Ok... the sun shouldn't be too hard to find these days in sunny Lisbon.

Now, can you pack a sun-related social-, inter-personal, and personal conflict in less than 4 minutes?

Best,

Hugo

Sun (noun.) - a star that is the basis of the solar system and that sustains life on Earth, being the source of heat and light. It has a mean distance from Earth of about 93 million miles, a diameter of approximately 864,000 miles and a mass 333,000 times that of Earth. It contains 99.85% of the mass in the solar system.

What a whopper of a topic. Sun Bloody Sun.

Sorry Joey,

I didn't mean for my response to be a conjecture of the simplicity of the topic.

I was meaning for quite the opposite. It's such a general theme that it's difficult to narrow down on ideas. Like any assignments, it's often times when we're under the must constraints that creativity works the most (best?) to compensate.

Sun Bloody Sun was meant to be a pun for the abbreviation for John Schlesinger's 1971 film.

Question

Question Dylan:

Does the story have to be soley written by me, or could it be written with someone else?

Joey, pending a more erudite answer from Dylan, I think it is fair to say as a general matter that you must have the rights to whatever screenplay you use in a production. If you're collaborating with someone and they did most of the writing, I'd expect that would be fine, just as you can have any number of actors. They're part of your productio team. However, if you were surfing the net and found the perfect screenplay, but it belongs to someone else, then that's no different than using music you don't have the rights to.

Ya definitely.

It was a friend of mine who gave me a very good idea (IMHO) and I would like to further write it.

He would obviously get a writers credit too!

Are we not allowed to use copyrighted music, even for these little films?!

Exactly, if you don't own the copyright or have the rights to use the copyright, you can't use it.
