this line was not scripted

disizletzi  asked:

Can I just say, I work in the movie industry, and it's actually impossible to understand what the f is happening when you're making a series. For the show I worked on we shot three ep at once on a period of 6 weeks for 3 eps (on a ten eps season), but even if, I think, spn shoots an ep per week, I'm pretty sure they're in the same boat. Eps get rewritten constantly, including during filming, one day you shoot scene number 2 for two hours then you cut to scene number 40 and the next day (1)

You’re shooting scene number 12, etc. It’s hard for everyone, including actors, to understand the show as you’re making it, which is why I think Jensen is not in the best place to see what we, viewers who watch the eps so many times we know them by heart, see. Some actors don’t even read the full scripts, just their lines. So, I guess what I want to say is I appreciate how you took the time to be calm and resonnable about all this, and explain this to people! Thank you!! (2/2)

Exactly! THIS! Thank you for giving us your insight into the process here.

Yeah, tv shows and movies are shot entirely out of order. Yeah, they’ve got the full script (which they probably read in order the first time it was put into their hands), but from the day filming begins until they’ve called the final cut, they live that script as a shuffled and largely incoherent jumble of scenes.

And then they get a day or two off, only to turn around and start the process all over again.

Is it any wonder that they have no real idea what the finished product is going to look like?

Supernatural shoots in a nine day cycle (not including weekends and holidays). Every ninth day of shooting, the whole process begins anew. Week after week after week.

Jared, Jensen, and Misha have ALL said that they don’t always watch the finished product. Yes, sometimes they livetweet episodes. Some episodes get special treatment and they have viewing parties (such as season finales, the 200th episode, etc.). Some episodes are just SO well known that all the actors are familiar with the finished product version (like The French Mistake). And then Jensen and Misha have both directed episodes themselves, and surely we expect their job continued through to inspecting the final product before it aired. And then there are several episodes every season that they record a commentary track for on the DVD’s.

They’re not entirely unfamiliar with the result of their work, but they’re not entrenched in the finished product the way we are, observing it from the outside, after the fact.

I can only imagine that scenes we only remember for the dialogue or the characters on-screen actions, they remember very differently.

At one recent con Jensen was telling a story about how he accidentally set his hand on fire throwing something in a trash can. It turned out to be a scene from 12.08, where Kelly ignited a bible with her touch, and then Cas tossed the flaming book into the trash can Dean was holding. Dean then poured a pitcher of water over it to extinguish the flames. It was a much talked-about scene. But the entirety of Jensen’s ability to comment on it revolved around the fact that he was trying not to lose it because HIS HAND WAS FREAKING ON FIRE!!!

He didn’t even recall what episode the scene was in, or what was happening in the story. Just the fire.

So… yeah. Sometimes it’s hard for us to remember how differently the entire experience of the show is for the actors living in that weird microcosm of creating it, versus what we experience out here in the world, deconstructing it as a finished product and a linear narrative.

Thank you! :)

“Sergeant James Barnes 32557038.”

okay so this post is wrong but what the heck it’s a Tumblr post, right, it’s mostly a joke, only it’s so perfectly echoing an idea I’ve seen elsewhere too, from actual paid critics and academic critiques, that Hugo “wasn’t writing for emotional teenagers”, that he’d be horrified by fandom, that he was too High and Erudite for the likes of  screaming theater kids and emotional teenagers

y’all. Y’all. 

Victor Hugo knew what fandom was.  And he absolutely LOVED it.

“…and I was so scared that they’d made a mistake, because the script described how pretty the Princess was.  This is not what I felt myself to be.  The last line in the script was that the Princess is way down the hill and she is staggeringly beautiful.  I crossed off the ‘ly’ and ‘beautiful’ and felt this new wording more approached what I would bring to the character.” - Carrie Fisher

listen…i’m a lil emo…a little emotional….because i can’t get over how much henrik loves and cares about his character?? like he portrayed him with such care and attention to details and talent and he made a very complex character like even come to life and like, we all miss even but it’s obvious he misses him too? god knows how many hours he spent reading the script and practicing lines and studying the character and it was a big part of his life, something he was truly passionate about, for a couple of months and up until two weeks ago he, like us, had something to look forward to, watching the show and seeing how the story actually turned out on screen. he had to say goodbye to the set and the show (for now) and you can tell he loved loved the experience and!! i hope he’ll enjoy many more moments on the skam set because i love even and also because henrik deserves it

“You’re going to have to get married one day, Victor.”

Victor looked up from his dinner at the sound of his name. His mother was looking at him sternly, waiting for a reply. Victor gently put his fork down with a sigh, he knew this conversation was going to come up eventually.

“Mother I’ve told you time and time again, I’m not ready for marriage just yet. I’m waiting for the right person to come along.” Victor said in the rehearsed calm voice he tended to use around his stubborn mother.

I really enjoy coming up with designs for characters who have one or no lines of dialogue - the extras. When they pop up in a script, they’re so incidental that the character designers haven’t drawn them yet. Sometimes my drawings end up making it to modeling and then onto the screen. The design sense in Moana is on the naturalistic side of the caricature spectrum, so many of my more exaggerated and odd characters didn’t make the cut (even though the point of those sequences was to lighten up the movie).  I crammed a bunch of my favorites on this image.  Enjoy.

Say it 

Hm?

Say it 

You’re the man of my life

honestly the level of intimacy shown in this scene is so great that it’s almost too much? and you can feel it in particular when you simply listen to them say the words. you can hardly hear isak’s words, which makes them sound all the more intimate because it makes you ask yourself “am i actually supposed to hear this? am i supposed to hear those words that are whispered so quietly you can barely make out what he’s saying?” it makes you ask yourself these questions although the answer is obviously yes, because rationally you know that this is fiction, you know it’s a script and it’s a line that was written and that is meant to be heard. but still, it sounds so intimate that listening to it kind of makes you feel like you’re eavesdropping, like you’re a stranger in a room witnessing these two share a private momentbut that’s exactly what makes this show so brilliant and unique; it takes the viewer and brings them closer to the characters, and it’s a closeness that we’re not used to experience when watching characters on a screen. sure, tv shows and movies sometimes bring us close, but this close? it’s not really something i recall experiencing before

currently experimenting to see if i can use scripting and the voice lines that were present in The Passing to make Zoey and Rochelle gay for each other.

THE FACT THAT ENDVERSE!CAS WAS SCRIPTED TO SAY “THE ONLY THING WE HAVE LEFT, DEAN AND ME IS EACH OTHER” IN  5x04


THE FACT THAT DEAN WAS SCRIPTED TO SAY “PART OF ME ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT YOU’D COME BACK” IN 7x17


THE FACT THAT DEAN WAS SCRIPTED TO SAY “I LOVE YOU” TO CAS IN 8x17


THE FACT THAT I AM EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE BECAUSE THESE LINES DIDN’T MAKE IT INTO THE FINAL CUT
