Not many of these matches the film's style. The Pulp Fiction poster was pretty cool, though
WhenI Got writers block, I usually make up a story in my head in about 10 minutes. Just the important scenes/plot points. Doesnt have to be a good story (it rarely is) Then I analyze it, and then I know what the foundation for the story I actually wanna tell is, and the rest pops up more or less automatically when writing the first treatment.
Writing a 30-page script at age 13? Damn, you go!
Wish I had that discipline in that age.
If it's just a small project that you do to learn to make a short and not anything that'll be able to get into a festival, just use copyright material.
Not that my productions have been professional, but I do the same as S. Baldassarre. Only replay the video to check of technical errors, when directing.
Sometimes if the shot is difficult and we haven't planned it very well, I'll look at the video to see what should be changed. But again.. that's because I'm not exactly a professional.
Do you practise with the actors before then?
And don't you ever miss having more time to plan the shot?
