Writer-in-Residence Short Film Script

When I started this project, the goal was two-fold: To help engage the Carbon Arc audience by discussing the programming and atmosphere at Halifax’s premiere independent cinema, and to write a short film script. I’ve had a few ideas for a short, but struggled. I finally settled on an adaptation of an autobiographical story I wrote that I’d intended for a graphic novel. Condensing it for a short film wasn’t easy, and I think it still needs work to expand it a little visually, but this is a start. I’d like to see the this animated, and I have some ideas for that, too.

If you’re interested, feel free to read the script here:
