Idea for a screenplay

I'm thinking of writing a screenplay. A tragedy, of sorts, about an ambitious young post-grad actor. Yes, a thespian. He moves to Los Angeles to do what he loves and pursue his dream, where he initially has some success. Yet after two years of little progress and dead-end jobs, he runs out of money completely, gets bogged down in debt, has his dreams smashed and is forced to move back in with his parents with his tail between his legs to pick up the pieces and figure out what to do next. Yes, I think this screenplay will be my ticket straight to the top!

I have no idea how to end it, though.


  1. The ambitious young post-grad actor takes a holiday/road-trip from London to Liverpool, stopping at Stratford-upon-Avon along the way. End credits sequence is filled with rad pictures/clips of the cool stuff he visits along the way and ends with him arriving back hope with all the possibilities in the world ahead of him.

    You can do it. :)

  2. you should end it with him jumping into a huge pool filled with chocolate pudding.
    i have faith in you, dilly dally.
