My Kinda Scripture
I had never written a script until I reached university and began a creative writing module. I had always wanted to try writing scripts but the many formatting rules and my lack of knowledge on how to approach them put me off. However, I quickly fell in love with the medium and wrote three short films during my time on the course.
I've uploaded my third year piece below which was inspired by the lyrics from 'Crazy' by Aerosmith. I was really struggling to come up with a concept but one day I was walking to uni, listening to my iPod Touch (this was 2012, guys, they were definitely still a thing) and the words "Say you're leavin' on a seven thirty train/ And that you're headin' out to Hollywood/ Girl, you been givin' me that line so many times/ It kinda gets like feelin' bad looks good" seemed to just stick with me.
I had a vision of a woman standing at a train and never boarding it and the next thing I know I'm desperately noting down ideas before I could forget them!
