Well from March 10 to May 4, life hit me pretty hard. Have a new baby that's exciting. And stressful. The pandemic has been great, too. Hope you're all doing very well.

So in regards to the script: Part 1 sucks noodles and I'm scrapping it. We need more character development, and I think the primary characters to focus on are the Spartan Kurt, and the Marines on the flight with him in part 2.

I'm thinking of starting Kurt right around the time he's accepted into Blue Team, while also including a scene where he's speaking to a therapist about some PTSD he's struggling with. Both of those things add an emotional connection to relate to, and are stressful/life changing events.

But what do you guys think? Are there any ideas out there? How would you most closely relate in this situation?

Sean Anwalt sounds like you've been leading an exciting life! Glad to hear you're still kickin though :)

I've not been involved in this project yet, but if it's open to 405th I'd be interested at peeping the script and then offering some thoughts about how I might relate to it if you like. I donno where I'd find it though, didn't find a link in this thread.

I gave it a quick read and agree to start from where you are saying. If you don't want to totally scrap previous parts and want to do a "greatest hits" of those ideas, you can use his PTSD/ therapist visit to allow for flashbacks to give further context, short clips work well for this. Just enough to lend background without having to draw things out and slow story progress.
