Before we were able to begin the writing stage of our short film, we had to study the following text taken from the book 'Shooting People - Get Your Short Film Funded, Made & Seen'. We studied this text in order to know how to structure, write and create a short film and also to understand what makes a successful short such as a familiar event and a problem of some kind. After studying this text we then took a short exam where we had to get 80% or more to be able to begin the writing process. Below I have included both the text and the exam including answers.
