How Not to Make Me Care in StoriesI'm being very specific here: this is ME we're talking about. Perhaps not you, but I can only work by what I know for now. Why a journal so soon on the heels of the last?How Not to Make Me Care in Stories1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Because this sort of thing is bothering me a lot lately. It seems many people, critics and storytellers alike, have all but abandoned the (admittedly) hard work it takes to make me care.
Sure appealing to a massive cinema buff like me is probably not the best business model, but it seems bizarre to me that the requirement is to decrease my expectations, rather then storytellers strive to improve. People get huffy when demands are made on screenwriters/directors to use their millions of dollars of budget, their top shelf actors, their state of the art special effects to try and entertain, make sense, and engage.
After years of watching movies and shows, trying to make movies, writing screenplays, reading books on films and going to film school I've come to the conclusion that I'm not crazy in a lot of my demands. Just

-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 cup shortening
-3 Tbsp water
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Mix flour with salt in a small bowl.
3. Use a pastry blender to cut in shortening.
4. Mix in the water until it holds as a dough, then roll it out on a lightly floured surface to a circle with a radius about 3/4" inch longer than the pie tin.
5. Get it into the pie tin and smooth out any tears or cracks. Flute the edges to made it beautiful (you can do this by placing the index finger and thumb of one hand against the outside of the shell and gently pulling in while the index finger of your other hand pushes out from the inside of the shell between your other two fingers).
6. Prick the bottom and sides with a fork and bake 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.
*The slime recipe makes enough to fill two pie shells.

22 reglas de Pixar para hacer buenas historiasEsto lo encontré vía Tumblr. Les dejo el link: http://manwaifu.tumblr.com/post/24842715034/pixar-story-rules22 reglas de Pixar para hacer buenas historias2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Traduzco estas 22 reglas que supuestamente se usan en Pixar para crear historias buenas, vía el Twitter de Emma Coats, una artista de Pixar.
1. Se admira a un personaje más por su perseverancia que por su éxito.
2. Debes enfocarte en lo que te resultaría interesante como audiencia, no lo que parezca divertido hacer como guionista. Son cosas diferentes.
3. Intentar escribir un tema es importante, pero no hay forma de que sepas de que se trata la historia hasta que la hayas acabado. Cuando llegues a eso, reescríbela.
4. Había una vez... --------- Todos los días... ------- y un día... -------------, debido a eso... ----------- y entonces.... ------------ hasta que al final... --------- (Es una plantilla)
5. Simplifica. Enfócate... combina personajes, evita usar atajos. Sentirás que pierdes cosas valiosas, pero en el fondo
Seven Deadly Movie SinsA lot of people have taken me to task about my objective positions, reviews, and...well...rants on films. Nowadays it seems improper for a critic to be honestly critical about something, specifically if said thing is in any way popular. After-all its our duty to not hurt other's feelings by saying what they hold dear is in any way flawed.Seven Deadly Movie Sins2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not being sarcastic. This is roughly the argument I keep hearing from many on the subject.
1: Every opinion is equal so why bother trying to promote your own at the expense of others?
2: Every production you criticize is loved by or was created by several human beings so why spit on them?
To answer in order.
1: In terms of filmmaking, NOT every opinion is created equal.
2: You can criticize a production without criticizing people who enjoy it or were involved in its creation.
Without criticism you end up without any guidelines or means to improve. This is the chief reason I see Hollywood as having gone downhill: because people

How to Make Me Care in StoriesThe following four qualities are not requirements by any means for me to enjoy a story in any medium, but they certainly help to let me invest myself deeper into the plot and characters.

1: The Heroes at a Disadvantage
This is a sadly dying art, but one that got me interested in storytelling at a young age. The triumph over adversity is a classic but for me always compelling story to experience, and in order for the triumph to feel earned and victorious there must be an element of risk. A lot of modern day tales seem to feel the audience will not accept a hero/heroine who is not a flawlessly skilled fighter, possesses super human abilities, or is prophesied to be the only hope. The truth is however that as 'cool' as it is to watch our protagonist cle

The primary focus of this group continues to be digital painting and digital drawing, which should be submitted to the 'Featured 4' folder. This group also accepts and has folders for animation, designs and interfaces, deviantWEAR, pixel art and pixel animation, vector and vexel artworks, comic strips, pages and panels, mature content, mixed media, mixed media - 3D, 3D art, commission information, tutorials and resources and also wallpaper. I recently opened two new folders, one for matte painting and another for announcements.
As always, I would like to congratulate the members on the continuing high quality of their artworks, which are always a pleasure for me to accept.

Seven Lessons Hollywood Could Stand to LearnSeveral of my friends are reviewing my old journal entries, so I figured I'd make a new oneSeven Lessons Hollywood Could Stand to Learn3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bear in mind that I am not trying to show how awesome and flawless and what not I am by providing some things Hollywood continually forgets to capitalize on. Quite the opposite. If a guy whose only made real movies in film school can see these simple things are missing for a lot of modern films out of Tinseltown chances are good that they are blatantly lacking.
Hollywood has a lot of hits, but below are some of the ways their misses could be salvaged perhaps.

7: CGI Doesn't Make a Movie
CGI is a tool, its not caulking for plot holes or a substitute for good writing and performances and it is certainly not a good way to draw out the run time. If you go back and watch the movie Aliens you'll see a sobering reminder of what CGI will be in a few years only. In one sequence which is WAY too long a model spacecraft s
Power Levels and Personal StrengthI was requested to re-imagine Dragon Ball Z. The concept intrigued me, and also played into a concern I have about storytelling so here is a journal to address both the re-imagining and the concern.Power Levels and Personal Strength1 year ago in Personal More Like This
How do you make the fantastic boring?
1: Provide zero context, that is to say no reason to invest time or interest in something.
2: Focus on impersonal details and abstract concepts that are left vague and shallow.
3: Make the set up so formulaic it ceases to seem spontaneous and becomes predictable.
Maybe pure, uncut escapism floats your boat, but to me I've always been a glutton for the steak as well as the sizzle. As pretty the veneer is, if there's no substance to me it becomes flavorless and flat.
But the issue here is that not only do a lot of storytellers nowadays seem to miss out on this, they seem to actively pursue the glitz without the meaning behind it, effectively making the most magical, terrifying, wondrous things boring.
It's done with fair to middling intentions.
ATLA/LEGEND OF KORRA OC WRITING CONTESTHello, this is :iconinfernalfeather: and I am posting a journal about a contest I am holding.ATLA/LEGEND OF KORRA OC WRITING CONTEST2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people here on dA have made Avatar OC's whether it be in sketchdumps, doodles, writing, or just floating around in their head. Well this contest will give you the chance to be able to bring them to life!
The rules are simple
1. write a one chapter story involving one of your OC's before Aang's time, in Aang's time or Korra's time. Standalone story is preferred, it can include canon characters but no canon plot that has already taken place with canon charactes. For example you can have a story that took place during the time Sozin's comet came in A: TLA but it CAN NOT be alongside any of the characters (your character worked with toph and sokka, was on the airship fleet etc, will not be accepted) Can have others OC's as Bg characters but main focus will be on on only one
2. no info about your OC's can be written in the Artist's description box
3. only entries in

1: Everybody Loves the New Dictatorship
This never ceases to be hilarious to me. A big evil corporation or totalitarian regime takes power and the first thing they do is outlaw all primary colors, build tons of ugly buildings, hire armies of jack-booted thugs in face concealing helmets to patrol the streets...and apparently people couldn't be happier. Sure they whine about their taskmasters all the time but nobody attempts to rebel in public and said stormtroopers are so dedicated they will chase the hero EVERYWHERE and risk dying in horrible ways just for the honor of missing at them with their guns. In real dictatorships there's plots all the way up to high military officials to topple insane/ex

"I'm trying to sleep Jon." Arin said, burying his face in the pillow, and grunting. "Arin... I'm, lonely..." Jon said softly, "My side of the bed is so cold... I need warmth~" He cooed. Arin looked up bluntly at Jon, "Then be warm." He said softly. "It doesn't work like that!!" Jon whined, bouncing up and down as if he were a 5 year old. "Well what do you want me to do?"
