Working poster of the movie High As A Rocket Ship

We will ideally shoot American version of the movie HIGH AS A ROCKET SHIP from start of December 2020 to end of February 2021.

Early Plot

One rarely comes across a sibling rivalry as creative as that of Kevin and Lars Watterson. Both brothers – 13 year old Kevin, and 9 year old Lars – are (cute) unstoppable devil incarnates, who are always trying to outwit each other and get each other into trouble. The elder brother Kevin is addicted to Video Games and TikTok. The younger brother Lars is obsessed with rocket science and nerdy tech stuff. In the winter of 2018, right about when SpaceX is preparing to use their Falcon Heavy rocket, to launch an astronaut dummy called Starman and an electric Tesla car into Martian orbit, Lars and Kevin end up being swept into their most adventurous “battle” yet. Gianna Cole, Lars's elementary school classmate, outsmarts both the Watterson brothers in what follows.

Tone & Purpose

HIGH AS A ROCKET SHIP will be a kids and family movie.

We will make it as delightful and adventurous as the movie Home Alone, or the comic strip Calvin And Hobbes.

Our movie will touch upon contemporary innovations in rocket science, space exploration, 3D printing, robotics, augmented reality, etcetera. It will also show dangers of social media in a fun way.

Purpose of our movie HIGH AS A ROCKETSHIP is to throughly entertain and inspire today's kids, as well as their adult family members.

Daily Writing History

I used to be, and I still am, a compurter programmer and a software engineer. Drawing from that experience I find git indispensable to writing screenplay for multiple movies simultaneously. It is also the best tool for organizing vast amounts of scattered ideas and inspirations into a compelling start-to-end screenplay.

I use the below command to generate daily writing log that is specific to the HIGH AS A ROCKET SHIP movie.
