The Two Minute Drill – Screenplay Practice

I’m not one for New Years resolutions, but for some reason I sort of promised myself (and Dead Red Eyes) a whole list of nonsense for 2013. Here’s one I thought was worth a mention though.

Once a week I need to randomly just drop things once per week and do a short screenplay. In 2 minutes (technically I probably give myself 5 or maybe 10 though), write up a short screenplay, put in as many elements as possible, even the dreaded “MONTAGE” if I have to! Just don’t go overboard with characters and make it something that can be filmed on the cheap, as we are broke.

The first one last week was a short background piece for Beatmaster Flash that sort of serves as a character introduction. If we don’t end up using it, I might as well put it up on the site. Anyway, lets see how it goes. Anyone got any ideas for the next one?
