I don't know if 9 years and 13K views makes this a hidden gem or an oldie but goldie. What I do know however, is that this is still funny.
@puresick mainly from what I've heard, but also from my own (albeit limited) experience; Lenovo ThinkPads are great Linux (Arch) machines
I think I was a bit naive thinking that if I just get the server up and going the real screenwriting people will then get the activity rolling.
Also the twitter deal didn't really make people fully commit to mastodon I think. A little unfortunate for this server, but maybe twitter ain't so bad after all.
The first one that came to mind: Booksmart. A hilarious (and serious) buddy comedy with the two leading roles being played by women. Check it out!
@dejackson no worries! This is the most exciting action this instance have had, no? :)
Sorry for getting bogged down on tiny details. I'll get back to you on the whole script later this month.
@dejackson @cruzwriter hey! I remember that exchange (sorry for not getting back to you in that script, haven't gotten around to finish it yet). In that particular scene I don't think it works actually, and I think it is because I'm not sure either. Maybe if it was made clearer who Ynga is speaking to and what she is referring to, the "he doesn't [get it]" would work.
I think I agree with you. So what do you think about this scenario, faux pas or reasonable writing?
Jenny is making threats directed to Lisa. Through dialogue Jenny explicitly tell Lisa to do [something] or else...
If we follow that up by writing "Lisa gets it", we are actually not showing emotions through external action but rather explaining what is happening internally in Lisa.
What do you guys think of the actionline "he gets it" in a screenplay? Obviously we can make the argument that one could see when someone comes to realize something, but should the writer then rather describe what we see that make us conclude that "he gets it"?
I'm interested in storytelling in general and screenwriting in particular.
