Rykrof Enloe Series - photonovel editor?
« on: April 9, 2005, 02:09 AM »
I've had a lot of suggestions on changes/what I should have done different on certain photonovels.  Either PM's at RS.com or emails usually.  I have therefore decided that it may be better to have a second opinion on these before releasing them.

Famine, you are an obvious choice on these as you usually see them before they are posted anywhere.  Do you want to be a first opinion for me?  Like maybe give me some feedback on them before they are posted?

Or is anyone else interested in this too?  My thought is to proceed with my regular ideas, and then send them on as usual - but to maybe get a second opinion before posting the final story, as these aren't just for me; but hopefully for the entertainment of others - or so I hope.   :-\

Chewie,

As a professional editor by trade, I'd be happy to offer any suggestions.

Thanks my friend.  What I might do, is send you a basic script outline for each story... then you can tell me if you think anything needs to be tweaked on a bit.  What do you think about that?  This would probably start after #10 which should be up in a couple of days.

I think having more than just one crazy mind on these might make them a little more fun, plus more people could be involved. 

 :P

One thing I'd suggest right off the bat is to take multiple pictures from multiple angles of every seen. That way we can pick which one best conveys the action, and has the most drama.

I'd also like to see more close-ups. For example, think of when Dooku confronted the two Jedi...a shot of their faces before locking up (and getting their hats handed to them) would have been great and added a little tension.

Thanks for the suggestions.

You know what - I think I need to somehow upgrade my computer - I actually ran out of space with all the stuff I have saved on here... and had to delete a lot of crap.  So that might keep me a bit limited on taking extra shots...

So... this is my basic idea.  I am going to come up with the scripts for the stories - send the basic idea to Darth Delicious, and get feedback from you.  Then send the pics to Famine like usual.  Famine, then after you read them, let me know if there is anything that seems out of whack to you.  I usually think I have a good idea, but there are always times when I either miss something or may not explain something too well.

Then, I'll redo if needed, and send the "issue" back to DD for a bit more feedback.  Then get it finalized with Famine.

I still want to make these 99% my own if possible - but seriously, I know there are times when I might not explain something as well as I intend to.  You guys can be there (if you want to) to keep me in line.   :)

DD - I need your email address.  Can you PM it to me, or email me at pike1067@earthlink.net?

Chewie,

Sounds like you got a lot of help already, but I'm always happy to bounce ideas, look at preview pictures, whatever....

...but I'll understand if you don't want too many thumbs in your soup!

Look forward to the next installment!

Thanks for the great response guys.  Several offers here and a few emails too!

Since Famine is the one hosting them, most of my questions will be directed at him.  But there will be other times when I ask some others of you for some suggestions too. 

I would ask that we keep the comments about the storyline to PM's and emails so as not to give too much away.

"Depths of Cholganna" is already part 10 in the series... it's really hard to believe there are already 10 of them. 

I have some decisions to make with what is going to happen with the end of the Clone Wars... I think I have some ideas to keep the storyline going... but we will take this on a story by story basis.

So far, the series is entering it's 3rd Clone Wars story, and is only a couple months into the war.  So there's a lot to go!

 :P

Once I'm back on my feet with a new hard-drive, I'd love to work with you guys and even offer some suggestions. I'm the editor for a newsletter, so does that make me a Pro, also? ???

I'm hoping that sooner than later I can get access to something more than this crappy dialup so that I can participate more in this kind of stuff.

Brad, I am totally looking forward to you being able to be more involved.  You are the man.

And yes, I consider you a pro.

I've had several offers now, and all are very generous ones and from good people that I respect.  So - to be fair, when I have an idea for a story with a question on how to handle a situation, what I think I am going to do is send the certain people a PM with a question on what they think the best route is - all ideas will be considered and will help me make a better decision.

Famine is hosting them for me, so he will probably be my final set of eyes (looking for typos, grammar errors, dumb sentences, cheesy ideas, etc.).  From time to time I will also ask one of you to check something for me to if that's alright.

 :P
