Film Idea: Clip Clop⁠ A tap dancer on his cigarette break witnesses a murder, now he must go on the noisiest run for his life.⁠ ⁠ Film Idea: Pants Day A man is committed to spend the day in his pants even though the lion has escaped from the zoo and a killer is on the loose.⁠ ⁠ After getting a retweet from American comedian Rob Delaney regarding a fart joke (something Rob Delaney may well not remember) Babak Ganjei woke up to find a number of film producers from Los Angeles following him. Sensing an opportunity somewhere, anywhere, over the next five years Babak used Twitter to pitch film ideas, sadly to no avail. So unfortunately you won’t find any of the many script ideas at the recent Berlinale. But maybe these absurd and comical streams of consciousness are not meant for the silver screen. Maybe they unfold their full power, their random creativity, their hopeless search for the big breakthrough, their uncovering of the workings of the movie business best in a notebook format.⁠ Curious what other brilliant minds have published their work within the Rough Trade Edition?
