Re: NaNoWriMo

I feel like I'm in the novel's voice pretty well now, and I think I've finally managed to let go of the editor part of me that keeps wanting to go back and make changes. I hadn't developed...

Re: The first movie you remember seeing in a

So, wow, I still have that "E.T." book. I got a hope chest when I was a teen, and I put the book in it because one day I was going to make movies. I must have packed it up each time I've moved and...

Re: The first movie you remember seeing in a

"The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again." My older brother and his girlfriend took me after my parents picked it out. I was 6 or 7. The screen was huge, and I thought it was cool that we got to have...

Write-ins

Anyone care to share tips about making the most of group writing situations, where people get together and write at the same time?

Re: "how much did u spend money on your scripts?"

The producer/director of our film is currently seeking distribution (and by currently, I mean probably as I'm typing this, as he's down in L.A.). It's a feature that cost about $10,000 US to make,...

Re: NaNoWriMo

I'm up to about 3,800 words, but I have the whole day free. I feel like I'm finally settling into a rhythm. I write faster on weekends, removed from the post-work stress. If anyone's interested, I've...

Re: ABC/Disney Fellowship - Genres

Condolences and congratulations, however they apply. Is there a list of finalists somewhere? Anyone here on it?

It's cool to see so many DD folks doing well. Uplifting. It's been interesting reading...

Re: NaNoWriMo

A mere 855 words from yesterday, but I had to wrap up some other business before I could start writing. I'm rusty at novel style, and I'm sure I'll get faster as I adjust. And when I can write on the...

Re: How financing happens

Thanks for the answer. I think both projects have potential to attract an audience. Then again, I wrote them, so how's that for arrogance?

I was surprised by how easy it was to write up a one-page...

Re: NaNoWriMo

Freak-not! In a month, it will all be over.

I'm pretty excited. I've got my stack of 74 scene cards by the computer, have cleaned the house, stocked the cupboards and returned the library books. I...

Re: How financing happens

I'm writing up a synopsis of a completed script. The producer plans to use it as a tool to get funding.

I figured it wasn't just a matter of going down to the Movie Savings and Loan, but I thought...

Re: Does anyone smoke joints anymore?

I thought that this post was about making a scene authentic, not about the morality of drug use.

I think it's wise for anyone who wants to write about a subject to do so with authority. Those who...

Re: two films with the same title

You can't copyright a title. If the title is recently released or popular, it's a good idea to avoid it.

Re: Chick flicks

I didn't consider "Erin Brockovich" to be a chick flick. Yes for "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," which I liked. I also like "Waiting to Exhale." Is the idea that any film with a female...

How financing happens

Could someone give me a quick run-down on the financing process for smaller production companies? The curious writer version, not the producer version.

So, I turn in my hot little synopsis. What...

Re: Does anyone smoke joints anymore?

I could believe that he would give her a toke or the rest of one of his, especially AFTER looking at her breasts and is hoping to impress her, but the scene doesn't ring exactly true for me. Is your...

Depending on the director, that could be one continuous shot.

There is actually a Hungarian piglike monster called "Beast." There's also the multiheaded Sarkany. I checked out "Giants, Monsters & Dragons" by Carol Rose (which someone could buy me for Christmas,...

Re: Where Have all the Theme Songs Gone?

I would argue that "Lost" falls at least partially into the sci-fi realm, and it isn't unusual for sci-fi shows to have musical introductions, going back to "Doctor Who," "The Twilight Zone" and...
