I got a Movie Idea if anyone would like to pick this up, the film is called Dead Voices. I can't shoot the film like I wanted due to some problems and I was hoping some one here would like to pick it up. I am going to write the Synopsis, you can change some of it if you like. If you do pick this up, please put my name some where in the credits. My name is Justin Mora, on Fx if put here I would like to have a contribution. Here is the Synopsis.

"Dead Voices"
Synopsis:
This film is about a man named, Samuel Johnson who starts hearing voices after the death of his Mother. His wife tells him to see some one, he keeps telling her no. During a storm his wife gets in a terrible car accident and dies, and he is all alone. He again starts hearing voices though his T.V. and he can't figure out what it is. He wakes up in the middle of the night to a sound of screaming coming from his T.V. as he looks at the T.V. it breaks and he looks back to figure out what had just happened. Two days later he starts hearing voices from his stereo and this time he understands who it is, "Samuel!, Samuel!". He runs to his room and starts crying knowning that he heard something he should have not. He go's back to the radio and they start commuinicating (You can make up there Communication). (Add anything you want before this point). He is tried and has messed up hair and is sweating. He had just gone though a very bad dream. He grabs a gun from under his bed and says "I can't take this anymore". He gets ready to pull the trigger, Boom the film ends. A saying comes up " Dont always communicate with the dead, It makes it worse in the end"

Ok thanks for reading it I hope anyone picks it up and if you do Thanks in Advance!.

ya but no in that sense
They are just trying to communicate with him.
If you are trying to figure out about what, I cant tell you only the person who picks it up and starts shooting it can. That person can make up the reason why, cause there is a reason they are communicating with him. It ends up with him killing himself though.

The film has its basis off White Noise but I made this up before I saw the film.
So anyone want to pick it up, thanks for the poster but it has nothing to do with the film. Static means the voices.

It even has a variation of the name. White Static is a different way to say White Noise.

Oh the name is now Dead Voices. That still doesn't make the plot any more original.

Ya but if you see white noise again it wasnt much on his wife's death, it was trying to help others which this movie is not about. Like said it is about in a quick write. Samuel like known losing both his mom and wife and starts hearing there voices, and starts communitcating with them, until it makes him crazy, Um sound like white noise No!.

Despite the former name and coincedences, this movie idea is actually a LOT more like Frequency than White Noise. Frequency. That movie as so awesome...Jesus talked to his dad over a radio from the past...wink

Jim Caveziel catches a frequency from the past, and saves his dad (Dennis Quaid) from dying, thus changing the future. (All during a cold case he's solving on his end, while his dad tries to stop it on the other)

Ok overs and overs again compared to white noise so every movie that has some kind of dead people communicating with each other now has to be compared to white noise. Just because its one of those rare movies out there, dosnt have to be compared. Shit ya do alot of movies insipired by The Matrix and other films. This was not soley inspired by white noise, like I said I wrote this before I saw White Noise, I have seen frequency maybe I got my Idea for this from that film. Thanks ben3308 for seeing that out.
