“No” is a short story/script genre mix created for a genre blending assignment. I incorporated the short story genre to provide insight into the main character’s thoughts while using script format and language to emphasis visuals.
A list of Character Biographies for my script “The Killing Game”. A script class assignment called for detailed biographies of the characters in our scripts, and my script called for several characters. The amount of diversity was an aesthetic choice.
Feature Film Script

Magical Realism Short Story

Colors is an experimental novel, written as a high school senior project, that is a collection of short stories that tell an overarching story. Each short story followed one specific character in a group of friends, each afflicted with a color, and the story was written with the style of one specific genre in mind. Although there is a natural progression, each story was written to be able to be a stand-alone piece of work. “The Gray” focuses on a romance, “The Red” focuses on action-adventure, “The White” is a thriller with aspects of a mystery, “The Blue” is an action-drama, “The Yellow” is a drama, and “The Black” is a mix of these genres (and the final story where everyone is reunited).
