The first steps towards converting Seven Lucky Stars occurred a couple of nights ago. I’ve had to rewrite the opening as the original stage play took around five minutes for Edward, our main character, to appear on the scene. To start the film I’ve flash backed a few years previous and gone to the comedy club in which Edward is performing and John, the producer of the show, approaches him with the job offer for TV.
As such we can contrast the styled, brightly lit game show studio with the dirt and smoke of the club. I’m aiming for the same with Edward’s comedy style as well. For this reason our previously clean, smiling Edward on TV has been replaced by a man drinking on stage and starting a joke with “Me and the Wife tried a new sex position last night “.
