This week we have started a new module aimed at the industry process on script writing. There’s more to script writing than just writing 3 pages of dialogues and sequences. This will net get you very far in the industry. The first process we were taught this week was to be able to pitch an idea. This is a crucial part before a script should even be written. We were given 2 stimuluses to base our idea on:
A: There is a hammering on a door, it opens to reveal a dishevelled, breathless person, why? How did they get this way…
B: There is a hammering on a door, why? Dare the door be opened? If so what is revealed….
I’ve chosen to use the first stimulus for my pitch idea, and here it is:
A dishevelled, breathless woman hammers on the door of a single mother and her only son’s house at 3am. She claims she is from the distant apocalyptic future and here to save her world.
