Maria wrote a script. She wanted to make a movie. The script was a comedy. It was based on how her mom and dad had met each other. They had met in high school. Her mom was late for class. She was running down the hall. Her dad was standing in the hall reading a poster. Her mom crashed straight into her dad and knocked him over. He ended up with a big bump on the back of his head. Maria wrote the script while she was at the beach. Now she was home and it was time to get started. She needed a camera. She needed actors. She needed a crew. She needed a director's chair. She knew what she needed, it was now all about finding those things. She had a plan.
