Willie

Creator: Don Patterson
Age rating: 13 and older
Will could have been a 60's rock icon but fate had other plans. Can Willie now find anyone to listen to his music? Or will supernatural, mythological creatures consume his audience first?
Project collaboration: Closed
Synopsis: Twists and turns abound in this character rich, dark fantasy about aspirations, fate and horror. People are not always who or what they appear to be, sometimes those that appear to be monsters are not.

Willie will hold you in it's grasp from the first page to it's last, because all Willie wants to do is entertain you with his talent. Willie could have been a 60's rock icon but fate had other plans. Can Willie now find anyone to listen to his music?

Or will supernatural, mythological creatures consume his audience first?

Before there were vampires, werewolves and aliens, there were other creatures in human history that went bump in the night.

    Creative Notes:
    Based upon a few comments from those that took the time to read the entire 'fantasy' script, (not just a few pages & give 1 or 2 stars), I decided to rewrite portions of Willie, clarifying dialogue & action, removing 1 scene, adding 2 new scenes. Thank you to those that offered quality comments. I also left all 'sex' scenes to the imagination of the reader, enabling a '13 and older' rating.

  • Script 3 - Don's 3rd Draft
    05/28/11
    Creative Notes:
    This upload of Willie was the last revision of the script prior to a read-through and final polish. Still have not figured out the formatting problems I am having with rtf. The PDF file is a copy of this version of Willie (format is better and easier to read). I apologize to all that had to stumble through draft 1 and draft 2. I am new at AS, trying to learn workability within the AS framework.
  • Script 2 - Don's 2nd Draft
    05/28/11
    Creative Notes:
    For some reason, when the script format was changed to rtf, so it could be placed on AmazonStudios, the quality of the script was also changed (I work in fdr). While correcting the format issues, I saw some errors, typos and updated dialogue from another, later version (I have not read Willie in over a year). I apologize for the late house cleaning, I am still learning formatting and how AS works.
  • Script 1 - Don's Original Draft
    05/25/11
    Creative Notes:
    Willie was started in 2006. Went through many writes and rewrites. This version of Willie was registered with WGA (west) in 2009. There are some very minor changes in the later copyrighted version. The key was to keep the sexual aspect within the Willie screenplay at a minimum, not to diminish the 'sex' importance or impact but leave as much (potential nudity) to the imagination as possible.
