My name is Hamish Darby.
I love amateur theatre and want to collaborate and develop skills writing comic dialogue scripts that can be used for either theatre or film. Some novelists incorporate complete sets of dialogue into their novels.
CC-BY screenplays are rare but easy enough to adapt from good dialogue. Screenplays make for scroll-of-death reading and poor utilization of wiki space, since they tend to use less than a third of the page with speakers lines, while the rest is blank space or cinematic directions.
I observe the following from my background in amateur theatre.
- Auditions attract a gender mix around one male:three female.
- At least eight characters - lightens the line learning load / inclusive.
- Make it funny.
- Range of emotions.
- Use CC-BY music.
- Break up the plot with interval scenes.
- No more than 60 minutes duration.
- Edit for quality.
