Subplot Transcript January 9, 2011


#Scriptchat TOPIC: Subplots

Tonight, both EURO and USA chats talked subplots.  In typical scriptchat fashion, some agreed, some disagreed… and some were having totally unrelated chats amongst the main topic.  Yes, we even do subplots while chatting subplots.  At USA chat, a director popped in looking for talent to work with.  Lesson learned: you never know what will happen at scriptchat… so don’t miss one!  Enjoy! @jeannevb

EURO moderator: Mina Zaher @DreamsGrafter

8:07 pm            janetvaneeden:            RT @jeannevb tip I found helpful: carry theme into your subplots #scriptchat <--Agree - the subplot must carry main plots themes through too
8:07 pm            AlexisNiki:            I find if you understand the conflicts in your story really well, the subplots evolve organically. #scriptchat
8:07 pm            janetvaneeden:            @DreamsGrafter Ah thanks :) XX #scriptchat
8:07 pm            Jonathan_Peace:            In my new script I'm trying to write a subplot that is the mirror opposite in theme to the main story #scriptchat

8:08 pm            DreamsGrafter:            @yeah_write One way to find the subplot is to look at theme. Re thriller, have you seen Shadow of a Doubt? #scriptchat
8:09 pm            jeannevb:            Dara Marks wrote a great book on theme called Inside Story. Its linked on our blog www.scriptchat.com #scriptchat
8:09 pm            DreamsGrafter:            @Jonathan_Peace So do you add the subplot in after the rough draft? #scriptchat
8:09 pm            PrologueWriting:            #scriptchat so subplots is the topic for today?
8:09 pm            janetvaneeden:            @yeah_write @jeannevb Thank you both! :) The one follows close on the other. :) #Scriptchat
8:09 pm            Robert296hewitt:            @DreamsGrafter #scriptchat thats what I use them for you could use the Robert Bloch use of subplot to throw the audience off like in Psycho.

8:11 pm            Robert296hewitt:            I often struggle with sub plots because they tend to lead to another story that I then want to tell and become their own entity #scriptchat
8:11 pm            filmutopia:            #scriptchat There isn't a one size fits all answer to the issue of subplots. It's dependent on the nature of the story you are telling
8:11 pm            janetvaneeden:            RT @jeannevb: @lady_di11 I'm also doing my @ScreenwritingU homework... does that mean its a subplot to #scriptchat ? haha

8:12 pm            twatterer:            @DreamsGrafter my issue with subplots is the popular consensus they should be included regardless of story needs. #Scriptchat
8:12 pm            AlexisNiki:            RT @filmutopia: #scriptchat There isnt a one size fits all answer to subplots. Its dependent on the nature of the story. #scriptchat
8:12 pm            jeannevb:            heehee :) RT @zacsanford2: Yippy @jeannevb was just pimped on @filmcourage radio. #scriptchat
8:12 pm            Jonathan_Peace:            @DreamsGrafter I can clear more of the fossil in rewrites, and better reveal theme, subplots with each new draft #scriptchat
8:13 pm            zacsanford2:            RT @filmutopia: There isnt a one size fits all answer to the issue of subplots. Its dependent on the story you are telling #scriptchat
8:13 pm            Robert296hewitt:            @DreamsGrafter yeah. The way she steels the money and her personal conflict I think Hitchcock called it a macguffin. #scriptchat
8:14 pm            filmutopia:            #scriptchat Of course, I'm fairly certain that the "there isn't a one size fits all answer" could be my only thought for every topic

8:15 pm            Robert296hewitt:            I think with subplots there is many different views and i think a lot of the time we write them but don't realise it. #scriptchat
8:15 pm            filmutopia:            #scriptchat Although, I do believe that thematically driven scripts will tend to develop more subplots than classic arc scripts
8:16 pm            reebotfilms:            Blake Snyder talks usefully about sub-plots in the always helpful #savethecat #scriptchat
8:16 pm            SaschaIllyvich:            @DreamsGrafter #scriptchat It depends on the story really. If the one I work on calls for it then I go with that for spinoff story
8:17 pm            DreamsGrafter:            @Jonathan_Peace I like tht approach ...u find yr theme organically. Sometimes we don't know why we're writing a story initially. #scriptchat

8:21 pm            twatterer:            @DreamsGrafter my point being that films per se don't *need* subplots, it's just certain stories do. #Scriptchat

8:30 pm            DreamsGrafter:            So excluding the subplot isn't genre dependent - i.e. more likely in action and thriller? It's dependent on story? #scriptchat
8:30 pm            Bang2write:            @DreamsGrafter I use Pitch Black as an example w/ Bang2writers not 'cos it's best film, but cos it is v clear in its transitions #scriptchat

8:31 pm            filmutopia:            #scriptchat would now be a good time to mention the practice of writing short stories for minor characters to create subplots for rewrites?

9:00 pm            LynneRice:            RT @filmutopia: #scriptchat would now be a good time to mention the practice of writing short stories for minor characters to create subplots for rewrites?
9:00 pm            DreamsGrafter:            So the other end of the spectrum. RT @thewritertype: The Hunt for Red October was all subplot. Also Das Boot. #scriptchat
9:00 pm            reebotfilms:            OK:, serious questions: what major subplot types are there other than ROMANCE? #scriptchat
9:01 pm            devt:            @reebotfilms No idea, that's what I'm wondering about! Followed different strands more intensely on different viewings-- #scriptchat

9:01 pm            beingbrad:            I think subplot can be a thematic breathing space to let the audience relax, catch their breath. Palette cleanser b/w courses #scriptchat
9:02 pm            AlexisNiki:            @devt @DreamsGrafter @BWTheFilm Subplots play a role even in web series. #scriptchat

9:02 pm            thewritertype:            @filmutopia Thanks. As well as Magnolia some Altman films seem to be all sub and no main - but maybe he's just clever #scriptchat

9:02 pm            DreamsGrafter:            I guess the thing about subplots is that it depends on the story you want to tell. #scriptchat

9:04 pm            Bang2write:            @jamiewolpert The script shld have subtext, themes etc. Idea of subplot should be largely meaningless outside of soap and sitcom #scriptchat

9:05 pm            Bang2write:            @jamiewolpert I totally agree - often what scribes call "subplot" in features are often character motivations, themes or subtext #scriptchat

1:07 am            IngridElkner:            Subplots should usually work to show the theme enacted a different way, with different results to main plot #scriptchat

1:19 am            cinemascribe:            Hi #scriptchat peeps!
1:19 am            AndiWritesAgain:            @covermyscript The subplot, in depth, is how Judy & I are relating to each other to further the theme. No? #scriptchat
1:19 am            GCGeek:            @covermyscript But it should add to the story, maybe them, maybe not, but not just fill time with supporting characters. #scriptchat
1:19 am            beingbrad:            So, how important is subplot? Is subplot always intentional and woven throughout? #scriptchat

1:24 am            jeannevb:            I have been guilty of writing subplots better than main plot bc in draft 1, I tend to protect the protagonist too much #scriptchat

1:37 am            beingbrad:            Instead of thinking about how to add subplot, think about how to give your tertiary characters a goal they achieve. #scriptchat

1:41 am            TheStorysmith:            If you want to write a story, then tell one. aloud. To strangers without being paid. If they listen, remember what you did. #scriptchat
1:41 am            covermyscript:            the other thing is people often confuse theme with genre or mood. just write a good story, w/ real chars. then their subplots... #scriptchat
1:41 am            jeannevb:            @JBMovies some is better than none :) #filmcourage #scriptchat
1:41 am            zacsanford2:            I've also seen scripts where it seems the subplot starts to overshadow the main story or where it is the more interesting story. #scriptchat
1:41 am            TAOXproductions:            @itsKysis I think if you spend ALOT of time organizing story elements 1st, subplots are easier to "control";) #scriptchat

1:42 am            beingbrad:            what if you're writing a short? Sub-plots still? #scriptchat
1:42 am            IngridElkner:            For me, once characters & world are established, knowing theme keeps me on track & gives relevant plot, subplots and resolutions #scriptchat

1:43 am            zacsanford2:            @beingbrad shorts and webseries can still have subplots put in there. #scriptchat
1:43 am            covermyscript:            but it stood on its own as its own story. successful subplot. not about theme. about story. and good story at that. #scriptchat
1:43 am            TheStorysmith:            Hitchcock's scripts were unintelligible by the time he made the movies. Scripts are instruction books for storytelling #scriptchat
