Exxagerated scripts

I recently took part in a class on scriptwriting in which we were told: “Exaggerate emotions! Go wild, make things plain & obvious! Put things in your face! Things should go wild and explode!”.

Recently-er still, I also saw some movies directed by Hayao Miyazaki. And the perspective changed. Sure, you can make things with powerful emotions and lots of action, and explosions, and ka-boom!, but you can also make them soft, and sweet, and kind, and nice, with real-life emotions, which sometimes may be not-as-aggressive as movies tend to portray.

Thus, I’m at peace in making scripts that don’t go over the board with emotions.

I used to think that you need to have a lot of emotions, even exaggerate a bit. Now I know there’s a different possible solution.

— Şi ele mie!…

(- Do you like girls? – Yes! – But do they like you back? – I also like them!)

There’s a thing about liking others, which I want to talk about in this article.

Göran Johansson - Different attitudes

There’s a quote in “Whisper of the Heart” (1995) / “Mimi wo sumaseba” (1995) which I like:

“All right, Shizuku, go ahead and do what your heart tells you. But it’s never easy when you do things differently from everyone else. If things don’t go well, you’ll only have yourself to blame.”

Thoughts on it?
