Private Project

Lost & Found

While searching for a new TV a heartbroken comedian
rediscovers his laugh.
After having a vivid dream where he was on a date with his ex
Zack wakes up in his empty depressing apartment. Zack’s start
to his day but that doesn’t go too well. The few things that
are left in his apartment seem to remind him of his ex. He
attempts to eat a healthy breakfast but just with his luck,
it gets ruined so he goes with the less healthy option.
Hoping to still enjoy his morning Zack goes to eat while
watching tv, quickly he realizes his ex took the tv in the
Zack is trying to make his way to the store to do a little
shopping & buy a new tv but his car is giving him trouble.
After a few slams, bangs, clanks, & curse words the car
starts. Unknowingly to him while shopping around the store
Zack’s attention keeps getting drawn towards this woman.
She’s just going throughout her day being her goofy self
jumping up to reach things on a high shelf, accidentally
bumping her cart into things, & knocking stuff over. Her
behavior brings out something we haven’t seen from Zack yet,
a smile.
After finishing up shopping Zack & his car are at odds again
this time the car wins & Zack is forced to call an Uber.
Coincidentally the Uber driver turns out to be the same goofy
woman that had his attention in the store. This phenomenal
woman isn’t scared to ask Zack “why do you look so sad” & for
some reason, he opens up to her. The two share a few laughs &
Zack seems like a whole new person. Zack builds up to
courage to ask her to come in & watch tv.

Writer Biography - Xavier Taylor

Currently, I'm a student at The Los Angeles film & I'm loving it. I come from an artistic family, everyone in my family can draw, paint, sculpt but me. I felt like art wasn't for me but I was always told I had a unique vision to share with the world. About 6 years ago I decided that unique vision should voice itself through Screenwriting. Once I wrapped my first script up I quickly realized I had no idea how to shoot a film, I decided to learn how & now we're here.
