PostSubject: Writing a simstory scenario?   Thu 26 Aug 2010, 2:08 pm

I was thinking that it could be fun to write out a short story as a movie scenario and have others create the screen shots that go with the story... It could be a fun challenge.... To see the differences in how you would interpreted the same story.

It has been done the other way around... create a story around some screenshots (That's how I usually do my sim stories)
Anyone like the idea?

I actually thought of this after reading that wonderful short story that Senja wrote (Prelude)

That's a good idea Fred! Yes, the other way around is happening all of the time because that's the offer EA gives the simmers. For millions of people the same screenies..... Smile

I started to use the screenies and build the story up around them but nowadays, I write the stories and afterwards play a bit with the sims to look for the fitting shots. That means that now and again something unexpected happens in the game and that I do change the story a bit to be able to use the unexpected events as well.
I think it would be fun to see how we all react to a same story. Let's see what others think about that. Very Happy

Yes, an interesting idea, Fred.

I write all my scripts first and only once in a while change it up for events in game, with the exception of 'outtake' type shots of course. It would be amusing to see how numerous writers interpret the same material jocolor
