Interestingly, sometimes people see films in a radically different way. Just yesterday, I got a completely different perception of Dan Brown's latest film adaptation to those of the two friends I watched it with (fact which incidentally led to quite an enjoyable debate).
It's not surprising that the feedback I'm receiving from the people that are kindly reading the shortfilm I'm working on (thanks for that!) is so varied too:
- "I don't know what you want to say".
- "The characters' motivations are weak".
- "What script? Mnn, probably went to my spam folder" (where it belongs, he seemed to say, silently).
- "Have you ever heard about script conventions?".
- "Have you ever heard about grammar?".
Not all have been as positive, though:
- "You should be in a mental hospital".
In short, a very useful eyes-opening feedback that I will be using to get to a third-draft (and hopefully last) stage.
In the mean time, I keep struggling to finalise the DVD of "It did happen" ("Eso que pasó"), which seems to be encountering all the possible difficulties in the history of having difficulties when making DVDs.
He just spent several hours wrestling violently
with the DVD of the picture, before immobilising it
with the popular Vulcan finger pinch.
I have also been busy with drafting the storyline for the online comic book I mentioned here. In principle, the whole thing will have no dialogues, which is quite challenging. As I understand that this affects every single scene and try to find my way around explaining things in a different way, my heart -unreasonable as ever- hopes the results will eventually be good!
Thanks for reading.
