How does a no-name person get their film treatment for a great book by Terry Pratchett considered by those filmmakers that have the wherewithal to make the masterpiece?
Why, by creating that film treatment in what one hopes is a new and interesting way, putting it on YouTube so that thousands of hopefully soon-to-be-adoring fans can see it, and will get together a petition to say, "Yes, buy the rights of Thud! from Terry Pratchett, use this screenplay written by this woman, and use the actors she chooses, and make this movie!
Here's the opening scene of the movie. I'll be uploading new scenes on a regular basis until finally the entire masterpiece is complete.
