"What the hell can I do with a "semi-fictional novel" about g-d damn synthetic telepathy and "invisible "nano chips?," the movie producer asked the 'who's -it"on the speaker phone(in his business unless "you had a name -you may as well have had No Name at all.
"On film it'll look like a whole bunch of schizophrenics walking around with fucking Voice Overs...I don't care if "it really happened or is happening ...we've already done our "arthouse" lot for the year"
The producer,Neil Gratzick thought for a moment .
and because Neil was so used to thinking in terms of PLACE ,TIME and UNIFORMITY of scene
Neil's inner monologue
often 'read" exactly like a shooting script
Because of this
Neil Gratzick thought,"We see Neil Gratzick from behind.
Neil is in a sparsely but expensively decorated expansive office.
A few framed movie posters and a mantle of Oscars suggest Neil Gatzick is no small player
in "The Film Industry"
From behind,Neil thinks, with Neil's balding pate that barely rises above the leather backing of his swivel chair that swivels and jolts like a jumpy leg emphasizing the
misinterpreted dict-ori-al tone( that early in his career Neil realized was the only tone
"outsider's" and "whose-its" responded to
as nearly everyone not in executive positions of the business of Entertainment
assumed they understood "what exactly made a movie MOVE." )
one might assume "this Neil Gatzick" was a parody of producer.A man we might assume of assumed poses and "stolen sketches" of long ago Goldwyn Mayer/Selznick cigar huff and puff.
But when we see the swivel chair revolve and
CLOSE UP on Neil Gatzick's hard won lines of thoughtfulness and concern
imprinted on Neil's 62 year old ruddy face
and TILT DOWN to a book entitled
"Unwanted Interface;Targeted Individuals and Human Experimentation-a semi fictitious novel
and hear the pause of thought before Neil suggests
"How about we include some nano chips that also make their bodies change shape-The Wolfman meets Invasion of The Body Snatchers meets MK Ultra "Pliant-ology shit?"
We realize we are dealing with
a man of intellect and empathy.
a TIGHT SHOT of a speaker that implies "phone"introduces us to what we might rightly presume is the author's agent and mouth piece
we hear the "whose-it" say -
"the author said specifically he did not want his book Jonny Depp-ed or X-Men-ed into incredulousness...The author believes that that is one of the problems with Hollywood ,"the cheapening of the horror of these Advanced technologies with car chases and -"
'If," Neil Gatzick says," the semi fictional "story" is so important ,than why haven't I heard about Human Experiments with Mind to Mind Interface?
In Neil Gatzick's mind Neil sees his minor interest in the "semi -story" wane,the semi fictional "novel' his wife's lover had lent him telling him ,"it was so disturbing to him he was forced to give up weed for 4 days."
"it won't play," Gatzick said ,"not without a visual angle....Shape shifting or some shit like that..Did you see "The Host" why that poor actress looked more like she belonged in "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" and "The Host" was NO TWILIGHT" at the box office...Remember "Teen Wolf" ...now NOBODY thought Teen Wolf would do as well as it did ,did they"
No Name on the speaker phone seemed to plead,"The book is about unsolicited Human Testing with Psychotronic weap-..."
"Get back to me when this Unsolicited Human Testing is Trending or when this Ner' do well/never heard of him NUTJOB agrees to at least consider that these 'so called" nanochips that supposedly enable another to read and project upon another's mind couldn't also do something cinematic to their bodies...Besides.
IF "some agency" is indeed doing this Testing
I can guarantee they'd want "the story" Jonny Depp-ed to the gills.

In the late 1990's the movie studio
had agreed to "test the techno"
and "lend out" some of it's best screenwriters to
certain "agencies" to practice
both "scaring some sense " or "senselessness "upon another
in exchange for certain rights and privileges concerning developing the technology for purely consumer reasons.
Neil asked his secretary to hold all calls
he needed a "breather"-a diversion
Neil turned on the special modem that allowed him access to
"some male hustler Methfreak"one of his assistants had 'app-ed" on Santa Monica Blvd.
Upon placing the headset on his skull and temples
Neil felt the meth tingle his nasal cavity
and the rush that soon followed
and best of all
the cock in his mouth
"the kid" didn't swallow.
"it was enough"for Neil to sense
a bit of
jism on his cheeks
the feeling so real
Neil instinctively reached for a Kleenex.
in Neil 'synapses
Neil removed the book about "things one does not dare speak of let alone write about"
from the trashcan
he had tossed it in
before going "mobile"
with "the Kid"
The book so disturbed Neil Gatzick that he
reached out again for the headset
hoping for another "hit"
but instead Neil
paged through "the diatribe"
that had somehow bypassed most channels of publishing that would have at the very least presented
with a dust jacket that presumed
upon the it
a questionable reliability and Plausible Deniability
A pyramid with an eye in it,a UFO ...some 1960's 'wavy-gravy" typography
instead of a book jacket sleek and stern
in it's merit
with no "tin foil hat"connotations whatsoever.
Even the photo of the author, in suit and tie made the book formidable.
The author ,Neil Gatzick was well aware of..

to Hollywood 2 decades ago to be an actor
but was mistakenly "taken " for a transient because oif his 'down on his luck" choice of hotel
and his "Grunge Thing".

"The Author" was
one of the first to be "app-ed"but offered absolutely to "The Project "but casting calls and script memorization
a horrible Mistake of Mistaken "presumed" inner identity
as nothing was more boring to Hollywood
(AND the various agencies
that loaned the studio the equipment

Several "well placed men"took the than "kid"

"The Boy "put the "B" in Boring

subsequently a rather complex interface was conducted on "Jonny Olson"

rather too complex screenplay in the studio's library of un-producible screenplays
that involved the antichrist
