Tips for Posting Your First Idea on Greenlight Pix

Great stories make great television, but they never make it to the screen unless they're shared with others. If you're ready to take the plunge and post an idea on Greenlight Pix, the following suggestions will help you put together your first post for the community.

Basic Information

Every shared idea on Greenlight Pix must have a complete title, description, and genre that give members the information they need to rate it and comment. The best titles are catchy and memorable while capturing the essence of the idea, giving members a reason to read the description. There you give specific information about the idea.

Description

A great description offers details about the concept, the characters, and setting. Members want to know basic information about the characters, what makes them interesting, and how they contribute to the overall concept. Share information about the plot and setting so readers understand what the characters will do in each episode and where it takes place. This helps them determine how well the story elements fit together in a way that is believable and entertaining. When describing the plot, share story arcs that show how this series is different from others in the same genre. Be sure to clearly define the genre, including details like whether the show is a comedic or dramatic take on the topic.

Easy to Read

Ideally, each post should be 200-500 words long, but there are no set rules for length. Focus on crafting a description that is easy for readers to understand and follow, and use paragraphs and formatting to break up the different segments of the post. Cite all references and acknowledge whether the idea is an adaptation of any other work. Also, don't forget to proofread for typos, misspellings and grammatical errors. Even the smallest mistake can make an idea hard to understand.

If you have a great idea for a TV show, don't keep it to yourself. Share it with the Greenlight Pix Community for feedback and a chance to turn the idea into a reality.
