Serious question for the #Fediverse/#DecentralizedWeb.

What kind of content do y'all want to see produced in the realm of media?

@deadsuperhero's video really inspires me to get on that boat of content creation (outside of other things) and I want to know from y'all. video.jacky.wtf/videos/watch/6

@jalcine

Between old black and white science fiction, and the silent films that were originally made/released/forgotten at a YouTube pace, I'd really like to see super fast production that focuses on imaginative stories.

There's the ability to blend and mesh styles in a lo-fi way to make great things _really_ fast these days.

I'm a crapart/album-a-day fan, so maybe that's just me, but you asked. ;)

What can you do quickly with zero budget? Can you do it faster with less?

@deadsuperhero

@yam655 @jalcine I actually do have a concept in the works, one that could potentially be low-budget.

The biggest challenge is figuring out how to write the script, and get people to star in it.

@deadsuperhero

Which aspect of the "how to write the script" is being tricky for you?

There's the technical side, which might benefit from fountain.io/

Then there's the story side. I kind of know people in the NaNoWriMo community. If you have story-related questions, I know where to find answers.

@jalcine

@yam655 @jalcine I've just not written a dramatic script before. I'd certainly like to try!

@deadsuperhero

It sounds like you are a writer, you've just not done any scripts.

Blake Snyder's "Save the Cat" tends to be recommended by lots of folks. It is script-based, but even novelists have recommended it as it has solid advice.

The storyfix.com/ folks advocate for a novel structure that maps to movies and regularly break down movies.

The July "Camp NaNoWriMo" will include folks writing scripts. (This is as close to a monthly script challenge as they now have.)
