21st Century Narrative Forms- Reflective.
This process has been one that has been surprising, challenging and has made me reconsider writing methods for script, the production processes. How to generate ideas, subplots & characters. Their feeling, thought, wants and ambitions. How to make it original? And what does it reflect?
What I have gained from the M103MC module has been one of creating a generating fresh ideas, collaborating with an that idea of how another person may see it in their minds-eye, e.g-director from above the script writers idea. It has made me learn to not be to precious with your ideas and to some extent it has made me question the ‘originality’ of narratives. I haven’t done a script writing module since my undergraduate 12 years ago. I understand how to read scripts, however creating my own stories and script, to be honest was quite a daunting task.
The assignment was to create a 10 minute short film that each student would create, followed by a vote of creating a specific one and then working in teams to produce a short film.
