Writing a Script with Friends' Help

Another category I am joining in a writing contest is the screenplay in Filipino. The story is something I've long wanted to write about - a bi-polar patient who finds true love.

Two "big-time" friends came over. First, we had a sumptuous lunch of ginataang kuhol, lumpiang shanghai, spam, vegetables (tomatoes, onions, string beans in calamansi), monggo, rice, softdrinks and fruits (mango for me, star apple for them).

Almost immediately after eating, I made each of them read what is called a storyline - a longer version of a synopsis of a movie. I then discussed various aspects of my screenplay - title, character, plot, message, specific scenes, even dialogue.

I would say it was a healthy exchange of ideas as I was open to their suggestions while occasionally challenging them as well.

The main objective of the movie is not so much the kilig factor of a love story. It is more of enlightening the audience about bi-polar mood disorder, which as most of you know by now, I am afflicted of.

I'm eager already to write the screenplay! Again, wish me luck!

  2. If you are stalling out with your weight loss and haven't been doing strength training (or
    strength training plus cardio) then this might be your
    problem. Super foods include certain berries, fruits and mushrooms.

  3. The fact on the matter is that idea not enough to have specifics of auto insurance, you also should collect info
    about other pursuits. Thereby, you can convince the department issuing SR22
    auto insurance that you will soon become a
    responsible driver. When shopping for insurance, keep in mind that an insurance agent does not necessarily know that an SR-22
    filing is required unless a client specifically asks for one.

  4. I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
