Hey ! I was planning to be a silent lurker seeing if this place is for me but forum rules seems to be set in stone so here I am. Been carrying a camera with me everywhere I go since... 5 years old (grandad was a photographer so all the shitty used up cameras where at my mercy). Graduated music school - that didn't hit the right spot, started writing shifty fantasy stories - just not enough, went to photography - closer but not fully satisfying. I have a head full of ideas, mystical creatures lurking about with characters that just won't give up but I can not seem to find a way to expel it beyond my own imagination. So I thought joining a like minded community might help. Almost like a support group or therapy session of sorts. :lol: Is this the right place? Let me know because I am lost ! :bag:

P.S. English is my second language so excuse any eye stabbing mistakes I might have made.

awesome have any of your stories been written in a screenplay format yet ?
it takes a little practice to adapt to the style.

Oh screenplays absolutely scare me. I tried it a few years ago with some free software but I was wrapped deep in a big life change so I paused all my creative work and only recently started getting back into it. Any suggestions for a software that would help kickstart a learning curve?

¡Hola! Soy Shimabuku.

I'm not sure that any of the software is great for teaching you the format. But if you want to play around with it a bit without a financial commitment,
but Celtx is pretty straightforward and has a free version. I like Final Draft best, but I'd hold off on spending money for that unless/until you're sure that it's something you want to pursue.

:hi: Do these mystical creatures talk to you inside your head? If so, you may be beyond help ... But I'm sure it'd be fun to try. :cool:

Haha, does it count if they're talking to my other made up people while in my head? You might be on to something here... 😁

Lol I love your welcome post.

What kind of stories interest you?
Well thank you, I put my heart and wits into it. Anything mystical really. Magic, fairies, demons, witches, werewolves, dragons, other universe(s). My grandma was a teacher so since I was 4 yo I started reading these mythological type of books (she had different myth books translated from different European countries) and that kind of brain washed me I suppose? It made me into a book worm and by age 10 I already had read every fantasy book in our small town library no matter how shitty it was so I'm corrupted 😄

Okay, this prompted me to respond. I would have never known. After reading several of your posts, I'm quite impressed.

You must have a good eye for shot composition. Did you ever make any videos?

Graduated music school - that didn't hit the right spot, started writing shifty fantasy stories...
Music can be fantasy oriented. I'm rather fond of the soundtrack to LEGEND (Tangerine Dream version).

When I was in school, music classes didn't hit the right spot, for me either. I didn't relate to traditional instruments. I was interested in soundtracks and weird soundscapes. Electronic scores (like HALLOWEEN and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK) influenced me enough to buy a synthesizer. All I needed was a different sound palette. I could finally make soundtrack type sounds. From that point on, I was hooked.

If you haven't already done so, this topic deserves it's own thread. I'm not sure if you have the patience for learning 3-D animation programs, but I have a friend who makes stuff like this:


Or perhaps, you want to go a different direction. If you post about that subject, you might get some good suggestions.
