|WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SUBMIT A PAYMENT:
- you will receive a receipt from PayPal via email
- in that receipt, in the"item ID" box, there is a web-address which
you will need to copy-paste into your internet browser's address box.
This will take you to a DropBox file for the appropriate drama.
- download all documents from that file into your computer.
(Everything is secure and easy to use.
you do NOT need to have an account with either PayPal or DropBox)
This is instead of making a donation towards specific long-form dramas.
(If a director’s package exists, the "buy now" button will be found
on the individual script itself. LINK TO COMPLETE DRAMA LIST.)
Director's packages provide several benefits explained below.
Included is the director's package (on Excel),
a director's script (on Word), a script in regular format (on Word),
plus all the recommended sheet music (on a pdf).
NOTE: the only method of payment is via PAYPAL (which is secure).
(In case you accidentally make 2 payments for the same script,
payments can be reimbursed within 60 days of the request.)
For questions regarding rights & permission, refer to this link.)
If there are any issues in accessing the documents,
or in case there was a mistake in the email address, etc.,
please send a follow-up email to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
letting me know the date and which script you purchased.
DO NOT PAY AGAIN!
NOTE: the only method of communication is by email.
. DIRECTOR’S PACKAGE – THE BENEFITS - WHAT IT IS AND HOW TO USE IT
. (see photo examples below)
Save all three documents to your computer. Do a “save as” to keep master copies of these safe.
[Save the Excel director’s package as “Excel 97-2003 Workbook”. (A box will pop up warning you
of “minor loss of fidelity” – always click “continue” in order to maintain its format.)]
. WHAT IS A DIRECTOR’S SCRIPT AND HOW IS IT USEFUL:
It is most useful for director/s and technical people, so they can see everything happening
at a given time. If desired, one can insert layouts or diagrams.
It is also useful for the entire cast, as they can see their uninterrupted dialogue/lines
without directions in the way. And when the director asks people to pick up
at a certain point in the script, all they have to do is give the line number.
(The director’s script will be on both Word and Excel. I recommend you use
the Word document for printing off, and for inserting your LIGHTING and SOUND cues,
as well as any song lyrics you need. I will also attach the script on Word
in its regular format in case you need this for any reason.)
. ALSO INCLUDED, BESIDES THE DIRECTOR’S SCRIPT:
. (FYI: TABS are found at bottom of the excel-document. - SEE EXAMPLES BELOW.)
- a tab/page with TO-DO SCHEDULE LIST
- a tab/page with COMPREHENSIVE CAST LIST, which you can print off and use during auditions.
Before printing, you can insert rows in necessary places if you have created more roles
to accommodate more actors by reassigning or splitting up dialogue or narrations,
or if you have assigned specific song portions to accommodate soloists, duets, etc.
- a tab/page with COSTUME LIST
- extra tabs with SET, etc. for more complicated productions
- a tab/page with PROPS & MUSIC LIST (to find, make or purchase) which will keep you organized.
When searching for music, decide if you are going to use live accompaniment or use
performance tracks. Then search online by typing in the song title followed by either
“performance track”, the word “karaoke”, or "sheet music".
- AN ORGANIZATION TIP:
When a prop list involves more than one person, create a page in Google Docs (which is free),
then copy-paste the prop “chart” portion into that and manage from there.
This can be accessed and edited by only those you allow, thus alleviating the need for
constant update-meetings. By logging in – you can see their ideas and progress.
