    Thanks for the love for this video! A few things:
    1) Emily used Final Draft 11.
    2) Many people have asked us about the length of the video — the clock was paused every time we asked Emily to explain what she was doing.
    3) What movie genre should we do next?

            I hope Emily Carmichael will find a perfect story for Jurassic World 3 also know as Jurassic park 6

                      This confuses me because she's obviously very talented so why was Pacific Rim Uprising so tragic in terms of the story

                          Sad thing is, I wish we could see this short screenplay on film. I've seen scripts where the writer has wrote down where the camera is placed and where it moves. If you're the writer and director of the movie then you would.

                                It’s completely unnecessary in terms of screenwriting, but maybe that’s just how she likes to do it. Perhaps she likes to condense her writing because it looks neater, if that makes sense.

                              Tbf this process of writing would be a great tool for students to learn. Even for storytelling. So many people struggle thinking of a good opening, because of taught structure. Seems like a fun way for people to play around with ideas working how she does.

                                      This is longer than 7 minutes. That 7 minutes shouldve included thinking time.

                                                        she kinda cheated. she kept stopping and thinking about what she wanted to write and the clock would keep restarting. THAT WASNT IN THE RULES!
