View Full Version : Triangle of Fiery Light Script...

It's quite a hefty project to convert into a script. Wanted to know your POVs on it. Whoever converts that section into a script, I was thinking it shldnt be the person who wrote it, for example?
what y'all think?

actually, I don't really want to try to convert it into a script... at least not right now. Maybe in a little bit. I would rather write a "sequel" to it than a conversion.

hmmm... that is a point....
I hadnt considered that.... a sequel.......

From a comic standpoint, having it in script form would help artists lay it out. Rather than having it interpreted into panel format, where it might lose something, this will transfer it into script format.
There is a very good likelyhood that a finished script could be sent over to the Projects forum and rendered sequentially, making it a cross over colaboration between forums.
Plus it's good a good skill set learning to script out a novel, I'm sure screen writers know about this.

good points, too, Xadrian.
well, will wait to see what the others say. Shld be interesting hehehehehhee... I started editing my manuscript last night after a hiatus and I think doing all these exercises/scripts/critting has really helped me see things or write things more crisply. Well, thats what I think LOL one at a time.

so are we going to draw this to? if so i think 6-12 pages per one of our pages would be more than enough to get the story told clearly in pictures with just the right amount of pacing. figure 6 pages per one of ours comes out to 72 pages which bolis down to 3 and a half comics... so figur 4 comics would be enough , do i make sense? almost like a mini series... maybe 6 issues.

Some of the sections are heavier on description (like mine) while others have a fair amount of action that will take more page space to cover. But what we really need to do is figure an outline based on a 22 page standard comic script and try to fit the story to that format so that we end with a big twist that leads into the next issue. I'd say we need to let the adapter decide what works for each section and how he/she can fit it within the 22 page constraints.

good points you guys. I think you voted for the wrong section, I the 12 page script option in the first one was meant for the ENTIRE story lol
but I know what u guys mean anyway.
Yeah, the descriptive passages can more easily be absorbed in one panel (For example) but the fight scenes are harder.
What do you think of letting someone else write the script for THAT section other than the author? We cld have a list of names up and then vote for who gets what (or I cld assign it, if u want me to be like an editor)? OR we can hv a script contest and we'd vote for the best script?
what y'all think?

One editor should sit down with the whole thing and make the changes needed for it to "flow" as one story, since the changes from author to author seem a little too jarring right now...
Gotta finish the ending! see yer.

good point there Zan...
when we are all done, then we can hv a discussion vote on which idea wld work best..
Cuddly suggested that maybe our sequel can be in script form instead?
that's another idea
09-14-2003, 12:26 AM
to summarise the suggestions thus far..
(a) a full 22-24 page script
(b) forget the script and just think abt the sequel
(c) write the sequel as a script instead
(d) Assign a 6-12 page script for each section
(e) An editor asks the writer to pick out the best points (or most dramatic) of their section bfr it gets converted into a script.
(f) An editor tidies up the story (clearing typos etc) and then assigns writers to begin a script on that section. After which a vote can be taken for the best script.
(g) The original author of that section writes a script for that section.
Have I got the suggestion summarised? Or am I missing something?
lemme know. Once Zan gets started, we need to clean up the full story and I will post it as a webpage.

Well, we could always just nominate a script writer. We've already contributed, maybe someone who didn't contribute as a scripter. It doesn't have to be broken down.
09-14-2003, 08:33 AM
hmmmm... now there's another thought. you;d need more than one script writer no? some folks might get scared off by the thought of converting our masterpieces (hehe) all by themselves.
hmmmm... more pondering..
09-14-2003, 10:06 PM
So... what's the deal?
Should I put our story round out there for offers for scripting?
what's the decision folks?
09-15-2003, 09:35 AM
ok, having 'thunk' and 'thunk' and overtaxed my poor brain cell, this is what I feel is the right decision!
check it out :)
thanks again you guys for your input!!!
