i need to stop with this movie edits

anonymous asked:

yo yo sophie, what are series that you're binge watching right now? I'm not a serie person, I'm more a movie person but today people love to talk about series more than movies. so please I need a recommendation, thx!

Okay, I’ll try to restrain myself cause I have a problem 😂  my personal blog ain’t called “tvshowfreak” for nothing - I’ll give you my all time favs very limited edition

Still ongoing shows

Orange is the new Black (5 seasons so far) - Must watch and get involved with every character on a personal level! - this show is a masterpierce!!

The Walking Dead (7 seasons so far) - don’t let yourself be stopped by the “gory” side of the show, the characters are fucking everything!

Fear The Walking Dead (3 seasons so far) - spin off to The Walking Dead, all you need to know is Alycia Debnam-Carey.

Shameless - US (7 seasons so far) - Brilliant acting, fucking hilarious and dramatic at the same time

Game of Thrones (6 seasons so far, 7th coming out next month) - just watch it.

Gilmore Girls (8 seasons so far) - I can’t believe this show is back in this category but there it is! Fucking hilarious, genius writing (except for the new season I won’t lie), I’ll recommend that show until the day I die.

Orphan Black (5 seasons, the last one started airing last week) - you won’t regret getting into this crazy show, mainly because of the pure talent that is Tatiana Maslany and also hot french lesbians and crazy science girlfriends.

Stranger Things (1 season so far) - incredible show, it’s Stand By Me meets IT - if you haven’t seen those movies go watch them too 😂

Grey’s Anatomy (13 seasons so far) - good luck.

Wentworth (5 seasons so far) - women in prison, only a lot more dramatic that oitnb, but with characters just as amazing, also lesbians 😋

👇 Those two aren’t together👇  #ballieandfridgetforever

This is US (1 season so far) - really really great show 

13 Reasons Why (1 season so far) - all you need to know is Katherine Langford 😍😍😍  #langbellorises


Finished or brutally canceled shows 😭

Sense8 (2 seasons) - I fucking hate that this masterpiece is now in this category 😭😭💔   just watch it, it’s amazing 

Skins UK (6 seasons + 3 movies) - that tv show made me feel better in very dark times - brilliant acting, not always so brilliant storyline but we forgive them.

The L Word (6 seasons) - lesbians, lesbians and lesbians, amazing.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (7 seasons) - hot slayer, demons, the scooby gang, witch girlfriends, what more could you possibly need…

Parks and Recreation (7 seasons) - just fucking hilarious, after it you’ll only want to vote for Leslie Knope for president.

Friends (10 seasons) - my bet is you heard about that one, maybe watched it already, you should go watch it again 😊

The Office (9 seasons) - hilarious, I love it so much 

How I Met Your Mother (9 seasons) - you do find out how he met her eventually 😂  Great show

The O.C (4 seasons) - gotta put it in there, one of the very first shows I watched religiously (it ruined a summer vacation with my family when I was 12 😂 )

One Tree Hill (9 seasons) - another one of my very first tv shows, my attraction to Peyton Sawyer should’ve been a huge red flag to my sexuality back then 😂

Glee (6 seasons) - I hesitated to put it in here because it became fucking bullshit after season 3 #fuckyouryanmurphy, but I was indeed a huge fan of the first 3 seasons #faberryforever so here it is 

Obviously there’s a LOT more tv shows that I’ve watched, like a 100 more, so if you want more suggestions get back to me 😊  Enjoy!

PETER PARKER is SPIDER-MAN

Fate gave me some terrific superpowers, and I realize now that it’s my duty to use them… without doubt… without hesitation! And that means Spider-Man is going into action again! I’ll fight as I’ve never fought before! Nothing will stop me now! For I know at last that a man can’t change his destiny… and I was born to be… Spider-Man!   - PETER PARKER

Posting this video again cuz Worth it!!

The first time I watched this movie, I thought of Camren when I heard the part of “the universe is rooting for us” and also for the relationship so lovely and genuine between them. After watching the movie, I was really interested to know who the mind behind those ideas was. My curiosity and admiration for that work made me explore Braxie’s channel a little more and then I understood better where the idea came from and how it was done. Then I also saw a video of Zoe (who does Ellie in the movie) explaining how it was done and also giving a general idea of how it was recorded. After learning more about the story of the movie, I wanted to watch it again, but now with my eyes really open to the story being told. I fell in love with the movie again, and this time without comparing with any other couple. I had to look for the director of the movie and tell her how much I enjoyed her story and all her art, cuz she besides directing the film, writing, recording, editing, is also a singer/songwriter. Anyway, to summarize, Braxie is pure art and I really enjoyed seeing such a young girl producing all that content.

Braxie (@thisismynotnormallife ), I can only wish you all the luck in the world with your movie, with your music and your art. I hope you never stop producing content cuz the world needs it, more art made with passion. Your soul is beautiful! You are made of art! I can feel that! Oh… And tell Zoe, Alex and all your friends that they are amazing for doing this with you.

Guys, it’s worth watching the movie, listening to the soundtrack, listening to Braxie’s own songs and enjoying her art. For those who have been waiting, the movie now also has subtitles in Portuguese and Spanish.

Enjoy Warmish!

Writing a book in 5 steps

Do you feel stuck? Has procrastination stopped you from achieving greatness? Are you unable to focus on writing for some reason? Worry no more. With this post I’ll help you transform a story idea into a whole book in a few months.

Get ready! It’s time to shine!

Step 1: Set a schedule and a deadline

Even if you have no deadlines to meet, create one. Don’t EVER write without a deadline. Having no deadline gives you no sense of obligation. Deadline is commitment. So, what day is today? Give yourself three months to finish the first draft. You can do it. 
Also, create a writing schedule. At what time of the day do you feel most focused? Find the best time and a good amount of hours for writing. Write everyday.

Step 2: Choose the story idea

You have a schedule and a deadline, now you need a story idea. If you already have one, go to step 3. If not, here’s an exercise to help you find an exciting new story idea.

Create 10 book titles, just 10 random titles you can think of.

For every title, create two possible stories. You’ll have 20 story ideas to choose from. Pick your favorite. Don’t worry too much about finding the perfect one, perfection doesn’t exist. Development is much more important than finding the “right“ idea.

When you are ready, let’s move to step 3.

Step 3: Bones

In step 3 we will develop your idea into a full-length story. Let’s start by answering the most important question:

How does your story ends?

If you know how the story begins and how it ends, you can come up with a few basic scenes that MUST happen for the story to go from point A (begin) to point B (end). Don’t worry about details, just outline important events from A to B.

Now you have the structure of the story, or the bones.

Step 4: Development

Now it’s time to give life to ideas. Nothing gives more intensity to ideas than visualization, because if you picture something in your mind, it starts to exist. So, visualize yourself meeting with your protagonist (and other characters as well). Talk to them, ask them questions, imagine their appearance, manners and clothing. Imagine yourself visiting your protagonist’s house. Imagine yourself talking to your antagonist too, ask them questions. Imagine yourself walking around the fictional world, take imaginary photos.

Imagine yourself as the main character. See what they see, feel what they feel, fear what they fear. Imagine their story as if it was happening to you. Imagine some of you protagonist’s memories.

You can also imagine the story as a trailer, or as a full movie. You can imagine it as a finalized book and the cover art. You can imagine random people reading it, or asking for your autograph. Really, you can imagine anything.

Be a daydreamer. :D

Step 5: Writing

The right moment to start writing is when you know how the first scene should go. You don’t need to have a clear planning of everything. If you know the first scene, you have enough.

For the writing process, I have a few advises: 

- Stop watching music videos for a while, they will shift your attention.

- Don’t open thesaurus, save that for editing.

- Write the first word that comes to mind, don’t try to be fancy, be practical.

- If you have problem with confidence and anxiety, imagine that someone else is writing the book and you are just watching from a safe distance.

- Don’t try to write the perfect first paragraph, you’ll probably change it later.

- Write as much as you can and as fast as you can, the first draft will be terrible, but no one will ever read it. So write with the flow.

- As you write, scenes will look longer compared to when you read them. That’s completely normal. When editing comes you’ll be able to fill the gaps.

- Follow your instinct, if you feel that something is wrong… something is probably wrong.

Jeff, you helped me learn something about film making today that I think we all need to apply to life. It’s okay to plan some stuff, and it’s okay to figure out what we did wrong. But our plans are randomly going to fall apart and our lessons are randomly gonna be wrong. And if we just keep the cameras rolling and shoot a lot of crap eventually Annie is going to reach down her shirt and pull out a laser bomb. I didn’t write that, we didn’t plan that. God made that happen. God made this movie, and it’s dumb. And we’re dumb for being in it. Life is a big dumb, pointless movie with no story and an abrupt ending where the hero gets shot by Dracula in the middle of a lunch order during an outtake. But somewhere in there, every once in a while. (Annie reaches down her shirt) So we keep the cameras rolling, and we edit out the parts we don’t like, and we stop thinking about Chris Pratt so much because it is not healthy.

Glasses

Joe blushed as he felt her eyes on him again, and he glanced over at her just as she turned her stare back to the TV, trying to act as if she wasn’t staring at him.

He shifted in his seat, adjusting the glasses on his face before turning his attention back on the computer screen in front of him, the half edited video staring up at him.


A few minutes passed when he got the feeling again, and this time their eyes met.

“Why are you staring at me?” Joe blurted out, suddenly desperate to know what was going on.

Y/N shook her head, a smile on her lips, but she didn’t respond as she looked back at the TV.

“Come on, Y/N. I’m your best friend, you have a responsibility to tell me if I look weird or stupid.”

This wasn’t the first time he had caught her staring at him in the past few days, and for the most part Joe had let it slide. Y/N was his best friend, he figured if there was a reason she would tell him. Except she still hadn’t. And it was nerve wracking having her stare at him so much, he was worried she had figured out his real feelings.

“You don’t look stupid.” Her words drew him out of his thoughts, and he blinked at her. “Or weird.” She smiled at him. “Now, go back to editing. You need to finish it.”

Sighing, Joe mentally agreed with her before turning back to his computer screen, continuing to edit. Until he felt her staring again.

“Y/N,” He said, without turning to look at her. “I think I deserve to know why you are staring.”

“I’m not staring.”

“Don’t lie.”

“I’m not.”

With a groan of frustration, Joe continued to edit as Y/N went back to watching her movie.


“Y/N!” Joe exclaimed, closing his laptop and turning to face her on the couch.

“Joe!” She replied, a small smile on her lips.

“Will you PLEASE stop staring!” He crossed his arms, a small pout on his face. “Or at least tell me why.”

“Because of your glasses.” She blurted out, surprising Joe.

“My…glasses?” His hand instinctively reached up to adjust them. “What about them?” He asked, suddenly feeling self conscious about wearing them.

“Nothing,” He watched as she shifted closer, her own hand reaching up to shift them, before brushing a piece of hair away from his eyes. “You just look really attractive in them, that’s all.”

Joe felt his face grow warm, first at her touch and then at her words.

“Is that why you’ve been staring?” The movie faded in to the background, forgotten by the two sat on the couch. Y/N bit her lip before nodding slightly.

“Yeah, sorry. I just…I know you’ve worn them before, but not for this long. And, well…” She shook her head, an embarrassed look on her face. “I really like you in glasses.”

“You like me, huh?” Joe felt a smile grow on his face as he teased her, but his heart was racing. Y/N may like him back.

“Oh piss off, all I said was I like you in glasses.” Y/N rolled her eyes, but her eyes held a scared look, and Joe realized that she felt the same way as him. Scared that one would reject the other.

“Hmm, now I don’t think that’s the only thing you said.” Joe reached out a hand, his fingers playing with hers. “I think you also said, you think I’m attractive in my glasses. Which means you fancy me.” He leaned his face closer to hers, their eyes locked on to one another. “Which is good, because I fancy you too.”

Y/N opened her mouth to say something, but Joe silenced her with a kiss, suddenly feeling bold.

“Well,” Y/N smiled softly at Joe as they pulled apart. “Maybe I should have started staring at you ages ago.”

“Hm, maybe.” Joe chuckled, leaning in to kiss her again.

I had a brilliant idea earlier...

Instead of dragging Maximum Ride through production heck trying to turn it into a movie, go the (slightly) easier route and turn it into a TV series! It would work so well as a TV show. Pass it on, tweet it, get it to the higher ups. This needs to happen! EDIT: MR is getting a webseries. Saw it on Facebook. Google for more info!! Edit: People, you’re awesome, but this is my most reblogged/liked post. the post has been around for a year. So…maybe stop reblogging  it for my sanity, please? Edit: I see my plea has not been acknowleged, so I’m convinced you people must just be liking it to annoy me. I would delete it, but I’m curious if it’ll ever get to 1K likes/rb’s. Guess I’ll continue to be annoyed and driven crazy then. 

“I’m five foot five and broad-shouldered and have a short waist. I’ve had movie [producers] tell me I need to wear push-pu bras or that I don’t have a pronounced enough jaw. When I was younger, I really took it to heart. But one day my mom said, ‘Chloë, you’ve gotta stop picking your body apart because that’s what makes you beautiful, that’s what makes you my daughter’. I realized she was right. I don’t want to be a clone of everyone else. I like being me.”

Self-Policing in the Nerd Community

Here’s the thing: it’s time to cast off the old school nerd.

I’m not talking about the trekkie or the Stan-Stan or long scarf Doctor.

I mean the trolling, girl-hating, harrassing, slut shaming, offensive shirt wearing, mine mine mine fanboys.

The new world of geek culture is here. There are now a dozen successful and high quality comic book movies. There are tons of great, intelligent, and revolutionary sci-fi/fantasy/superhero shows on. We have access to the sort of video games and online content that we’ve always dreamed of.

And you know how that happend? Women.

Men of nerd culture have been showing up for cancelled shows and whining about abandoned comic plotlines for decades and women have always been a part of that group. Until recently, it’s been a very small part of the group. Now, women make up 40 some percent of Marvel Comics audience. They turn out in droves for conventions and movies and Free Comic Book Day. I have had half hour long conversation with moms about how they got into comics and how they are trying to get their kids into comics at my convention table. Women write, draw, and edit several of the best comic books, novels, tv shows, and movies in the community. Women have made this community marginally more amazing.

And so far, we’ve rewarded them for it with harrassment, death threats, rape threats, and general trolling.

It needs to stop.

And women have been working day and night to expose it and put an end to it. But as long as there is implicit permission for these men to exist and act this way inside the community it will not stop. We need to turn the tables.

It is the responsibility of every person within the community from the superstars to the fanboys to make these people unwelcome. They need to be thrown out of conventions. They need to be unwelcome in stores. They need to be shouted down and pointed out on the internet. They need to be banned from boards and panels. They need to know there is no place for them here.

If they want to clean up their act and act like decent human beings, then they’re welcome back. We welcome everyone except those who make others feel unwelcome. This doesn’t just stop at women. Trans men and women need to be respected within the community. LGBTQ people need to be allowed to have their voices heard and to have representation within the community. Everybody means everybody.

If you see or hear something and you are physically able to, you need to confront the person. If you can’t do this or can’t do it without putting yourself in danger, you need to alert con organizers. If you are running a con or a show or a shop, you need to let people know that this behavior is unacceptable. If it means putting up a sign - do it. If it means shutting somebody down in the middle of a rant - do it. If it means you lose a few dollars on a dude’s pull box - so be it, it will make things better for you in the long run.

People underestimate the number of women and decent dudes that are driven off by the bs that is allowed to exist within the comics community especially. You want people to buy at brick and mortar instead of digital - make your shop a place people want to be.

This place that we’ve created, a lot of us because we were outcasts or had no other places we felt comfortable, should be a place that’s safe for everyone.

BECHLOE INTERVIEW!!

There’s a huge fanbase surrounding Beca and Chloe from Pitch Perfect as a couple.

KENDRICK: Yes. I love it, I love it!

What are your thoughts on that?

KENDRICK: I love it! I couldn’t be more excited about it. In the first movie when we were doing the scenes I was like, ‘This is entering sketchy town and I love it, that’s where I live, that’s my home, is in sketchy town’ Then we just kind of leaned into it and in the second one—I don’t know, it’s a weird combination in the second one where there’s moments where you’re like, ‘Oh, come on! That’s a perfect opportunity for a BeChloe moment’ and then there’s stuff where like, ‘Oh, that’s gonna blow those chicks’ minds’ Because some chick are really into it and I’m like, ‘Dope! I love it!’ the fanfiction and all of it.

Are you reading the fanfiction?

KENDRICK: I’m not gonna lie to you, I tried to read one fanfiction because I was like, ‘I have to know’ and I was… maybe I chose the wrong fanfiction to read, but it was so slow. I was expecting it to be like, ‘Oh my God! I can’t believe they’re writing this crazy shit about me and Brittany [Snow]’ but there was a lot of exposition and I was like, ‘This isn’t a [Charles] Dickens novel’ so I gave up on it after that. It’s probably for the best, I probably shouldn’t be reading that.

So basically fans should know that they need to tweet you the ones with the heavy sex, the ones that go really fast, that jump into it.

KENDRICK: Your words, not mine!

Right, just…

KENDRICK: What are you doing to me, what are you doing? Well, it’s weird because in this one there’s also the weird thing where I can’t stop complimenting the commissar, but then the way they edited some of the stuff with Hailee [Steinfeld] I was like, ‘Dude, why does it look like I wanna bone this chick?’ We filmed a perfectly normal scene—unlike the Beca and Chloe scenes in the first movie which were always borderline—Hailee and I filmed this perfectly normal scene and they cut it together with these lingering looks and I was like, ‘Why does it look like I wanna bone this chick?’ First of all, we already got my potential lesbian storyline with Chloe so I feel disloyal, and secondly, Hailee is 17! So I’m a creep.

I turn back to face Christian. We are four feet apart. He steps forward, and instinctively I step back. He stops, and the anguish in his expression is palpable, his gray eyes burning.

“I don’t want you to go,” he murmurs, his voice full of longing.

“I can’t stay. I know what I want and you can’t give it to me, and I can’t give you what you need.”
