when a topic of how teletype can be difficult to get into came up again recently it gave me an idea…
teletype haiku - a scene limited to 6 lines only (i thought of limiting it to 3 lines but that’s probably too much, but if you can do it - great!)
something self contained - i imagine autogenerating stuff will be the obvious choice, but it’ll be interesting to think of other ideas too!
you can only use 6 lines in total. this can be all in one script, or several, but the total number of lines should not exceed 6
you can use pattern data but it’s preferable if it’s set in a script as well. if it’s not possible make sure to include a note explaining how pattern data should be manually initialized
you can use features only available in beta versions but make sure to mention if this is the case
these are not hard rules. if you create an amazing scene that uses 7 lines please post it!
when posting please consider linking to a video or audio demo if you have one, and if this takes off let’s use #teletypehaiku tag on social media (the cool thing - we might even be able to share the actual scripts on twitter/insta since they’re so small!)
