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.

I thought Zoetrope died years ago.

Re: Copyright and who to send your script to

My understanding is that, unless you plan substantial changes, you can copyright your script now and the copyright will be good as long as you're only making minor changes or correcting grammar or...

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.

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

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...

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

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



Just guessing... I probably wouldn't tweak them more than a 1/4" on either (or both) side(s). The width...

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

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).

If you have any interest in...

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...

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

I think this is probably the best of the bunch, if you're actually trying to break into the business. Relatively small, clean application that basically does everything. This is probably what I would...

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

I checked the one feature screenplay I've actually written, which is slightly over 100 pages, and its word count is almost 17,200. So I think you 20K for 120 pages (or so) is a pretty close...

Re: Reformatting from left-justified

Sounds like you've basically written in Fountain format so this should only take a few minutes (maybe half an hour) to format. Definitely no need to buy Final Draft (or any application).

I'm still using the free Trelby. Development basically ended in 2012 and the Windows version still works fine. (There was a small change needed in the code of the Linux version in 2015 to keep it...

Re: Final Draft 10

I've had the same issue here for a while now. I don't know what changed but it's become part of my normal routine to remove extra spaces when I post.

Re: Final Draft 10

A quick way to test to see if your .fdx files are good (when Final Draft is not working) is to go to either YouMeScript or 'Afterwriting (https://youmescript.com/ or https://afterwriting.com/) and...

Re: Phone calls

So... it looks like you're claiming that Skype doesn't always work as advertised. Is that a fair assessment of your position? :rolleyes:

Re: Loving your character too much

Personally I think that's when your character "comes alive" when he or she can't do what you originally intended them to do. Change the plot. Let the character be himself/herself.

Re: Phone calls

I would just write...

Jack checks his phone. Missed call from Charlie.

Yeah, technically that's telling, not showing, but everyone will immediately "see" what's happening.

The people at WriterDuet have had another (non-collaborative) version of their software (WriterSolo) for about a year. I believe that, if you purchased it for (I think) $40 you could download an...

Re: How Tone and Voice = Writer's Style (attitude and personality)

Re: Scene with no dialogue
