I am currently considering whether the script break down of an online serialized version of a feature script should be broken into 6 fifteen-minute segments instead of 3 half-hour segments.
I'm partly annoyed, partly relieved by this notion. From the point-of-view of trying to write it that way, I'm, well, relieved and annoyed. Once I'm writing that'll become clearer.
I think fifteen-minutes may be a kind of ultimate maximum for Internet segments. Mind you, I think they'll never really catch on until they can surpass that, but I've never finished watching Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog, and I was actually enjoying it quite a bit. Does it make sense to assume others are more patient than me? Perhaps a few. Does it make sense to assume others are more interested in new forms of drama? Not in numbers worth discussing.
So, I'll try the 6 fifteen-minute bits that add up to one big story. From there, I'll see how I like it any which way.
