Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

Gucci posted this because at the top of my original post I asked that members not discuss his pages publicly without his permission.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

Again, I didn't point out Gucci's pages. I didn't make it personal with Gucci. Discussing the style of TELLING, was not personal. It was discussing craft.

And we are not "talking eons apart." Mazin...

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

I didn't use Gucci's pages.

Mazin is no longer active here, but his post on "Summing Up Your Characters" lives on being highlighted front and center in the Done Deal Forums board, which new writers...

Umm, finalact4, you do understand that the SCRIPT PAGES forum is private where members would have to sign in.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

The point was for me to post my work publicly for me to be humiliated like I supposedly caused Gucci to be.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

figment, you're entitled to your opinion. Gucci said it was a good thread. A good conversation. His opinion on this matter is the only one I care about.

Thank you for the tutorial, but after being a member for over a decade, I believe I know how the SCRIPT PAGES FORUM works.

I asked permission, because the SCREENWRITING FORUM is not for posting...

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

Not at all. You know why? Because I'm confident in my writing and what I'm doing. And Gucci's no newbie. He has the same confidence where if a pro tells him summarizing your characters is not good...

I LOVE FEEDBACK.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

If I'm comprehending your post to me correctly, you seem to think that I agree with Mazin that summing up characters is "not good craft." If so, that's not correct. I don't agree with that.

Re: I've got a movie coming out this week!

Congratulations. Must of been a nice surprise. Can you tell us how the script came to the attention of Blumhouse?

Hey, Bono, did you hear that -- "years ago"? Maybe now you won't poo-poo old scripts...

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

In a medium such as film, there's no question that dramatizing is better than summarizing. Craig Mazin had a dogmatic opinion about summarizing ("not good craft") that I just wanted to express that...

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

“technically sounder”

Okay, lets not get all technical on us.

I don’t feel comfortable saying SHOWING is a more “sounder” way to write to a creative person, especially for something as subjective...

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

I won't believe it (being okay with summing up characters) until I actually hear it from Craig Mazin himself.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

In your CARNIVORE thread, with your protagonist’s character introduction, you’ve succeeded 100%. I have no notes to give you on that. You expressed a winning style, tone and voice.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

Oh my God, finalact4, again with the "ego" theory.

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

sc111, the motivation for this thread wasn't because I took offense. It was because Gucci had the wrong opinion about Mazin's point about "summing up your characters."

I thought this would be a good...

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

For character introductions, I am in the SHOW camp, but if the writer's personal taste and style is TELLING it's not wrong. It's just his preference. I'm not gonna show any bias against it unless,...

Re: Note To Gucci: Mazin's Point On "Summing Up Your Characters"

It's statements like this that causes double digit threads. The TELLING camp says it's not wrong and the SHOWING camp says it is wrong.

It's not wrong. It's just the personal taste and style of the...
