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.
