Just a quick post before I bolt off to work. The Storyboarding class is proving a huge help with my revisions. The Scene Sheet has helped me blend four scenes into one, cut a couple others and make notes on what I should be adding in to give the scene more punch. I think this will definitely replace the scene caps I was previously using as it allows me to put in more information about the point of the scene and how it changes the story.
If anyone gets the chance to take this course next time it is offered, I highly recommend it. Even if the Conflict Grid twists your brain into knots the way it did mine. It's a necessary exercise to make sure the story works before you get halfway through it and realize it doesn't.
I was definitely dreading revisions before I started this class, but now, I'm looking forward to it because its allowed me to wrap my head around what I need to do and I know the story will end up better because of it. Which is kind of the whole point.
And just for a little incentive - here's a pix from 3:10 to Yuma. A little Russell Crowe for Anne, and a little Christian Bale for me. Have I mentioned how I cannot wait for this movie to come out?
And, as a complete aside, here's a little shout-0ut to my Dad today who is celebrating his birthday today. Happy birthday, Pops!
