While the director is to distracted because of his personal issues, the movie turns out to be made by the boarders. Everyone is trying to add something of his own. Ernie wrecks down a neighbor's house to make a good shot. Smile

This episode seems to be getting really complicated.

What if his true intent was to get back at phil for kicking him out of the bording house by making look bad on camera?

Agreed. I think we should only focus on two plots: a main plot and a sub-plot. Even three seems like too many.

It should be simple: Dustin Wannabe (curse you, coloredskies! tongue ) is a successful Hollywood actor (and ex-boarder) that wants to use Sunset Arms as the horror setting for his directing debut. Phil is suspicious and reluctant, but gets pressured by the boarders to agree. Word gets out about the Hillwood star sighting and suddenly everyone wants to be involved in the film, particularly Big Bob, who sees it as ideal opportunity for product placement. As an ulterior motive to sabotage the movie, Phil teams up wth Big Bob and forces D.W. to let him advertise in the movie or he'll refuse to let it be filmed in the boarding house.

---

On a personal note, I'm a bit reluctant to the whole Helga/Arnold scene idea if the movie is a horror film; it just doesn't mesh right. I could only see that working if there was a running gag where D.W. didn't quite know what genre/age demographic he was gunning for, so he rips off every genre in his film.

On ANOTHER side note, I think this would be a GREAT opportunity for a Lola (that model Ernie was obsessed with) cameo. She doesn't have to interact with Ernie or even speak - I'd just like to see her maybe in the background.

I just saw a clip from that episode a few minutes ago and I was thinking the EXACT same thing.

I'm liking the idea of simplifying things into two plots, but I'm kind of confused about what happens with the sup-plot (Phil and Bob teaming up). This is how I picture the episode so far:

D.W. makes his pitch to Phil --> Phil refuses, but the boarders convince him to let D.W. film --> Bob and Phil team up --> Phil gives D.W. the ultimatum about Bob's product placement --> ???

So, what should happen after that?

Then maybe, as per some arbitrary contract, Phil gives Big Bob free rein with the advertising, but Big Bob takes things way too far (perhaps to the point where key scenes in the movie are changed to involve Big Bob's Beepers products):

Actor 1: Oh no! How will we ever escape this dark, foreboding, haunted mansion?

Actor: Don't worry - thanks to my fully loaded video camera phone we can traverse these corridors with the greatest of ease. Only at Big Bob's Beepers!

D.W.: CUT!!

acemcjace169 had mentioned that Arnold should intervene and at some point try to talk to sense into Grandpa. So then Phil could put his grudge against D.W. behind him and give Big Bob the boot so the movie could continue normally.

I like it! and Arnold should definitely try to talk some sense into Grandpa.

Now I think we need to come up with a better title than "Grandpa's Famous Enemy".

lol, I like the Hillywood title. I could see it being the title of a HA! episode more than the other two.

Would you like to write/co-write it, shameonpretzel?

Ok, cool.

Do you prefer to work alone when you write or would you like someone to co-write it with you?

It doesn't matter to me. I don't mind working with another member, but I'd also have no problem flying solo.

Just a few questions: How much time is given is to compose a script? And when writing a script, is it necessary to include specific details on how everything lays out in comic panels (I ask because I'm not used to adapting dialogue and actions to panels, so I may need help in that regard)?

Well, the first thing to do would be to write a detailed outline or a draft script. Basically, the time-frame for this is unlimited because it's something you can write before you submit an episode for approval.

Once the episode is approved, you'll want to try to get the final script and thumbnails done within 2 weeks.

Thumbnail artists can help you out with adapting the script into a comic layout, and many of the people who volunteered for thumbnails have also volunteered as script writers.

Is there anyone else who would be interested in working on this project as a script writer or thumbnail artist?

Actually, we don't need to discuss the thumbnail artists yet. That ad can be placed in the want ad section once the draft script is done. But, any other script writers?
