This short script is an adaptation of Simon Rich's short story "Center of the Universe," originally published in the New Yorker. The story re-imagines God as a stressed-out office worker, struggling to create the universe to pay off his student loans and pay attention to his girlfriend, Kate, at the same time. In my script, I decided to tell the tale from Kate's perspective, and to give her a voice I found lacking in the original story.
This script demonstrates my proficiency in and comfort with master scene format, and my ability to craft a story for a visual medium.
