Scene storage module

Perhaps someone has already suggested this - When re-writing a scene, there are times when I want to rewrite the scene without losing the original. Usually, I either have to save a seperate file or print the original and not lose it. It would be nice if I could just grab the scene and drop it into a...

Character Intro problem

Ok, I've run into a problem. My main character's dad, when first introduced is asleep. It seems odd to describe the character while he's snoring. Is it ever appropriate to detail the character in a second appearance? That seems odd too.

Any thoughts?

Re: Formatting Question

Chris, it is a spec. I thought the whole page read was to be approximately 1 min. I assume that's what you mean. If not then perhaps I need to re-read my screewriting books :)

Also thanks for the links. I've already begun reviewing them.

Re: Formatting Question

Here's my problem. This small narrative (it's supposed to be small) at the beginning of my script is 3 pages and I confident it's WAY too long. As the narrator tells the story, each dialogue is illustrated by a different sketch. So lets say there's 20 points of dialogue, then there's 20 sketches. So...

Re: Formatting Question

So Kippy,
How would you write in a fairytale book scene? Or in my case how would you write out a series of child sketches?

Re: Formatting Question

Chris, I have another question: In one scene I have a young boy in school. The teacher is welcoming all the students to the class. Then I cut to the family walking home from school. As they're walking home, you can still hear the teacher (V.O.) addressing the class (he's explaining why they're in sc...

Continues

Is it possible to manage MM6 so that when a character speaks, without someone responding, it does not auto-insert "CONT'D"? I find most of the time, when this does happen, It's not continuous dialogue.

Re: As Good As Star Wars

I happen to love Lucas’ work regarding allegories and mythology. I think it’s these parallels, which also draws from the bible, help people relate both to the antagonist and protagonist, in all of us. I recall in an interview when he stated that the reason why Vader has such an emotional appeal to e...

Currently I'm using a header which looks like: SKETCH - COMETS JOURNEY - SPACE The rings of saturn strectch accross the heav...
