Re: Pilot Question on an Act Out

If the victim does die, then I agree it would be better to end the scene before the actual killing shot.

For the second question... having it shown later, through footage... seems to spoil the...

Re: Pilot Question on an Act Out

Ending on the muzzle flash is fine, in my view. Eventually, you need to show the result, but can even be on another episode.

I'm biased about that, because a Pilot of mine does end with a gun going...

Yes, I can see it can go in many directions. The first season may be you movie (which I suppose ends with HER becoming the new Healer). But what about the next 5 seasons?

Re: Advice on Converting a Feature to a Pilot

Hello, FA4

TV series and Movies are different things and as you know sometimes don't translate well into each other.

You've got to figure out what your story engine is, both external and internal....

Re: How can screenwriters control pace? Any thoughts on unintentional slowness?

Yaso, you need to see some European cinema (and, apparently, Japanese too).
Not to say that you'd like them.
Not to say that I do.

But some stories don't have all the elements you mention, no.

Re: How can screenwriters control pace? Any thoughts on unintentional slowness?

As usual, Ronaldinho speaks (writes) words of wisdom.

I wonder how to apply Hero's Journey or Save The Cat to
2001: A Space Odyssey
or
Psycho

On the other hand, I see no problem to apply them, or...

Well, this lighthouse did bump a character too, didn't it?

Re: Results - Halloween 2015 fun short screenplay contest

Hey, Road Warrior, now you understand why it was The Lighthouse and not, say--Devil's Cauldron.

But I did describe the bar : A typical-fake Irish bar, wood and polished brass. On the wall above the...

Re: Kubrick: Why keeps us invested, when characters don't control their fates?

I hope it'll be a success.

Re: One hour drama format?

Hi, Lisa

Ducky quacks right, read a lot of Pilots/Teleplays.

My impression is that, from less pages to more is:
Cold Open
Teaser
Act One

But if it is labeled Cold Open or Teaser, Teaser or First...

Re: Person's name changes

NMS made up that, to show how giving up the trick then would be a bad idea.

It is not the scene as written in the screenplay.
