Development Pitch

The world needs to understand how men in their twenties into their thirties are thinking. Male youth suicide and rates of depression are on the up and up. Why? What is wrong about being male? The main character is just a young guy who like to live a good life, have a great relationship, not be complicated. But complications arise. In the family as death of a parent figure looms and decisions on treatment have to be made and relatives turn up out of love or opportunism? In lust and love as the enchantress confuses him with the messages she sends. In trust of good people and in trying to figure out who to trust. In assessing a business idea – is a dog hospice a good business proposition? In moving through the public – why don’t some women want to sit next to men on aircraft? In making decisions and in deciding not to make decision but just go with the flow and not let it get you down. In deciding to focus on male integrity even without all the skills and answers. A movie about Ted needs to be made to show imperfection does not write a person off, man or woman. People are complex so go with it. There’s more to life than a social media profile. Incinerate gives Ted a strong voice to hear.

About The Author

Ruth aka RL Green is lucky enough to live in Sydney, Australia surrounded by beaches and country. She likes to live a life in many dimensions – writer, horsewoman, wife, artist, mother, friend, skier, farmer, reader, community spokeswoman, public speaker, to name a few. The important thing is not to be defined within one cast of characters or setting in real life as there is always more to learn and enjoy outside the circle you feel comfortable in. The other thing is to never think you can categorise people by their dress, way of speaking or opinions as everyone is fluid and reactive. Ruth has spent much of her adult life writing about the legal regulation of work especially safety and health in that environment. Incinerate is her first work of fiction drawn from the strange ways of this modern first world. The world is a demanding and unforgiving space for young people with political correctness and unforgiving criticism in some cases stifling the urge to live a complex, free and fulfilling life. She wanted to explore that quandary mainly from a young man’s point of view. In her experience young men think in a precious and open way that sometimes is undervalued. Iris Murdoch in an interview said a novelist is bound to express values and they should be conscious of that fact. The question for the novelist is the extent to which they aim to reflect on those values. Incinerate is only a morality play in its reflections on circumstance, motivation and outcome. It is up to the reader to decide if the characters are making the right decisions in persisting in their relationships with each other. Ruth read Henry Handel Richardson’s novel, Maurice Guest, in her teenage years - a story of obsession, drama and tragedy. Perhaps not the best choice for a girl with an over active imagination. At some point she rejected the notion that dramatic suffering gave the world a more poignant meaning and moved on to the pursuit of happiness. That is what she seeks for her characters in Incinerate. Ruth believes in the mantra “less is more” in terms of conscious effort which can block authentic expression. She learnt that by riding horses and seeking to engage with their power. That is why Incinerate allows the barely conscious motivations and reactions of its characters to emerge. https://youtu.be/Tbdgpsgrm1g
