7:17 pm             jeannevb:             @DreamsGrafter a bit nervous about starting it. Comedy after such grimness. But hoping nxt wk's conf gives me needed push #scriptchat
7:17 pm             fnafilms:             where's @bang2write? #scriptchat

7:19 pm             momentsoffilm:             @Jonathan_Peace Still slowly slaving away at a sci-fi action. Finished outline, starting writing proper. #scriptchat

7:22 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @jeannevb What conference are you going to? The Linda Seger session helped me for that reason. #scriptchat
7:22 pm             olilewington:             @antonsays I'm just some weirdo who'll probably start stalking you now... #scriptchat
7:22 pm             lupiilu:             @Jonathan_Peace it's a small short isn't it. have you decided on a story yet? #scriptchat

7:23 pm             booksbelow:             @Jonathan_Peace Difficulty has been picking out which slice of a very rich life is self-contained story. #scriptchat
7:23 pm             david_haddon:             I actually started working on a scifi script for an animation I'm making. Though it's difficult some times to pick between ideas #scriptchat
7:23 pm             JLichtenberg:             RT @jeannevb: @momentsoffilm I'm using this intense workshop nxt wk to force me to get it movin ;) #scriptchat
7:24 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @antonsays Brilliant! What I love about #scriptchat script nights is discovering the different readings of a script. #scriptchat
7:24 pm             lupiilu:             @olilewington making's fun, all the energy on set, actors are fun, though attention seekers. lol, Love writing though #scriptchat
7:24 pm             momentsoffilm:             @DreamsGrafter No.. it gets finished when it's finished. My life doesn't have a schedule so I write when I can. #scriptchat
7:24 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @antonsays I guess it reflects what each of us as writers focus on with our writing. #scriptchat
7:25 pm             jeannevb:             @DreamsGrafter Stony Brook Southampton Screenwriters Conf. I'm in a workshop w only 8 screenwriters #gulp #scriptchat
7:25 pm             jeannevb:             @ChadsWrite thanks ;) #scriptchat
7:25 pm             antonsays:             #scriptchat if ppl are interested. i'm also reading LM Sunshine, 500 Days of summer, As good as it gets, The Hangover
7:25 pm             BWtheFilm:             @lupiilu I'm the opposite. I love the solitude of the writing, the prep of pre-production, the editing phase. But the set? Meh. #scriptchat
7:25 pm             LisaFromNYC:             Sorry I'm late. Had to reboot urgh.... #scriptchat
7:25 pm             david_haddon:             @momentsoffilm That's the best way to do it though? It'd feel forced otherwise? #scriptchat
7:25 pm             momentsoffilm:             @jeannevb Yeah, workshops are good for that! #scriptchat
7:25 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @BWtheFilm Pls let us know when it launches in Oct so we can pimp the hell out of it. ;) #scriptchat
7:25 pm             JLichtenberg:             #scriptchat I just had someone ask for a SECOND look at a script he'd lost his copy of. Might be a good thing. Sent rewritten draft
7:26 pm             BWtheFilm:             @DreamsGrafter You bet! #scriptchat
7:26 pm             thewritertype:             No. (just teasing...) RT @Jonathan_Peace: @thewritertype Excellent... any snippets you can tease us with? #scriptchat
7:26 pm             BWtheFilm:             @JLichtenberg Ha, a happy accident perhaps! #scriptchat
7:27 pm             Jonathan_Peace:             @thewritertype LOL.... why am I not surprised. #scriptchat
7:27 pm             LisaFromNYC:             @BWtheFilm I love groundhog day. Will d/l script 2day. Should be a fun read. #scriptchat
7:27 pm             momentsoffilm:             @Jonathan_Peace I hate outlining but it's so much better to sort out structure at that stage than when you've bulk written it! #scriptchat
7:27 pm             JLichtenberg:             #scriptchat "self-contained story" from "Real Life" - sorting life into a story is the same as sorting a story-idea into a novel.
7:27 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @jeannevb Oh yes, sorry, my brain has been everywhere recently. That's SO awesome! Such brilliant timing. :D #scriptchat
7:27 pm             lupiilu:             @olilewington yeah it's brilliant. I do miss it I have to say. But if I had to choose, writing would win hands down. #scriptchat
7:27 pm             BWtheFilm:             @DreamsGrafter That's true. Never thought of it that way. #scriptchat
7:28 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @jeannevb And - it's so cool you've chosen an acting session. That'll be a lot of fun and you'll learn so so much. #scriptchat
7:28 pm             momentsoffilm:             @david_haddon Not necessarilly. I can write to deadlines too but I'm taking life easy and only doing fun things right now! #scriptchat
7:28 pm             lupiilu:             @BWtheFilm I had great fun with the actors, attentions seeking, amateur, happy to take the punishment, filmed one on a >>> #scriptchat
7:28 pm             Jonathan_Peace:             @momentsoffilm I never used to do that (outline) which is probably why nothing got finished. Now its a MUST & scripts get done! #scriptchat
7:28 pm             antonsays:             Outline is very important, focuses your writing from the start. I also try and write a treatment too b4 script #scriptchat
7:29 pm             olilewington:             @lupiilu It's a close call for me. And ask me at the end of the @LLHFilm shoot & I'll prob say writing!! #scriptchat
7:29 pm             david_haddon:             @momentsoffilm I wasn't referring to deadlines. There is a difference though between forcing yourself and working under pressure.#scriptchat
7:29 pm             lupiilu:             @BWtheFilm a steep hill, lots of falling over, lots of out takes, lots of bruises and laughing, loved every minute of it. #scriptchat
7:30 pm             LisaFromNYC:             @antonsays How long is a treatment? #scriptchat
7:30 pm             jeannevb:             @Jonathan_Peace @momentsoffilm I outline 2. Great trick is doing a synopsis AFTER outline & before 1st draft. Finds holes #scriptchat
7:30 pm             olilewington:             Outlining is something I need to improve in my work - I'm too anxious to open Final Draft on my scripts. #scriptchat
7:30 pm             jeannevb:             @DreamsGrafter i'm terrified of acting... just like #screenwriterkaraoke haha #scriptchat
7:30 pm             lupiilu:             @olilewington yeah it's hard going, long hours, no appreciation, it's amazing how much energy you find to do it though. #scriptchat
7:31 pm             jeannevb:             I'm going to clean my office. Yeah, I said it. Don't all fall over. #scriptchat
7:31 pm             rpg3000:             Outline often first place to spot and fix problems before committing to script pages which are more painful to revise or cut. #scriptchat
7:31 pm             olilewington:             Fantastic tip! RT @jeannevb Great trick is doing a synopsis AFTER outline & before 1st draft. Finds holes #scriptchat
7:31 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @momentsoffilm I can't wait 'til it's finished. Am looking forward to seeing it. :) #scriptchat
7:31 pm             antonsays:             @LisaFromNYC I'm aiming for one page equals ten script pages. but its starts with a few paragraphs and builds #scriptchat
7:31 pm             olilewington:             @lupiilu I love the buzz, but it does exhaust you. @LLHFilm is going to be a manic shoot - fun but shattering! #scriptchat
7:31 pm             momentsoffilm:             @DreamsGrafter What event? I never have much of a budget and I get my AD to schedule and then make everyone do it quicker! ha! #scriptchat
7:31 pm             lupiilu:             @Jonathan_Peace I'll give you any help I can on it babe. X #scriptchat
7:31 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @jeannevb @johnrackham said something interesting about acting today. That when you're up there, it's not you. #scriptchat
7:31 pm             LisaFromNYC:             I do: 1) logline 2) beatsheet/outline 3) draft 4) synopsis (3&4 can alternate) #scriptchat
7:31 pm             Jonathan_Peace:             So true RT @rpg3000: Outline to spot and fix problems before committing to script pages which are more painful to revise or cut. #scriptchat
7:32 pm             david_haddon:             I'm strange in I treat writing like sculpting. I build it all up then get rid of what I don't like. #scriptchat
7:32 pm             thewritertype:             #scriptchat @Jonathan_Peace Ok. The project I'm writing is a comedy drama about suicide (to be continued)
7:32 pm             lupiilu:             @jeannevb shoving everything into draws while drinking tequila doesn't count. ;) #scriptchat
7:32 pm             olilewington:             @jeannevb I'm adamant that when I move my office is going to become a haven of clean, tidy productivity. #scriptchat
7:33 pm             BWtheFilm:             @david_haddon I do that too. I also outline. Each at different points in the process. #scriptchat
7:33 pm             JLichtenberg:             RT @antonsays: Outline is very important, focuses your writing from the start. I also try and write a treatment too b4 script #scriptchat
7:33 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @momentsoffilm It was @BAFTA. Part of the Soho Rushes. @johnrackham won a freebie. #scriptchat
7:33 pm             antonsays:             @thewritertype suicide bombers? #scriptchat
7:33 pm             Jonathan_Peace:             @lupiilu Thanks hun. Trying not to go overboard wth it though. its just supposed to be fun. LOL keep me on track with E69 #scriptchat
7:34 pm             david_haddon:             @BWtheFilm Another way I could put it is I write everything I think of. Then decide what is actually bad after it's written. #scriptchat
7:34 pm             BWtheFilm:             I have that fantasy too RT@olilewington @jeannevb When I move my office is going to become a haven of clean, tidy productivity. #scriptchat
7:34 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @momentsoffilm The guy leading the discussion talked a lot about the 1st AD's role and script/schedule/budget as legal docs. #scriptchat
7:34 pm             thewritertype:             #scriptchat @Jonathan_Peace But it's not about people killing themselves, it's about people trying to live together.
7:34 pm             JLichtenberg:             @antonsays #scriptchat being able to outline, write ttment & pitch first is a sign of a professional - being able to work w/o such is also!
7:35 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @david_haddon Hi! On behalf of #scriptchat #treefort ... welcome! :)
7:35 pm             momentsoffilm:             @DreamsGrafter Oh if it's the feature you're talking about it will probably never get made! Too big budget for a nobody like me. #scriptchat
7:35 pm             BWtheFilm:             @david_haddon YES! Can't generate ideas and edit at the same time. It's deadly. #scriptchat
7:35 pm             JLichtenberg:             RT @LisaFromNYC: I do: 1) logline 2) beatsheet/outline 3) draft 4) synopsis (3&4 can alternate) #scriptchat
7:35 pm             david_haddon:             @DreamsGrafter Thanks very much :) #scriptchat
7:36 pm             Jonathan_Peace:             @thewritertype I like it. So many different ways we all kill ourselves in small ways every day. #scriptchat
7:36 pm             olilewington:             Damn. RT @BWtheFilm: I have that fantasy too RT@olilewington @jeannevb my office is going to become a haven of productivity. #scriptchat
7:36 pm             britmic:             RT @DreamsGrafter: @jeannevb @johnrackham said something interesting about acting today. That when you're up there, it's not you. #scriptchat
7:36 pm             deanlines:             Would you ever let someone read an older, longer draft of a scripts after they've already read and liked a shorter, newer draft? #scriptchat
7:36 pm             DreamsGrafter:             @momentsoffilm Oh no, I was talking about the short. But never say never. Hollywood needs new big ideas. #scriptchat

7:51 pm             BWtheFilm:             @rpg3000 If it's your script then it's harder to have distance. Perhaps it needs more than tweaking. #scriptchat
