This is the first individual project for Baylor's Field Production class. It is an interpretation exercise where each student is given an extremely vague script of about 15 lines of dialogue and the student as director should interpret what the scene is about, who the characters are, where the setting is etc., then make specific directorial choices about how to shoot and edit the film, how to direct the acting etc.
Thanks to Holden and Naomi Whatley for acting and to Adrian Cardenas for assisting with the production.
The Script as it was assigned to me:
Taylor: What's for dinner?
Brook: I haven't decided.
Taylor: What's that supposed to mean?
Brook: What does it sound like?
Taylor: Fine, so I can decide?
Brook: You think so?
Taylor: I don't see why not.
Brook: Why don't you have the special of the day?
Taylor: I don't even know what it is.
Brook: Let me surprise you then.
Taylor: Not sure how I feel about surprises.
Taylor: What is it?
Brook: Don't be silly. You know what it is.
Taylor: You know what would be good with this?
The director is left to create the beginning and end to the scene.
Shot with a DVX100b and edited on Final Cut Pro.
