Is there anywhere in existence a pool or repository of ideas for
fiction–a place where somebody like me can post or offer an idea that
somebody else, say a scriptwriter, could take and develop into a
I have a lot of interesting ideas, but realistically I know that I am
not going to develop them. However, if they were made into a movie, I
would love to go see them. So I am not concerned about protecting
them. I'd offer them free to someone who has the means and machinery
to turn them into something.
So I am just wondering if there is any central posting place where
homeless creative ideas might meet people who could take them in and
give them some support.
For instance, I saw this sentence in a story on CNN's website about
the election crisis in the Ukraine:
In Washington, meanwhile, the White House issued a statement saying
the United States is "deeply disturbed by extensive and credible
indications of fraud committed in the Ukranian presidential election."
And I thought: what a great idea for a movie! Turning the tables on
a couple of generations of spy stories, let's have a plot where the
Russian spies come into the U.S. secretly and do what we can't do for
ourselves–namely, uncover the true story of a fraudulent American
election and put things right (of course without their part in it
becoming known)–in order to force the American government to withdraw
from meddling in the internal politics of their nation.
Now, how could I put that idea before someone who might be able to make use of it?
