Now, more than ever, is the time to write that screenplay.
Writers have the nearly impossible task of turning those little sparks of ideas into living, breathing film narratives that satisfy the many demands placed upon them. If you're lucky enough to have a bounty of great story ideas knocking around in that brain of yours, then you're probably unlucky enough to be like the rest of us who have a really hard time fully fleshing them out into a screenplay.
But thanks to LA-based writer/director Seth Worley, there is now a resource called the Storyclock Notebook that can help writers turn their ideas into scripts. It not only allows writers to see gaps in their stories by providing a bird's eye view of their scripts (which is often the view we need when we're obsessing over details), but it also acts as a research and development tool.
Check out this pitch video for the Storyclock Notebook below, which is as hilarious as it is informative.
Film Riot host Ryan Connolly talks a little bit about Storyclock in their latest YouTube video. (His spiel starts at around 1:40.)
Worley's Storyclock Notebook is currently on Kickstarter, and as of today has raised over $41K in pledges, shattering it's original goal of $12,500. This thing is definitely not going to break any banks. Here's a pricing breakdown:
- Digital PDF: $5
- (1) Storyclock Notebook + digital PDF: $12
- 3-Pack + digital PDF + video tutorial: $29
- 5-Pack + digital PDF + video tutorial: $45
There are 22 days left in the campaign, so if you're interested in learning more about this great writing resource, or if you're ready to make a pledge, head on over to Kickstarter.
