can't say much more than longline, given the script is only 3-pages

it's just a short “dramatic sketch” i wrote as an exercise in keeping things simple - but now it's done, i thought it might be a nice little SHORT for a director and/or actor to play around with ... ideally I'd like it to be done in Australia, but beggars can't be choosers

- exterior establishing shots, and
- interior for the main action

- lead (woman, 30-ish)
- support, speaking (man 20s), and
- support, non-speaking (man 40s)

The Writer: Robert Bruinewoud

Melbourne, Australia 1982. I submit my first "screenplay" (and I use the term very loosely) to the BBC. It was a hugely expensive Doctor Who saga. Needless to say, it wasn't picked up. You can read all about it here . Sure, I was a little disappointed, but as I was also working at my first job in advertising as a designer / junior art director at the time, I wasn't too upset. Since then I've worked in design and advertising. But, over the years, I kept finding myself being drawn back to screenwriting. Originally, it was because I thought it would be easy. Or at least, easier than writing a novel. And then, when I figured out how hard screenwriting is, it was too late. I was hooked. And that... Go to bio
