Script to Screen a first-hand account

1st 10 pages

Last week I had the monumental pleasure of being part of Austin Film festival, otherwise known as the writer’s festival. The one panel I was set on attending and signed up for in advance was Jenny Lumet’s script to screen on RACHEL GETTING MARRIED. I had personal reasons for this but ended up being so engrossed as a writer and filmmaker that I feel compelled to break it down for all of you.

If you’re not familiar with the film, it was released in 2008 to critical acclaim, even though it did not roll in the dough – a good point to be aware of when you want to write good stories vs. commercial stories.

The writer of these words did not originally want to put words to paper, but to draw the glorious things he saw. However, he could not draw from images in his mind. He could only draw those things he saw that had been drawn by others. He then almost died one day and that urge to draw became the urge to write. Again, however, the fuel was not always there, and before he knew it it was his senior year of high school, and he was tasked to write a 50page novella for a final project. This became the fuel and started his path of being a full-time writer. He may have struggled and may have made no difference in the world of man nor money in his hand, but he still moves forward. He currently is writing a comic book that has an artist who draws the things that are envisioned. Life could be better, but it could be always worse. So he keeps his head low to write but high to live life. This is the story of this man, to know more, read the words he has put into the world of the web. View all posts by WhiteShadow
