An Updated Script

Since we have changed the plot to fit the role of a teenage boy, we have redone the script and changed aspects of it to fulfil the task of creating a realistic film opening. We have changed the character and the activities the character partakes in.

Script Version 1.2

Taking into account the feedback from the first version of our script, we have designed and formulated a newer version.

From the feedback, it seems that this script is an adequate final script. The only thing that our teacher was concerned about was the part where the protagonist digs into the ground with his bare hands. To overcome this, I have decided that he will dig with the knife so i will make a final change to that so, our script can be fully completed.

Script Version 1

A main part of the task is to write a script for the opening. This is vital; the script is helpful for the directors as well as the actors. We just completed the first attempt of our script which then, got some feedback from our teacher.

Above is the finished first version of the script. In terms of feedback it was okay. The tone and style of the script all together is good – our teacher said that he can picture it in his head. However, in terms of content, it isn’t quite enough. Therefore, more dialogue or even more actions can help improve this aspect of the script.

The next version will be very similar to this current version, it will just contain more content to fill up the full two minutes.

Screenplay Conventions

In order to create a successful film opening, we need to master the art of writing a screenplay. To expand our knowledge on the topic, we studied the conventions of a typical screenplay.

Including the aspects of multi media in the project, I decided to create a Prezi showing the different conventions.
