Title: GBU script interest thread.....
Post by: Jordan Krug on February 19, 2007, 11:44:46 AM
Hey guys, as some of you know, I have an original GBU continuity script. It's basically a shot for shot translation of the film, but it does yield some interesting details throughout, like character names etc. It's a great piece of memorablia for lovers of the film (like all of us).

Anyways, what I'd like to proposition is this, if there's enough interest (reply to the thread if you're interested), I'd be willing to either (a) make a digital pdf version (fairly cheaply), or (b) make paper copies (much more expensive, especially since the paper is a very odd long size (longer and slightly wider than legal paper).

In order to protect my original investment (but certainly not make any profit, I would still be at a "loss"), there would have to be at least 15 people for the pdf, maybe 10 for the paper version (either or, not both)....for the pdf (digital delivery), I think $10.00 is fair, for paper copies I'd have to get a price from a copy store, and then there would be the issues of shipping etc....of course, once I send the pdf out, it can be distributed freely etc, which is why I'd like to set the minimum at 15 people, I assume at that point the 15 might be reluctant to send it out for free to others, but at that point it's their choice (people can pool their buy fee as well I guess). For the money transfer, I'd hope to use paypal.

Mods, if selling here is against the rules, I apologize, please let me know, again, I'm trying to find a way to share this while recouping some of my original outlay for the script. 

Thanks,

Jordan Krug

Thanks, sounds like a nice offer. I would certainly be interested in a pdf copy (or paper copy if that is the preferable option).
Cheers,

Since I'm not being besieged with responses - lets say 10 people for the .pdf @ $10.00 and I'll go forward with this project....I'll give it a couple of weeks for 10 to sign up....

I'd go for a paper copy.

I'd go for a paper copy.

I guess we'll see how many are interested in a paper copy (keep in mind that it's going to be more expensive (odd size paper x like 200 pages +binding + shipping)...if you guys would like paper copies, than I'll set that up (and get a bulk quote), but obviously I don't want it to seem like I'm charging huge amounts for this....

Was digging through the archives and stumbled upon this thread.

Jordan, did you ever end up making a pdf copy of your script? I'm very keen on acquiring a copy.

My apologies for bumping such an old thread, but I was wondering if there was any chance of reviving this offer. I would love to get hold of a copy of this script and would be happy to pay for one hopefully at least a few other members feel the same way!

Hmm, indeed an old topic, but still: I would love to get my hands on a pdf copy......Is there still an offer somewhere out there?

I am interested in a pdf version.

We might have 10 people by 2023  ;D

Or if we each offer to pay a little more, maybe we won't need that many people. Let's pay whatever it takes to make this happen :)

I'm all for it! So Mr Jordan Krug, if you're still out there......I think we have at least 5 people how would like a pdf copy......
If you're still willing to produce a pdf, just let us know the cost!

Thanks in advance!

Wow, old thread! Hi everyone, I will look into the cost of doing a pdf, the last time I checked it was actually a lot more expensive than copying the paper, but I'm willing to check again. If anyone knows of a cheap service or an easy technological way to make it happen please feel free to let me know...ideas are welcome.

Great, thanks Jordan. Whatever's the easiest  way and works out the best for everyone.  O0

Bumping this old thread, Jordan. Reading Peter's book got me re-interested. Can we make this script pdf happen?  :)

I downloaded the dialog in Word in 2006, more than the maximum characters allowed here.  Is there any way to upload a Word file here (125MB) ?

Is a copy of the original script? Or did some nutty fan just type up the dialogue as he watched the movie?
