Hey Dana. I was wondering if you have any plans to develop and pitch a show of your own. If you do, what advice do you have for people who want to create their own show?

I did have plans to pitch a show. And I pitched it! And Disney bought it! And now I’m developing that show! It’s difficult and exciting ESPECIALLY because I’m doing all this for the first time. I hope I can show some images someday!

If I were to give one piece of advice to past me, it’d be to get comfortable writing entertaining scripts. As a showrunner the most important thing will be The Show, and 90% of The Show comes from The Writing. It’s difficult to find writers who will 100% understand your vision but if that’s an area you’re comfortable in you’ll never be an dire straits. I had never professionally written a script before my pilot. If I did maybe that part wouldn’t have been as stressful at the time haha. 

But let’s say you’re already good there. You’re good everywhere! 

How to pitch a thing! I used to love making “pitch books” as a kid, though I had no idea that’s what I was doing. It was just fun to develop worlds and characters! So even if you’re in HS or younger, making “pitch books” is a great way to spend your time and practice for the future. So get to it! Here’s just one format you can try: 

1. Cover page with short description of show and a fun image of your main character!

2. ½-1 full page describing your main character/s! (Don’t start with exhaustive explanations about the world, or any legends, or w/e, we’re here bc we want to connect with a character).

3. A couple pages with any other important characters you may have!

4. A page describing the most important relationships between your main character/s and others!

5. Simple 1 page description on how your world works! If it’s too complicated to get on one page, SIMPLIFY! Even the most complicated ideas can be pitched in 1-2 sentences. 

6. Important places! The main characters house? The bad guy’s castle? Stuff like that. 

7. Give em a couple episode examples! That’s where your show comes together, after all. 

And you’re done!

Fill your pitch book with fun images that show off your characters and your world! You don’t have to follow this format exactly, it’s your show, your pitch, do whatever you think will show off your ideas best. If you’re making an epic you might want to dedicate a page to where you want the show to go, and how the characters will evolve. Everything depends on what you want to make. But above all: Make it interesting to read!!! Make it fun to look at!!! Boredom is your enemy, fight against it!!!!

Are my exclamation points making this easier to understand? GREAT!!!!!

Now get out there and pitch some things cause I want new shows to watch.

So Harry basically sang the soft songs off his album😢

i can’t really emphasize how much this is…. i just i really can’t articulate it. he wasn’t in much of a mood to celebrate, as he said. it wasn’t a night for dancing around and screaming to lyrics and getting hyped up. he’s heartbroken, and he’s hurting for his home and for the victims and for their families. that was a very respectful tribute, picking the softer songs and doing an acoustic set, while allowing a moment of silence for the victims. he still went on stage and performed for those fans because he knew that a lot of them traveled to see him and they paid money. and they paid money for charity, too. like, every dollar went to a local charity. that’s just - i’m really emotional because of the generosity in his heart and how kind and considerate he is. it couldn’t have been easy to get on that stage, but he did it. for charity, no less. for the fans. as a tribute to those lives lost and the families broken. with a lot of emphasis on putting love back into the world, for pleading with people just to love one another

Didn't we have some article from the Brits talking about how Louis never had to move from his seat and all the industry people came to him? Yeah. I think the music world is catching on to who is important behind the scenes. 1D is big business, and the leader of 1D is someone to know.

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

anonymous asked:

Okay, so because I am a very considerate person 😉  here is a little taste of what might actually be the reality one day…

Hey I really like your Art, I don't mean to be disrespectful but could you please not put the words or symbol "please do not repost" into your Art, it just beeaks/ruins the immersion of the Pictures especially if you paste it in every frame in a Comic thinking people are too dumb to be reminded once, I mean just think how annoying it would be if that was put in the Mona Lisa or every frame of a Marvel or DC Comic Book Page. Again I mean no disrespect, but this really annoys me and fells rude.

The watermarks are there for a reason. Art theft is inevitable and at least with the watermark, people will know where to find me and will know my policy. It’s placed in every panel because some people steal my art, crop it and upload it panel by panel. If my watermarks annoy you and you think it’s rude, look elsewhere. I do not get paid to draw. Please rid yourself of any notion that it’s okay to approach a content creator and tell them what they can and can’t do in regards to their own creations, especially when they spend their time and energy to share these creations for free.

I spent a good few days working on that MariChat comic only to get this message not long after I posted it. Don’t think that if you start off by saying “I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but…” or “No offense, but…” that your proceeding words will be okay. You essentially asked that I get rid of the watermarks that I have in place for my protection so that you could have a better experience. It doesn’t matter to you if people steal my art with no trace back to me. All that matters is your comfort. This is hardly the first instance of entitlement I’ve seen in this fandom, but it’s still appalling every time I encounter it.

No disrespect, but this really annoys me and is* rude.

Ok, so date HC: what if yuuri and victor went on a little picnic on a warm, summer evening and then when it got darker victor brought a little stereo to play some music and they just slow dance while lightning bugs are just gently glowing around them?? And they start to get giggly while slow dancing and fall into the blanket and star gaze while comparing each other to stars and beautiful things and nature??And they just lay there, all cuddly and warm and happy? (I just want them to be happy omg)

YES PLEASE
