Tonight the first five pages of our screenplays were due.
Guess what I did all night last night.
Partially because I didn't have much time to do it other than last night.
Partially because I hate sports and wanted some Super Bowl counter-programming.
I ended up changing the opening. Same character, similar scenario, but I think the move made it more dynamic. I'm personally not interested in movies that start with radio interviews. However, I do tend to enjoy films that start with stripteases.
I'm a perv. I know. I've been corrupted by the best of them.
Managed to squeeze out seven pages. And realized tonight that I really need to upgrade to Final Draft when my tax return kicks in...if I have anything leftover after fixing my car and getting new glasses (praying for a 2-for-1 special). Celtx is great and free, but I think paying to fix things like page breaks will greatly help. Plus all the school computers use it, too.
Okay. Off to rest. Acting and Short Script tomorrow.
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
