Get Outta Here! Bringing a Script to Life

All your favorite popular movies started off as words on a page. We don’t really think about the process a movie goes through to get from script to screen. There’s an old saying in film – your film gets written three times, once on paper, once on set and once in the edit.

This video by The Script Lab plays a scene from the Oscar Winning film Get Out while simultaneously showing the script pages of the same scene. What’s interesting to see is how different they are from each other. I mean it’s not like they’re different movies, but you get the sense of what actors, directors, and editors all bring to a project and just how much a movie is a creative collaboration.
