Thoughts on Howard Original
Thoughts – Howard Original is a comedy that will take a look at the movie making process from the early stages through the eyes of a screenwriter trying to get their vision across to people, be it getting the words on the paper, or have performers say the lines like they imagined it. This will highlight just how determined writers will have to be to make their work seen by the audience and how they want it their way, while showing us the other side of life, what it can take out of people. The deeper side to what has been happening to Howard is filled with the struggles of life. The performances through the film are strong, with the truly funniest scenes being the castings, which bring a different approach to the same scenes.
