"It's Not A Game"
An Original Screenplay
Theodore K. Rudolph and Robert D. Cunningham
We are going to use our screenplay as a visual
example of how we used the information presented on this
web site to put a screenplay together. We have put comments
throughout the screenplay to help you follow the story,
and also provided some formatting instructions.
The screenplay is our first, and being our
first screenplay we had no knowledge of whether it was good,
or bad. This is why we have also included a script analysis
of our screenplay from screenwriter Paul W. Cooper (see
the Screenwriter of
the Month page for more information on Paul), and the
edited script from Paul. The analysis of the script by Mr.
Cooper is very helpful, because he pointed out all of the
pitfalls that new screenwriters, such as ourselves, can
From the script analysis you will notice that
a rewrite will definitely need to be done on the screenplay.
As we rewrite the screenplay we will post it on the site.
The screenplays and analysis are in
WHAT IS THIS SCREENPLAY ABOUT?
"It's Not A Game" is a romantic comedy about
how Black men and women relate to each other today when
it comes to dating. We know that Black men/ women relationships
is currently a hot topic across the country. Everyone seems
to be asking questions like "Why can't I find a good Black
man today?", or "How come all the Black women I meet today
seem to be playing games?" We wrote this screenplay
to try to address some of these dating questions, and hopefully
provide a little insight into how Black men and women relate
to each other today.
Please let us know how you liked this screenplay,
