Screenwriting: Day One

Daily Prompt #14: Inspired by Images

Inspired by this image, write for ten minutes. Your choice of topic and form is completely up to you. See where the art and your writing take you.


For this unit, you’re going to learn how to write both movie and play scripts. Since both are meant to be performed and seen, our daily prompts will be both image and music-related.

To start this unit, you’re going to study excerpts from four different film genres and complete the linked activity. ¬†Once you’re done completing the activity, we’ll talk about what the elements of movie scripts are, and then watch the movie clips!
