First, by no means do I think the script is complete - that's yet another
reason why I wanted to get other people involved, I am not a script writer.
I've always been a good on ideas, bad on perfecting and follow through, kind
That being said, I was hoping that the opening visuals (a panicked father
running into a hospital carrying his injured child) would draw some
attention. Hell, I even wondered if it would make sense to have part of the
last scene a guy carrying his virus-laden windows machine into the computer
store and the tech guy holding up a CD with linux written on the cover, just
for parallel imagery.
Maybe I should start a different user group to carry on these discussions
elsewhere, don't want to flood trilug with it. I will probably put up a site
with a wiki on it called the linux commercial project or something so that
we can carry on discussions there.
