CINESTUDY (formerly Framelines) presents an Interactive Project and EDIT CHALLENGE!
Anyone can download the raw footage and edit the scene together however you want.
Split Edits, also called L-Cuts/J-Cuts are a common editing technique. This scene is especially tailored to demonstrate this and allow you to practice using split edits.
Below you can read the script and download the footage, then edit your own version of this short scene, and upload it to any sites, as long as you use our complete credits and use the hashtags! We want YOU to be this film’s EDITOR!
During this COVID-19 crisis, the creators of Cinestudy have been affected financially. Please consider a donation to support the artists and educators that are giving these free filmmaking projects to the public. Any amount can help! Thank you.

Here is the screenplay for the scene:
EXT. HOSPITAL – DAY
Cars pass by a modern, crisp hospital building.
INT. HOSPITAL – DAY

The results from your tests came
back and I have some bad news.
What is it?

What? What’s that?
It’s lung cancer. I can make you
some referrals for an oncologist
for treatment options.
That’s impossible. I just came in
because I’ve had this cough. For
only two weeks.
I am sorry.
The DOCTOR exits, leaving JANET and BOB alone to deal with
I can’t be working doubles while
you’re dealing with this. It’s hard
enough at the shop as it is.
JANET turns away from BOB.
And how are the kids going to
handle this? Oh Janet, you don’t
deserve something like this.
All you have to do is use the credits, either on screen on in the description. A lot of people put in the time and talent to make these clips for everyone to use, so please don’t forget to credit them.
