Movie Date Trivia

Similar (structurally) to the Mark Goodman trivia game that we did last year, this one also includes Facebook integration. Twenty questions total, with five chosen at random for each round. The quiz "chassis" code is here and can be easily adapted for other trivia quizzes. We shot this at Tad Low's with Andrea Syrtash, who did great despite the noise of the UPS trucks and mosque calls-to-prayer outside. Scripting the questions requires a fine balance. Pat's script wove a fine line between being too serious, too comical, too hard and too easy. Lines and words had to be comparatively short and easy to read because we only had an hour to shoot over 120 lines and we held the script cards next to the camera (no autocue).

The code for this application is here.
