There are only 2 ways of writing, essentially. You’re either Objective, or Subjective. For example, “The Lion King is a Disney animated feature that follows the adventures of the young lion Simba…”(Objective). Vs. “The Lion King changed my life. Thereafter my life’s purpose was to work on animated motion pictures…” (Subjective). See the difference? It’s hard to do both.
Reading your posts I notice how your writing gravitates toward one end of the spectrum. It fascinates me. And I value both! The objective – you selfless reviewers. You obsequious fact-finders, and truth tamers. I bow to you. I relish you! Just as I relish the subjective – You. Yes, YOU! You cool drink of a word spinner easing our displeasure in the heat of the night. You make me smile. You get it.
I’ve grown lazy with my writing, fallen into bad habits like crossing the streams ^^^. So I try to keep my posts shorter now.
I’m perfectly fine letting my writing go a bit, because I’ve reinvested this energy into my montage filmmaking. And I’m fully committed to quality there. After years of practice it’s finally starting to show. Screaming of the Lambs was nearly air-tight, and well received.
A Dark Night will also be NEARLY air-tight. Once you realize the scope of this thing, the degree of difficulty, I think you’ll cut me a break, like when a line of dialogue is muddled bc I couldn’t fully erase the original music blaring over the character’s speech. Or when a slow motion shot lags a little because it wasn’t meant to be shown in slow motion.
By far my biggest concern remains – whether you will be able to latch onto the unconventional method of storytelling. It worked in Screaming. It should work here. But this one is asking a little more than its predecessor. Asking you to do a little more work inside your head. Especially if you have not seen these movies. It’s a mind game for sure. The MOVIES are mind games. So it fits.
We’re gonna find out. Ohhh yes.. we’re gonna find out if this is the one where they finally come and lock him up!
I digress. Where were we?
