Re: The Opening - Problem vs. Opportunity

Usually there won't be as much drama in an opportunity as there will be in problem (as in a "life changing" problem).

Re: Claimed Hollywood writer's script formatting notes (are they wrong??)

Valid criticism is one thing but poor advice is worse than no advice even if it's given away for free. In this case, the analyzer is offering advice for a fee when he doesn't have a clue what he's...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

I just have the trial version of Fade In, but I can't find any way to do it. I checked to see if KIT Scenarist will do it and it appears that it will. (It puts the notes on the right panel if you...

Re: Claimed Hollywood writer's script formatting notes (are they wrong??)

I can't speak for Jeff Lowell, but here's part of what the "analyzer" wrote that immediately told me that he was full of crap (and what's written below has nothing to do with Goldman) ... (I left in...

Re: Claimed Hollywood writer's script formatting notes (are they wrong??)

It's not a matter of being able to "take advice," it's a matter of whether that advice sucks or not. This particular advice and analysis sucks, it's total crap. It shows that the analyzer has never...

Re: Screenplay Formatting Guide

That's how observant I'm not ... I didn't even realize there was a book. Thanks for pointing it out.

I'm not a professional, but these "rules" look like pure crap to me.

Screenplay Formatting Guide

I saw this in the announcements a while back, but kind of figured, "this is all taken care of by the formatting software now." But then I realized that some of these questions about formatting are...

Re: ClipCache Pro

That seems to be a common complaint with CopyQ. Lots of advanced features, poor documentation. I admit that I haven't done anything but scratched its surface.

I probably wouldn't waste a lot of time...

Re: Advice on character reaction description

If my advice conflicts with Jeff Lowell's advice just refer to my signature and go with someone who actually sells scripts. (Hint, that's not me.)

Hey, thanks ComicBent. I always like these tips. Of course, being a non-Windows user I can't use ClipCache Pro, but it set me looking for an alternative and I've found an interesting (multi-platform)...

Re: Advice on character reaction description

I use "beat" (actually "pause") a lot, but I'm not a professional writer and I have no prospects of becoming one. So I write the way I like to write and don't worry about it. At some point it's going...

Re: Advice on character reaction description

I tend to overwrite so take what I write with a grain of salt, but this seems a little too much like telling rather than showing -- and it comes across as understated. I'm guessing this is a very...

Re: How important is voice in screenwriting?

The question I answered "no" to was ... In a screenplay, is the voice of the writer, as the OP has described voice, as important as the story?

It doesn't matter how entertaining the writing is, or...

Re: Summer Camp

Anything that doesn't require my attempting to attain some form of writing quality is something I'm keen to look into.

If something can't be arranged I might have to bypass this contest altogether...

Re: Ocean's 8 -- Here We Go Again.

An Amazon warrior outfit, you say? Well ... I didn't know this was a "historical" movie. (I'm sorry, I'm having trouble taking this seriously. Wonder Woman was (is?) based on a comic book. That's as...

Re: Summer Camp

Except I'm too lazy to carry it out. ...

I know, I'll write the same script 12 times but change the name of the characters.

Yeah! That's the ticket!

Re: Ocean's 8 -- Here We Go Again.

I haven't seen (or plan to see) Wonder Woman, but correct me if I'm wrong, isn't this a movie about a woman who mostly runs around in not much more than a bikini? Wouldn't the movie, itself, be...

Re: Ocean's 8 -- Here We Go Again

Oh good grief. I thought the original Oceans 11 sucked and didn't watch any of the others. There's no way in hell I would want to watch what amounts to a gender-changing reboot of a tired (and...

Re: Summer Camp

So, does that mean if I write 12 summer camp screenplays and enter them all tomorrow (no matter how short or crappy they are) I win all the BIG prizes?!

Re: Would you keep reading this?

Re: Really? No thread on Bourdain?

Sorry, but until the news of the suicide I had never heard of Anthony Bourdain. I'm sorry he killed himself. May he rest in peace.
