1. Read Homer's Odyssey.
- List the Episodes.
2. Set the Action in your own town/ city in the Present.
- Choose from the Episodes those which serve your purposes - thinking about Locations.
Think of Walter Hill's The Warriors.
Don't be put off by Joyce - you can tell this story in Bergmanesque individual drama (Chamber Films) - reducing the cast to a minimum.
Could this be a story of the protagonist meeting his Past/ Present/ Future over the journey?
If you live in London what if this is a story of Gangs - across or of a single Ethnicity/ Gender/ Age group?
