Someday, Ray, I'm gonna cut you in half like a redwood and count the rings just to figure out exactly how old you are!

Good on you for honoring that "Short Story Muse" who led you a tad outside your comfort zone!!!!

Looking forward to reading it...Don't forget to let us know where to find it!

Ain't that the truth !

Thanks Midnite for your imput.

And Ray,if you would stop for one second, and just not worry about the copyright and just tell the damn story, we'd all be the better for it.

cheers, niteshift

Well nite,
There are all kinds of posts of producers looking for scripts! And after 2 and 1/2 months my registration still has not come back. All I can say is there must be a lot more people writing scripts than songs! Geronimo!

What is the problem with not publishing before Copyright

if it comes on here it's Copyrighted

I once collaborated with a guy, a so called lyric writer

who was scared of sending any re writes because it might

be stolen the thing was he was not a very good writer and

was still learning like all of us Just saying not looking

for an argument life's too short RAY

One of the most important principles of songwriting is to remember that a good song is a partnership of many different components, all working together to produce a satisfying musical experience.

In that respect, song components are either enhancing or compromising their combined effects.

I think Cheyenne is right Ray. Your work was copyrighted the moment you wrote it down. Just put it out there to the universe..... I don't know what happens though, if the universe replies. smile

I am looking to do something with a music video narrative that follows a concept.
I have been doing ads quite a bit towards that and have been using Adobe Elements to where I have not been hooked to a cloud, looking at video making and its many facets.
How much does amazon or other sites require to be hooked to a cloud?
Everything is so much to be shared nowadays. Do the members do anything standalone anymore? Not hooked in to the cloud?

Hey Matt,

The "cloud" is not really important re creativity or getting your ideas together.

What I find, that it's simply a storage space, and a space where you can "hire" software rather than own it.

That, together with software what allows you to work on a collaborative project with others, gives a focal point where computing power can be utilised.

Example ; I'm currently working on a 20 second 3d mock up where I want the camera to "walk" through the scene. If my own computer did it, the rendering would take 47 hours. If I use the cloud and a private provider, that same rendering takes about 20 minutes using "quote" a minimum of 3000 cpu's for about $10.

So it's about using money and time wisely, in regard to how much time do you have, and what is most cost effective.

There is no big drama about the cloud. It's simply just storing things on a bigger server, with far greater computing power, and being able to pay for hireage of a computer programme ( should you require it ) rather than owning the programme, and using that computing power to generate your finalised result. Simply something you cannot do with the best of domestic computers.

Stand alone ? That's fine, and for music, if you're not doing it professionally, most home computers will render music only in a relatively small amount of time.

cheers, niteshift

Thanks niteshift!

That has given me quite a bit to think about.
My instructor informed me about Adobe Essentials but mentioned the time factor too.
I am entering another quarter in the fall and could probably deal with the time.
But I am going to be looking at internships.
So maybe I will eventually have to get connected to the cloud to compete with ads.

I would love to have a brain and invent the best, fastest server.

Hey Matt,

The best server you have is your own brain, because that's where the creativity is. The rest is just time and patience. smile

Hey All, I thought I might put up a few pages of script and the song that accompanies it. This one was generously donated to the cause by Scott Campbell and Bob Pickens. Since Trigger St seems to have gone belly up, Amazon is a no show and filmmakers.com just seem to want to run "contests", I thought heck, why not ? The intent, since it's a film with music, is to bury music within the script so the reader can have a listen and a sing along as they are reading. Kinda like those musical books for kids, but for adults like ..... um, interns which flick through the dialogue and comment that "it's just not what we're looking for at the moment" smile Please excuse the formatting, it won't correct. Opening scenes overlayed with credits......



EXT/INT 60ís CAR ON RURAL BACKROADS Ė 30 YRS PREVIOUS

TONI, 8 yrs old female, DANNY 6 yrs old male, KASEY 10 yrs old female and TONIíS DAD, 30ís male, rugged and sun tanned, a farming family ,drive along dusty rural roads in an old 1960s car.

Near dusk on a hot afternoon, the windows are wound down.

Toniís Dad sits in the front bench seat, the three children sit in the back.

The radio is blaring, and they are all singing along.

Song - Taking the Backroads Home Intercut musically with the Beatles "She Loves You, Yeah Yeah Yeah"

The children are play fighting, and start to become out of control. Toni is pinching her Dadís ears as he drives.

TONIS DAD
Hey you guys, settle down a
bit will you ?

The children continue their antics, and the squeals become louder. Toni appears to be the main instigator

TONIS DAD
( Looking in rear view mirror with kindly feigned annoyance )
I said tone it down !

The children appear to pay little attention as the car rounds a bend heading towards a one lane bridge.

TONIS DAD
( Looking over shoulder )
I said . . .

Toniís Dad takes his eyes off the road to deal with the children, then returns his vision to the road.

The sun flares through the windscreen.

Toniís Dad misses the entrance to a bridge. The car clips the side of the bridge, and careers down an embankment.

Upon first impact, Toni is seen flying from the back seat and crashing through the front windscreen.

The other occupants are seen tumbling inside the car.

The car lands upon itsí side into a river below.


EXT. TOP OF ONE LANE BRIDGE

Toni, cut and bruised, stands balancing upon the railing of the bridge, her hands outstretched slightly from her sides.

Motionless, she stares into the distance.

The car is half submerged below in the water.
