Create Your Own Comic Part 6: Rough Script

Posted: August 16, 2008 in Scifi
Tags: , , , ,

I wrote this brief script which illustrated out would be about 5 pages. I tried to keep my descriptions brief but had specific directions about the shot itself. I did my best to write my other writers working in comics. I tried to be very visual as well as moving the story along. As always, this is a work in progress and will continue to be revised but I think I am off to a great start.

            Pane1 1

Wide of JEDI TEMPLE. We see statues of Jedis from the past MACE WINDU, OBI-WAN KENOBI, YODA, LUKE SKYWALKER, KIT FISTO, some we know and others we don’t.

Panel 2

We SEE a new Jedi Council. Some HUMAN and other ALIEN. MASTER JUT HORT, Nautolan, heads the Jedi Council. Second in Command is MASTER ERO J’ANN.

HORT

I will not support the creation on another clone race. Have we not studied the errs of our ways.

ALIEN JEDI MASTER

We have heard reports of a new threat to the Republic…

J’ANN

Can you confirm such reports with facts, Master (ALIEN JEDI).

Panel 4

ALIEN JEDI MASTER

No. (Pause) But if we wait for evidence of fact, we may be too late.

HORT (off camera)

How so?

Panel 5

HORT

Generations ago, the Jedi were lead down a forged path of lies and deceit by Darth Sidious. We were lead to believe Chancellor Palpatine led us in the best interest to use a clone army. With one order, the Jedi were almost….no more by the very army we trusted.
