Capitalization of sounds and props.   (reply) Posted by: eldave1
Date Posted: Today, 7:46pm
It's always a bit of this and a bit of that.

Format has nothing to do with Story, Character, Tone, et al.  But it does matter to SCRIPT writing.

Stories can be told in a variety of ways - one of them being screenplays. There are certain standards one should learn and apply if they want to write stories in the screenplay format.

We're writing scripts here - so some of the rules do matter.  Sure, violate the rules when you think it helps with story, tone, character - but don't be ignorant of them either.

IMO, no script will ever be sold because it was formatted 100% correctly. No Producer is going to say, you know - that story kind of sucked - but the formatting, good God it was great - we go...

Quoted from MaxRuddock
... just a hell of a lot of pointing out stuff like typos, which is something the writer is likely to correct themselves when they get back to the re-write with fresh eyes anyways.


Surprisingly, MOST writers, even good ones, don't know about many rights and wrongs when it comes to writing.  You'd be shocked, I think.

You see the same mistakes over and over again, and these issues are not being picked up by the writer or the peeps giving feedback.

Top Ten Television Shows 2018   (reply) Posted by: Penoyer79
Date Posted: Today, 3:37pm

Quoted from James McClung

Worst was the final season of House of Cards. What a spectacular train wreck that was. I'm tempted to watch it again, as it was admittedly entertaining in all its clumsiness. Naturally, there were considerable extenuating circumstances to say the least, but I do think Netflix was foolish to continue the show, especially since S5 could've ended with what would've amounted to a reasonably solid series arc IMO. Similar thing happened with Girls S6, another easily avoided disaster.


HOC final season was a missed opportunity. There were so many different directions they could have gone with it if they had just taken the time to regroup and rethink it all. Instead they panicked and rushed it out while behind the 8 b...

Quoted from hawkeye
I would just humbly ask that the powers that be make this a "normal" OWC -- i.e., one week to enter, one week to review, then results.  Maybe shorter number of pages to make it easier for us to review as many as possible.

Just my two cents.
Gary


The "save the date" was for a three-week period, so sounds like this will be fairly close.

Capitalization of sounds and props.   (reply) Posted by: FrankM
Date Posted: Today, 1:01pm
I think of the strict formatting of spec scripts as akin to how inexperienced job applicants are expected to show up in a suit and handle a bunch of greeting and follow-up rituals even if those things have absolutely nothing to do with performing the job. It demonstrates seriousness and gives the interviewer a reasonably even baseline for evaluating.

Well yeah I think we can take it as a given that if it's written like something a child would write, it won't get far. But a few typos, even a handful in a 100 odd page script, isn't gonna put someone off. Same goes for formatting preferences.

I'm not saying it's not important, I just don't think we need to overly focus on the spokes when it's the wheel that's important. And that is the problem with so much of the feedback I've seen on here. Very little constructive feedback on character(s), their arcs, tone, theme etc etc... just a hell of a lot of pointing out stuff like typos, which is something the writer is likely to correct themselves when they get back to the re-write with fresh eyes anyways.

Top Ten Television Shows 2018   (reply) Posted by: eldave1
Date Posted: Today, 11:37am

Quoted from James McClung
Atlanta was my favorite by far. I would go so far as to say it surpassed all shows in 2017 as well. One of the best seasons of anything ever. Admittedly, I didn't watch as many shows as I would've liked in 2018, but obviously I'm highly passionate about this particular project.

I also enjoyed Better Call Saul, Bojack Horseman, Narcos: Mexico, and Ozark. There were certainly others I enjoyed. These are simply the ones that come to mind at present.

Worst was the final season of House of Cards. What a spectacular train wreck that was. I'm tempted to watch it again, as it was admittedly entertaining in all its clumsiness. Naturally, there were considerable extenuating circumstances to say the least, but I do think Net

Quoted from MaxRuddock
I think Simply Scripts is great. It's just a shame that so much of what's on here (especially regarding reviews) is about really trivial things like typos or formatting choices.

If the story is compelling nobody in their right mind would be like, "Great story but fuck it, I'm disgusted by all those upper caps... Next!"


Very, VERY few scripts have "compelling" or unique stories, and if there does happen to be one and it's written like a child wrote it, it will not be read.

Writing and formatting are super important when it comes to Spec scripts.

Those "Pro" scripts you're reading are so far removed from being Spec scripts.
