This week, let's write a script. So far, you've made a one-shot silent movie (The Lumiere). You've shot a scene from a gritty cop show (The Interrogation). Now let's get those creative juices flowing on a new three-minute original project.
Here is link to a page of suggestions to help you come up with an original story. Read it and see if any of the suggestions spark a fire in your mind.
The first step is to write out the story as you would in your English class: in simple prose, as a short story. You may write it in any tense you'd like. If you can't decide on one idea to write about, write two of them.
Two guidelines: 1) The story must be of subject matter appropriate enough to be approved by your ENTIRE family. 2) It must be a story that can be believably staged and filmed on campus.
This is due on Wednesday, April 1st. The next step will be revealed on that day.
