"INT. ENTRY WAY - DAY
Shelly carefully opens the door a few inches. Thompson and
Mood look in from the front porch.
Is this the Prince residence?
Is your grandaddy home?
Thompson eyes her up.
Were you expecting me?
Shelly doesn't answer.
(under his breath)
This is a waste of time.
May we come in?
Shelly opens the door and the two enter. Thompson takes in
his surroundings. Mood hangs back by the door, rotating a
You may have heard rumor 'bout the
missing cats around town.
I'm allergic to cats.
Other things too. Garbage cans gone
through. Laundry missing from the
line. Piles a feces in backyards.
What exactly are you asking me?
You may not know this, but in 1979
your Grandaddy claimed he discovered
of a mysterious creature. Lost his
job at the university for it. Called
Course she knows, Thompson. The
myth's been in town for years.
I'm sorry Officers, but I'm in a bit
of a hurry.
I was hoping you might offer a
EXT. STREET - DAY
RYAN FRANCIS (13) pedals hard on his bike, swerving on the
street. He wears little cape pinned to his shirt. He adds
animated sound effects to his biking.
Ryan skids to a stop outside Shelly's house where a police
car is parked. He looks curiously toward the house.
INT. KITCHEN - DAY
Shelly opens the fridge. She takes out the half gallon of
milk. Thompson sits at the kitchen table, a glass in front

" .........This is a side i just recently recieved i'm from boston mass .There is not a whole lot of work out here to begin with .The majority of it is student films or indie films i decided to go.For myself i look at it like a gained experience.I don't even care about getting the role even if it was offered .I'm just using the audition to get better at auditioning. I always try and look at ways a situation could benefit me.Whether good or bad it helps.
I just got a script and it needs a lot of grammar help. I generally see it, when the director or writer's first language isn't english.
I know this is an old thread, but I'll chime in with a "me too." I don't even submit my kid on projects where the character breakdown is badly written. If I do submit her on something and the sides turn out to be crap, I get her out of it. Time is precious.
I have backed out of auditioning for a student film after seeing the student's OTHER work he provided when he sent out the audition dates. It looked and sounded like they shot it with a cellphone and the scripts were horrible.
I like when student films list what equipment they are using in the breakdown. At least you now that the project would yield TECHNICALLY quality footage.
