Re: Writers Central

Whoo... It's been one crazy CRAZY last few weeks... Still waiting on the screenplay bit, but at least my producer friend has posted his plans to bring "Hour of Darkness" to life with an actual budget figure!!!! Kind of nice really. In other news, I got an REALLY exciting e-mail a week ago from a pa...

Re: Writers Central

Congratulations Alphanubilus! That is quite a feat! I hope you will keep us informed of your progress. Writing a script is very different from writing a book -- learned that in Nanowrimo. The do script writing in April, and their hints on screenplays confused the heck out of me. However, I am very ...

Re: Writers Central

Wow, alpha - congrats. Is being picked-up for production the equivalent of getting published in the screenwriting world? Or does the film actually have to get made to count? I always wonder these things as it seems studios have many, many projects in development at any given time. Getting picked up...

Re: Writers Central

Whoa... it's been a long time since I've posted something. I've been busy as well. Due to the normal turbulence of the holidays, I've hadn't much writing time... (car accident included...I'm fine though... car isn't... I had to get a new car... but everything turned out super awesome and NO... my n...

Re: Are the aliens really "wrong"?

In many ways the "Souls" of Host remind me of Carl Marx's Communist Manifesto. The Souls create a utopian society, that is "beneficial" for everyone (for them really), but in the end human freedom is sacrificed. Like the communists they subplant religion for their own ideologies, they limit the flo...

Re: Writers Central

Wow that is really sad. It's too bad that people can't respect intellectual properties. This is why I never post anything online as far as stories go. The internet is a really awesome way to get feedback and such, but at the same time, it has its issues. In truth, I think FanFiction.net needs to do...

Re: Changed/Additional Scenes

Perhaps I gave the wrong impression by referring to The Godfather, but I did not mean to suggest a 3-4 hour running length for the Twilight films. I am thinking more in terms of running times about 15-20 minutes longer than they've actually run. That would still be shorter than, for example, most o...

Re: Changed/Additional Scenes

Whoa...whoa... whoa... moving length? Only the most crazed fan would have sat through a 3 to 4 hour Edward swoon. There just isn't enough content to justify making any of the movies that long. The Godfather is in an entirly different catagory. The novels were epic along with the scriptwriting. SM's...

Re: Changed/Additional Scenes

Gotcha... I hadn't read that interview... I was going by what MR had stated during one of her own interviews... but even still, I don't know of any book where they didn't have to make changes from novel to movie adaptations. I think we all have to realize that movies have a life and world of their ...

Re: Changed/Additional Scenes

Firstly and foremostly, there is a HUGE difference between writing a novel and writing a movie. Everyone loves to beat Melissa down, but the reality is, EVERYTHING she has altered or changed was approved upon by Stephenie as well as Summit. A novel, by default, makes a bad movie, and it isn't desig...
