  1. story Sending the main idea of screenplay before writing it

    Well, Yes and No "Yes", the vast majority of ideas, even great ones, do not constitute anything except the potential for a great script; there simply is not enough material to flesh out the idea into a fully materialized screenplay or TV Series. It is only after a considerable number of...

  3. story Screenplay adapted to Webtoons

    Oh, I cannot draw. I paid an artist on fiverr to convert a comic script to a series of webtoons images that i uploaded. I was hoping he could do it straight from the screenplay I wrote but he needed some more direction. I think comic artist use Clip Studio Paint application
  4. story Screenplay adapted to Webtoons

    Hi everyone, Check out Episode 01 of my original webtoons story, "Rebecca's Ladder". I adapted it from a screenplay I wrote for a customer who was gracious enough to allow me to publish it as a limited webtoon series. I really like this format and curious if anyone else here has ever adapted...

    Great documentary, just finished watching it... Maury Terry's instincts were spot on and clearly, the idea of death cults secretly running at the highest levels is one I have believed in for years.

    Unknown Screenwriter suggested this one. I had it on pre-order and received it a few days ago... The Hollywood Standard, (3rd Edition just released). Although I have not yet finished it, I am enjoying it much more than Trottier's book. It is short and sweet with beautiful examples.

  13. misc One page challenge

    I have this complex where as I am writing dramatic or romantic scenes + dialogue, I feel as though others are reading it and being reminded of "The Room' by Tommy Wiseau... "You're tearing me apart Lisa!"

    I find it helps to walk away from my script for a day or two before getting in there to do some rewriting. Perhaps it's just me but doing this helps flush out all the noise in my head I have accumulated during a writing session. No matter how hard I try at the moment, I simply end up going in...
