[The Limit] Banality vs. Multiple Drafts

Yesterday I wrote a terrible version of a crucial scene and I don't care. Writing a feature film on spec means having the time to make sure a scene works. In this case, making it easy for the audience to empathise with the grief and anger the main characters feel.

Yesterday's scene was too on-the-nose. So I've brainstormed up a lot of ways to make it work. After I finish this nasty little action sequence at the end of Act 1, I'll head back, try out a couple of the most promising approaches.
