Roman Soto
Aspiring Writer/Director

Hello. I just made a new account here, and I am excited to meet other people who are looking to enter, or already in, the entertainment industry. I'm 20, and I am going to be moving to Oklahoma from Connecticut soon. Filmmaking is what I want to do for the rest of my life and I am very eager to get my career started.

Roman Soto

Yeah! I have many movies in my collection. From classic Hollywood, to modern blockbusters, to silent cinema, to foreign arthouse. I love many of them, but I even have problems with some films that I o...

One thing I’d recommend is study the history of film, and where the techniques came from, not just where another director paid homage to them. Getting to the source teaches a director how to be creative and innovative with limited resources and some imagination.

Ooo, YES, the original Bad Boys is SO GOOD! I grew up in love with Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon as well. I'm not bidding, but I love the genre and wanted to participate ;-)

Louisa Klein

I could do a good job, since I grew up with all sort of 80s movies where the protagonist was a straight male, which made me feel very frustrated. Is there any money on the table? I write action too.

Dan MaxXx , I have considered that and though it is tempting to retain full ownership and receive all the credit if the film was ever to be made, I am a big believer in giving credit where credit is d...

Filmmaking is a Fickle Mistress...

What’s essential to being a good filmmaker? First and foremost, its passion. Regardless of what you want to believe, filmmaking will be one of the most seductive, yet volatile and deceptive relationships you will ever grapple with. I’ve quipped it's my “fatal attraction” because of the pleasure and...

Finding and Understanding Tone and Voice in Your Story

Hey fellow writers, I had a question I wanted to pose. When I write stories, I naturally just write them without considering much of what my “tone” is. Any suggestions as to how a writer identifies what their tone is if they never considered it before? I think this is especially important as I start...

Your character arc will define his/her voice and tone to it, e.g. A nun is with an arc of such and will have a respectful religious voice with a soft natured tone that would never use vulgar language,...

Morris Stuttard

Agreed that individual characters have their own tone in dialogue while also embracing story elements, and especially the endings of plotlines (the arcs). Arcs act as a kind of cosmological statement...

Once you get confident in your own writing. Once you are writing what you want and not what you think people want. This is when you voice will begin to develop and with that your tone.
