Bon Appetit - Savor this short to the max!

Bon Appétit
"A jubilant gourmet stops at nothing to please."

Ask anyone who loves to cook what drives their passion and the answers are universal: It's relaxing and creative, for family and friends that I care about, and I love to eat! 

With the abundance of popular tv shows like Emeril Lagasse, Rachael Ray, Top Chef, The Great British Baking Show, and movies such as No Reservations, Ratatouille, Julie & Julia, The Hundred-Foot Journey and Burnt, it's easy for any wanna-be-chef to satisfy their craving.

Bon Appétit, Barry Katz's one-page script, presents a gourmet Chef preparing an exquisite meal. The mood has been set -- classical music plays in the background and candles are lit -- and he revels in the "zone."

"The chef slices and dices meat and veggies with the precision of a surgeon. He sautées the medley, humming along while his razor-sharp utensils clang against the cookware in a syncopated beat."

When steam envelops the kitchen, "the chef takes in the aroma, wafting it toward his flaring nostrils."

His chef-d'oeuvre is almost complete. Ahhh, bellissimo...

Does the chef labor for his own pleasure? Or, is his exuberance for a deserving and grateful recipient? 

Bon Appétit  is an endearing script. Short and sweet, it's certain to satisfy any director with exceptional taste.

Über reader. I enjoy writing animated scripts, historical-fiction and westerns, when I'm not reading or researching new story ideas. So many ideas, so little time...

Script Revolution is a great place to interact with old friends and make new friends. It's all about networking!  ;D

Real name: 

I have enjoyed creative writing from as far back as I can remember. It's the one talent in life I can truly say I have. While I don't currently make my living as a screenwriter, it is certainly something I aspire to do. For now, I enjoy the art of making art and most of all, I enjoy sharing my art with those who find it interesting. Several of my shorts have already been produced and I'm hoping to land a deal with a feature or television script.Read more
