Jeff, I was actually telling the guy not to discredit your opinion cos you might come off rude.  I also never said you didn't know what you were doing, just that you are pretty set on doing it this way, and most are.  It's their style.  I simply told him to write his way, find something that works within the rules established and build on it.  

Nothing wrong with that.  I was simply giving out an alternative route for him to take.  I also didn't want him to leave the site on the account he's new and the site needs new members to refresh itself every once in awhile.

Lighten up people...

I'm awaiting the RAYW onslaught! Not experienced one of these before. i just hope he manages to read mine as the more feedback the better as far as I'm concerned.

I don't know how others feel but the OWC does create interesting emotions as you see reviews of your script posted. Each time I want to answer the questions raised, explain what they missed or what I should have included, but can't. I try to distance myself away from what I have written but inevitably there is emotional attachment. Ok, you can tell I'm new!

I appreciate the reveal is everyone's chance but that means waiting!! Shucks. (I appreciate others may PM reviewers direct but as a newbie I'm trying to play it straight).

Cheers.

Jeff,

If Phil kill-filed you, which I expect means he hid your replies from his view, then he cannot see your multi-paragraph admonition. Which means you've now taken to talking to yourself on a message board...

Okay, I'm curious - all those who have kill-filed me, raise your hands!

There are 38 scripts to discuss and some of you cannot stop talking about yourselves -- or others?

That is just weird.  C'mon, guys.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Quoted from leitskev

I just read a script last night that, though others didn't seem to think so, I thought was pretty darn good. Sometimes I think if the first couple of reviews are negative, people are likely to follow suit. I was pleasantly surprised how decent it was.


One of my pet peeves is when someone says "I agree with xxx about xxx".  In my reviews I seldom if ever bring up another person's review because I want my words and thoughts to be my own.  Liking something is completely subjective anyway, but I agree with you about following suit.

Ray is a brilliant mind. There are many of those kicking around this site actually and it's really an amazing thing to behold. A person has to be careful and not blink sometimes, or you might miss something.

Poor ol' Ray's got too d@mn many irons in the fire...

Okey-doke, here's what I got done here, so far:

>> SPREADSHEET <<        and       >> BREAKDOWNS & COMMENTS <<


Neither sheet is cleaned up at all, they're essentially roughs.

Tonight and in the morning I can post these comments to each thread, but I don't have time right now.

Sorry!
Sorry!
Sorry!

My weekend and beginning of the week are buggered, It'll be a [expletive] miracle if I can get to the rest of the rated Rs and un-declared ratings before Tuesday.




And thank you guys for the kind words.
I'm honestly just trying to earn my keep around here.


Oh, sh!t! There's the Devil right NOW!  Bye-bye! H&K! See ya later!

Jeez, Ray. I'm having trouble just reading an reviewing all the scripts, and you have everything but casting calls and productions schedules worked out!  Whatever you drink in the morning, send me the recipe please.

Don't share it with Janet. Then she'll start writing 2 features a week!

I have already started to re-write my script. The solutions stared me in the face, and I should have done it to begin with. It's actually a little better now, at least it is to my satisfaction.

Ray's breakdown will have little effect, sad to say.

Anthony, I don't feel like I'm talking to myself, but if I am, so be it.

If someone's going to slander me, or call me out on something, you better beleive I'm going to respond and stick up for myself.

If someone, like Phil or janet, ro whoever decide they don't want to see my posts, that's their perogative.  I however, enjoy reading everyone's thoughts and feelings, wheter or not they are in line with my thoughts and feelings.

I know that I provide lots of support to SS and our current and new members alike.  I know that my words, advice, and feedback has helped many writers of many different levels improve tehir writing expertise as well as their individual scripts.

You can always lead a horse to water, but sometimes it's difficult to make him jump over the fence...oh wait...is that how the saying goes?  

IMO, it's not the words that matter, it's the intent, and my intent is always to help, enlighten, teach, and support anyone who is seaking out advice and help with their screenwriting.

It always amazes me how many writers hate hearing about mistakes they've made.  I just don't get it.  When I make a mistake, I thank whoever points it out, and am sincerely grateful, as I'm a perfectionist and want my work to be as close to error free as humanly possible.


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

I looked at the breakdowns Ray. First I'm amazed that you took the time to do this. I do have a comment though in regard to especially the audio FX. They are all pretty easy to come by. Either as free stock audio or rerecord them yourself. I just don't think a writer should worry about those when writing except for specific music of course. Neither would they worry about the visual FX. An amazing amount of things can be done on the computer.  Neither would I worry too much about anything else that might up the cost or the rating of a film either. Writers should concentrate on the story IMO. If a producer loves the story, they are usually creative enough to improvise with some changes. I personally would love to do Bert's pirate short in San Augustine. There would have to be changes made, but I would love to do that one.  

One thing I LOVE with working with these young students am working with is that nothing seems impossible to them.
