Emily Carnichael demonstrates screenwriting from a prompt



Here’s an exercise that reminds me of the 48-hour-film project.

Emily Carmichael (who writes sci-fi action movies) writes a scene in 7 minutes to a prompt.  She has written for “Pacific Rim Uprising” and “Jurassic World III”.


It’s a sci-fi story set in 2048,  It involves a woman, an older man, and object, and a chase scene.

She makes information more specific, like “leaving town” becomes “to the outer ring”.
  
The object is a small robot.

"You don't need to be perfect at spelling to be a writer".  Just good at protesting?  You are not supposed to tell the director where to put the camera.
