Implying Silence Posted by: Ares
Date Posted: 25 minutes ago
So... I am writing a short.

In said short, I try to write a Flashback, witch I envision to be either silent or having only faint sounds, except for the really important parts.

For example, I have a scene where three people talk, but we do not hear what they say. It is important for Lyricism purposes, because I want the reader/viewer to imagine what they are talking about and identify with them.

So far I have approached it by writing everything in action, without capitalizing sounds that I don't want to be audible.

For example: "Jim, John and Jack talk excitedly as they drink their drinks".

Should I add that "We do not hear what they say"?
Maybe a note that the whole thing is silen...

Well it's 2:30 am here and I'm still up. And it feels like I'm on crack by the way.
Hour and a half to go, but I just realised it doesn't matter as My head stopped working an hour ago.


I love your Kitty Cat, Khamanna. Looks like one of mine.   Where in the world are you, right now?

And has this challenge started yet?

This was a pretty straight forward, fast-paced movie that didn't stop.

Not my cup of tea, but I can see why some people would like it.

Try not to direct the scenes too much. Nothing too fancy. Directing is a different job. Our job is to tell a story as visually as we can. It's a learning curve.

Quoted from BThomas

For example. In one scene my lead, Detective Etheridge, is seen walking into a building and we hear knocking as he's crossing the street before it cuts to him standing outside of the suspect's door. In my script, I wrote it as:

"We hear loud knocking as we follow Etheridge into KIMBERLY'S BUILDING--"


You're directing the way the scene should be shot. For one thing, reading 'knocking' I have no idea what type of knocking I'm meant to be hearing. Why does he even need to walk into the building? Just have him knock the door.

"Etheridge bangs on the door."


Quoted Text
For seeing something:

"Etheridge finishes scribbling, stands up, and grabs his jacket.

Hey Dustin, thanks for the feedback.

Just out of curiosity since I'm new to screenwriting, what is the proper way to indicate certain sounds or points of interest we should be seeing or hearing?

For example. In one scene my lead, Detective Etheridge, is seen walking into a building and we hear knocking as he's crossing the street before it cuts to him standing outside of the suspect's door. In my script, I wrote it as:

"We hear loud knocking as we follow Etheridge into KIMBERLY'S BUILDING--"

For seeing something:

"Etheridge finishes scribbling, stands up, and grabs his jacket.

On Etheridge’s notepad, we see ‘MAX BENSON - 145 Bret Harte Ave’."

I'll still buy it when I get some time, it's only like buying you a cheap drink in a pub. I'll probably have to do it on my phone. I am a little disappointed though.

Thanks khamanna,

Glad you're enjoying it so far! Love to hear your opinion when you're done. You gave great notes on the found footage horror script I wrote!

The world that is in the feature script is a quite different than the one in this pilot. The feature begins with the scene between IQ and Champion that the pilot ends with. So the feature deals with the aftermath of that scene and the problems it causes in this "world".

Will definitely give Johnny Come Lately a read tonight! Thanks for the heads up!

Hey, Cacutshaw,

I started reading this and it reminds me of a short here on the site:
http://www.simplyscripts.net/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1461507445/

Maybe it'll somehow help you with your question about using the world for the series (or characters within the world)

I'm on p30 and enjoying it so far.

Quoted from khamanna
Woah, so I won't be seeing the challenge today cuz I'm here in Azerbaijan and it's 10:30 pm right now and the challenge will be announced at 7 pm which means in 5 and a half hours. So, I'll miss half a day there and then the day of submission as I'm full 9 hours ahead of you and will be sleeping, so will have to submit early for this.
Which means I'm left with what - a day and a half, two days tops. Not sure it'll be enough for me.


Hmm, after careful consideration I think the most logical solution would be to get addicted to crack so you stay up for three nights straight and have plenty of time to write.
