What was your first screenplay about?

We all wrote our first ever screenplay at some point, and I want to know what your movie would have been called and what it was about. The first one I can remember involved a high school class of girls who were fed up with a group of boys harassing them, so they hatch a scheme to get the boys back after they go a little too far one school day. I didn't get very far into the story before I shelved it and then inevitably tossed it. Bear in mind, this idea came about from when I was in high school. But it was one of the things that interested me in screenwriting going forward.

Oh wow, this is a tough one. I remember writing a lot of screenplays growing up, and I don't remember the majority of them. One that I can kind of remember, was a script for a period piece, taking place in the 60s, about a rock group that's history is erased after they decide to travel through time. It was an odd one, and I don't remember most of it, I just remember a rock group traveling through time to save their catalog of music. haha! But yeah, I don't have that script anymore, and it was never finished.

Honestly, my first one was a bit too raunchy. I was kinda offensive growing up, so my first script would have gotten me cancelled if it was still around. I wrote half of it, but had a friend look it over and he was like; "This is not going to ever get made." and I shelved it. And funnily enough, the laptop I wrote it on ended up corrupting the file anyway, so maybe it was for the best lol.
