Stockholm Film Festival - Day 5

oh wow Electric Six and Hope Of The States released new albums this year too!

And midaircondo is really good!



Movies I saw today;

The Missing Star
Good.

Things To Do
Good script.
Good acting by some, bad by others.
Directing amateurish but okay, has potential.



And I've been planning on writing this webcomic but I can't decide on how to write it, from what perspective I mean. It's basically just world-building so the core ideas can be done in several different ways.

I had this idea from the start and I've written the first part with that, but then about a week ago I got this other idea, which is alot easier to write but probably has less drama and story to it.

But I still like it in a way, it's simple and episodic and I can share all these strange and surreal ideas I've been piling up.

It's annoying! I keep changing my mind on what I prefer so I can't start writing it for real!

The first way to write it is with a character you see experiencing the stuff, just like a normal comic about this character.

And the other way is this sort of fake journal-comic by a made up character experiencing the stuff and then telling people about it through a comic.

This way might just turn into exposition of the world and events instead of a real story. But I think I might be able to put in this sort of story, or drama if I really try. And I feel this was is alot easier and more natural writing. And it's alot easier just to jump into a setting really quickly by doing it journal-style.

But I have a feeling this is just me being lazy and trying to make it easy for me. And the first style is actually better story-telling, more by pictures and dialogue instead of these narrator like journal captions.

-sigh-

I really like the character on the first idea.. but the other gives alot more freedom in how to introduce all the stuff.

bah! I can't decide! I like both ways! :S

damn.
