Script Frenzy Update 5

It's late Wednesday night (early Thursday morning) so it must be time for an update.

I'm happy to say that some good writing took place this Tuesday. We did a little re-writing on the script to resolve some story problems which caused us to have a smaller page count. After this we actually added to the screenplay. Most of it was dialogue, which is good because this is going to be a dialogue heavy movie. The result is an overall gain of 1 page, bringing the total to 12 pages of written script.

Not enough good news you say? Something else we discussed this week was our title sequence. Now, we have what I think is a pretty good scene to put the titles over, but there is something that has always bothered me about it. I like the idea behind it, and I think it is fairly original, but I don't think it sets the right tone for the movie. Jessie and I had a talk about it, and I think we have something that will work even better. I am very excited to write the dialogue for this scene; I think it will be very funny.

And there's more to be excited about. Jessie and I (mostly Jessie) came up with an interesting and clever way to do some marketing for our movie. If done right, it will be incredibly subtle and be drawn out over a couple years. I don't want to say exactly what it is right now, but we will be revealing it to our loyal followers soon.

It's been quite awhile since I've had this much to talk about. I'm all tired from writing this much. Well, that and the lateness of the hour.

Goodnight all!
