Storyline

This is a story about a character who lives his life by what a fortune cookie tells him. He begins to realize the positive messages that he gets from every fortune cookie read. The character then starts to take for granted the messages from the fortune cookies, by taking advantage of situations to better himself. The problem only gets worse by reading more than one a day believing the answers are in the cookies. Throughout the story the fortune cookies lead the character to new locations, new characters, and new problems. Eventually the character tries to backtrack his footsteps by piecing together the fortune cookies he's already read. This eventually leads the character to realize there was a deeper meaning beyond the messages from the fortune cookies. He realizes A Future of Fortune only comes to those who are patient enough to wait for destiny. Written by Raymond J. Roman

Magic and a lesson learn via a fortune cookie
10 December 2010 | by mikechineaSee all my reviews

High concept with a twist. I see this as having full feature potential or as an episodic. Strong concept, very good overall. One of those little diamonds in the rough begging to be polished. Reminiscent of Jim Jarmusch delivering without hitting you over the head with the obvious. Raymond Roman has something to say and says it with integrity and a real honesty missing in so many big budget pop corn movies. He took a simple real life event and transformed it into a fantasy I had no problem suspending my disbelief. It is a minimalist short with the rawness of a truly independent movie. Ray proves that story is king and and when you do something with heart the technical impurities do not matter.
