1. Partner Pitch

Get in groups of four and pitch your concept to your potential partners. Like we did before, a classic pitch is usually a summary of the story idea in twenty five words or less that conveys the exposition (who, where, and when), the inciting incident (what has happened) and hopefully hooks your audience. You want the excite them on your idea, getting them to exclaim “Now THAT is a movie I need to see!” After you’ve verbally pitched the idea, take a few minutes to read over each script, discuss the merits of each, considering qualitative traits (“your idea is so funny!”) and technical traits (“my idea is on the moon with two robots, which might be too difficult for this project”) to decide on which of the scripts you want to produce. For this project, you can work in groups of two, three, or four.

2. Revise Script

Edit, edit, and edit some more! Work together to polish it into a final script. It should be around four to six pages long, with a suggested minimum of three and absolute maximum of seven. Time it out to see if it is too long or too short to see if you need to fill it up or edit it down. Please try to complete the final draft as soon as possible and be sure to submit it for printing and review via Teams by the end of the day on Tuesday.

3. Produce Storyboard

Get started on your storyboard! Even if one person has been the primary artist, everyone should be involved in review.
