About this submission

Scripted explores themes of uncertainty and fear of the future through the lens of fun, blockbuster sci-fi. I wrote the first draft when I was 18, after having my full-ride scholarship to college revoked due to high demand. It was April of senior year, and no other college would take new applications. For months, I questioned why uncertainty has to be so prevalent in life - a question Scripted asks.

I also wanted to explore uncertainty in an entertaining way, which sci-fi and time-travel allowed for. Scripted embraces the structure and production value of a feature, despite being a short.
