So as someone that’s been doing this for… A LONG TIME. I know alot about teaching new writers to direct at least to a level where they can write a basic story without any help. I don’t really write anymore I just mess around with script to make some new minigames and such and learning how to do more advanced directing techniques. So I had an idea. I’d like to start a huge collab to write short stories. Only 1-3 episode(s) long.
How would this work exactly?
Well I’d need experienced writers and directors and newbies who don’t know much but would like to learn how to do any and all episode stuff. You’d be partnered up or put into smaller groups to work together to make 1-3 short episodes together. You’d be given a deadline and hopefully the newer writers will learn from the experienced ones so they could go off and confidently write their own story instead of trying to figure it out and get frustrated. The thing about new writers is they have amazing ideas and a lot of inspiration which is drained when you have to learn for so long. This uhm episode boot camp I guess could teach them a lot so they could write amazing stories.
What could you write about? Why do I want to do this?
There’s lots of ideas you could use to write a short story from ghost stories to dreams to short horrors or romances. The reason I want to do short stories though is that I believe when new writers are faced with having to write 1200 lines, well they often write pretty bad stories just to fill up the space. This way they can learn advanced directing techniques and write a really good short story which will teach them more than writing 1200 lines would.
Even if they didn’t want to learn directing or writing but are new at edits maybe then they could work with a more experienced artist to make a cover for the short stories people write.
This isn’t just for writing either, if you love roleplays and wanted to start one you could be partnered up with someone who’s ran one before and make one together here on the forum.
