I happened to glance down at the bottom of the forum, and saw that it is Kiyoshi's birthday today.

Happy birthday!

Wow, wish I would have noticed this, been busy trying to get ready to start my job and finishing up a script or two so I can hopefully start filming either this summer or sometime next year.

Thanks everyone.

Oooh, good luck with the scripts, man!

Maybe you could post some insight for those of us who want to become screenplay writers?

Yeah, I came back for a bit, I might try to be more active in the future, it's just a wait and see kind of thing.

On the matter of screenplays, if anyone wants to write screenplays it is important to learn the format that you have to write in. Which I find to be the most complicated part, and something I've been putting off for awhile now myself.

For now I've mostly been trying to get the ideas of what I want to be in the script down and fleshing out the characters themselves. Since I'm planning for my first two films to be very indie (with practically no budget at all), I'm not too worried on how the script looks, but I know I got to get things down eventually when I do end up trying to sell my scripts in the future.

The first one I'm working on is more of a let's mess around with this camera and see what happens kind of thing. It's based on myself and one of my close friends, and it's a project we've talked about since early 2000, and since practically everyone who lives around me has heard me or him talk about it, we're doing it first. It'll probably be a really dumb and bad buddy comedy, but it's more for learning than actually trying to put out a good film.

The second, which will have to have a bit more of a budget than the first, was also supposd to be a comedy, but I've decided to make it more of a psychological horror. It's about after a large scale disease outbreak and dealing with the realization that you are practically the last person on earth. I saw that horror movies had continued to be much more of closed in areas with things coming at you, and I decided I wanted to do the opposite.

That's the one I'm really going to put a polish on and end up submitting it to all the film festivals I can.

But yeah, I'll try and give more insight once I'm past my initial "get all the ideas down on paper before I forget them" stage. I will however highly recomend a book titled the Screenwriter's Bible. It's five books in one about writing and selling a script. Lots of information in it.
