With the impending Musk-opalypse over on birdsite, I'm accelerating my extrication from that mess. Main thing I use for that place for is the #Screenwriting community. So I'm sending a message out into the 'verse: Any #Screenwriter (s) out there looking to connect? #Screenplay #Writing #Writer #PreWGA #filmmaking
This is wonderful and I hope all the #Screenwriting people will connect (unfortunately docfilm here).
I am myself writing a Fediverse software (so that you can do a movie together :) - may I ask you for a favour?
In the past days I was working on the vocabulary to define Roles and Relations in Movie making.
See https://redaktor.github.io/vocab/w3id.org/class/esc/scheme.en.html (-> 0112, search not working yet) –
unfortunately I am a german speaker and all sources are english.
Is "Screenplay" the same than "Screenwriter"?
What is the difference to "Script" and "Scenario Writer".
@sl007 Sounds like an interesting project! To answer your questions “Screenplay” is the text written by a “Screenwriter” so they are different things. “Script” is another word for “Screenplay.” “Scenario Writer” is not, to my knowledge, a commonly used term in filmmaking. “Scenario” refers to an idea for a situation, one might use scenarios in improvisation or interactive media such as a table top game, but not really film.
Ah, that helped a lot.
Got it exactly wrong :)
Will be fixed today, forgot to follow, done now :)
There is much other software based on the same protocol and I would just hope that devs. talk more to each other, we have a monthly meeting. Hope you are also aware of #peertube (for videos) …
You highlighted a really underlying issue.
The idea of the vocab and cool underlying https://skohub.io is that you can simply follow "Screenwriter" and discover others by this.
So, anything there is an `Actor` and it should really document and distinct between e.g. `Person` and Actors which are also an `Object`, like Screenplay …
PS: Always curious what the Screenwriters-Community would expect from a Content Managing Fediverse software :)
What we really need is a general Fediverse explainer video. From the Conf we made there is the video by @derek https://conf.tube/w/d8c8ed69-79f0-4987-bafe-84c01f38f966 and maybe we can do this without the politics (yes, everything is politics) but like for a kid in the 80s expecting A-Team to happen (well, or whatever never kids expect …)
