Script Guidelines

Post by El Brenty » Sun Dec 07, 2003 11:39 pm

I'd just like to introduce a guideline to do with scripts if that's ok with everyone.

Insteading of saying "My Script", or "A New Script", or "My nextdoor neighbour's script", could you actually give it a working title in the subject header instead? It's just that this section is getting a bit hard to follow for reference purposes.

Just a suggestion, hope y'all can at least consider it.

I'll try to keep that in mind next time I post, maybe if the title isn't super clear you could say action script, title, or my star wars script, etc.

Some script titles may start getting edited slightly to help portray the most minimum information as to what the script is about.

i presume CamClub is on about editing the thread title rather than the script. I for one think it’s a good idea as ‘my new script’ crops up all the time and is a bit annoying, especially when the film actually has a title.

How detailed does everyone go when writting a script? I find that from the start I include camera actions, lighting, scribbles in the margines for future storyboard thoughts (my mind drifts and so I have to writer it down as it comes) until by the time I am looking at filming anything I have everything worked out, I find that this way if in post ed something looks toilet, from my pre work i can reproduce the exact same scene, re shoot and drop it in without worring about continuity. does any one else go 'crazy' over scripts ?

I make scripts in a note form, cause in the end I am the only one who has to read them, it's really terrible, so I never post scripts, because no one would understand them. Anyway, I think someone's gonna get angry that we're using a sticky fro chatting…
