Feature Film Scripts
Genre: Spiritual Thriller
Length: 93 pages
Logline: An atheist political presenter, live on TV, unknowingly predicts the Second Coming of Jesus within the week. Increasingly bizarre predictions, confirmed by others, following day by day, threaten her job, career, life, and the faith of billions.
Review: “Super premise, wonderfully timed so that it develops at a cracking pace. I found myself eagerly awaiting the next qualifier for The Messiah.
Super positive message, unlike so much of the dross out there. Ironically, this may well make it harder — not easier — to sell. Super compact to film. Really interesting plot and myriad sub plots/relationships that kept me interested and entertained.
I think your dialogue has really developed. Mostly, this was witty and believable. And it would get a TON of interest, with all the fundies protesting against it, just like Life of Brian!
I found the characterisations terrific.”
Kim Bidstrup, screenwriter, actor, filmmaker at www.4thmesaproductions.com

Review: “From someone who has spent years trying to write something ‘Simpsonesque’, I can vouch that Ed Love’s script is right on the money. Very funny, very clever, and great adapted source material. Bravo, Mr Ed! “
Rick Miller of MacHomer, his award winning one man Simpsons/MacBeth show.
“There’s no doubt you CAN write a screenplay- that I am most assured of. In fact, I think, overall, you are a better writer than I. As I said earlier, you ARE one helluva good writer.“
Geno Scala, optioned multiple contest winner at Shark Eating Man Productions.
“I have worked with Ed on a short film for Tropfest, and he with me on a professional shoot for a client. On each occasion Ed was passionate, dedicated and willing to learn new techniques and eager to achieve the best possible outcome. I have no doubt that if Ed’s passion for his calling, a willingness to learn and a creative mind are criteria for success in the film industry, Ed will be a leader in the field.”
