~Fade in to a small house somewhere in the eastern United States. This small house, identical to the rest in the neighborhood, sits in the middle of suburbia, where big dreams start small, but always ignite the fire of hope in others. This is the story of a boy named Golem, and his dream to make it big.~
Golem: ~Kicks open his front door and strides out towards the street in style~ Today's my lucky day, I can feel it!
~Golem steps off of the curb and peers into his mailbox. A smile wipes across his face as he grabs the mail within, then carefully rips the seal off of the only letter in there. He jumps with joy and holds his letter up to the sky itself.~
Golem: Yes!!! The deed to my very own movie theater has finally arrived! At last, my visions will be put up on the silver screen for all to enjoy. ~Whistles happily to himself as he walks down the street towards town.~
~In town, Golem can finally behold his new purchase in all it's glory: an old, abandoned theater not touched since the 1950's. It was about to be knocked down this month, but Golem stepped in at the last minute and purchased it for it's net worth of $0.23. It's his baby now.
Not long after it shut down though, a new multi-plex movie theater opened right across the street, which was owned and family operated by none other than The Director. He pledged to show only the movies with the highest budgets and the worst actors imaginable.~
Golem: ~Just gets finished looking over the entire building~ Just a spit shine should get this place looking presentable. Maybe then I'll be able to premiere my latest movie: "Sonic meets Alex Kidd in Miracle Zone" A living, breathing adaptation from one of my very own stories by next Friday. Aw man, I'm totally stoked for this!
~Golem continues to dream of his new movie while he tidies up in the lobby, until a large eggplant-type of person hops barges in the door. With him are two official looking body-guard types. They are all wearing sunglasses and oddly colored purple ties.~
Director: What's all this then? This decrepit old dump has opened up again? Hah! you'll never make it in this business kid, you just don't have the experience like I do.
Golem: Oh no, not at all! This would be my first time running a theater by myself. I'm just doing it to show my ideas to the world, but it's all in good fun.
Director: FUN? ~Spits~ What would a kid like you know about fun? The movie business is a harsh world, pal. It'll eat you up and spit you out, hear me? I've been working in this field for a long time, a LONG time, you know? I've seen some ugly things, and I'm trying to save you from the same fate. So...~takes out a purple checkbook~ how much do you want for this rat hole? Name your price!
Golem: No thank you, it's not for sale. Like I said I'm just gonna show my movies for fun, not profit.
Director: ~Pulls down shades and stares at Golem~...Fine. ~Closes check book~ Don't say I didn't warn you. ~Snaps fingers~ Man! Rookie! Let's leave this kid a little message so he won't insult me in the future by not accepting my generous offer. Hop to it!
The Man/ The Rookie: Dur right away, Mr. Director!/ We'll teach him some respect I figure!
~One of the henchmen knock over a nearby trashcan onto the floor, spilling little to no trash, while the other shuffles his feet on the welcome mat, messing it up a bit.~
Rookie: And next time we won't go so easy on you, punk. You'd better WATCH IT. ~Moves his pointer and middle finger from his eyes towards Golem and then walks off with the rest of them.~
Golem: ~Sigh~ What have I gotten myself into now? ~Walks over to the front door and stares out across the street to the up-and-coming poster at the Eggplant Multi-plex. It's featuring big hit movies like "Team IT: Pronoun Squad" or "The Director's What Lies Beneath".~ Holy shoe, what heartless movies! Who would possibly want to see those?
Director returns to his roots...as The Director.
DIRECTOR: The Movie
Just when you thought it was safe to write.
Coming Summer 2008.
Golem: I may have a low budget, but gosh darn it, my movies will be recognized! Okay, it's time for a new project, one that will redefine the term "underdog". I'm gonna need a cast, though. Hmm, maybe a staff, too. Sorry Sonic and Alex, you're gonna have to wait! ~Locks up the doors and walks into downtown.~
OoC: So if you want a little more information about this idea, basically it's an OG showing Golem's many OG ideas as low budget "movies" instead of just scripts. I may not have been around long, but Golem does have a lot of potential ideas, too bad not many pick up (like I'm one to talk anyway).
Basically, now Golem's out in search of a cast for his newest OG, or movie, so feel free to add in anyone you want. The sky is the limit for this OG, and I wonder if Golem will actually post in it!? <s>Probably not.</s> ALRIGHT!!
EDIT: No, I don't know why there's Alpha at the end of the name. Just roll with it!
