Writers Wanted! MovieBytes is looking for articles. Call for Submissions
Damn, that's awesome, congrats!
I don't really know where to start.
I studied Communications at the university, and that's where i learned about how to write a screenplay. I consider myself a good one, and i have many ideas popping in my head. And i really enjoy doing them.
My problem is... in my country, there's no filmmaking industry. So, i don't really know where to start. I've considered sending some of works to contests, but to be honest, i am pretty blind and i don't know what should i do...
And sorry for my english. I know, i need some English classes!
Sounds pretty hard to let the baby walk alone, right?
Anyway, that's awesome. Ill keep my fingers crossed for you!
**crosses them** :D
Thanks for your advice, guys. And for the software!
I understand English, i can write it a little, but, of course, i think that if i want to be a screenwriter, my English level must be superior than the average native speaker. And yes, i want to take the classes, i really need that.
Yes, Spanish is my first language. :) Still, it's very complicated when i try to create stuff in english. I have to limitate myself a lot cause i don't know how to say certain things.
Wish there was the perfect translator!
I studied filmmaking at the university.... (even though i have to admit i haven't taken editing courses)...
Seems like there are a lot of weird rules in these contests.....
What " first look" or "exclusive representation" means?
All this seems very complicated.
A similar thing happened to me at the University. I wrote this short story, and my teacher asked me if i had watched Kurosawa's "Rashomon". I didn't had, but my story was kind of similar.
So i thought, "damn, i could have won an Oscar if i had written this story 50 years ago!" ;D
I think there are many stories with similar plots. You have to find your own way to put something different on yours.
Since everybody hates Tom it would be a flop.
It was a joke. I wasn't generalizing.
Holy moly. I fell for it too. I mean, they liked the idea, i can't remember if i signed anything, since i think you had to print the whole thing and send it signed, which i didn't....
Do you do that often, or you rather write a new one for a new competition?
Just wondering, i'm new. And hi all.
Has anyone paid for it here? Or any other proofreading service?
I watched it a while ago and liked it way more than most of 200 mill$. Hollywood productions.
Between Final Draft, or CELTX, Scripped, etc?
I'm a newbie on this and i've partecipated in two contest so far, using CELTX both times.
But every time i read about big competitions, i read about people using Final Draft .... so.... what's the difference?
And btw, Happy New Year 2010 :D
