Re: Results - Winter is Coming contest

Thanks for the voting for the little robot... at least I didn't name him "Pipsqueak" — only Pip "who squeaked." That's something, anyhow.

My votes went this way... 1. Them Bones (because it...

Re: The next writing exercise

Pick up an Alphasmart Neo and you can write anywhere — three AA batteries last about a year. And (supposedly) Neos can be washed in the dishwasher (though i wouldn't do it). Just send your file...

Re: Spec or shooting?

Like TigerFang said, just get rid of the camera mention — "we see" is basically the same thing, but it's not as mechanical.

I agree with you, the first example reads better than the second....

Re: Hey, kid

I agree. It may technically be the "right way" to do it but it would make the script a pain to read.

Re: Shout if you're interested

For us stupid person who can't keep up... the deadline is (September 1st or 7th?)... and the theme is just something about winter? I'll try to pay attention Mr. Dpaterso now that I'm back in Idaho...

Re: Zoetrope?

Triggerstreet is the right name, but I think that IMDB review was for something they started after the original concept (more like Zoetrope) had died. I think the original Triggerstreet lasted about...

Re: The Hunt (Cancelled!)

What's the "common sense" in banning an AR-15 (a standard semi-automatic rifle) simply because it looks like an assault weapon? And guess what? The minute that AR-15's are banned, someone is going to...

Re: The Hunt (Cancelled!)

And an AR-15 is not an "assault weapon." It just looks like one. I don't know why people like them, but there's nothing different between an AR-15 and a semi-automatic hunting rifle. An AK-47 is a...

Re: The Hunt (Cancelled!)

It wasn't a law, it was an executive decision. And that decision left too much leeway. Point a finger at someone and his right to "keep and bear arms" was removed. Just like that. Can you imagine...

Re: Zoetrope?

I guess I'm confusing it with another one that worked similarly. I can't remember its name now. (For some reason the word "tiger" keeps coming up, but I don't know if that makes any sense.)

Re: Shout if you're interested

Have you seen cute little flowering weeds? A little water and they turn in hideous, sharp-edged, bug-infested, gigantic thistles. Much better to present the baby weed, some of the "lesser sighted"...

Re: Yet another movie...

I got it now. I didn't read your original post close enough. I think most people think of teachers as self-sacrificing (struggling) and giving, so when they want that kind of character it's a good...

Re: Shout if you're interested

Coherency optional? If so, I could have one done tonight. But "winter coming?" It's 101 degrees here with 9,999 and 99/100% humidity. Winter is just a hopeful dream.

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

Sounds like you've accomplished what you set out to do at the beginning of this thread. Now the thread has gone another direction (which happens a lot here).

Best of luck.

You can also download extra templates from Fade In's site. One of those templates is Final Draft — and that can be made your default template on startup (if that's what you want). (Fade In also...

Fade In is a great application. If I was a serious writer I would probably own it.

That's odd. I've never had any trouble installing KIT Scenarist but it's almost always been on Linux (though I have tried it on a couple different Windows installs).

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

Just curious if you're using A4 or Letter sized paper. A4 will lower the page count but, if it's for the US market you'll probably want to use Letter size. (Not that I really know much about...
