Abstract

This is a short form script written for my Film and Video Studies class, in which we studied not only the history of film, but the technical and cultural aspects that make filmmaking such a unique medium for storytelling. This story is about death and mortality and how we as humans cope with it. When faced with imminent death, does one cross off every item on a bucket list, or take control to remove any suspense and pain that comes with waiting? Though some would "live like they were dying," some people treat death seriously and judiciously, as the next step of life for them. This short film is meant to explore the meaning of death and how it affects not only the person dying, but the people around them. This script will be performed in full by myself and three other readers.
