So far, the overwhelming favorites for the pitches are ...AND DEATH FOLLOWED and THE WITCH IN THE WOODS, so those are definitely going on the list. A number of others have had a lot of support, including some particularly savvy recommendations to pursue HACKSAW, so that one will probably make it on as well. I've decided for my first script out I'm going to go for THE WITCH IN THE WOODS as, I'll be honest, it's possibly the doofiest one, I could see myself having a lot of fun with it, and it's the one I see fitting easiest into the Save The Cat setup.
Consequently, I've begun building the official Blake Snyder "Save the Cat" beat sheet for it. We're officially in motion on Script #1.
This blog is about process. That means I'm going to really get into how the sausage is made. Which means that if you want to read the final scripts clean, you should turn back now. I'm about to put up the first planning document, a full beat sheet, the whole kit and caboodle as it stands at inception.
What I'm talking about, essentially, are spoilers.
Seriously.Spoilers, you guys.
OKAY. Everyone who doesn't want to be spoiled is gone, only spoiler-happy story process wonks remain.
And so, without further ado, here is the first pass on the beat sheet for THE WITCH IN THE WOODS.
So there you have it! The humble beginnings. This weekend I set up my Big Board, get out my note cards, and start putting this thing together.
Until then, everyone to their Dragulas!!!
