So, It’s been a while since I’ve been here writing about my adventures around here so this is the fix :)
It’s been a rather complicated few past days, dealing with bureaucracy and permits, fighting my own procrastination and urges not to get out of the bed, but I’ve survived, made couple drafts of the screenplay (finally!!!!)
and I’m gonna share bits and bobs with you :)
so, the biggest obstacle caused itself to be the writer’s block, where I was starring into the screen for bloody days and nothing…..
What proved itself to be really useful was to sit on a rooftop at midnight, with a head-torch, couple whiskeys in my system and another in my hand, with plenty of tobacco storyboard by my hand and using the good old pen and paper :)
(the moon was so amazing, I even managed to take a fairly ok picture of it with a crappy phone camera :)
so I have 2 major drafts of the sotryboard, one is picture/scene one -depicting the vision of how should it look like on the screen- with minimum technical info or description
and then there is the technical script- describin position of actors and equipment, angles and movement.
so, with the storyboard in front of me, I was ready to start scripting, and here are teasing bits of my ungodly in-readable hand write :)
which got molded into a properly written one – I’ve been using celtx software.
unfortunately, since I’m a poor student I will have to abandon using it after my trial runs out, but I have to say I kinda fell in love with it :)
(unfortunately, they don’t pay me to say such things :D)
