    This seems like a very cool idea. I enjoyed it very much, and could see it all playing out in my head.

    I like the idea of someone trying to explain color, when all they've ever seen is black and white. Seems like it would be quite difficult.

    I'd be very interested in seeing this actually on film. It's kind of like pleasantville with a fantasy twist on it.

    I'd love to see the rest of this, so post it when it's finished!

    Talk to you later poe, and good job on this.

    No, I haven't. I'll check it out.

    it's weird, but interesting... i see two major problems though...

    the first is that you can't legally adapt someone else's work without their permission...

    second is that it's not quite proper screenwriting style and format...

    i mentor lots of aspiring screenwriters, so if you want some help, format guide, etc., just drop me a line...

    love and hugs, maia
