Eddie We're going to discuss story ideas, plot lines, character development and the usual problems.
Mable Like what?
Eddie "Am I saying too much? "Is the scene clear?" "Is this too much dialogue?" "Should I use a series of shots, or a montage?" "Is this scene necessary?" "Is this formatted properly?" You get the idea.
Irene So what do you want to do?
Eddie Create scenes and work through these types of problems. Or work on scenes someone is having with. Perhaps act it out to see how a director and actors might interpret it.
Rudy What's your story?
Eddie When I decided to write a screenplay, I was hesitant to tell anyone what I was doing. I didn't want to sound silly; after all, I really didn't know what the heck I was doing (still don't). It was difficult and I needed help, but I had no one to turn to. I almost quit, but I enjoyed the challenge and stuck with it.
Julio Are you going teach us?
Eddie Heck no. We're going to figure it out TOGETHER. It should be fun.
