I couldn’t believe it when I saw the news this morning. Julia Roberts chased down a Paparazzi forcing him to pull over. He was trying to get a video of her at her children’s school, but she reminded him there are other children present.
I don’t know my laws all that well and instead of researching this particular one when I should be working on my synopsis, I’ll simply state this. As a teacher, I wasn’t allowed to take pictures or video of the children for ANY reason unless I had written permission from their parent or guardian. Are the Paparazzi excluded from this rule? Shouldn’t they take into consideration the privacy of children (whether they are a celebrity’s kid or not)? Oh, they should and most of them are probably aware of it, but they simply don’t care. All they think about is getting that fat paycheck. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m tired of hearing stories of how these people continually cross the line. Something should be done to make them accountable for their actions. After all, celebrities are people too. Maybe they can expect to lose some privacy because of their status, but enough is enough.
And… Since you asked… The synopsis writing is kind of dragging a bit. I started out trying to follow a couple of different “formulas” for this thing. Not workout too good. So, today, I’m going to try a different approach. I will take my little index cards (thank God I used them) and jot down the major plot information. It’ll be a little choppy at first, but I can smooth that out later. Let’s get some words down first. Otherwise, the whole thing seems soooooo overwhelming. Tips anyone?
