Here’s a challenge for all you writer types that have some kind of video camera and software to edit with.
Write a 5-page script that tells a complete story (complete means that it contains a BME) with at least two characters. Write it so that it is very easy to film at little to no cost (NO BUDGET).
Then film it, edit it, and put it on YouTube like I did. I was skeptical this could be done. Until we did it in Videography class. It was a great experience for me as a writer to see the words on paper become a shot list (Oh Yeah! Make a shot list after writing the script before shooting any footage) then raw footage that was then spliced together in the proper sequence to make a story.
It was fun. Here’s the video. ENJOY.
