This came out of a chat between Emevsa (http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/user/Emevsa/), Bravo (http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/user/bravo1102), and I in a thread about turning your comic into a film or TV show.
How about US DDers practise doing short script adaptations of parts of our comics, as if we were writing it for a movie or TV show to be acted by REAL people.
We can then read it out live on the Quackcast, with the Quackcast players performing the roles of your characters in the scene of your choice.
All you'd need to do is write out a single page in script format, no more:
- Write the dialogue.
- Tell us about the setting.
- Tell us what the characters are doing in the scene.
- Give us direction about how the characters should sound like and how they should be feeling (Anxious, sad, happy, arrogant, evil…)
- Describe any sound effects.
- Describe the type of music that should be going on. (the style, not a specific song, so we can match it with something not copyrighted)
It'll be great practise for you for what it takes to write a script if you ever want to turn your comic into a movie.
It'll also be cool advertising for your comic in the best way possible.
If enough people give this a go we'll make a whole Quackcast out of it!
You can even record it all yourself and we will play it on the cast for you. If not you can decide which of the Quackcast players get which role: Ozoneocean, Banes, Tantz Aerine, or Pitface!
This could be the best thing EVER ^_^
