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: Summer Camp

What?! Well, that's no good. Nobody is going to vote for my crap. Are you sure there's no way around this voting thing?

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?!

Whoa, dude!

Re: Would you keep reading this?

I don't know how other people took it, but my point in quoting Shane Black's script was to show that a good, vivid, script can be written (and sold and turned into a movie) even though it breaks just...

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.

Re: Would you keep reading this?

As far as I can tell, none of these were written by first time writers (as was Shane Black's "Lethal Weapon"). So a newcomer with a new idea, versus established writers who, for various reasons, had...

Re: Is it acceptable...

I definitely would not do this. I don't know what your scene is, but usually there's something that stands out. Describe that clearly and let your readers fill in some of the other blanks.

I don't...

Re: Conflict - How important it really is?

Good grief. Overreact much? I don't know how old you are, but I remember when AIDS first hit the news. From the 60s up until that point it had pretty much been a "sexual revolution" "free-for-all"...

Re: Would you keep reading this?

Bullsh*t. You selectively quoted me and attempted to make me say what I didn't say.

Here's my full quote again (without your selective snips).



I think "vividly putting me into the scene" is not...

Re: Conflict - How important it really is?

I think the only movie I've watched in this list was Forrest Gump and I think for each movie like Forrest Gump, you've probably got 10,000 not like Forrest Gump. I guess what I'm saying is that I...

Re: Is revenge only for anti-heroes?

No. Just call revenge "justice" and you've basically got about every Western movie ever made. I think, though, if you want people to like your character, there has to be that moment when he "comes to...

Re: Would you keep reading this?

It could be. For me, though, the story the visuals overcome the "cute-isms." If someone wrote a crappy script and copied Shane Black's style, it would be insufferable. But Shane Black vividly...

Re: Results - "That short script you didn't finish" contest

I like your characters, mood and description. I'm not sure why your entries haven't done better. I sure wouldn't worry about these "contests" too much, though.

Everything seems pretty quiet on Done Deal Pro now. About the only time you can get any one riled up is when you start talking about screenwriting "gurus." I hate to admit it, but I think these...

Re: How important is voice in screenwriting?

I haven't seen the Fundamentals of Good Writing but, I'm guessing, it's a book to teach you how to write. Voice is not something that can be taught. It's something you (personally) bring to the...

Re: How important is voice in screenwriting?

I don't think a confident and competent writer has "different voices" -- different writing styles but not different voices.
