How Not to Write a Screenplay-Christmas

I intentionally wrote this garbage Christmas screenplay to honor Christmas.

INT. SANTA’S TOY FACTORY – THIRD FLOOR – TOY SOLDIER ROOM – 23RD DECEMBER – 07:54am

SANTA ( eighties ) a large, jolly, rose-cheeked, long, white bearded, fatman, dressed in red and white, with a Santa hat, jollies along the conveyor belt of his toy soldier room in he third floor of his toy factory, “Santa’s Toy Factory”.

An Elf ( twenties, 4’8 ), dressed in all green and red walks past him. Another elf ( twenties, 4’9 ), also dressed in all green and red, carries a box of plastic ( meamt for the toy soldiers ), and brings it to the other end of the factory.

SANTA CLAUS:

“Ho, ho ho!” He jollied.

“Where are my reindeer?” He asked.

BLITZEN ( reindeer ) morphs through the walls.

BLITZEN:

“Hello Santa! Can we play games tonight?” The black-nosed reindeer requested.

SANTA:

“My, dear Reindeer. We cannot waste time tonight! We have toys to make, but I correct myself. Go to your reindeer bretheren and have a jolly ol’ time! He said.

BLITZEN:

“Sure thing Father Christmas!” The reindeer commented.

SANTA:

Now my beautiful elven specimen. Get back to work, so that the children of our esteemed Earth can have a jolly time when I break into their houses and eat their milk and cookies!” He applauded.
