Earlier this year, I participated in the 72 Hour Script Fest. I had to write a seven-page screenplay for a short film in 72 hours. I had three criteria:
- Setting – the forest
- Genre – Sci-fi
- Central thematic element – spilling coffee on oneself
In a basement in Ogden, UT, in the house of The Hippo’s parents, I brought forth The Pariah of Aquimon.
I submitted my script and ended up one of the 30 finalists. This meant, a team (or teams) would pick my script as their criteria for the 72 Hour Film Fest.
I learned during the competition that a group of three 17-year-olds and two 19-year-olds had picked my script and were filming their adaptation.
You can see the film, by Ashley Ellis Productions, here.
One thought on “The Pariah of Aquimon (on the kind-of-big screen)”
