Re: Three Act Structure (Part 2)

Since this thread, in particular, and Part 1 have seemed to run their courses, I'll just close it up for now. The topic seems pretty well discussed.

Okay. It is getting a bit long. If folks feel the need to discuss elsewhere, then please keep it relevant and helpful, of course. (You can even discuss in ONE ON ONE to have it be more private, as...

Sure. Yes. You can start losing the reader right off the bat. I just felt and maybe I misunderstood what Joe was asking/taking away from it all, that he was possibly thinking people literally stopped...

Re: First 10 (or 1) page

No. That's a scene from a comedy. I've never heard anyone ever say that or do that.

I don't want to put words in Jeff's mouth by any means, but entirely possible, doesn't mean they will or more...

Though you asked Jeff directly, if I may, I will throw a response in based on what I've seen from people I've worked for and/or done myself over the years. If Jeff chooses to add to the thread, I'm...

Re: Current cost to copyright a screenplay?

Surely, there are a few cases we've never heard about which were probably settled quietly, thus tough to say, of course. But you're right. It could happen regardless, and who knows how the lawsuit...

Re: Current cost to copyright a screenplay?

Yes. It's necessary. Not required, but if you ever need to sue over any issue a copyright will provide you will better compensation including legal fees for having to file the lawsuit, if you when. ...

Re: Current cost to copyright a screenplay?

It used to be $35, but now it looks like it went up to $45. You shouldn't be paying more than that, I'm next to positive.

Just double check what you are clicking on or selecting.

Re: Selling spec vs. selling pitch

My post was primarily directed to Travis, but there are different points in my response which I hope others will take note of and keep in mind. I generally lean more towards the practical, realistic...

Re: Selling spec vs. selling pitch

I think some of the above comments are more than fair & accurate enough, but I'm still going to offer a more contrarian and frank view.

The vast, vast, vast majority of script writers will never,...

Post Done Deal Pro Hits 33,000

Re: LA Area Code...

I think it's overall much better than people think. For every one report on how something went wrong, there are surely tens of thousands that were fine. The media doesn't report on the good...

Re: Need manager/agent suggestions for an opportunity

Our main site. That's one of two key reasons it even exists.

I just ran a search for horror projects set up in the last two years basically. We listed 158. One can look through all those very...

Re: Single Cam vs Multi Cam sitcoms

In brief, single camera looks like a feature script. For a multi-cam script the descriptions are CAPPED and the dialogue is double-spaced. There can also be location and character breakdowns at the...

Re: Writing "gotta" and "gonna" for characters who talk like that?

Ah, sorry, I missed that bit. Trying to do too many things at once.

Along with Prezzy's and TigerFang's comments, just put (French accent) or (in French) under the character's name. Keep it simple. ...

Re: Writing "gotta" and "gonna" for characters who talk like that?

Again, it depends on your intention for the scene or moment. If it's a comedic scene in which a very English-only speaking person ends up lost in the French countryside and they can't understand a...

Re: Writing an action sequence to fit time

Ah. Okay. I just checked a draft of that script, but I don't see that scene in there. The draft is from about three years ago so it very well might have changed during rewrites/polishes or during the...

Re: Writing an action sequence to fit time

First, as others have noted, don't worry about this. Write the key elements that need to happen to make the scene work and propel the story forward. From there, just let the director and actors take...

Re: Writing "gotta" and "gonna" for characters who talk like that?

Yes. You're fine to do that. Don't go so crazy to the point, the reader has no idea what is being said -- unless that's a story point -- but writers do that frequently. It gives the script flavor...

Granted this might be the least exciting example of all time, but I'd suggest doing a little something like this or essentially what you wrote:

Re: Question about "establishing shots"

It can. Again, don't overly worry about it too, too much. But I would suggest for any and all don't do the following type of stuff for example:

Use INSIDE or OUTSIDE instead of INT. or EXT.

Re: Question about "establishing shots"

I know. Wasn't trying to criticize, of course. And sure, use it when you think you need it. You are a filmmaker on the page. But keep in mind once the script gets turned over to a director and a DP,...
