Cigarette Butts, Poetry by Rebeccah Pope

Genre: Family

Cigarette Butts

My father made me.
Sculpted me out of the cigarette butts he & my mother left
outside the bar where they met.
Each butt falling,
landing
& forming
their foundation.
Accumulating,
into child after
child after child.
Children to sit at his feet.
Tugging at his heart
until he removed the strings.

By: Rebeccah Pope, 2016

Thank you very much! I got a brilliant description of the screenplay content and a very very helpful feedback. I do agree with all the points you have made and am really grateful to know exactly what to do now to improve the script! Thank you also for the kind encouragement!
– Kristine Tauch (A Land Called Fabulous, Feature Script)

I was very happy my movie sold and people got what I wanted to say. The audience totally got it. It made me believe in myself tenfold
– Tingting Liu (Being, Short Film)

I thought the feedback was quite helpful. The notes were very careful and clear, so I sent in another script this year, only to be excited, grateful, and pleasantly surprised to have this script move to the next level.
– Laura Morton (I’m Going Somewhere Else, Feature Screenplay)

It was very pleasing to hear the feedback from the festival. I was flattered. I’m glad our film was well-received.

The festival is a unique opportunity to showcase your work. Not only is the feedback terrific, but I do not know of any other festival that will create a production of the winning works.
– David M. Hyde (The Fireworks Stand, Feature Screenplay)

I thought that the feedback video was one of the best gifts this short film could bring me. Everything the audience said was so precise, every emotion… They captured the essence of the film! I never thought it could go so far. It really inspired me to keep on working.
