Preface: “Dead Cat” is a screenplay written for a film writing class at National Chengchi University. The four of us tackled this exhausting task with great enthusiasm, learning the hardships of converting an ordinary story into a usable screenplay with the proper use of indicators.
Writing “Dead Cat” was extremely fulfilling and a fantastic experience for me personally, as we dug deep into character development and the world of symbolism and nuances. Whatever the outcome, we are proud of our work. – J. Feng
