The Brief

Take a pen and a notepad (does anybody still remember what those are?) and as you go about your day, just make some notes. Observe things. Open your ears, your eyes, your nose and really look at them (yes. Look through your eyes and nose).

It might be people, it might be nature, it might be the elements, it might be something more spiritual or whatever. Particularly a whatever!
If you pass by a stranger saying something – write it down.
If you pass by a bin falling in the wind – write it down.
If you pass by a dog peeing on a tree – write it down.
If you pass by a whatever whatevering – write it down.

Once you have enough info written down – see if you can make a fun play out of them… I mean… don’t see if you can – just do!

 

The Excerpt:

SCI-FI ACTOR

Hi, welcome. Thanks for coming today. I’m really sorry you had to see that.

WOMAN

I follow you on Twitter, too. Watching you engage live is better than tennis.

SCI-FI ACTOR

Depends on the match.

WOMAN

Serena Williams. John McEnroe. That caliber.

SCI-FI ACTOR

Oh, well, then. Am I signing something for you?

WOMAN

(passes him a photo)

This, please.

SCI-FI ACTOR

Oh, I loved doing this film. Wow… this is a rare still. (beat) Do I talk to you on Twitter?

WOMAN

No.

MAN

She says you only engage with people who disagree with you.

WOMAN

Honey!

MAN

You did say it.
