Wow, thank you so much for starting this thread! I wanted to submit, but was wondering if I was on the right track or not. What perfect timing!
Here’s my pitch:
Night Owls is a mood — the hushed yet momentous feeling that strikes when you’re having a one-one-one conversation at three in the morning. It features the philosophical ramblings of an A-student named Charlie, who’s watching her life crumble before her eyes. As well, it features those of a drunk, insomnia-ridden FtM trans man named Louis whose life crumbled when he was just a kid. The hope is to chart the development of Louis and Charlie over the course of four conversations, as Louis looks for his estranged mother, and Charlie deals with a dead mother and loss of purpose. It’s a slice-of-life college drama, broken up into four distinct chapters, each roughly 22 minutes long. Each of these chapters will revolve around one night’s conversation — each night taking place roughly two weeks after the last one.
