Worst-Case Scenario Survival Movie Script
Worst-Case Scenario: __________________________________________________________
Choose the setting for your video:
Describe in detail – the laboratory, objects in it, time of day, position of characters, and what they are doing when the scene begins. It may be helpful to make a sketch.
Choose the characters:
You should have at least two or three acting roles in your scene. You may also have several “extra’s” who will be in the background of the scene. For each character, give them a role (student, teacher, rat, etc.)
Actor # 1: ____________________________________________________________________
Actor # 2: ____________________________________________________________________
Actor # 3: ____________________________________________________________________
(Actor #4): ___________________________________________________________________
(Actor #5): ___________________________________________________________________
Write your dialogue:
Create the dialogue of your script. The dialogue should help establish the conflict in your scene (worst-case scenario), the climax of the conflict (what happens because of worst-case scenario), and the resolution of the conflict (what is the proper response to the safety issue). You should also make sure that the script concludes with the way that the scenario could have been prevented in the first place.
ON A SEPARATE SHEET A PAPER, WRITE THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN YOUR CHARACTERS. It should be between 1 and 2 pages long. Include stage directions (ex. Student drinks liquid in beaker and begins to groan) to help your actors act out the action in the scene.
