SAMPLE OUTLINEBySteve Jones and Hayley CookeVehicle: Feature Film Title: Rom-Com(Working Title) THE WORLD OF THE STORY This story is set in London, mainly based around the office of a young, talentedscreenwriter who specialises in romantic comedy. However, as successful she isprofessionally, she cannot seem to be lucky in love, and dreams of a perfectgentleman to come along and sweep her off her feet just like in one of her films. The offices are just like the rest of the business – chauvinistic and dominated bymen, who think that a woman belongs on screen instead of behind a typewriter. Those women who do make a success come across as power-hungry andaggressive, jumping on any sign of weakness and seeing any other women as apotential threat. They use sex as a weapon and in many ways cheapenthemselves to get ahead in the game. Our young screenwriter, inexperiencedand naïve, has not learnt the ways of the world yet and doesn’t want to bedragged into the battlefield between the sexes. THE CHARACTERSSOPHIE CLARK (23) – The protagonist who has become a recent success bywriting one of the most promising romantic comedy screenplays for years. Shegrew up in a small town in Kent with her father, her mother having left when shewas 6. They became understandably close and remain so through her newfoundsuccess.

We see Sophie change, because of herfriend (and true love) Marcus, from the naïve girl longing for the perfect lovestory to a grown up (but not cynical) woman who understands what love trulymeans.MARCUS SANDFORT (24) – Sophie’s childhood friend, Marcus became her agentand manager once her script became a success. Once he was totally in love withher, but now he has accepted that friends is the best he’s going to get so heconcentrates on being a good manager and helping her any way that he can. Heis the product of parents who stayed together for the kids, but couldn’t hide thebiting resentment that bubbled underneath the surface. As such, he can bepretty cynical about things and balances Sophie’s naivety well. As the storymoves on, though, we see his softer side as he strives to fulfil Sophie’s romanticdream. TONY HURT (57) – The producer of “Praise Love”, the film that came fromSophie’s screenplay. He is a world renowned producer of this genre, but over thelast few years he has become more dated as younger, hipper producers have
