This study comprises of two main pieces: an original screenplay, followed by a critique. The predominant theme throughout is the depiction of emotion within the world of screenwriting. The protagonist’s internal landscape is at the heart of the screenplay, specifically in relation to the theme of family. It visually depicts the protagonist’s emotional world, how it was shaped during childhood, and subsequently how it forms a blueprint for his outward experiences. The piece is structured in order to elicit emotion above intellect and does so by portraying emotive childhood scenes and by favouring poignant imagery over dialogue. The critique discusses the individual attributes of screenwriting, narrative and character that must be honed and harmonised in order to create a cohesive, affecting piece. It analyses the use of pace, lighting and music as methods to enhance the emotional impact of a screenplay.
