      I'm in, though I don't know if I'm going to make 50,000 words or not. My goal is to make serious progress on my project during this month. We'll see where I end up at month's end.

      My first job was typing the scripts for General Hospital into the TelePrompTer it was fun the show was so stupid but I was a very fast typist. This was before they had everything on a computer system we had to use a giant old fashioned typewriter more like a newspaper type-setting system it was enormous and very loud they put us in a small room two of us and we had to do the whole script in two hours. I hated it because the machine was so hard to use it printed the words in GIANT SIZE TYPE so...

      the actors could read the words from wherever they were on the set and the words scrolled up through the prompter at whatever speed the actor was saying them, they had another person part of the camera crew who would be responsible for making sure the dialogue scrolled upward at the right speed.

      I loved season one but we've all got different expectations from genres. I'm aware I may be in the minority on this show :)

      I'm stuck in research mode. As soon as I've finished reading every major religious text, all parts of The Canterbury Tales, Dune and Game of Thrones books, I may be ready to start working on location research.

      Holding down an unpaid development asst internship and a paid script reading job at the same time is not advisable ^_^

      Yeah - I'm hyped too for Exodus. It's really good and I've been on a real Bible kick for the last year. So much terrific religious-osity out there these days...

      Hey Half,

      Went to a presentation of the film with an Australian film group. The film exposed a lot of Australian actors as well as the versatility of the SFX companies that are out there. Half of the budget was paid for with Australian taxes and there were a few other good reasons I can't think of right now.

      To be honest, in IMax 3d, I didn't hate it at all. It was actually really cool in the moment watching with the writer/director who is a great guy.

      Thanks for the perspective, Charlie :) Didn't even know it was Aussie. The trailer oversold for me I think.

  8. Feeling very cynical today. Working for a major was a childhood dream but tbh I can't stand the job :) Time to find something else to do.

      When I was younger, my dad would say stop watching tv and read a book. I told him no. Now I like books > tv. Growing older is weird.

      I print out 90% of what I read. Can go from a warm bath to the Chinese buffet. Hmmm. Love among the TB. A case of paper. My HP laserjet. PRICELESS.

      I find it much easier to read pdfs than final draft and switch between the two during edits

      nope, it's the only way I can edit. Though I do print two pages of script to a page to save paper.

      You must live in the provinces if you have to import what I hear on a daily basis. Wanna swap? I prefer dead calm. I've been known to wrap my skull in swaddling clothes. My head is often mistaken for a baby Jesus.

      Were the characters really that great in the first one either?

    3. Galleria.Pictures

      Comparatively they are better in the original - more developed at least. Actors with more experience helped the original too.

      Agreed, I was really annoyed that the movie is nothing more than pushing an anti-gay-marriage agenda by dinosaurical allegory.

      Totally agree on the importance of outlining, Cyber :)

      This is character research for a manuscript and I want to have that done before the final outline.

      The Google Group (Bulletin) is not in anyway tied to the forums here. Two different beasts with two different items.

      On the Google Group (Bulletin) you can set it so you receive only one email a day or no emails at all. At the top right / my settings / membership and email settings. in there you should be able to set it how you please.

      I'll just say it - Bane is boring.

    4. Writer

      Writer

      Liked it more than I didn't. Thought Bane was fantastic, undermined only by Nolan's treatment of him in the closing moments of the story. And couldn't help shake the feeling the entire time that Nolan's heart wasn't into this 100%. Felt like the cinematic equivalent of an A student hurriedly finishing an assignment the morning-of knowing that he could get a B+ by just slumming it.
