Wow, I haven’t been here in a while. There’s Facebook and Twitter, so it’s not like I’ve been away.
So, over a month later and where do I find myself? Working hard on a logline – around 30 words, summarising about 90 minutes of movie that hasn’t even been written yet. But this is apparently how it’s done.
I say “working hard”, but the logline is done now, so I can move onto the outline and synopsis.
I bet you can’t guess which one is meant to be done first.
I do enjoy scriptwriting, but it’s the internet – EVERYBODY is a scriptwriter. Lucky me, my “field” is filling up fast.
Still, I think even at this stage, I have created more “art” than half that lot.
But my point is, I wanted to actually write a book, and I will, but right now, scriptwriting is something that needs to be done – a book is my Everest, but a script is Mt. Kosciusko compared to that. Nowhere near the struggle, plus it’s much closer to my childhood dream of actually filming movies.
Not just movies, but stories, stories I made. For me, that’s mostly been because as a kid they always seemed to make anything into a movie, even stupid things that nobody could possibly care about – like this movie I saw about this dog, I think it was lost or dying or something, then it wasn’t and some lady who may not have even been the dog’s owner comes and collects it. It even had a stupid slow motion “running towards each other” thing. It was retarded.
I’m also pretty awesome at storyboarding.
Anyway, looks like I’ll be working on a “screenplay” for some time now.
Should be fun.
