As you probably know, I think you and I would make great friends. Oh, you didn’t know that? You don’t know who I am? Well, I am Brentt Harshman, a 22 year old who writes stuff at times. Anyways, back to you. I have these dreams where we are so close that we call each other up………….
I created this other blog to post my writing and stuff. Also, this is an open letter to Zachary Quinto.
Woops, sorry about that previous post. Meant to copy and paste the link, not the entire story.
Anyways, I wrote this short story about a year, year and half ago. I was planning on applying to UArts in Philly for their Writing in Film and Television BFA, but I never ended up applying after I decided I would rather go with my first dream of taking improv classes at UCB and living in NYC.
So, after letting a few close friends and family read this, I decided to share it. It’s roughly 10-11 pages long. I like it and would love any criticism! Read away!
When asked about Murray’s comments, Aykroyd admitted that he’s now in charge of the ‘Ghostbusters 3’ script while also defending Stupitsky and Eisenberg’s version, claiming they wrote Murray a classic role in it. Aykroyd noted, “I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I’m working on the script now and those two-Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, [writer-producers of The Office]-wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it…we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I’m very excited about working on it.”
There are some plot details in there as well saying that the long rumored story is about the old crew getting to old and passing the guard to a younger generation of Ghostbusters.
Take a stand. Make a choice. And let that choice strongly inform your character’s subsequent choices. As a goofy example, if you’re an ice cream vendor, try to solve all problems with ice cream or use ice cream related words. Make your choices important by viewing the world around you through those choices.
And commit to those choices. Go all in. No matter how ridiculous or silly or stupid you might feel. If you don’t believe it, we don’t believe it. The audience is ready to follow you anywhere but only if you make the choice to lead them.
Be bold and trust yourself. Make a decision and take us with you.
Reblog because I always need to remind myself of this. Maybe someone else out there needs this too.
reblogged because lately i haven’t been making choices.
Lately, I have been really in my head causing me to either stay on the backline throughout an entire set or just make retarded and stupid choices of dialogue and action in a scene. This wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t know I am better than this. My question is an open question for everyone to answer:
If one finds themselves in their head, how can they actively fix or remedy this situation?
