Burying The Truth script by Zack Akers, filmed. Repeatedly. - posted by Don

Zack “Splatter Boy” Akers’ short script Burying The Truth (4 pages, pdf format) was selected by the entire Image and Sound class of Grand Valley State University (without Zack’s permission) as their final project.*

You can bury many things, but is the truth one of them?

There are seven (at last count) versions.

or you could watch this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one .

You can talk about the script on the Discussion Board or comment on the films here. – Don

*However, in a total douche move, nobody from Grand Valley State University’s Image and Sound class asked Zack for permission to use his script.

Film students. If you find a cool script on the site, don’t make a douche move. Ask the writer for permission to use the work. 99.99% of the time, they will be delighted for you to use their work. Heck, I will even help you contact the writer. But, please, don’t just take a work from the site without asking the writer. You might end up being labeled a douche. Remember, the moment you post your video based on a stolen piece of work to YouTube, it is no longer considered “For Educational Purposes Only”. YouTube is a commercial site that derives revenue from advertising.
