I never realized how much work actually went into screenwriting until it came to this class. And yes, screenwriting for film is different than screenwriting for TV. What I've done for a movie is a lot easier as you don't have to worry about differencing from different scenes as often (at least I haven't had to when I was in a film class). In this class it's somewhat annoying because I can't do different cuts of mention where cameras are looking.
It took me a bit to get used to the fact that I didn't have to do that as well as it took me a bit to figure out how to get the script formatted. That's the only thing that's been giving me some sort of trouble, it was the most irritating thing making sure that everything is centered right. And because I did this in a word document as opposed to a certain file to use, it makes it that much more difficult, especially considering some of my pages have blank spaces that I can't fix.
Oh and because I have to keep printing more than one copy of my script, by the end of this J-Term, I'm only going to have about 300 prints left and I have the rest of the school year to use up those prints and most of my classes are English. This especially stinks because I don't have the CD to install my printer onto my computer and can't find a driver online.
On the bright side, I'm really enjoying what I'm writing with for my script so at least that keeps me preoccupied.
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
