This is a feature length script I wrote in Nov. 2014. It’s a ghost story, written for low budget, but of course could go big budget.

Property Manager Logline:

Fed up apartments Property Managers, this married couple chooses to manage a self-storage building of historical value instead, but, the ghost of Greta will haunts the couple until they give up or fight back.

Synopsis:
Married couple Steve and Erin have been property managers of apartment buildings long enough to know they are tired of dealing whining, complaining residents. They chose to switch positions and look into managing self-storage complex instead, thinking it will be quieter and easier than the headaches they have now. After several interviews, some rejections and a couple offers, the married couple choses to manager the historical building downtown, mostly because of its charm and nicer living space.
The old building has quiet the history, as it was once a thriving business in its day. But the business took a nasty turn when an older lady, Greta, dies during an argument with her boss. Soon after Greta’s death the company lost its good reputation and the business finally closed its doors and remained empty, until the storage company purchased it at an auction and renovated it to become a self-storage complex.
Now, after losing several on-site managers and struggling to keep the storage complex going the regional manager, Manny has hired Steve and Erin to run the place. Confident they have what it takes to keep the business afloat, Manny leaves on a well-deserved vacation. What he doesn’t know, is he’s leaving Steve and Erin with the ghost of Greta, who has chased out all the other managers. But with no money and nowhere to go, Steve and Erin must stay and find a way to fight back against Greta’s attacks. After all the physical abuse from Greta, this determined team finds a way to capture and release Greta with the help of her grandson Sven and get her out of the building and prove Manny was right in choosing them.

This is a hilarious feature length screenplay that is sure to become a classic.

 

TITLE: Early Retirement

Genre: Comedy

Written By: Philip Webb, Tinamarie Forbes and Cathi Iafrate

Log line: Plagued by medical issues, a young couple revitalizes a ritzy retirement home after conning their way past the suspicious and vindictive manager.

 

Some Analysis Feedback from BlueCat Contest:

Reader #8099 says; The characters and plot of this slapstick comedy are reminiscent of the characters and unlikely scenarios in the television series “I Love Lucy”!

Reader #8094 says; The screenplay is very fun, whimsical, and full of lighthearted humor which is very entertaining to read.

  

Synopsis: Based on some true events. Tinamarie and Phoenix Wives, are in their mid 30’s and have been living in cramped apartments in the surrounding towns of historical Charleston, South Carolina.

Phoenix a somewhat nervous, stay at home husband that was born with a lung disease and on disability, which doesn’t pay much.

Tinamarie is quick witted, blunt, former model that smokes and works at her best friend’s boutique store downtown Charleston.

The Wives dream about living downtown in the fashion and art district, however it is just too expensive. That’s where they get the idea to try and move into the luxury Washington Retirement Center right smack in the middle of downtown.

Antony is sneaky, whiny, by the book and is the latest family member to manager the retirement center. He’s loathed by the residents and will soon go through physical and mental abuse to prove the Wives are lying about their age and send them to jail.

After months of investigating the Wives, Ant has all the evidence he needs. However, at his climax of busting the Wives, he blurts out about breaking the Law. He suddenly finds himself scooping poop as the Wives take over as the newest managers.

Hello again.

This is just a quick post to try and get the word out about the online fund raising site.
http://www.gofundme.com/Philipwebb

We’re still a long way to go to help us with medical costs and living expenses.
Right now we are in need of moving out of our current apartment because it is not suitable or practical for me to be able to recover. Also it’s hard for me to go up and down all the stairs now and the air quality isn’t the best, being on a major road and near a highway.

Won’t you help and pass this along.  It will truly be a blessing!

Sincerely and God Bless,
Philip & Tinamarie
