Re: Fan Film Writer's Primer

Yeah, but I love all those little tropes though.

Like when somebody calls the Captain and says "You better take a look at this" without actually telling him what the hell is going on? It's awesome.

Or when a character enters a scene to find another character standing at the window staring out... what the hell are they doing there? I can only imagine walking into my bedroom to find my wife just standing by the window gazing longingly all the time.

I can see why they might be irritating to some, but they're part of the whole heightened stylistic storytelling they developed in the 90's shows, and I get a kick out of them.

A fan film seems like the perfect vehicle to celebrate these things.
