Screenwriting: Day Three

Daily Prompt #49: Responding to Art

Look at the image below, then free write for seven minutes about it. See where the image and your mind take you!

Hi folks!

Let’s review the handouts: Building Blocks of a Script and Formatting a Script.

Next, practice formatting a short scene from Toy Story with a partner. The activity can be found on the back of the “Formatting a Script” packet.


Now, alone or with a partner, try your hand at writing a mini screenplay for the following scenario:

John heard a strange noise in the closet. As he crossed the room to investigate, he heard Diana scream something terrifying. He tried to decide what to do. Then, he made his decision.

Elaborate as much as you want. Be prepared to share and discuss with the class.
