My Thoughts on…

So this was the last week in my Script Analysis and Criticism class, and you know what? I learned so much from it!

I learned that no matter the length of a script, or who wrote it, if there is no clear Act I: inciting incident, that sets off the key incident, that would then move the story to Β plot point I, then the rest of the Acts would definitely not work.

Oh the ways of screenwriting.

This of course I was able to see through reading Rob Zombies script, House of 1000 Corpses. Frankly I had a very hard time reading this…

But now I am able to detect the inciting incidents, key incidents, plot point I, mid point (around page 60 or 60 minutes into the movie), plot point II, and finally the ending…

Boy… that was a mouthful.

I realize that what I now know will definitely be an advantage for me when it comes to not only reading other writer scripts, but when I write my own as well.

This new knowledge will also help me when I start writing my comic script…

Now For…


Tomorrow I begin my class on Film Screenwriting and Story Boarding…

YUP! I shall be using Toon Boom… sure I know that some of my classmates will see it as a waste of time and you know what, that’s fine…

After all everyone has a right to have their own opinions on the matter…

But I see this with an open mind and also as a way to expand my skills…

Hmm…

I might just be a hungry writer that likes to learn from anything that is giving to me.Β 

Till Next Time
