A message from Luke Cypert:
A group of ECU students is working to create a very high quality, professional short film this fall. But without an incredible story, all our work will be in vain. So we need students from your department to help us tell the best story we can. I've had the pleasure to be in a few classes with some English Majors, and the ones I've seen are great story tellers!
So here's what we need: two-three students to come to our brainstorming/story meeting on the 23rd of this month. Then, depending on who is the head writer and what support they need, there will be three days to write the script. It will then be reviewed and hopefully approved by the head production staff and then the dialogue will be rewritten as needed to better fit the actors that will be cast after the 23rd. On September 6, filming will begin and the writers should basically be done.
The script length will be from 5-25 minutes, and that will be decided on the 23rd.
Please let me know if you know of anyone who would be interested.
