Script (an acrostic conversation)

 

So what is my line again?

Cut!  Take five everyone, except you.  Can’t you remember your line for five seconds?

Really.  I can get it, just throw me a bone.

I should just replace you with the gopher.  She knows the line.

Please!  Like you could.  I am an actor.  You are just… well what are you?

That would be your boss, and the person telling you you’re fired.

Insomnia (a 200 word story)

The alarm went off and Deidra wanted to throw her phone through the wall.  She figured she had finally fallen asleep like only fifteen fricken minutes ago.  The rest of time had been worrying about pretty much every single word she had said on her date with Kevin last night.  She replayed the whole conversation over and over, picking at every nuance and possible sarcastic thing that either of them had said.  Deidra was normally confident to the point of being cocky, but something about his eyes and easy going swagger really knocked her off her game.  As the script unfolded she kept kicking herself for not sounding smart enough, or that she sounded too distant, or she sounded too desperate.

“Is it time to get up?”

She jumped at hearing Kevin’s voice.  She looked into those blue eyes and couldn’t help the stupid grin that spring to her face.  “Depends.  Do you want us to call in?” she said.

“Now that’s an offer I’ll take, but first I need to hit the head.”  With that he got out of bed and walked to the bathroom, allowing Deidra to appreciate what God gave him.

Okay, maybe things had gone okay.

Honey Do

This post was going to be the script we used for the National Film Challenge that we wrote and shot last year.  Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t like all the heavy formatting a script needs to be readable.  To work around this I am including the pdf of the script, along with the link to the actual short movie.  I hope you enjoy.
