Denne linken: http://www.writing-world.com/columns/screen/screen07.shtml ga i alle fall meg en god ide om hva det handler om!!! Linken over hevder: Pitch: You aren't expected to have all the details of every story worked out, but you should have all the main points covered. In other words, know who the main character is, what he or she wants, and what stands in the way. Be able to tell the story with enthusiasm, complete with a beginning, a middle, and an end. Outline: An OUTLINE is something you do once you've been hired to write the film or the TV episode. It's a tool to help you write the film or the TV episode and (crucially) it's a step for which you get paid. When the time comes you'll need to do it, but you don't ever need to turn one in without a prior written agreement and a forthcoming check. If you don't use an outline when you write, there's plenty of time to learn how to do one after you've sold your pitch. On the other hand, I personally think an outline is invaluable as a writing tool; it gives you a place to work out all the structural problems before you start writing dialogue. But that kind of personal outline can be informal, messy, or even incomprehensible to outside eyes, because you're the only one who'll ever read it. Synopsis: You will never need to write a SYNOPSIS, so don't sweat it. Now, sometimes people ask you to send a synopsis of your movie for them to consider producing, but that's not really what they mean. What they want for you to send them is a written PITCH, as opposed to a verbal pitch. Don't be fooled. A synopsis encapsulates a story; a pitch is designed to sell it. It's not about telling them this happens then this happens then this happens. It's about telling them this is so cool and then this is even cooler and then, Surprise!, this is the coolest of all. It's much less about the details than about the sizzle. So don't worry about synopses; instead, spend your time getting good at pitching both verbally and in writing. Treatment: Finally, the TREATMENT. Here is the first rule of pitching: NEVER, EVER leave anything behind. Ever. Some people will tell you there are legal reasons, and some people will tell you I'm all wet and you should have a treatment to leave behind. Ignore them. The reason you don't ever, ever leave anything behind is that when someone in the room likes your idea, what they'll remember are the bits they liked, the bits that worked, and their own spin on the project. They won't remember the bits they didn't like, that didn't work, and that they aren't invested in... unless you leave behind something in writing to remind them. Let them pitch the idea up to their boss with the enthusiasm that comes from their own investment in the story. In other words, from their own notes. If they like the idea, that's all you want. You've done your job. They'll do their job from there. Leaving something behind will only ever hurt your chances of selling the pitch. Vel det var stort sett hele linken :roll: men det burde vel klare opp litt? Eller skal dere fortsette å krangle? 8O Nå forstår i alle fall jeg det slik at Pitch kommer først!
