Bare-Root Tree. When a little girl, Elle, plants a tree at a very young age, both Elle and the tree are inseparable as they grow tall and get older together as years go by, but when Elle gets terrible news about the future of her apple tree, will she be able to figure out a way to save the thing that she has called home for so many years?

What do you think is the importance of Storyline?

I feel like this publication is important because like other journals and magazines that are distributed around campus, that feature poetry, prose, short stories, and different forms of artwork whether it be paintings or photography, it’s good to have a platform for other creators to shine where they can showcase their talents while providing the exposure to a different artform of creativity and storytelling.

What inspired your screenplay?

The inspiration behind my screenplay came from the love of animated short films and the way that the creators are able to tell a story in a short amount of time, usually with minimum dialogue almost like a silent film. I wanted to create a coming of age and heartfelt story that focused on a character growing up and going through changes just by showing it with the use of montages, time jumps, and flashbacks to show and create the atmosphere.
