This is what's great about indietalk; CF and SleepyDog come into the
discussion as directors, or producer/directors, thinking about the issues
in making the movie. In the “Screenwriting” forum I see the discussion
from the perspective of the writer. Get your vision on paper. Tell your
story.

Mostafa is not a director. He will not be making this movie. His concern
isn't camera placement or how to record audio. He is trying to write a
low budget short that director will want to make. Once it's finished and
in the proper format CF and SleepyDog would likely pass siting the
challenges of shooting a road movie. I, on the other hand, might agree
to shoot it. I could easily shoot in a movie car. I could get great audio
in a moving car.

My only issue is throwing production into the mix when discussing the
screenplay at this early stage. I believe a writer should be encouraged
to write the story they want to write without thinking of the challenges
of production. I don't see the need at this stage to worry if some director
somewhere personally finds shooting in a car difficult. Or if a director
somewhere had already made the mistake and won't repeat it. There are
many directors who are up to the challenge of shooting in a moving car.

I would love to see nobody work on this until it's up to par.

Unintended? Notice how I used his real name in the second paragraph....

I'm thrilled someone got it.

@directorik
Thanks! If you think it is not bad, I can work more as much as can, though.


@sweetie,
You seriously think I can't be good in English and can't be good even as a cowriter?


Thanks!
