that I have actually written screenplays before. At least, I have produced objects of my own creative invention that were in acceptable screenplay format and observed general screenplay dramatic requirements (as I was taught them). These things just…no one would have wanted to watch them. At least, not in the form they were in, which is to say, yeah. There was an idea there, but. Yet I want to try again. 2 years ago
I’ve always thought it would be fun to write a screenplay. This wasn’t accompanied by the same urgency or drive as other stuff I’ve written. When I created this goal, I had decided to try writing a screenplay based on a very nerdy favorite TV series that A. and I both love partly for its subject matter but primarily for the characters & relationships that fit so well around the subject & premise of the show.
I thought I’d spent so much time talking about the show with him that I’d gotten to know the characters so well that I might as well try writing a screenplay for them, myself!
But honestly I really am daunted by the real-world understanding of how screenplays are made (it’s a lot like sausage, or so I hear) and the miniscule chance that anyone never previously involved with either Hollywood or this particularly TV series could contribute in any way to such a thing.
Oh, drat. I know this might not make sense but I’ve just argued myself back into thinking I should do this. LOL That’s how my mind works. I was going to change the goal to simply, “Write a play, then a screenplay.”
One thing is sure, it would be a great feeling to finally create a dramatic draft that I am at least as happy with as I am with any of my so-so poem drafts.
I think it probably is a problem with scale. I am intimidated by the idea of working with a full orchestra. I think I can probably do it, though.
On the other other hand…these characters and story are in a real sense owned by other people. Hence the “rights issues” part of the goal. Maybe that has also been stopping me. Is there really a real reason to play around with someone else’s creation instead of just jumping off into the great unknown? Maybe the real question is, Is what I have to say begging to be said in this format?2 years ago
