Banes at 12:00AM, April 14, 2022


Peacemaker is probably not everyone's cup of tea…but it must be seen at least once

When Vince Gilligan was co-creating the idea for the Better Call Saul spinoff, he said that one of the challenges he and Peter Gould and ...

Establishing Shots

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 10, 2022



The establishing shot sets up the setting of a scene, of course. It could be a wide shot of a city or a house, or a crowded bar, or two characters at a dinner table.

It'll need more detail than other panels; even in a simpler art style, establishing ...

Horror within beauty

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 8, 2022



This trope might come in several different packages, but it always involves the same stages: a presence (a character, an apparition, an item, a painting, etc) appears to be perfect, gorgeous, stunningly beautiful, angelic in every way relevant. Then suddenly or gradually, this beauty dissolves into nightmarish horror: the character ...

I'm wounded but you can't see it!

Hi! So Spooky Season has begun and my brain has gone into fart mode and it's currently slow on bringing up topics right now!

Consequences & Familiarity

damehelsing at 12:00AM, Sept. 19, 2021



How many of you write serious/drama filled stories? Or even characters that truly suffer consequences?

But now I wanted to talk about recognizing when you need to stop, when you can come back and the thought process you should take on while you’re away from your ...

Mundane Activities

Banes at 12:00AM, Aug. 26, 2021



A conceit or gimmick on the series ‘24’ was that it took place in real time. One hour on the show was one hour of activities, and the 24-episode season covered the events of a single day.

As entertainment, I loved that show, and appreciated the gimmick of it with ...
