Just for fun
let's make a movie about autism and the autistic community.

What will be in the soundtrack?
Who will act in it?
What will some scenes be?
Who will the characters be?
What will the plot and sub-plots be?
What will the theme be?
What will the many messages in it be?
What will be some quotes in the movie, and in what context will they be in?
What will the sets look like and what will be the places each scene is supposed to take place in?

Let's brainstorm!

RE: Just for fun
In general, I think it would be good to start it off looking simple and fun, so it looks like how the general population might see us from the outside, but then gradually add depth as the movie progresses so that viewers could have a chance to accidentally learn that we're fully developed, complex human beings with our own personalities.

Yes! Like a scene about an awkward kid being beaten up for his autism, and then he goes home and goes on his activist website and talks about it in depth with a lot of big words and complex connections made.

RE: Just for fun
I don't think I was ever beaten up for autism when I was a kid. With me, it was always because I was weird and different. In fact, I remember one other kid breaking into tears when he found out the kid he was beating up was autistic, which I kind of thought was missing the point.

Plus, that seems like the kind of thing to do after giving the audience a chance to get to know the character. Then you can let the action speak for itself.

How adding an aspiring drag queen? One that gets to throw some coffee on one of those self martyr anti vaccination moms that smiles coyly and says"Oopsies!" And then just walks away. Oh and the coffee is hot.

Helga: So I'm not Kate Moss. Big deal.
Milo: Kate Moss isn't stuck in a sewer.
Helga: Gee I don't know. When you think about it is there no sewer BIGGER than the world of professional modelling?

Okay, so we can have a group of Aspies/auties, one of them an aspiring drag queen, another who gets picked on for autism, another who gets picked on for other stuff and the other person is then remorseful when they find out the kid is autistic, which the kid thinks is missing the point.

What I meant with my comment is that I guess I was picked on for autism, but the bullies I went to school with didn't know that's why I was weird.

Same here, until the rumor went around! I had a lot of trouble quashing that rumor.

I will write the soundtrack myself!

The movie will have to be otherwise complete first, though. That's how it's done.

No attempts at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my hear a deep and burning hatred for the Tory Party … So far as I am concerned, they are lower than vermin.
