Josh brings in one of his banked short film drafts, Maxx writes an introduction for an efficient criminal, and Liam writes about a girl and a burned-down house. Afterwards, we discuss diction and clarity, and our trailer ends up being a movie that will never be made, but that everyone secretly wants.
