Throughout this week, I was able to work and re-work the first three scenes of my screenplay. I started by trying to first come up with an opening scene. I wanted to write a scene that jumped right into the story, but I am open to trying out different opening scenes. I actually do plan on re-writing another opening scene in the coming week, and seeing which one works better for an opening scene. The current version of my script is attached below:
To save some time, here’s a brief summary/overview of the scenes I’ve constructed so far.
The screenplay starts off with an opening scene of the main character Charlie involved in a prison yard fight with a large alien prisoner. The alien prisoner is furious at Charlie and attempts to kill him, but Charlie fights back. the fight is broken up but he prison security guards, and Charlie is then escorted to the Warden. The Warden tells Charlie that because of his frequent involvement in prison fights and antagonizing the other prisoners, he will be transferred to solitary confinement immediately.
The story will be furthered and potentially reworked in the coming weeks…stay tuned.
