Meet Griffin Harper From "Fugitive"!

A random snapshot during filming a scene for a previous GFP flick

Soooo I know I haven't posted here on the GFP blog for quite a while now.

I am fully aware of the fact that I've sort of neglected this poor little filmmaking blog, and sure y'all have noticed that too, at least, the few of you who have been following Filmmakers of the Next Generation.

We're thankful for you....all 2 of you. ;) I am just not that great at blog advertising and marketing/whatever you want to call it. That or this blog is just super boring. Oh well, either way.

Y'all who do read this blog? I'm thankful for you and would give you a big panda hug right now if I could.
Thanks for sticking with us. It really is appreciated.

Soooo, what was I going to say again.... Oh, yeah. The script excerpt.

A SCRIPT EXCERPT! Yes, for the first time, you guys will officially get a little taste of the project we're currently working on at GFP.

What exactly have we been working on? Well, actually two things. The first, which I won't go into extreme detail about, is a political film stressing the need to vote. Still working on the dialogue for that, and hoping to get that filmed really soon.

The other....well, that is the big one. Right now we're calling it "Fugitive", (thanks to Meredith's inspiration for titles) This is just the working title, nothing permanant or long term. You have to call your feature length film something other than "the long film". That's what working titles are for.

So anyways, yes, it's going to be a full length, hour long movie. And it's going to be a killer to finish.
Seriously, this is the biggest project we've taken on so far. There's a TON of work ahead here. But I am really looking forward to seeing how God blesses it.

So, here's a little excerpt of the raw, unedited, unpolished script we've put together so far, for your amusement/enjoyment. It's actually not the physical SCRIPT but it is in the script file so I think it counts as behind-the-scenes material. ;) There are two main families in Fugitive, the Harpers, and the Langstons.

Today, you get the description of one of the main characters between the two families.

Griffin Harper Oldest brother, of the Harper kids. He is forced to take the leader position among the two families during their antics of survival.  Is naturally decisive and organized, but tends to be insensitive and rash if he is not careful. Struggles with Rene’s(his sister) feistiness, the two have always had tension between each other. Maybe at some point struggles with the burdens of leadership and responsibility? Or maybe he must learn to have responsibility throughout the film. Constantly burdened with worrying over the safety of the others, can tend to be overly fearful for their sakes and must learn to lean on his Creator.  Age 17

That's the simple little intro/bio we have for Griffin's character right now. More of his personality unfolds in the actual film script, which eventually, we will uncover to the world in the form of an epic, action/thriller/drama movie.

What did you think? Do you have any ideas for new films we can make in the meantime? You know we'd love to hear, if you do. ALSO we have a new blog button! You can find it on the sidebar. Go ahead and grab one if you want, post it on your blog, website, wherever. That would just make our day.

Happy Thursday!


  1. Wow! SO exciting! A whole hour long...okay, I'll stop now ;)

    No, you don't know me, and I don't know you, but you may have seen me popping up around your various websites'll have to have "Silence Grulkey" introduce me! :D I'm just really interested in everything ya'll are doing :)

    Can't wait to see it when it's finished. And while I wish I had ideas for you...that's one thing I'm not awesome at. My ideas for the things I write come at very random times. If I do come up with any, I'll let you know!

    1. Oh, yes, "Silence" NEEDS to introduce us to eachother!
      So glad you have been enjoying the blog! Thanks!
