Whew! Last night was the critique/analysis from the whole class, of the second half of my screenplay, and I did good! Huge improvement on the format and style, good scenes, dialogue, and pacing, and the only things to fix are some story points.
The whole exercise, for me, of turning a novel into a screenplay, was to help me storyboard, and rewrite it. I don’t ever plan to write another screenplay! I’m a book person, though I love analyzing favorite movies. And each of the story points I missed in the screenplay, are already in the novel, but now when I go to rewrite it, I know I’ll hear my teacher stating: “We need to see it.”
I’ll miss this class. These two quarters of focusing on visual storytelling was wonderful, and the classes were awesome, as we’d go off on tangets about other stories and movies, we all laughed lots and no one was ever in a rush to leave when it was done.
I’m still deciding what to take for next quarter.
