We had to write a dialogue scene for my Film subject and this is the one that I did. I really enjoyed writing it and it made me realise that I wouldn't mind doing this for a job but you know that's far off into the distance. Anyway enough of my babbling, here's my script.

It's about a girl in high school that has lost her father to cancer and she's become an introvert and hasn't really gotten over his death. And so she ends up at the park where her dad used to take her to and she has an imaginary conversation with her younger self.

EXT.Park Swing Set-Day.
FADE IN.
Emma sits down on the swing. She starts swinging, looking up at the sky. Young Emma slowly fades in to appear beside Emma. Young Emma starts swinging as well.
Young Emma
(Energetic)
I like the sky. I like how blue it is. I can almost touch it... see!
Young Emma tries to touch the sky by swinging higher and higher with her hand outstretched. Young Emma gives up and keeps swinging.
YOUNG EMMA
One day I'll touch the sky.
Emma
Mmm, it's too far away to touch
YOUNG EMMA
No it's not!
Young Emma tries to touch the sky again.
YOUNG EMMA
I'm almost there.
Emma:
How's papa?
YOUNG EMMA
Wouldn't you know?
Emma stops swinging and looks over at her younger self. Emma sighs.
EMMA
How is he?
YOUNG EMMA
He's good as he always is. Papa stays at home now.
EMMA
Is he happy?
YOUNG EMMA
Of course he is!
EMMA
Does he play with you a lot?
YOUNG EMMA
Yeaahh! He does. Sometimes though he will just sit and watch me, smiling.
Young Emma smiles and swings happily. Emma just swings and swings not looking at Young Emma. Young Emma's smile falters.
YOUNG EMMA
(sad)
Papa is sick, isn't he?
EMMA
Yeah. Yeah he is.
Emma and Young Emma continue to swing and swing. Slowly Young Emma disappears. Emma is left swinging alone on the swing.
FADE OUT.
