This week’s guest script is from a writer by the name of Christopher Taylor, a chap I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting but who describes himself as someone who “Has lived in Berlin for 3 years. Studied in Perth. Is devilishly handsome, bullshit talented and lazy as fuck.” so I like him.
I also like his two pager, which he introduces here:
This script is the opening scene of a story that began in my head as a feature film, moved on to become my (unfinished) first novel and now bangs around in my head from time to time begging to be completed in one form or the other.
I found the two page limit to be very challenging (at one point wondering if anyone out there in cyberspace had a “threepagesaweek” blog) but I’m quite happy with the finished product. I guess the point of the two page script is to tighten everything up and ensure that as a writer I am able to ruthlessly cut what is unnecessary.It was great being able to reconnect with these characters that had been left in hard drive hibernation for the past few years, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
