Stowaway – Short Script Review (Available for Production) - posted by wonkavite

Laptop-Shorts

Stowaway

Anne Boleyn has escaped the Tower of London and seeks safe passage out of England. With the help of a young fishmonger, can she evade capture by Charles Brandon? A man determined not to fail his king…

Historical scripts – they’re such a tricky thing. A lot of history is downright dull. And when the wrong subject is chosen (or executed incorrectly), the result can be a cinematic nightmare… or an exposition laden snorefest.

And yet, historical scripts have such potential. To entertain. To educate. To bring a deceased culture and time back to living, breathing life.

When done correctly, such scripts look a lot like Stowaway.

Set in London 1536, Stowaway imagines a scenario where Anne Boleyn evaded the executioner’s ax. Hidden away in a warehouse, she awaits word from Henry Percy – who seeks to secure his love safe passage to Denmark on a ship. But the clock is ticking. For Duke Charles Brandon is on the hunt. Aware of Anne’s escape, he prowls the fish market, bribing everyone he meets for clues. One of the commoners he approaches is young fishmonger Bryce. And when Bryce discovers Anne’s whereabouts, he knows he has a grave decision to make…

In the masterful hands of writer Elaine Clayton, Stowaway brings 1536 England to vivid life. Reading the script, one sees the olde-world laid out before them, and can almost smell the fish market (a good or bad thing, depending on one’s point of view.) Read this script, and you’ll find yourself caring for the characters – and wanting to know more about them. Several centuries after the real life versions have turned to dust, that’s a remarkable writing feat.

Expertly written, Stowaway is a historical gem. One that deserves to be produced in full glory.

About the writer: Elaine Clayton is a London-based screenwriter, who has written several well-received shorts and is currently working on her first feature length scripts. Comfortable in a broad range of genres, Elaine has an innate sense of structure and arc development. Contact her at Elaine_clayton (AT) Hotmail(.)co(.)uk

Budget: Ok. Let’s talk budget. Settings include a fisherman’s wharf and several secondary locations. And everything needs to look authentic. Period clothing would be required for the four main characters, and a number of extras. Needless to say, this is one script that couldn’t be done on a shoestring. And yet… such requirements aren’t insurmountable. For instance, the script describes a ship. But do we really need to see it in the water? Or would a shot of the ramp suffice? For a creative director with a decent budget… this script could still be shot as a work of art.
