Jordan Cates Reflection For me, this assignment was one I definitely was looking forward to. I had never done any sort of script/movie idea before in my entire life, so it was fun trying to come up with ideas. I wanted to pick an idea that was creative enough to make this assignment a challenge. I know I hadn’t ever written anything of this sort, but I really wanted to dive in head first to see what I could come up with. My main idea for this story was to literally take the song Summertime Clothes by Animal Collective and make that into a movie, or more a short film. My targeted audience is anyone who wants to watch a movie that won’t make a whole lot of sense the first time watching. I wanted the movie to be open to interpretation and I want the audience to be able to put their own history and own story to this. My goal was to formulate a story that could be made into something that would portray the emotion and feelings I get when I listen to the actual song. I also wanted this movie to be something that a future director could take and make it creative. I purposely made the dialogue in small amounts because I want this production to be something where the script is open for the actors to do their own thing, the director to have lots of options with what the actors do, and the cinematographer (hopefully creative) to have the ability to work with crazy angels without having to focus on the characters dialogue talk sessions. This assignment was lots of fun, difficult to do because of writers block and just coming up with different ideas to throw in there. But overall, this was a great learning experience and something I plan to learn more about so I can grow into a better writer.
