My thoughts for the project came mostly from modern media. London for example, represents most young celebutantes. I got the inspiration for Peter from the boy in the movie UP. All of our characters are based on the stereotype of a character already made out of a stereotype. Our characters are multi-dimensional however. We didn’t want the characters and the plot to be too corny; we thought that adding depth to them might also add depth to our story and therefore making it more enjoyable and more real to the audience. The way Laryn acted was based off soldiers from movies and people that play games to seriously, and we got the idea of him not being able to join the army because of a physical problem from the movie little miss sunshine. I also used experience playing online for his flash back to a Call of Duty game. As for the video game rehab place, I thought about what a drug or alcohol rehab place might look like and used that for the design of the place. The group session thing was based off various support groups that are out there, like AA. As far as the story goes, Lora came up with the original idea so I’m not sure what her though process on creating it was. Alex and I while writing the treatment, added our own twists to make the story less serious but keeping some of the depth. Now I know that our story is still pretty cheesy but that was also part of our idea. We wanted a story that seemed like something people had seen before but with a twist. It’s not quite a farce but its also not a drama. It is serious and comical at the right parts, and is all together a little odd, just like our characters.


DANIEL PATTERSON a well-dressed man in his early thirties pulls angrily into a Best Buy parking lot in his BMW sedan. He slams the door shut and beeps the lock as he walks inside. Once inside he flicks off the door greeter who tries to give him a coupon. He goes straight to the Wii section and starts forcefully playing a game of Wii Tennis. A young boy around age eight walks over starts to watch Daniel play. Daniel, who is oblivious to the child, continues to rant about his day while playing. The boy takes a step forward to say something but Daniel does not notice and slams him in the face with the Wiimote. Daniel is standing in front of a Judge who sentences him to 14 days of Video Game Rehabilitation. Daniel’s head falls onto the table. Daniel, holding his tray of food, looks around the cafeteria for an empty seat, there is only one. He sits down at a table with four other people.PETER, a young boy about 8 wearing a Starwars tee-shirt, LONDON, a bleach blonde celebutant, LOONY LARYN, a army wanna-be wearing various forms of camouflage, and ABBY, a young attractive a high school algebra teacher. They introduce themselves to him one by one, he is very despondent and uninterested. They ask him what he’s in for, he explains it was a misunderstanding. They all claim he is in denial, like they were, which annoys him even more. The next day Daniel is sitting in the lounge with a business magazine. London enters the room flirtatiously and explains to Daniel that he should over come his addiction to video games with another addiction. Daniel for the most part ignores her. Bored she leaves. Next Peter and Laryn enter with a game of Scrabble and ask Daniel to play. He rudely tells him to get lost. Abby hears the last comment and explains to Jim that the people in the center are fragile and need a lot of support. After she leaves Jim laughs to himself. In group session the next day London is in tears because her farther sent a letter in which he threatens to write her out of the Will if she does not get better this time. She explains that he always loved her sisters more and that’s why she has such an addictive personality. Peter admits to everyone that he has never had a friend except his video games. Laryn tells everyone his dream was to be in the army but they wouldn’t take him because he’s legally blind in one eye. He started playing Call of Duty everyday and now he thinks that is his real life. Abby is last and tells the group that two years before he fiancé died and to be close to him she always played video games but now she is ready to get her life back.


In the cafeteria they are all talking and having a nice conversation when Jim, a large muscular man who looks like he could have just walked out of prison, comes and sits down with them, claiming he is new. He makes fun of Laryns outfit and Peter stands up for him. This makes Peter the butt of Jims jokes the rest of lunch, and Peter leaves crying. Abby and London chase after him. Daniel tells Jim he needs to cool it these people have a lot going on, and Jim just shrugs it off. In the hallway Jim hits on London and tries to get her in the room by offering drugs. She claims she cant mess up again and tries to walk away as Daniel comes and hears Jim make a remark about a alleged sex tape London was in. Daniel tells London to go to her room, and Jim threatens him. A few days later in the cafeteria Abby is in the lunch line with London and Jim comes and grabs her ass. She protests and tries to get away, and Jim grabs her and leans forward to wispier something disrespectful to her and reaches under her skirt. Daniel hears her scream and push’s him away from her. Jim claims that’s the last straw and punches him to the floor. Security comes and takes Jim away, everyone claps. A few hours later during group session Daniel talks for the first time in group and sincerely apologizes this time about how he did not treat them well. He tells them about how he quit his job because they would not give him more money and now he knows he was just being selfish. He tells them that they are all great people and that they gave him more then money ever could.

1 EXT. BEST BUY PARKING LOT - DAY

1

A red BMW sedan speeds into the packed parking lot of Best Buy and swerves into a parking spot. The car door swings open, hitting the car parked next to it and DANIEL PATTERSON, a well-dressed man in his early thirties, climbs out and slams the door shut. He angrily walks towards the doorway and cuts across the parking lot, walking in front of a moving car which quickly stops before it hits him and honks as he storms by and into the Best Buy. 2 INT. BEST BUY - DAY

Daniel stomps into the store, and a BEST BUY GREETER holds out a pamphlet for him. Daniel responds with his middle finger as he walks by. He moves over to the DVDs, when he stops and sees a Nintendo Wii set up for a Wii Sports tennis match. He walks over and picks up the controller, and starts to play. As he plays he gets really aggressive with his swings and mumbles things angrily under his breath. His skill attracts the attention of a little BOY who starts to come closer to watch, whom Daniel does not notice is coming to him. So as Daniel swings back he hits the kid in the face with the Wii remote on accident, causing the kid to fall down and Daniels face to turn pale. 3 INT. COURT ROOM - DAY Daniel is seen in filled court room, sitting down in the defendants spot. The JUDGE slams down his gavel as the scene begins and Daniel stands. JUDGE It is time for the final verdict, for charges of misdemeanor battery,I find the defendant, Daniel Patterson, guilty. For your sentence I think the best place for you is rehab for your clear addiction. DANIEL Wait, what addiction? JUDGE Your awful video game addiction. Someone that gets into a game so much that he would hit a child just to win is clearly an addict. For this, I sentence you to 14 days in video game rehab. Court adjourned.

The Judge bangs his gavel once more as Daniel head falls onto the table in defeat. 4 INT.VIDEO GAME REHABILITATION CENTER(VGRC) CAFETERIA-DAY 4 Daniel stands at the end of a lunch line looking very annoyed. He scans the small Cafeteria for a place to sit, and notices a only one table with a few open chairs. He walks up to it to see PETER, a young boy about 8 years old wearing a Star wars t-shirt, LONDON, a bleach blonde woman in her 20s, LOONY LARYN, a man in his 30s wearing various forms of camouflage, and ABBY, a young attractive woman in her early 30s.

ABBY So are you new here? DANIEL Yes. ABBY Oh great, its always nice to have a new person around here. Whats your name?

PETER (cont’d) Dan? I don’t know because I like Peter not Pete, but I know people some Peters like Pete which I don’t get, its really strange what some people like you know? Like some people like gross stuff which is weirdDANIEL (interrupting quickly) Um, yeah, nobody cares. LONDON (bored) He’s kinda got a point there. Daniel glances over at London and starts to squint. DANIEL Hey, you look familiar, Do I know you from somewhere? LONDON I’m London Marriott. DANIEL Wait, as in like the daughter to J. Willard Marriott of Marriott hotels? Why are you here? LONDON You didn’t see online? That surprises me, It was all over TMZ. Well I was arrested by an undercover cop who was selling me illegal shipments of games in an alleyway. Good games too, fresh from Japan. My dad payed them off, but he still made me go here. It really sucks too, I am running out of things fast to be addicted too. DANIEL I really fail to see how that "sucks", but I really don’t care enough to find out. Daniel looks over at the last person at the table, Layrn, and realizes he has not been paying attention this whole time, and looks like he was carefully scanning the area.

DANIEL Okay, I have to ask, whats up with that guy? ABBY (looks over) Oh, hes just looking for snipers. DANIEL (Sarcastically) Oh yeah, Of course! Because that’s sane. ABBY Well, you see the thing about Laryn is he’s a little, how do I say thisLONDON I got this, He’s a grade A nut, we call him Loony Laryn. ABBY Don’t listen to herDANIEL (interrupting) Yeah, don’t worry I already wasn’t. Abby pretends not to hear him and continues. ABBY He’s just a little eccentric at times. So Daniel, Why are you here? DANIEL I really don’t know, I don’t have an addiction, and especially not to video games. PETER Come on, open up, you don’t have to stay in denial. DANIEL No really, I am not in denial. LONDON Come on, just claim that you have a problem, that’s what I do to get out of rehabs, just go along with it tell they let you out.

(CONTINUED)


CONTINUED:

5. ABBY London, please don’t make this worse. Daniel, its fine. You can keep thinking that, you’ll see you actually have a problem eventually like all of us did on your own time. DANIEL (getting annoyed) Okay, please listen to me, I don’t have a problem, it was a mistake that I got in here in the first place. ABBY I’m sure it was. Its fine. But were be here to support you when your ready.

Daniel now looks extremely annoyed with her. DANIEL ...You know what? If you guys are going to be like this and not listen to me, I think I can just eat standing up. Daniel get up and leaves 5 INT. VGRC LOUNGE - DAY

Daniel is sitting down reading a business magazine after lunch when London walks in. Daniel sees London but does not stop looking at his magazine. DANIEL What do you want? LONDON (nonchalantly) Well I was really bored so I was wondering if you wanted to have sex. Daniel lowers his magazine and looks really surprised and confused at her really out of place forwardness to him. DANIEL ...What? That was really out of nowhere, I like literally just met you like two hours ago.

(CONTINUED)

6.

LONDON What are you talking about? I know you a lot better then I know lots of other people I have done it with, like I know your name for instance. DANIEL Yeah, I can pretty easily say that no, I do not wish to do it with you. LONDON (sighs) Your no fun. She turns to leave, but then turns back LONDON Oh yeah, I just remembered Abby told me to help you out. DANIEL Oh, well you really don’t have too. And by that I mean please don’t. LONDON Well just hear me out, I really do have some helpful advice. What I have learned to get over addictions is to just find another addiction, and let that consume your life instead. DANIEL That, may be, the worst advice ever. In the history of man kind. LONDON Whatever, at least I can honestly say to Abby I tried. She turns away again and leaves, and as she leaves Layrn and Peter come in. PETER (talking fast) Hey, we brought scrabble, its the game we play when we get stressed. Like this one time I really wanted to play games, and was all freaking out, but then I started playing this and I was all "This is fun!". (MORE) (CONTINUED)


CONTINUED:

7.

PETER (cont’d) You know what else is fun? Mario, but we can’t play that here becauseDANIEL Okay, first of all, shut up. Second, I’m really stressed, I don’t think a game will help me. LARYN Stress? Pain? You know nothing about them. You have not lived through what I have. Laryn looks off into the distance like he is remembering something horrible. LARYN You have not seen the horrors of war that I have seen. One time sticks out in my mind, a fight that seemed just like any other fight. DANIEL Look, I reallyLARYN But I was wrong, dead wrong. They where just setting us up. And we did not realize it tell the first sniper shot was fired, and my best friend went down. I yelled to my men to move, but only I was fast enough to get away from the sniper, but it was not enough, I soon realized his men had surrounded me, and I fell from a head shot. On the floor, I could see the man that shot me run up and stand over my head. As I died, All I could see is his crotch moving up and down over my head. That image still haunts my dreams. DANIEL That’s- wait a minute, died? Was... was that a game of call of duty? Have you ever actually even been in a war?

(CONTINUED)


CONTINUED:

8.

LAYRN Oh, yes, I have been in to many wars to count. World war 2, Vietnam, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and that hypothetical war where Germany attacked the US home front during World war 2. DANIEL Okay, so I take that as a no. Thanks for wasting two minutes of my life. You know what guys, if you want to lower my stress, just leave. I think that would do wonders for it. Peter looks really hurt and runs out, and Layrn goes after him. Abby walks in after him and looks at Daniel annoyed. DANIEL Really? Is this bug the hell out of Daniel time? ABBY Oh, no, someone is bugging Daniel, what a surprise. Look, I understand your new, but come on, Peter is 8 years old. You can’t you be little nicer? DANIEL Look, I’ll apologize okay, I just need some time to myself at times. ABBY And that’s fine, I just want you to realize you are not the center of attention, the people in the center are fragile and need a lot of support too. Abby walks out of the room. 6 INT. GROUP SESSION-DAY

The characters are in a medium sized room with inspirational posters on the walls. They sit in a large circle there are at least 10 people in the group including a female LEADER. Daniel is in a relaxed position. London is missing.

LEADER Alright everyone let’s get started. Daniel this is your first session so feel free to just listen and take it all in...has anyone seen London? (They group mumbles negatives) Hmm, well I guess let’s start with out her. (shakes her head,disappointed) Ok, Jeremy why don’t you start us off you can finish you story from last time. A small man, JEREMY, stands and starts to speak JEREMY Well as you all remember from last time, starting from about age ten I had to be fed by my mother while gaming or I would have died of starvation... Daniel rolls his eyes JEREMY Now I know you’re all thinking, how did Jeremy go to the bathroom... At that moment London bursts into the room with a lot of mascara running down her face holding a letter in her hand. Jeremy looks annoyed. LONDON I’m so sorry! I just... She looks at the letter and around at everyone, clearly torn. Unable to speak she continues to cry. LEADER London, it’s okay. Sit down and tell us what’s happened. Jeremy starts to protest LEADER Oh...right well I think...we will umm...I think we’ve heard enough from you today Jeremy. There’s a sigh of relief throughout the room. London.

10. LEADER Ok now why are you so upset London? LONDON (Between sobs) I..just...got...this...letter...from...my dad...and (Abby pats her back) he says that if I don’t finish this program and get better then...then..he’s going to write me out of the will! LEADER And why do you think that is? LONDON (Clearly reciting what she’d been told) Because I’m "addictive to the point of destructiveness" LEADER But why London?

London is too upset to speak, Laryn stands. LARYN I...uh...failed the psych test LEADER I’m sorry, what? LARYN I couldn’t enlist because I didn’t pass the psych exam. LEADER um...ok LARYN So I started playing Call of Duty. All day, everyday. That’s what’s wrong with me, it’s ok London you don’t have to be afraid... PETER Can I go next???? LEADER Well I suppose...this isn’t really what I had planned for the session but it seems to be working. (CONTINUED)


CONTINUED:

11. PETER London, its Ok for you to tell us why you’re so sad because I’m sad too. At my school I don’t have that many friends... LEADER Is that why you started gaming? (Peter nods his head) LONDON Ok I think I’m ready now...It’s my dad. (The tears come) When I was younger he always had a new girlfriend and he was always like away on like business and stuff....and he left me alone with the girlfriends and the au pairs. When I got older he, said I was old enough to take care of myself so I was alone like all the time. To get his attention I would do bad things and when he it didn’t help I would keep doing them. When it got like really bad he would send me to a rehab. Once I was out it would start all over again, so I kept doing it over and over and over again. When that video came out he threated to kick me out for good, this place was my last resort.

London has completely broken down by this point she is revealing information she has never let herself understand before. LEADER London, maybe see me after session and we will see about setting up a meeting with your fater to work this out. (London nods) Alright well I think thats enough sharing for... ABBY (quietly) Excuse me, I’m sorry. But I didn’t get to speak yet. Everyone is has their full attention on Abby, even Daniel. Until this point it was unknown to all of the patients why Abby was in Gaming Regab. (CONTINUED)

12.

LEADER Well by all means go ahead. ABBY ok...umm, I don’t know where to start... PETER The beginning! ABBY (Laughs) Yes, you’re right Peter, the beginning. Two years ago...my...uh (This is hard for her) my boyfriend proposed to me, we’d been living together for about a year so of course I said yes. We started planning right away, the wedding was planned for June. Everynight when I came home from work he would cook dinner for me and we would eat and talk about the wedding. After I would grade papers while he played his video games. One night I came home early to surprise him and cook dinner myself. I waited for him all night, around midnight I got a call from the hospital they told me that...my fiance...my Andy (here come the tears) ...was dead. He’d died in a running with scissors incident at work, he never evven saw it coming. (sobbing) LEADER Abby do you want to stop? Abby shakes her head ABBY No, no I’m fine. So afterwards, I tried as hard as I could to feel better I got new hobbies and friends I focused on my job more. And it worked. After about 6 months I almost felt normal again, until one day I realized that I couldn’t imagine his face. I was furious with myself! I’d spent all of this time making myself feel (MORE) (CONTINUED)

13.

ABBY (cont’d) better I’d completely forgotten about him! (speeding up) I tried to think what I could do to fix what I’d done, how could I remember him? And then it hit me...video games, I started that very night and I never stopped. Even in the room is speechless, Daniel is in awe at what he has heard from these people. The Leader is the first to gain composure LEADER Ok! That’s all for today, thank you everyone for sharing, I’m sure we’ve all make London feel better. Abby why don’t you stay after a little and we’ll have a talk ok? Abbys nods, embarrassed. emotional.

I know it’s not your mom’s meat loaf or a McRib, but it should help fill the void in your fat sausage casing of a body. Peter grabs a handful of food off the plate and runs out. ABBY I cannot believe you just to an eight year old. You more help than this place offer. (Exits running after

said that need far has to Peter)

London is walking down the empty hallway when she is startled by Jim popping out from behind a white door leading into a dark office. JIM Hey. LONDON Jesus! You scared me. JIM How are you? You look like you could use a good time. LONDON Tell me about it. Jim dangles a plastic bag containing a small white pills. LONDON (Hesitates) I-I can’t. My dadJIM Daddy don’t have to know. LONDON (Firmly this time) I can’t. I can’t afford to mess up again. I’m sick of screwing up all the time. (Turns to walk away) Daniel comes from around the corner. JIM From what I’ve seen online you like a messy screw. London looks hurt. DANIEL (Temper flaring, but says restrained) London, go to your room.

Abby and London are waiting in the lunch line. Daniel is ahead helping Laryn with his food because Laryn is busy interrogating the lunch lady. Abby scoops an unsettling looking ice cream scoop of ground beef on her tortilla, while London watches nauseously. Jim now shaved with a creepy thin mustache comes from behind and grabs London’s ass. JIM Do you think your little Chihuahua wants to nibble on my chalupa? LONDON Ok, it is one thing for you to make your perverted little remarks, but do not talk about my chihuahua. Jim pulls her towards him. She screams. LARYN (Shouts) Everybody get down! There confusion in the cafteria. Everyone gets down, including the staff, except Jim who looks startled, London, and Daniel. Daniel pushes Jim off London. JIM That’s it you son of a whore! (Savagely punches Daniel to the floor and begins a teabagging motion over him)

Daniel looks up at Jim’s teabagging and spits blood out of his mouth. Security then rushes in, with Laryn in the lead, and sideswipes Jim into the buffet. Everybody claps. Abby runs over to Daniel and kneels beside him. ABBY Holy shit. Are you okay? DANIEL (Looking dizzy) Yeah, I’m terrific. (Passes out) 10 INT. GROUP SESSION-DAY

The groups members are in the same room they were in before, nothing has changed except a few of the patients have left the programs and are replaced with new faces. Daniel sits next to Abby. LEADER Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing alright this afternoon. In light of recent events I have a special activ... Daniel cuts her off. DANIEL (stands) I’m sorry, but can I just say one thing before we start? LEADER Yes of course Daniel, it’s nice to hear you speak. DANIEL Ok, I just wanted you let all of you know that...when I first got here I didn’t believe all of this crap about addiction and video games and support. When I got fired it was my fault. Wow, I’ve never siad those words before...but it was, I was greedy and I wanted more more more and when I couldn’t have it I crossed the line and I got myself fired. But you all have made me change my mind about all of that. You all stand by each other, like Laryn, since you and Peter (MORE) (CONTINUED)

18.

DANIEL (cont’d) started hanging out I’ve hardly seen you scouting in the cafeteria! And now you’ve both got a friend who likes the same things you do and doesn’t think you’re a freak! Peter and Laryn smile. DANIEL London you’ve come so far with your recovery, you didn’t give into Jim’s temptations! We’re all so proud of you. And Abby, Abby...you are the kindest and most supportive person I have ever known, I think that everyone one of them owes part of their recovery to you. And so do I, to everyone. Thank you. He goes back to his seat, as the Leader starts talking Abby reaches over and grabs the top of Daniels hand. Not necessarily in a romantic way, more of a supportive friend.


Daniel is a classic business man, you will usually find him in a fitted suit and tie. He doesn’t care much about brands, but he doesn’t mind spending money to look good. So on his days off or while spending time in rehab Daniel wants to be comfortable. Like his business attire he wears mostly neutrals, blues, grays, and blacks. Because he’s used to spending money on clothes he wears expensive jeans from The Buckle and sweatshirt from American Apparel. His shoes, Diesel, are also not cheap. The only thing he saved money on was the Duke t-shirt that he got on sale. He’s a big Duke fan, hence why no one really likes him.


London is your classic celebutante she wears expensive designer clothes and is not afraid to show off the labels. Hence the Chanel, Gucci and Dolce and Gabbana necklace, sunglasses, and boots . However, since she’s in rehab she goes a little more subtle with the BCBG stripped shirt and legging combo. She tops it off with a Bebe sweater because it get’s cold in that place, but she can’t wear just any cardigan
