Elijah Wood Tobit Writer

PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

Now the particular feeling to leave the audience with depends, of course, on the kind of story you are writing. If the ending is a downer, you want to make sure the ride getting there was an exciting one, which in the end can become the movie’s redeeming reward. Other stories will leave the audience with smiles on their faces, tears in their eyes, wonder in their hearts.

How do you yourself feel after watching one of your favorite movies? That’s the feeling to shoot for.

Are there things that confuse you? Are you left hanging and unsatisfied?

Finally, imagine yourself seeing the movie that can rise from the blueprint (and sales brochure) of your script. How do you feel after seeing the story in your mind’s eye?

Do you see the barge approaching the bridge?

EMILY

Emily watches the barge move towards the bridge and readjusts her speaking apparatus – it’s a voice filter and it’s a real bitch talking through this rig.
