    Plot problem because of topic

    Hi, guys! I’m working on a superhero project. It’s about teens, whose parents are superheroes. Those kids go together to a high school. (I know I told a lot about this.) But I can’t always tell about the teen’s problems. That’d be more a telenovela. Am I right? And I can’t let them fight at the...

    Villains. One of the most important characters, if you would ask me. I mean, can you imagine Luke Skywalker without Darth Vader? Or Batman without Joker? I think you answer is “No!”. In one of my old projects, the ghost of a woman hires one of the main characters to find her murderer. Is it...

    Keeping viewer curious - any tip?

    Game of Thrones is one of the best TV shows ever; if you’re looking for good storytelling. There is no clear story structure. There is always surprise! I mean, for example, in Scooby Doo, you know what happens next. But that ain’t good for a successful idea. The viewer has to being kept curious...

    How can I write horror without disgust

    So, I finished my characters and their obstacles (character arc). Now my question is: How do I write horror with less blood and disgust. I mean, I wanna watch a horror movie. I don’t wanna stay barfing in the corner. That’s very seldom in the horror genre. How do I do that?

    My (male) character’s background

    Hey, guys! Since I told you about my idea, I changed a lot. For example, my female protagonist’s name isn’t Luna anymore. Now I decide its Mara. – But that’s not important for this thread yet. I also created a background story for the character Raymond. I want to know if it’s cheesy now. (Yah...

    Is this idea good enough for science fiction?

    At the moment, I got so many projects that I couldn’t count them. One of them belongs to the science fiction genre. (Because of spaceships, aliens and that other stuff.) Now in this universe the spaceships are boosted by crystals. My idea is that they’re more than just gas. I thought about that...

    This weekend I had my creative flow on superheroes. So, I decided to dig up an old project. The superhero web series. But I haven’t any idea what could happen. I have my series’ world, but not what could happen each episode. In VGHS (what’s one of my inspiration sources) they are trained to...

    Urgh! Got double standard users in my school - what do you thnk?

    I don’t know if you know this situation. But sometimes I hate my classmates for their double standards. No joke! Many of them are really a piece of sh***. For example, today, I hear so “wonderful” patters like, “Hey! How stupid are you actually” or “Why do you want to make skip the lessons by...

    Is Final Draft so good like everyone tells?

    I use Celtx for writing screenplays. (I like it because it’s for free.) And I wrote some screenplays with this program already. But so many writers say that Final Draft is the best one you can find! So, should I invest in this software? I mean, it’s the industry standard! However, $250 are very...

    I create a slideshow for the graduate ceremony. (The other student need a background.) You know I use the software “HitFilm”. And I got the question: can HitFilm create a pictures-in-picture-thing. And if “Yes” how? I need this for someone, who makes a dance á la 70s disco. P.S.: I don’t make...
