    Color Symbolism in Screenplay

    I used the color amber whenever it involved my lead female alien character (i.e., control buttons, transporter beams, emergency lights, etc.) as I wanted everything related to her to be "pure" and non-threatening. On the other hand, the bad guy aliens were always associated with green lasers...

    Will this be copying James Bond too much..?

    Alpha, Beta, Gamma? ...The Greek Alphabet is wide open. Don't worry too much about the "can't you think outside the box" comment. According to everyone on this website , anything you say, do or write is cliche. -Birdman

    Should I choose such a setting?

    The United States doesn't rule any other country other than itself. When the wars we are in are over, we don't take their countries (like Rome and Russia did). Japan is still Japan. Germany is still Germany (both times). Iraq is still Iraq. Italy is still Italy. Korea is still Korea. We...

    Should I choose such a setting?

    Inarius, I find it extremely ironic that you live in Israel and think if America went down it wouldn't affect the balance of the world. The single greatest power ever to evolve in mankind's history dwarfing all other countries in comparison.... and you think life would go on as usual? Here's...

    Should I choose such a setting?

    Josh, You need to read a few posts prior to my replies. Some are complaining about the number of movies based in NYC. "Made them sick" as I recall. Maybe they will also read your reply? -Birdman

    Should I choose such a setting?

    I'm a realist, inarius. If America falls, so goes the rest of the world. To believe anything else is simply not being realistic. I am in no way proud of my country as I see it regressing into a shadow of its formal self, but it represents (or represented) what a country based on individual...

    Should I choose such a setting?

    Ahhhh, ....Maz, Maz, Maz, Do not confuse a "statement of fact" with a Straw Man commentary. The reason why NY is the focus of so many movies is because it IS THE FOCUS of human life. Just like Rome was the focus back in its day, NY is the focus now. NY represents the cumulative force of...

    Should I choose such a setting?

    ...I think this is more based on the personal opinions of people from foreign countries. I'm sorry that the majority of movies are based in American settings, but that's just the way it goes. America thrives on movies, we love them, we breed them and they end up set in the places we are most...

    Should I choose such a setting?

    ...Anyone who is "sick" of movies set in New York has pre-determined personal issues to where they will never be pleased no matter WHERE you placed your movie's setting. That's absolutely ridiculous. -Birdman

    Does this first scene grab your attention?

    Inarius, I even bolded the main point of "Cliche". 1. a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but wiser, or strong as an ox. So if we apply...

    Cliche Definition: "a phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought." 1. a trite, stereotyped expression; a sentence or phrase, usually expressing a popular or common thought or idea, that has lost originality, ingenuity, and impact by long overuse, as sadder but...

    Does this first scene grab your attention?

    Arnie was not a cyborg in Total Recall. Neither was Jason Bourne. And Universal Soldier was a reanimated "dead guy". I've noticed many in this industry have their index finger rigidly poised above the "cliche button" hoping for anything that remotely sounds like it may or May not have been...

    Does this first scene grab your attention?

    The "Wiped-mind Cyborg" Cliché? Okay, ...can you site any example movies to back up this cliché? -Birdman

    Coming up with a title for your "baby"

    I wanted a one-word tile for my SciFi, ...so I made a list of words. I did internet searches on each word I came up with until I found one that had a good sound to it and also was not used my a corporation, group or any other entity. Once I settled on the title, I then purchased the ".com" and...

    Write To Your Budget With Quentin Tarantino

    Here, Inarius,....I'll help you out: (LINK) "Following a Slugline is the "Action" (sometimes called "Action Lines" or an "Action Block") which describes what is happening at the scene (in present tense) and which characters are involved. Important: You always need to add an Action Block (no...
