Go to Dara @Dara.Amarie or Apes @Apes page they have bunch’s of great templates, scripts, etc and they sure can help you out with it. Literally everything there to help you out or if you have instagram: here are people you can go into their google drives for templates and scripts as long as you credit them or in fact go to @kylie_writes and check out her writing tips on her story which is very helpful. There are tons of people there that you can go to their page with template, script, etc and even Kylie got her own tips as well.

Sorry, not very much advance with these scripts as well.

Hey, try this instead:


#8

isn’t this the same as mine?


#9

Nope!
I switched out the @ with & and made some very minor changes
Trust me, it should work ; )


#10

I’m gonna have to inform you next time for help on my script. You seems to be good at it, are you?


#11

Thank you for your kind words : )
I don’t know if I’m that good but I do try my best at helping and there are many amazing directing tips that I like to use :wink:


#12

Well that’s very understandable. But like some new-ish oldish writer like me, we have to learn and practice to get better on these scripts and templates to become a better author or a writer. Although it will take times and hours to make every story line, coding, directing, plot, etc better.

Are you an author and writer?


#13

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since it involves coding. If you have questions about anything, feel free to PM me and make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics. :wink:

Am a writer : )

I agree with this! We don’t become coding experts overnight, but it takes a lot of practice. It took me some time, too, and like many, I started with Joseph Evans’ tutorials.

It does take a lot of time working on our stories, but as we improve, the episodes can be directed much quicker :smile:


#15

:grinning: That’s absolutely true. At least that’s something we can agreed on.
