Untitled Michigan Horror Script
This creative research project consists of a draft of a full-length horror movie script and a series of interviews with filmmakers who have experience in the horror genre. The goal of creating a script that is designed to be able to be filmed in Michigan is to support local filmmaking while also learning the basics of screenwriting. Interviews with horror filmmakers will be published with the goal of teaching other local filmmakers the basics of getting your work made into a film, with focus on pre-production, writing, funding, post production, and distribution. This project will illustrate the basic building blocks of filmmaking by producing a script and interviews with other filmmakers.
