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.
