know he was flourishing a script!' He confidently turns to an halt.
Eyes intensely fixed at him.
NOTION
How we got to the climax!
He chuckles his head. Then freezes alert.
INSTINCT
Oh yes. I remember. It was 1994. 6 years of age then.
How my big brother used to sneak me for late night
movie at our neighbor's house after our parents slept.
NOTION
I remember. I remember you saying he was the only
one with a TV and a cassette player in the vicinity.
They overwhelmingly CHUCKLE with LAUGHTER.
INSTINCT
and how we tirelessly got whipped for sneaking out.
It never even can to his mind that sneaking me wouldn't
avoid our parents knowing.
NOTION
You ought to thank him though.
INSTINCT
Yeah. If only there was a better way, like casting him for
a block buster movie. Because of his sneaking I discovered
my screen writing. And screenwriting I did, and I do, to which
each letter of my writings haunts me to visualize it. Now
there's only piles, and un-wrought impulse to quench my
passion: visualizing my screenplays.
NOTION
You said quite often. Even went for a directing course to see
it happen. If only this country, or continent had film-making
scheme!
INSTINCT
If only I ever lost you!
NOTION
I made sure that will never happen.
INSTINCT
Seriously! How?
NOTION
By being a part of your life everyday. Flowing in
veins.
He smiles gently. Notion is surprised.
INSTINCT
What, you expected a surprise from me. I
expected that. 'Cause if was not a filmmaker
I don't know what else I would be, perhaps a
dead man!
NOTION
That's too graphic. Lets just say you're a
gifted screenwriter/director searching for
a fellow gifted filmmaker to visualize his
dream. No his scripts. No, his dream. Yeah
his dream.
