Re: The Last 10 Days

Anyway, it was fun being back for a bit (like dropping into an ER like show that you used to be on for a 6-7 episode arc in Season 22) -- but see you next time boys and girls.

There are just too...

Re: The Last 10 Days

Reason: politeness


That is the funniest thing I've ever read on this board. Except all my stuff which is just delightful.

Re: Midpoint

No, say whatever you want -- re: the Star Wars thing I thought I found a good summation of the MP -- and honestly I didn't think it would be such a debatable topic -- but that's the DD way! I figured...

Re: Midpoint

Thanks for sharing, Jeff and making this clear. Great to know you do use MP too.

See this is the info I need to seek out. What do pro writers use when writing their stuff -- now that they are in the...

Re: Midpoint

I like the first sentence best. This was well said -- not sure I agree with any of it.

My question -- let's name some movies that don't use the MP that you like then because it's going to be hard...

Re: Midpoint

I was saying, I wanted to discuss how we use the Midpoint in our own writing -- that's way different than arguing/discussing one specific's movie midpoint to me.

Re: The Last 10 Days

I think Crayon you should change your name to Highlighter because that describes your style way more on this board.

Re: Midpoint

I don't really care what the midpoint of a certain movie is -- and I can't believe it can be up for this much debate -- it should be clear. That George Lucas will never make it in this town -- mark...

True -- but I'm talking Jeff more about using a tool you picked up along the way and like.

I'm sure there are things you do, that you learned a long time ago (maybe from books, probably from doing...

Re: Midpoint

We aren't making good art. We are writing spec screenplays to sell. :) There is surely a road make (formula) to what makes a movie work.

Always exceptions, yada yada -- but let's be real. There are...

Re: Midpoint

Found this from some blog talking about Syd Field's breakdown of a New Hope. I think we are all saying the same midpoint. Sometimes it's not just 1 scene. And honestly I recall SPACEBALLS a lot more...

Re: Midpoint

Been long time since I saw Star Wars first one with my screenwriter hat on -- maybe never as I just become a child again watching movies I loved as kid.

But isn't the MP more simple -- our heroes...

Re: The Last 10 Days

I was surprised no response from anyone in that orange log thread. I welcome it. It’s all good you’re all my buddies. We may fight but it’s not real. At least not to me.

I give up Crayon. I don't know what your point is in all this other than to give me a headache and avoid posting actual work YOU ARE DOING in the 'What are you doing?" thread. Do you have a point? It...

Re: The Last 10 Days

Good sharing, Final Act! Inspires others to do the work.

And yes, please -- just put on music and shut off TV. Or at least put on movies or TV shows that are comfort food and you don't have to pay...

Re: Midpoint

JAWS and PREDATOR are my 2 favorite examples of movies that go nicely together but part 1 and part 2 are so distinct. Almost their own movies in the same world. Like a sequel happens during the first...

Midpoint

Do you guys use the Midpoint as guide when you plan out your next movie ideas? I'd quickly says MP is the dividing line between two halves of a movie. One you can clearly see by story beats.

Re: Lit Agent for Dope-Ass Teen Sci-Fi Novel?

So finding a talented writer via query makes them not want to look at queries? Writers sometimes get many offers and don't pick a manager who liked their material. They don't like queries because...
