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?


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

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.

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

@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.


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.


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 …)
