Storyboard Text

  • "Here I am, ninety years old and ready for cooling board, using a brand new Macintosh computer and there you sit, twenty-two and gorgeous, fresh as a new peach yet scrawling on a yellow legal pad like an old maid in a Victorian romance."
  • It's only human nature to want to know things and that's why people don't like a mystery with no resolution. People want a conclusion for example why 9/11 happened, why are gas prices so high or how a man from Colorado went to work one morning and ended up dead on a little island off the coast of Maine several hours later. In a way The Colorado Kid is a a study of not knowing; we can get the facts, speculate but at the end of the day it's still an unknown. Which can applied to actual cases where people's causes of death go unsolved.
  • •But sometimes a thing happens, like two high school kids findin' a dead body on the town's prettiest beach, and you say to yourself, 'There's must be a story in that. ' Not just reporting-what, why, when, where, and how, but a story-and then you discover there isn't. That it's only a bunch of unconnected facts surrounding a true unexplained mystery. And that, dear, is what folks don't want. It's too many waves. It makes 'em seasick.
