It’s the detail things, sometimes, that have nothing, really, to do with the process of writing a script that still creep in to take some time. Logos, for example.
I’ve wanted to create some graphics to help advertise The Connor Wars a little better. Study after study shows that we humans are very visually oriented. We respond better to graphics and images than to words. My problem? I didn’t have a logo for this project. Well, I have one, now.
I’ve known what they meant for a while now–not only in The Connor Wars but how they also work for season 2 of The Sarah Connor Chronicles (though this is all my own supposition…obviously I’ve gleaned no insight from the TSCC creative staff).
You’ll find that the dots also more-or-less match up with how they were put on the blood wall, so there is even an added advantage there.
So, that’s the graphic logo. The three dots. An example of how they could be used is:
This likely will be what I use on my script covers (though not the title page).
The text style won’t be the guiding force in this. It’s all about the three dots. Sarah wasn’t wrong (I was going to say that Sarah wasn’t crazy…but actually, yeah, Sarah is crazy). In the past, in the future. The three dots matter. Since it has that much resonance, clearly the three dots had to be the logo. (So as not to spoil the surprise publicly, I ask that you don’t guess outside of email or the “Three Dot Guesses” topic in the spoiler forum.)
