Eva wrote about a scene that really happened. Steven wrote two scripts and changed his mind at the last moment about which one we would read. Caleb brought it on his computer, but doesn't have an ending. Almost no one had decided on a title. Titles or no titles...I'm impressed.
I'll type in Courier font in honor of the standard screenwriting font that everyone is supposed to use.
I'm teaching a series of three workshops on screenwriting at Light House Studio. I met 11 high school students for the first time 2 Saturdays ago and they started their own original 5 minute scripts. They came up with their scenarios and rough ideas during the first class, then they brought back formatted scripts for a table readings and discussions last Saturday.
|Discussing plot, character, dialogue, etc.|
|listen, discuss, listen, discuss|
|Eva (center) listening while her script is read|
|The dreaded (but wonderfully productive) warm-up writing exercise|
I can't wait to see the final drafts or next-to-final drafts this Saturday. If you have a young person interested in film and you live anywhere near Charlottesville, send them to Light House.
