With all of his younger siblings about to be married off, will David finally propose to his longtime girlfriend?
The website for The Ace was really inspiring and helped me come up with a concept for not just one submission, but a screenplay for each type of room in the hotel as listed on their sites, with the concept being ’24 Hours In The Life at The Ace Hotel,’.
For each of my individual scripts, most take place in one room within the hotel, with minimal extra props and actors needed, so as to keep the cost of shooting low and could be completed in either one or two days.
Whether the overarching concept inspires Killer Films, Massify, or other participants, I hope one or more of my screenplays appeals to any and all of the above mentioned:
For ‘The Deluxe Room, or Like I Could Marry You,’ I wanted to take advantage of the ambiance of the rooms at The Ace Hotel. For the most part, it’s a straight ahead black and white motif, which I wanted to apply to the mindset and story of a couple attending a wedding in NYC. I chose to focus on David, almost fully dressed in a black suit with white shirt, trying to have an earnest conversation with his longtime girlfriend about how and why he hasn’t proposed, even though all of his younger siblings are about to be married.
The floor plan of the Deluxe Queen room really gave me an idea of how to utilize the reveal of the girlfriend and I hope when she finally appears on camera, it opens the audience up to the stark contrasts of her mindset and appearance, and that of the room, and how it all relates to their relationship. Thanks for reading it and for your feedback!
