If you would like a look at the script for the Wishaw Area Schools Film Project here it is.
It is rather long and it has lots of dialogue in Scots, but it will give you an idea of what we hope to produce when shooting starts in August.
The Queen’s Pyjama’s
A dramatized account of Willie Angus V.C.
Wishaw Schools World War One Heritage Project
Gerry O’Brien, June 2018
This screenplay is the product of collaboration between students, teachers and Community Learning staff from the Wishaw and Shotts area.
After a series of development meetings and discussions the life of Willie Angus was settled upon as the focus for the project and this script was written.
It should be noted that whilst the script does its best to use the known facts about Willie Angus and the events leading to is award of the Victoria Cross, that it is a dramatization of his life. As such, dialogue, characters and places are intended to catch the spirit of the times.
