Please speak clearly after the heavenly choir...
just a quick update as the rain lashes down upon the windows of the Convent Of Eternal Armament.
The Metlab funding for the script development of Just Desserts has been pulled. Oh well, sign of the times I guess but it does free me up to concentrate on whipping the Red Planet entry into shape.
Just signed a contract with my lovely director/animator Jason. He's moving to Australia this week but thanks to the power of the internet our collaboration remains undimmed by distance.
Lagging well behind with the NaNoWriMo but enjoying the luxury of words. This just in from 51 screenwriting tips:
"Write your script in terse screenplay style.
Condense your narrative into short, strong sentences.
If a novel is a stew, a screenplay is a reduced broth.
Keep dialogue pointed and sharp."
Elizabeth A. Stevens
From her article "No Contest! (Ten Faux
Pas of Screenwriting Contestants)"
I'm not arguing with that. Happy cooking everyone.
