Screenwriting Reading Response

The reading for class today gave me the important reminder that unlike the presentation tool the visual aspect of the narrative tool is the most important component of this assignment. The script writing is merely supporting the visual presentation of my story. I am also eager to create a script for my story rather than the information heavy slides of the powerpoint.

I think also, that having decided to use Xtranormal lends itself well to my sense of humor and my writing style. I intend to make a "good" story by writing a contrary and humorous script to draw the audiences' attention. I understand better after having done the reading that I need to keep my audience engaged and make them want to like the characters and care about what they are saying.

The difficulty is writing effectively for a 1:30-3:00 minute video. Because of this difficulty I think that including only two characters and keeping the dialogue fast and funny will help keep the audiences' attention. The "lessons" or "goals" of my story will have to be interjected within the text I write for the script.

I am passionate about cycling, so, I hope that while writing my script I can appeal to those who are not passionate or not aware and make them feel like I did when I first started riding.
