- The Instagram account Script to Screen compares movie screenplays to the final scene.
- You can see just how much directors, actors, editors, and everyone else puts into the final result.
- The account has given this treatment to dozens of movies, from “Get Out” to “The Wizard of Oz.”
Every movie takes a journey from the page to screens, and an Instagram account shows exactly how far that journey is.
Script to Screen takes scenes from movies and plays them alongside the same pages from the script. That way, you can see exactly what the scene looks like in script form and how it’s translated into a movie. By doing so, you can analyze how much directors, editors, actors, and everyone else involved in the production bring to the movie.
Here, for example, is the famous “sunken place” scene from last year’s “Get Out.” Watching the movie, you may just think of a script as a bunch of dialogue, but there’s plenty of important detail from the script that goes unsaid, yet still establishes the tone and pace of what you see in the final result. A lot of that only comes across because of the talent of Daniel Kaluuya and Catherine Keener.
Jordan Peele, who wrote and directed the movie, gave the account his endorsement on Twitter.
Script to Screen has given dozens of other movies the same treatment. Here’s the piano scene in “Call Me by Your Name.”
And the “I am your father” scene in “Star Wars: Episode V.”
The “He’s wired in” scene from “The Social Network” is unforgettable.
And this scene from “Lady Bird,” written and directed by Greta Gerwig, shows some differences.
And here’s the classic “We’re not in Kansas anymore” scene from “The Wizard of Oz.” The set really brings the scene to life.
