“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein
“Love, Truth and Honesty:”
Sandeep Narayan Tripathi, inspired by Penelope, sat down to write his first play but the review he received was quite discouraging: No structure whatsoever which makes the work so distracting it cannot be read easily. The length of this script put in proper form would most probably exceed a three-hour running time. Eliminate dedication; table of contents; foreword and preface – these do not belong in any kind of screenplay. The motivation for writing is here. The basis of the story, plots, turning points, all here once we put them into a structure. On a scale of 1 to 10, the Reality of Concept is 7, once we get past the roadblocks. Study Master/Shooting Script Format and Re-Write. Note: Lyrics to song(s) copyrighted by third parties cannot be included or submitted in a screenplay without the advance permission of the copyright owner.
The Reality of Concept (70%) (based on Imagination) became the driving force and the advise to study Master/Shooting Script gave me the enthusiasm and determination to move head with my dream.
“A Kite in the Wind”
As I turned each page and became increasingly aware of Mr. Tripathi’s talent for Movie and Teleplay Direction — (as evidenced by the highly advanced technical know-how in creating visual effects with the camera and the sound that should stand him in good stand with those production companies who look to their script-writers for every camera angle) — I was struck with the thought that wherever this screenwriter learned the art and craft of writing for the screen — both large and small — he learned it very well indeed. I found myself following his stage and camera direction with as much interest as I followed his story.
However, I know from experience with the writers Guild of America, West, that very frequently, the better production companies and studios find highly detailed shooting script a total turn off and they feel that the writer has not left anything to the imagination of the Director and camera crew and will be entirely too rigid and inflexible in his handling of the property. This is something for Mr. Tripathi to consider when he submits a totally detailed script to a production company.
“A Wilderness of Voices”
It’s been quite a journey – from Love, Truth & Honesty to A Kite in the Wind to A Wilderness of Voices. There’s been a gap of over 20 years between A Kite in the Wind and A Wilderness of Voices – due to sound judgment, rational thinking as well as pre-defined priorities. I believe with the help of Flowering, Moment by Moment, I will be able to create a masterpiece, if not, close to it. The dream, as well as the Reality of Concept, is monumental. Imagination has played a vital role. Whether or not it will materialize, only time will tell.
Believe, Imagine & Dream with a little bit of faith, loads of trust and self-confidence. After all, Imagination is the foundation as well as the building block(s) of “A Wilderness of Voices”.
