Treatment for feature film about South Eastern Asian Story about the darkside of a family inside a dynasty

(Union & Non-Union)

My story if for serious interested parties and was graded by John Zodrow during his career as a professor and producer as having an element of the classics in it. He is known as a best selling author that received comments about his own work as follows. "Remarkable... bizarre... tumultuous... impressive:'-Chazles Champlin, Los Angeles Times
The startling novel of passion grown to the farthest reaches of human hunger, in the darkest, most primitive corner of Earth....
" If you would like to escape our civilization for a bit, read John Zodrow. He will take you far away." -Mary Hemingway

Do Tax Incentives for the Film Industry Hurt or Help States?

The Moon Under Glass

Production Company: 
Ellipsis Entertainment
Plot/Description: 
Waking up to another sunny day, Hal goes about without a single care. His life is perfect. Everyone loves him, and everything always just seems to work out. But these loving neighbors, faultless luck, and glorious atmospheres are the work of someone else: a man whose sole purpose is to construct Hal's world; from every car that is parked, to the words spilling out from each friend's lips. This creator, of sorts, is the one responsible for Hal's flawless life. Looking to instill Hal's world as a paradise, he crafts a playful, exciting girl named Dali. After she continuously intrigues Hal, he begins to grasp a strong connection with her and even starts tasting love for the first time. But looking for any simple sign of appreciation, the creator begins testing Hal. Simply just trying to verify that his life's work means something to the only person that matters, he consistently stages opportunities for Hal to express gratefulness, only to repeatedly come up disappointed by Hal's oblivion. Everything begins to change when the creator, fed up with Hal's lack of gratitude, removes Dali and abandons his work. But as Hal's atmosphere begins to fade away, he can only dwell on Dali's disappearance. With his mind preoccupied and his world dissolving around him, can Hal survive?
