With the impending Musk-opalypse over on birdsite, I'm accelerating my extrication from that mess. Main thing I use for that place for is the community. So I'm sending a message out into the 'verse: Any (s) out there looking to connect?

@EMStoveken

This is wonderful and I hope all the #Screenwriting people will connect (unfortunately docfilm here).

However:
I am myself writing a Fediverse software (so that you can do a movie together :) - may I ask you for a favour?
In the past days I was working on the vocabulary to define Roles and Relations in Movie making.
See redaktor.github.io/vocab/w3id. (-> 0112, search not working yet) –
unfortunately I am a german speaker and all sources are english.

So:
Is "Screenplay" the same than "Screenwriter"?
What is the difference to "Script" and "Scenario Writer".

@sl007 @EMStoveken

Do you post updates? I would really like to see such a piece of software. 😁

@Trent @EMStoveken

Yes. The whole update process is based on the concept called "chaos".
Based on the assumption that the frequent meetings with other devs will finally give us a rather _generic_ ActivityPub server with nice query capabilities.
So, the code is all for the client:
All the widgets/modules go to github.com/redaktor/widgets-pr and currently working on an github.com/redaktor/mediaproxy to get and cache every link, like media incl. all metadata and also webpages as ActivityPub markup.
Then will finish the widgets and begin to post/toot updates but at @redaktor

@sl007 Sounds like an interesting project! To answer your questions “Screenplay” is the text written by a “Screenwriter” so they are different things. “Script” is another word for “Screenplay.” “Scenario Writer” is not, to my knowledge, a commonly used term in filmmaking. “Scenario” refers to an idea for a situation, one might use scenarios in improvisation or interactive media such as a table top game, but not really film.

@EMStoveken

Ah, that helped a lot.
Got it exactly wrong :)
Will be fixed today, forgot to follow, done now :)

There is much other software based on the same protocol and I would just hope that devs. talk more to each other, we have a monthly meeting. Hope you are also aware of #peertube (for videos) …

@sl007 Glad to be of some assistance. I had not heard of but will definitely be checking it out.

@EMStoveken

cool.
You highlighted a really underlying issue.
The idea of the vocab and cool underlying skohub.io is that you can simply follow "Screenwriter" and discover others by this.
So, anything there is an `Actor` and it should really document and distinct between e.g. `Person` and Actors which are also an `Object`, like Screenplay …

PS: Always curious what the Screenwriters-Community would expect from a Content Managing Fediverse software :)
What we really need is a general Fediverse explainer video. From the Conf we made there is the video by @derek conf.tube/w/d8c8ed69-79f0-4987 and maybe we can do this without the politics (yes, everything is politics) but like for a kid in the 80s expecting A-Team to happen (well, or whatever never kids expect …)

@EMStoveken Not writing *specifically* for the screen, but my latest iteration of my eternally-ongoing project happens to take script form. Thinking about getting the old #SageAndSavant crew back together, do a #podcast, and hope I can kickstart a comic/graphic novel out of it.

@EMStoveken I am. And the very same reason as you - flying from the birdcage

@EMStoveken I've just completed my first feature length screenplay. Bouncing from the 'Bird Cage' for the same reasons.

@seawildearth Welcome and congratulations on the screenplay! What kind of stuff do you write?
