Community Spec Script Toolkit: Part 1 – Homework « the [eventual] sitcom writer I was originally going to post one super-sized blog entry related to writing a Community Spec Script. As I approached page five, I realized two things: By the time I finish and post this entire Spec Toolkit, Jeff Winger will have probably already graduated from Greendale, thus negating the need for anyone to write a Community spec.Nobody has the time or interest to read a 10-page (single spaced) blog post written by some random guy from Virginia who has no idea what he’s even talking about. So, here we go with my first official blog post, and Part 1 of the Community Spec Script Toolkit… There’s no doubt that Community is quickly becoming one of the hot new shows for aspiring writers to spec. Whenever spec-ing a sitcom, I feel it’s best to fully immerse yourself into the show. It goes without saying (but I guess I’m saying it anyway) that you need to watch every episode. Other than watching every Thursday night at 8 pm on NBC (free advertisement? Don’t forget to check out… Like this:

But, for me, this episode is was a big, gooey love letter to a show that I continue to enjoy in syndication, so you’ll have to pardon me while I gush about it.

cours ecrire un scenario à la question“que vois-je sur l'écran ?”. Il vaut beaucoup mieux écrire que”Rocky, boxeur autour de la trentaine monte sur le ring d'une salle de sportminable de banlieue, des gants en piteux état aux poignets”. A présent nousavons là une action qui peut être filmée et qui évoque le concept de “raté”. Acause de cela nous ne pouvons pas non plus, dans un scénario, nousétendre sur la vie intérieure de nos personnages . . Salut Maman ” cela est permis et fait passer le message.Parce que, bien sûr, dans le cinéma moderne la bande sonore existe. LANGAGE NON TECHNIQUELe scénario doit être écrit dans un langage qui ne soit pas technique. On vousdemande en fait d'éviter des termes techniques tels que “panoramique”, “dolly”,“travelling”, “plan américain”, etc En ne respectant pas cette règle, d'une part vousrendrez le metteur en scène furieux (il veut décider de ces choses lui-même), etd'autre part vous alourdirez le texte et rendrez sa lecture difficile (et un scénario doitavant tout être lu).
