Full Title: Back-To-Basics Screenwriting With Snappy (Or, Why The Biz Might Not Be For You)
Written because the Deviantart Scripts & Screenplays section makes me want to put my head through a wall. Repeatedly.
Hope this helps you, minions. If you have any more questions, feel free to let me know.
Ironically, I wasn't going to upload a PDF to facilitate viewing, but then I remembered DA's upload system sucks and I didn't want to reformat the dialogue, so, you get a PDF anyway.
For anyone who's actually interested in film school, I highly recommend the Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film & Television program. All my props come from there.
Ps. Please let me know about any typos; I admit I uploaded this hastily and PDFs are annoying to change.
The only difference is you need to be more detailed in how you want things drawn/ more physical description of characters and places. Also, avoid using any figurative language, because if you aren't the one who's drawing the cartoon, the artist is probably going to take the script literally.
Pssssh, yeah, right.
That's all cool! Best of luck to you.
I'm currently just focusing on this script right now, it's hopefully in one of its final drafts so I can get paid eventually. I have a number of other scripts in various states, but no time to go over and edit them.
So many people don't know how to format a script.
I hope they don't stop here. There are tons of other stuff that goes with writing a screenplay that wasn't covered here. Like doing an Outline and getting the beats of the story together and much more. Plus the even more difficult task of getting your scripted read or sold.
Seriously to all the new writers who see this.
Do you research, if you want go to a school, just make sure you learn the craft and learn it right.
Having searched for screenwriting format guides online before, I will say yours is not only the most thorough but also the most entertaining. Thanks!
Thanks very much! Glad you liked it.
Is the program really that good? Iīm kinda nervous because I donīt know what Iīm gonna deal with if I win said scholarship.
Also, the program is really excellent if you apply yourself. They give you all the tools and access to people you need -- if you use them correctly and put in effort, you'll have a blast.
And I see you're from Mexico. I don't know why, but there are always LOADS of people from Mexico at VFS. You'll do just fine.
I hope you end up going! Best of luck.
Seriously, I'm flattered. Thanks so much!
I can consider myself a Socratic person, but with this I feel like moving everything aside and just writing a screenplay
You're very welcome ^^
I say you should go for it!
Thanks very much for the comment!
Thank you very much.
You know why?
This is good.
You have SUCH a strong voice. I can HEAR you talking to me through the internet, telling me to shut the hell up!
You write seriously well! Keep it up!
