'Woodwork' : an examination of the evolution of a script over three drafts
MetadataShow full item record
This document recounts the development of my feature length horror screenplay “Woodwork,” from the conception of the idea through the completion of three separate drafts. It attempts to inform the reader of the choices made that led to the subsequent changes in each draft, as well as examining elements of the story (or backstory) that remain absent in the final draft. It also describes the evolution of myself as a writer over the nearly two-year period between first picking up this idea and finalizing a third draft for presentation to graduate faculty in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Screenwriting.
