Hey bloggers. As some of you might remember, I was contemplating the merits of film school. I took a screen writing course as an elective before I finished my undergrad and loved it. My professor liked my short film script and encouraged me to try my hand at crafting a legit screenplay. One of the rules in class was to show, not tell about our characters exploits. Meaning not to rely on phone conversations or other technological interventions that ruin the pacing and overall plot of a film. So I've been sitting around, coming up with ideas for potential scripts and am faced with a one reoccurring problem: technology may make our modern lives more convenient...but it royally fucks with the dramatic tension needed in my storyline!
Case in point: THE INTERNET
death to cell phones in movies also.
