Development Pitch

Vejo este livro principalmente como uma série de TV. É uma história que começa com a descoberta do um objecto na Lua. A viagem de John à Lua para reaver o objecto e o toque no objecto. O aparecimento e as revelações da princesa AyeRas no plano Astral. O despertar da psiônica em John. As revelações dos pais de John provocando um twist nas suas crenças. Os Enihs habitantes do planeta Laydas com poderes psiônicos que foram massacrados por K'raan de raça Artnoc cuja tecnologia é avançadíssima. As incríveis revelações que são feitas a John, fazem com que se dê inicio a uma corrida contra o tempo para salvar o planeta Terra. O astrofísico Dr. Samuel, director do laboratório e a sua assistente perita em computação quântica, Doutora Pink, têm como missão desvendar os segredos do estranho objecto. Uma descoberta que dará a toda a humanidade a hipótese de dar o próximo passo na escadaria da evolução. O plano Astral e as capacidades psiônicas dos personagens fazem com que esta história seja deliciosamente viciante de seguir. O livro está escrito de uma maneira bastante teatral e acessível o que o torna facilmente adaptável a uma série televisiva. Uma viagem aos lugares mais recônditos da mente, onde John e a bela princesa AyeRas terão de superar as enormes dificuldades criadas por um poderoso inimigo, que tem como objectivo a destruição da humanidade. Uma história que explora temas reais que são pouco explorados mas que provocam uma imensa curiosidade a quem os observa.

Accuracy of Book Profile

The book profile reflects the book accurately.

Draw of Story

The sequence of facts - a door in the middle of the moon, a strange object allowing men to travel different dimensions - is highly improbable and the sequence of facts are, due to that, very intriguing. The unlikelihood of the sequences and the unforeseeable characters and scenarios are surprisingly enticing. The plot reminds us, as the title suggests, the absurdities and randomness of dreams - in which, while we're on them, we often follow along the logics, as absurd as they seem.

Possible Drawbacks

The names of characters make the narrative appear too random, as people from the same fiction core have names such as "Pink" and "Alexandria Latterman". Even if those names have meaning, they should have some more logic based on them as these are people in the same "dimension". The randomness of facts is both a weakness and a strength, as it makes you think nothing is logical at the same time it keeps the reader intrigued.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES HEAVILY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

An inclination for fantasy and the exploration of a mystic logic, triggered by the world of dreams we don't completely understand and outer space adventures is a rich subject that would make me watch this movie.

Fanbase Potential

If adapted and backed up by a stronger logic uniting all the dimensions involved in the narrative, it could have a large fanbase as the audience would be drawn into solving mysteries and unveiling possible truths behind the revelations uncovered by characters.

Awards Potential

It could also have awards potential as it relies heavily in special effects and the sequence of facts would need a solid plot to become adaptable.

INCEPTION

What’s New About the Story

The story is highly unique as it brings together improbable universes with the most varied logics involving different and improbable dimensions.

Lead Characters

John is a true hero as he is very masculine, courageous, physically fit and has strong morals. Princesa AyeRas is also an interesting character from an unusual nature, from a different universe and is brave and empathetic.

Uniqueness of Story

As a fantasy story, it's highly creative. However, even fantasy stories with no connection to reality or compromise with feasibility should still comply with a set of internal rules to keep fiction consistency, which is lacking in the plot. There's also a need for a clearer metaphor or a plot relatable to the world of the audience.

Analyst Recommendation

WORK IN PROGRESS

Justification

While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.

Tips for Improvement

The story could be changed in order to make it more consistent and sophisticated, giving more depth to characters and dimensions. The dimensions and logics involved in the worlds should be deeper explored and explanations for unusual things could be done in a way that would make sense for general audience as a clearer metaphor or something else other than just the world of dreams.
