The Opener

The Last Alive has now hit the eleven page mark. This doesn’t sound like a great deal in a running time that will go over ninety in the end but it is a sizable chunk to lay down characters and events. I’ve left it on the line which has our first major upturn in events, basically what occurs that kicks everything off. This is only draft one territory so there some stuff even now that I know I’ll change but we’ve reached this far without any scene breakdowns or character planning. I’ve been winging it all this time but I don’t think I can go much further without putting something down on paper.

Unusually for me I have an idea for the ending and the seeds to be sown to get that result in the final moments but the supporting structure isn’t quite there yet. I’m going to leave the script itself alone for a couple of days and get back to it a little more prepared.
