What we're about
INT. MEETING HALL-NIGHT
Aspiring screenwriters meetup.
What are we going to do?
We're going to discuss story ideas, plot lines, character development and the usual problems.
"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.
So what do you want to do?
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.
What's your story?
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.
Are you going teach us?
Heck no. We're going to figure it out TOGETHER. It should be fun.
