They say when in Rome, but we are not in Rome. We are here on the Hive Blockchain. And when on the Hive Blockchain, everything that has to do with Hive is part of everyone's business.
The feature-length film we are making for Hive is not an exception. We work closely with Community members and we are glad to inform you that a good number of the reviewers of the first draft of the script are 'impressed with how things are looking so far.
Please do us a favour and show them lots of love on both posts.
Key Notes From @basilmarples's Review
1. Basil is impressed.
Those that witnessed the event that transpired during the birth of Hive can agree to the fact that there are different facets to it, that can be explored to make an interesting story.
Basil expressed his excitement with how the key story threads of what transpired were weaved together to come up with the script. According to him, this creates plenty of room for laughs, drama, tech jargon, and crypto politics.
You will easily lose count of the number of times he mentioned 'humour' in his review. I bet that sends a strong message.
2. There's a long way to go from here.
While Basil is full of praise for the first draft of the script so far, he was also keen to draw a line on the aspect of the script he feels needs to be adjusted.
He highlighted the way the script explored the basic concepts of crypto blogging and offered insight into how uncomfortable he feels about it. In addition to this, he left tips that he feels can be explored to give the story a more captivating narrative.
3. Basil wants more.
Tell me you are not surprised. Who wouldn't want more after being let in on the first draft of Hive's very own feature film script?
According to Basil;
It isn't a full script yet (80 pages so far!) so I was left biting my nails when the story was cut short... I can't wait to read the next instalment
That says it all.
Key Notes From @shadowspub's Review
1. There were bound to be challenges.
Firstly, the tech side of Hive is an important aspect of any story that will be told about Hive. Will this story be relatable to a non-tech viewer?
Secondly, Hive operates in the virtual world. Will it be possible to present a script where most of the action will take place on computers?
To crown it all, we have the ninjamine issue which is 'crucial to the story. Can that be presented in a relatable way?
These were the challenges envisaged by Shadows before exploring the script.
2. Her impression of how these challenges were handled.
Accordingly to Shadows, 'the scriptwriter has managed to overcome these challenges.
It feels good to hear that, right? She backed it up by highlighting that viewers will be aware that Hive is nothing like the average social media, without being overloaded with the tech side of the blockchain.
She likes how the issue of the ninjamine and the on-screen actions were captured in the script and she lauds the effort of the scriptwriter for overcoming these challenges.
3. Shadows is liking the flow of the story.
It is the partial script of the Hive film and shadows is looking forward to seeing the larger picture when the next part of a draft of the script is in place.
She also highlighted an aspect of the story that could use some refining, but her overall impression of the part of the script that has been released is positive.
