Writing a script for my EPQ Project

Post by BigNoseJack21 » Wed Nov 03, 2021 10:40 pm

Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jack, I’m a college student writing a script for a film adaptation of a video game (fallout new vegas). I’ve joined this forum to gather research on the world of survivalism and being a Prepper. I would really appreciate if anyone would like to contact me and teach me about the Prepper life, cheers.

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

Unfortunately most of us here are wary of talking to journalists or film makers in general as the reality of prepping doesn't fall into their preconceived ideas.

Having a hotel bag for an overnight stay following a gas leak or burst water pipe doesn't really sell newspapers or push the Nuclear fall out scenario.

By all means, have a look around, ask questions and if you want; stay a while, who knows you may pick up some titbits that may change your lifestyle.

If you'd have said fallout 4 you may have had some bites, if you're after a quick-fix, youtube is full of "preppers" looking for their 5 minutes of fame.
If at first you don't succeed, excessive force is usually the answer.

Welcome.As pseudonym said,we are wary of anything media related,as we get tend to get labelled as nutters. Be aware that ‘Survivalism’ and ‘Prepping’ are two different animals.

I could send you pictures of a cupboard full of tins, a decent set of tools and a grand in cash ?

If you want a bunker and a load of guns, you'll need to look elsewhere.

Yeah, what the others said. Plus, wanting someone to teach you about prepping, for a commercial project of yours ... no. Do your own research: as you've joined the forum, it's all available to you, for free. Best of luck with it!

I know that you were told on another site that the information you require is USA las Vegas desert that sort of survival and prepping is very different from what we would be doing , you need a forum based in the USA.

Good luck.
