MAKE A MOVIE
Click Here for a detailed guide to creating incredibly vivid “Movie Scenes”.
HOW TO WRITE IT:
Hallway/Lobby or Kitchen
Script 1: Sean Connery walks in on Chuck Norris injecting himself with a giant syringe. As a life-long Chuck Norris fan, Sean is overcome with a feeling of intense shock and disappointment. He holds his hands out facing upwards and shouts “WHAT?!”. Chuck Norris cowers in shame.
Script 2: Sherlock Holmes has fallen off the wagon and is injecting himself with a huge syringe filled with heroin. John Watson comes in to discover what has happened and exclaims “WHAT?!” in horror and disgust, he runs out to get help from Chuck Norris who enters from the left. He picks up Sherlock with the syringe still dangling from his arm and says “I’m gonna show you WHAT’S WHAT!”
Script 2: Note that we added in John Watson into this scene. This is a useful technique if you are looking for inspiration. Adding in another actor related to your Hanzi Movie Method actor (in this case John Watson) shouldn’t end up confusing you, because you know he is directly related to Sherlock Holmes. We call this visualization technique “extras,” like extras on a movie set.
“What” clearly has an abstract meaning, so the key is to clearly imagine the confusion on people’s faces when they are saying “What” (a good visual representation of what people look like when they don’t know WHAT something is). In Script 2, there’s also the supplementary addition of someone saying “I’ll show you WHAT’S WHAT” which is an alternative option relating to a frequently said phrase in specific regions.
