This sounds very interesting, but I'd love to read a pilot. I hope it's out soon, but I'm also wondering why it took so long to get to this point of your pilot. I only say that because it could prove a problem if writing this takes a long time between each episode. Going by possibility, it's likely you got stuck but than re-inspired. Seems promising.
I only just read the first episode and definitely will when it's not so late, but I like where it's going. You've already come out with several more since then, but I thought I'd comment on the one I read. At first, I was a little unsure about these webisodes considering how short they'd have to be, but I realized that it's not all about length. It makes sense to have a small series like this when you're working on other shows also, and I really appreciate the effort put in to a mere 10 pages. I've always loved vampires, and thank god you don't appear to be writing him in a Twilight way. That makes me more happy than you know!
I found myself wondering what the hobbies of the other writers on this site are. We all have a common interest in script writing, but it makes me want to know what else you do. It's likely that a lot of you have creative outlets considering this one, like myself. Outside of script writing and novel writing, I also sing, dance and act. I'm very into psychology and the way the human mind works also. How about you guys?
1. Least Favorite TV Shows: Doctor Who. Feel like it's overrated and dull. Also Grey's Anatomy is just ridiculous. Probably Teen Wolf, too. 2. Least Favorite Movies: Anything to do with Twilight. 3. Least Favorite Games: Call of Duty, Halo. 4. Least Favorite Actor: I'll get back to you. 5. Least Favorite Actress: Lea Michele seems very narcissistic. Also, Shannen Doherty. 6. Least Favorite Book: Didn't enjoy Harry Potter. Call me crazy. 7. Least Favorite Character Aspect: Down to Earth popular girls with douchey boyfriends. Come on.
I've wanted to be a writer since my sister has. She was about nine when she really got into it, constantly writing small novels. Nothing too major, considering how young she was, but it was amazing how creative some of her storylines were at such a young age. Being around her creativity molded my personality dramatically, and eventually I just started writing. At first the things I wrote were small, but I got into full length novels and when I wrote my first script I felt like I belonged there. That's when I knew directing and script writing was something I wanted to pursue.
I find Florence + the Machine to be particularly inspiring. Especially anything by the Cinematic Orchestra, Coldplay, The Fray, and the occasional OneRepublic song. It mostly depends on what kind of scene I'm writing, and I'll listen to song that have to do with the intensity of that moment. Makes for good writing.
I used to love possession/entity type movies, but that seems to be all there is now and I can't find myself getting into them like I used to. Everything seems like it's a scam now. The advertisements will be scary and interesting, but when you get to the theater it's just another rip-off. That's one of the many reasons I love script writing and hope to be a real director soon. There is so much more that can be explored through horror movies that really isn't. Psychologically, they can go pretty much anywhere.
One thing that has always bothered me about True Blood is the lengthy span of time that goes by until a new season comes out. Every Summer, there is a premiere, but that to me is ridiculous. It takes only a few months for viewers to lose interest, and a whole year can make people forget everything that took place in the past season. Great show, wonderful creativity. I have to say I don't like where it's headed, though.
I enjoyed the first few seasons of this show, but I feel like it got a bit slow after a while and I couldn't enjoy it anymore. Everything felt like it was moving in slow motion for me, and it honestly felt like a repeat of Twilight (just slightly darker *which is a GOOD thing*)
Only have had time to read the first episode (the two-parter), but I was extremely impressed. I saw the pitch for this show when it was first put up and was really intrigued at the sound of it. By the script, every detail can be imagined which makes it feel much more realistic and I can easily say it feels like it could be a real show on air. Having only read these two episodes, there's a lot I don't know but I like the dynamic between the three siblings. It's good to start off with a rift between the two girls because that's completely natural to real life and adds a sense of drama. The fact that their brother is the referee is even better, and I can see how that would cause future problems for him because of his position as being the one to stop the fighting in the family. I wonder if he has to repress his emotions to be this mature figure for his immature sisters.
After you write your script using your scriptwriting software, you need to save it as a PDF, and then after that, you go to edit your Weebly page, then go to multimedia, and upload your PDF! Hopefully that helps!
I just started the pilot for a new series I'll soon be pitching, and I see every (or almost every) show on this website uses Weebly. I already created my weebly account, but I'm wondering how you get to the script writing section, or how you use a PDF on their site? Really confused here.
