Penniwit, the Artist

Step 1: Selecting Your Text

I choose Penniwit, the Artist from The Spoon River Anthology.

Penniwit, the Artist

I LOST my patronage in Spoon River

From trying to put my mind in the camera

To catch the soul of the person.

The very best picture I ever took

Was of Judge Somers, attorney at law.

He sat upright and had me pause

Till he got his cross-eye straight.

Then when he was ready he said "all right."

And I yelled "overruled" and his eye turned up.

And I caught him just as he used to look

When saying "l except."


Step 2: Drafting Your Screenplay: It's my first time writing a script, so please excuse my inexperience  and bear with me haha. Google Docs messes with the formatting; sorry about that!

Here's my draft:

Any feedback would be much appreciated! 

Step 3: Logline: James Penniwit, a misread photographer, loses his family, dignity and life, in pursuit of his passion to capture the ephemeral human soul.
