Topic for film idea: Native American life after Europeans arrived (Create a creative name for your film that is centered around this idea)
Welcome to Hollywood. You are a fledging movie writer and you are about to “pitch” your idea for a historical film. Tell the movie executive (me) about your idea. You must pick a subject that we have covered in this class and describe the best way to adapt it into a screenplay. Why is this movie important? When is the movie taking place? Who would play each part and why?
You must use at least two citations from academic journals, articles, newspapers and/or books .
