Neilson Black began writing New You in 2008, it was the third full length script he wrote. Originally the idea was about an obese woman with an eating disorder, developing from obesity, to bulimia and then full on anorexia. So the original story was about the cycle of the illness. Janine becoming a model was in the original draft as were a lot of the original characters such as Darcy, Taylor, Greg, Photographer and Chances. But a lot of elements had to be cut such as the obese theme partly due to budget reasons.
The idea for this film had been in my mind before my previous short, The Voice. I was pleased to take full control as the writer again as this creates my best work. Scripts evolve with its draft numbers; the original working title was Safe Haven, meaning to find a ‘happy place’ and the idea was always around spirituality. One of the original themes was yoga, and then law of attraction. But I eventually chose Christianity which meant the title changing from Safe Haven, to Haven, to Heaven and finally Paradis.
