So I showed my “partner” the script and she was really impressed. I must admit it felt good to receive praise for it seeing as I worked so hard on it. Anyway she went through and annotated it and added/changed some stuff most of which I agree with. I still haven’t heard from my other friend what she thinks but I think I might ask one more person to read through it and add ideas and whatever before I write up a final draft and get it photocopied for everyone i think that will act in it. I’m glad my partner liked it because i think we would have had a lot of problems if she didn’t. I started storyboarding when I had a free today and when the big rubbish clean ups are on soon i am going to go looking for props. I’ve also written up a rough film schedule. I reckon we’ll start filming in a month or so. when it’s finished i”m going to show it to my drama teacher and see what he thinks because he is one of my favourite teachers and most of my friends that are going to act in it and having him for drama next year so we can show off our stuff. Anyway I am really excited about the way things are going. 5 years ago
This was the sort of thing on my list that I thought I would take forever to get around to doing. I love filming things and editing and all that coz it is so much fun. and I love watching the final product. I though because I want to work in film and tv when I’m older that it would be a good idea to do some experimenting now. I chose a TV show i guess because it’s really hard to do a short film and with a tv show if i really like it the first time i can keep doing episodes even if it takes months between episodes. Anyway i have a friend who just bought a video camera and we decided to make a show together. The show is going to very much be influenced by our own lives and funny things that happen to us, or things we say because we find ourselves hilarious. My goal was to get this finished by next holidays which is 10 weeks away. After lots of preparation and throwing ideas arounds and changing my mind and whatever I have written a first script draft for the first episode. it is about 15 pages. I showed it to my friend to get some outside feedback and she thinks its a bit too cliche but I think since its my first time writing it’s a bit hard to think outside cliche, thats all I know really. Anyway I went back and tried to change the dialogue so it sounded a bit more natural and how my friends and I would talk. The storyline is still very boring and predictable but the side things, dialogue and characters will make it much more interesting as well as sound, setting and camera angles. I sent my revised script copy to my friend again and am waiting to see what she thinks. I’ll then show it to my friend I am making the show with and we might change things together. After that the script should be finished and I’ll have to convince my friends to act in it. Finding places to shoot will be the hardest thing I think along with the fact that I know hardly any boys that will want to act in it. Actually I know about 1 and there is at least 2 main characters that are male. I’m also thinking about buying some form of microphone and a good tripod. I also think my computer probably needs better editing software, i don’t even know what software we do have.
Well that is my progress so far. An almost finished script. It’s a good start i think. 5 years ago
