Dialogue 101 lesson 1Hello everyone! LordOsteous here! Feels good to finally have the ball rolling again, doesn't it?
So, a lot of people have asked me about scripting and dialogue, and I have seen my share of unnecessary and just poor dialogue while working on this project. With scripting being one of my main contributions to the project, I have decided to write a basic tutorial so that we can get this done faster and with less re-writing and drafting and all that BBLLLAAAAHHHHH
(Just so everyone knows I am not singling anyone out or bashing people for not having perfect dialogue, this is about making us all better scripters so we can make an amazing movie)
I present lesson 1 in Dialogue 101:
THE BASICS AND NESSESITY
So, what is the significance of dialogue and what makes it good? Well, dialogue is what characters say to each other, and how one character feels towards another or about the situation is usually expressed most plainly in what they say, so dialogue is not just words, but an actual part of
Spyro's training with Cyril Spyro's training with Cyril Script
Spyro, Sparx and Cyril make it back to the temple in one piece.
Volteer: ooh it is good to have you back Cyril, even though I was captured for months and we haven’t been able to talk or spend time together and… and…

Volteer: but it is just so exciting, exhilarating, overwhelming, surprising, unexpectable and… and…
Sparx: ok… no more thesaurus for you pal
Ignitus: ALL OF YOU PLEASE BE QUIET! It is very exciting and encouraging that Spyro has saved the two of you so we can have this reunion but aren’t we missing someone?
Cyril: yes, yes, of course we are missing Terrador
Ignitus: Exactly… ok now how do we proceed?
Cyril: yes I can help us proceed… Cyril turns his

Int: Temple day
Pitch black scene as we enter the movie
In the year of the dragon, in a world beyond the realms…
The camera sweeps through mushroom trees and across Silver River…
I, like all the others, awaited the birth of the one whom the prophecies foretold...
We follow IGNITUS into a vaulted dome-like chamber, full of pedestals with multi-colored dragon eggs and sleeping parent dragons. Zooming shot towards the far end of the room, where a velvet cushion sits in a basin with stylistic images of dragons.
A purple dragon, who would change our world forever.
Mirania, Ignitus’s wife walks in through the door with a mushroom cap with a pink egg in it. Ignitus looks down on the egg.
Mirania takes the egg to the corner sets it down and lies down by it. Then two parents enter through the door with two mushroom caps. Ignitus walks up to the two and sees the red egg
Spyro meeting and training with TerradorAfter Spyro beats Stream and its rider, he also frees Terrador. Terrador is regaining his consciousness, when he’s fully conscious; he can’t believe that Spyro the purple dragon lives…
Terrador : The purple dragon… lives!
Sparx : He’s got a name you know.
Spyro : Yes, my name is Spyro… and you must be Terrador.
Terrador : Yes, yes I am, and I must say I never thought I’d live to meet you, Spyro.
Sparx : Look, I’d love to sit here and hug everybody and chit chat, but how ‘bout we leave before the volcano blows us up?
Terrador : You’re right. I’ve got to tell the others what Cynder is up to.
Sparx : Let’s go. I’m right behind you. Actually, I’m right in front of you.
Just after that, one of the crater around them explodes, blows lava up straight to the sky, forming a pillar of flame. Behind the bursting lava comes up Cynder. She loses a high-pitched shriek.
Terrador : Run!
Sparx : Look, when the g
