EXT. DIALOGUE POLISH - TWILIGHT
With WALL·E rolling in with the big box office numbers this month, my phone is ringing off the hook for dialog polish work for computer-based character screenplays. Any Hollywood Reader will tell you how important dialog is to a good movie. And yes, with the release of WALL·E -- the five hundred pages of coverage they've written to that effect -- well, let's just say nobody will be arguing with them once the PDF gets pushed up onto thedailyscript.
You think I'm joking, but here's a sample polish I did for my own edification on the WALL·E script:EXT. DYSTOPIC URBAN LANDSCAPE - DAY
WALL·E AND EVA discuss WALL·E and Eva.
Now, is that a fast read or what?
To my mind, the best script of the year thus far would have to be the screenplay for Presto, the short film that airs before WALL·E. That little clip had more laughs than Get Smart and Zohan combined.
