TITLE: Tobit (script download)
The Book of Tobit (/ˈtoʊbɪt/)[a] is a 3rd or early 2nd century BCE Jewish work describing how God tests the faithful, responds to prayers, and protects the covenant community (i.e., the Israelites). It tells the story of two Jewish families, that of the blind Tobit in Nineveh and of the abandoned Sara in Ecbatana. Tobit’s son Tobias is sent to retrieve ten silver talents that Tobit once left in Rages, a town in Media; guided and aided by the angel Raphael he arrives in Ecbatana, where he meets Sarah. A demon named Asmodeus has fallen in love with her and kills anyone she intends to marry, but with the aid of Raphael the demon is exorcised and Tobias and Sarah marry, after which they return to Nineveh where Tobit is cured of his blindness.
The book is included in the Catholic and Orthodox canons but not in the Jewish; the Protestant tradition places it in the Apocrypha, and by the Anglican communion recognises it as part of scripture for purposes of edification and liturgy. The vast majority of scholars recognize it as a work of fiction with some historical references.
MOVIE PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

If you are writing your screenplay on a computer, write it as four files. If you are using a typewriter (yes, people still write on typewriters!), write your script in four different parts or modules.
Bare Bones Structure
Being a sometimes forest person myself (and we can treat different projects differently!), I have a shortcut for you to try. I call it Barebones Structure for Forest People.
Your beginning notion of structure therefore can be vague. Maybe you know nothing more than that your story will havemust havea beginning, a middle, and an end. But maybe, even realizing this, at the moment you only know your beginning. Sometimes this is enough. A forest person trusts in the creative process and that solutions can be found during the act of writing.

Like clockwork, the massive ocean swells raise the ship high then dip it down to a sickening collision with the next wave. In unison, the sailors brace themselves for the next impact of water that explodes over the bow and washes violently across the deck. The experience of these sailors is clear by the grace of their movement and stone faces.
US Navy frigate in heavy seas with strong winds and copious snow falling. The ships sails are raised and tightly tied. In the center of the ship is a single stack spewing thick black smoke. SHIPS DECK SAILORS in heavy winter clothing scurry about tying down various equipment and securing sail lines.
