Why Today is Notable
Did you know that on this day, December 17 in 1903 that two brothers known as “Wright” were the first ever to fly in an airplane? What does this have to do with making Documysteries? It is yet another influence that makers of documysteries can have for their work: planes. Whole movies have featured documysteries that occur on the form of transportation. Sometimes in the documystery something scary happens onboard and now it is a fight against time to try to make things (pardon the pun) Wright (sorry).
Airplanes Can Make Shooting DocuMysteries Easier
The terrific thing about shooting a movie on a plane of course is that it is like the “House Movie” where all the action takes place in one area. This makes the shooting of the DocuMystery a lot easier because the crew and actors don’t have to move from location to location or even studio set to studio set.
If You are at the Beginning of Developing a DocuMystery Here is a Possible Option
Are you working on developing a DocyMystery? If so we would love to hear about it. We know that all across the United States of America that innovators are working on pet projects, some of which come to fruition and some that do not. For those of you who are thinking of making a DocuMystery but have no idea where to start, a possible suggestion is to write it as a novel first. That way you don’t have to worry about pulling actors and a crew together. As my late mentor once said “All you need to write is a pen and a piece of paper.” And while you are writing the screenplay version you can even promote and sell your novel on Amazon!
