A film script

Treasured Post by

On Thursday afternoon Sam and I wrote a film script from a story Katherine wrote last week – very complex as we were thinking it through shot by shot. We ended up creating a visually heavy text, that has a dramatic distancing effect on the audience member. It worked best when combined with an action – for instance getting the audience member to step over a body on the floor at the same time as a character in the film does – they then become this person for a moment.

Potentially this is an interesting way of drawing a person in and out of the action. So sometimes you are a charcter in the film, sometimes you are seeing the action as though watching the film. Don’t know whether it will make it to Treasured, but an interesting notion.
