Learning Goal: I’m working on a scriptwriting project and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
A Dramatic Story With Minimal Dialogue
Write a one page dramatic script with a beginning, middle and end about two characters set in one room (anything from a gym to a stairwell to a studio apartment) with a couch and a leak—in proper screenplay format.
You should rely on action, conflict, imagination, surprise, and visual storytelling. You should include no more than 2 lines of dialogue total. No gesturing, flashbacks, magic, phone calls, electronics, talking to oneself, dreams, or voiceover narration.
The characters should have a clear and urgent want? What is at stake? Is there a timelock?
Both upload and bring a copy of the script to class, where we will read them next week.
