...are the same person!
Well no, I made that bit up. Nuns - no sense of humour.
Lock and Load went mad and lashed out the money from the collection plate on Chris Soth's mini-movie method, the reading of which did not make me cry, my head hurt or caused me to shoplift the communion wine. We have Sister Mary Carlsberg for that.
I'm a little suspicious of Gurus who claim that their method is the only one. I suspect that, in keeping with us ordinary mortals, everyone has their own way of writing a script based on a hundred random approaches, a mish-mash of theories, ideas, courses, discussion, sheer bloody-mindedness and so forth.
Chris Soth divides the structure of a film into eight mini-movies which renders them less scary. His 'book' comes in pdf format (away with tedious page turning!) and just as an experiment, I shall write a script the structure of which will be based on his ideas which I shall post about from time-to-time for your edification and amusement.
Thank you to Lucy for her original post on Soth's method. Click on his name for further details on the right.
In other news, Amazon sent a message this morning. In the subject header were the cryptic words 'We have received Satan...' I assured the Good Sisters that any recreation of Ken Russell's 'The Devils' was unnecessary. It was merely an acknowledgement of my returning the DVD Satan (starring Vincent Cassel). Not good if you're squeamish about eyes.
So, all you would-be gurus out there. If you had one piece of advice to give an adoring acolyte, what would it be?
