Radio Play Project

Murder Mystery Radio Play Project
This is a group work project. Your group is going to write a Radio Play script. The theme of the play will be a murder mystery. Before you can begin you must make some choices.
1 – What? We already know this scenario; a murder has taken place.
2 – Where? Where will the play take place (at a school, the mall, a Halloween party, the zoo…)?
3 – Who? Who is in your play and what is their relationship to each other? Are they friends, strangers or enemies?
Use this table to create your characters.

Who is the Protagonist (the good guy/girl)? This is ONE person.
Name and describe them.
















Who is the Antagonist (the bad guy/girl)? This is ONE person.
Name and describe them.

Who supports the Protagonist?
One or multiple characters
Name and describe them.

Who supports the Antagonist?
One or multiple characters
Name and describe them.


Now it's time you create the plot of your murder mystery!

Radio Play Plot Mountain
Exposition – In this section you will introduce your characters and backstory.



























Beginning Action – In this section we will see the first glimpse of conflict.
Rising Action – In this section the conflict escalates.
Climax – In this section the conflict reaches its peak (example – someone dies, is kidnapped, gets into a fight, gets arrested…).
Falling Action – In this section the conflict begins to resolve.
Resolution – In this section the conflict is resolved. The resolution does not have to be good. It is simply a means to an end (example – the missing person’s body is found, the most lovable character is sentenced to life in prison…).


Silent Film History

Silent Film History




Silent Film Project - Your group will use your mime, pantomime and combat mime scenes to create a silent film by mapping it out on a storyboard.

Storyboard - A sequence of drawings, typically with some directions and dialogue, representing the shots planned for a movie or television production.



Silent Film Project

-         Create a storyboard to map out your planning for your Silent Film.

What should be on my storyboard?

Shots and Signs - Each square represents a shot (video recording of scene work) or sign (written dialogue or narration). The squares are designated for writing descriptions of what happens in your scenes/shots or to show what your signs will state.

Types of Shots - Close-up, Long and Mid-range (You should have at least one close-up and mid-range shot in your film). You will receive three storyboard sheets, one for each section of your film (Beginning, Middle, Ending). Each sheet contains six squares for shots/signs. You may not need to use all six squares for each section.

What is on a sign?


Dialogue - "Oh no! Watch out!!!"

Description – The next day….
