• Unofficial Pony Screenplays for Episodes One and Two

    Some crazy brony named Louis took the first 2 episodes and turned them into screenplays, including pretty much every single detail of the show.  Both of them look like they could have come from Lauren Faust herself!  I'm sure the film students out there will find something interesting here.  You can check out both episodes below in PDF google docs form.

    10. A quick screenwriting lesson. Don't include camera directions. Take out all the JUMP CUT TO: or CUT TO: between every dialogue portion. it's not necessary and will make your screenplays shorter

      Potential spin-off ideas:
      -Snips & Snails: Private Eyes
      -Everypony Loves Rainbow
      -At Home With Spike
      -Pinkie, You Shrunk The Kids!
      -The Life of Luna
      -Where Are They Now: Photo Finish edition
      -PTV (Pony Televesion) Cribs: Canterlot Castle
      -The Sparkle Family

      Also, I liked the line "Being winged, Dash and Fluttershy are okay. The other four FALL DOWN THE MOUNTAINSIDE, SCREAMING."

    24. There's this popular conceit by professional filmmakers that:

      1 page of script = 1 minute of screentime.

      When I wrote these screenplays, I took great pains to write ONLY what a production team NEEDED to know; very basic, straightforward, clear-cut minimal stage directions.

      And still, these 22-minute episodes translated to 36-page scripts.

      I wonder if Lauren Faust had a problem with this?

      Maybe adjust the margins? 1 inch all around 'cause it looks like you've got extra on the left-hand side of the page.

      Just going to tell you peoples that I've been working on "My Little Musical" for the past month or so. Hoping to start auditioning process for the voiceover artists soon.

      As for this screenplay adaptation, I agree with anon way up there. There's way too much description for a screenplay, and the camera descriptions and inclusions of words such as "we" and "us" is unnecessary. Still; cool to see that someponies are doing things like this!

    27. Here's a real script from Foster's for comparison: http://www.cmsquared.net/Resources/AffairWeather2ndDraft.pdf

    28. I'd like to offer a special word of thanks to the guy who linked the Foster's script.

      You've just helped me out more than you know.
