Learning about Scriptwriting and Digging Imagination

The suicide note which is not narrated fully in the film. My fav part in writing the script.

When I was a kid, I never gather enough attention to listen the dialogues between actors. When I was in the teenager phase, that’s when it all has started. I had a profound interest in digging English because of various reasons. The first is to be able to write essays and to not be dumb as life goes on. Second, it’s because I want to be able to watch movies without subtitles. Thereby, I learn it by reading and watching movies with subtitles. After watching dozens of coming of age movies and classics such as Pride & Prejudice and The Crown, I think I am good enough to watch movies without the subtitles, even when the actors have British accent. It’s fun, I can do multitasking since I don’t depend on subtitles hehe.

Watching coming of age movies gave me a lot of wisdoms. I really love some lines from some my favorite movies.

“Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits, and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we alive for.”; 

Legally Blonde 3

“It is with passion, courage of conviction, and strong sense of self that we take our next steps in the world. Remembering that first impressions are not always correct. You must always have faith in people, and, most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself.”



There are countless iconic movie lines. There is one movie that’s filled with iconic lines such as Clueless. Who made them all? The scriptwriter. She/he digs his imagination even before the movie is going to be arranged. They are the thinker and the creative in one. If they are not as crucial as the actors, I don’t know you.  Their creativity captivates the audience, that captures their heart and makes them laugh so hard. They help actors to be actors. Without their efforts on dozens of revisions, there will be no movie! Not many people put their mind on movie lines, let alone scriptwriting. But the format of scriptwriting is appealing and I am happy that I can insert my tiny bits scriptwriting skill for this short film.

I am grateful that I can take this shot and I can say that it’s not bad. Big thanks to my group too!

    First time doing a drama? It is indeed a challenging exam. I am sure that you learned though. You surely learned more than what average high school students learned. No regrets for learning and maybe your sleepless night?
