The One-Page Screenplay: Juliet Snowden & Stiles White's 'Round These Parts
We're thrilled to now present the latest addition to Movieline's ongoing One-Page Screenplay Project, the industry's leading repository of budget-friendly material for the New Hollywood Economy.
Today's offering comes to us from the husband-and-wife screenwriting team of Juliet Snowden and Stiles White, scripters of 2009's other global apocalypse thriller, Knowing. In keeping with the microfiction theme, Stiles himself is the author of an ongoing series called Six-Word Tales -- a format that makes the One-Page Screenplay seem positively Tolstoyian in comparison. His accompanying illustrations of these quark-sized narrative gems are compiled over at sixwordtales.com. Check 'em out! They're awesome!
Now on with the show. Presenting: Juliet Snowden & Stiles White's 'Round These Parts, after the jump.
