The idea of ‘mythological inversions’ lies at the heart of ‘The Fugitive Stag’ – a ScreenplayPLUS …

Medb’s EpiphanyMedusa’s Apocalypse

Although Medb was not part of my original story, which goes back many a decade, when she did appear, in the mid noughties, it wasn’t to be later on in Guy’s adventure (as I had planned), where she would travel with him to the finale, but at the very beginning, when she would be decapitated after a few minutes of appearing on screen!

I was devastated.

I didn’t want her to be killed off at the start, and ‘fought’ the idea for about a year.

Then I realized that writing the story of the fugitive stag was more that ‘just a story.’

It was the story of a shamanic initiation into the mystery of Goddess.

She became the Patroness of my project, the creative flow, the life-blood, that weaves its way through the story of my ‘cervus fugitivus’ from beginning to end.

YES! THERE IS A TALENTED DIRECTOR ‘OUT THERE, SOMEWHERE’ WHO WILL HELP ME BRING MY FUGITIVE STAG TO THE SCREEN …

PLEASE SHARE … AND HELP ME FIND HER OR HIM.
