Call me pretentious if you like, but in this Golden Age of dialogue-driven television,”Under The Skin” gives me an intriguing reason to go to the movies. Scarlett Johansson Okay.  Take any of our most beloved cable television series – Breaking Bad, Game Of ...

My thoughts exactly. You nailed what I thought all day. I love all the questions I have in my head about the characters in this. I love that it wasn't explained to me on a platter and made easy for me. A film to think about! What a concept.

"Save The Cat" Beat Sheet: Plan Nine From Outer Space

Why not SHOOT that script yourself?
Many fellow filmmakers and students that I work with write scripts that they plan to finance and direct themselves. Digital technology and social media has made it viable for nearly anyone to make a feature film if they have a little money and perseverance...

Yeah. Sure. 'Micro' budget. You haven't seen my bank account, apparently. Nothing 'micro' about it.

Why YOU Should Be Watching Hannibal
Like many snobby, pretentious, lazy people, I tend to only watch premium cable (Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Mad Men, Orange is The New Black, and so on.)  I tend to avoid the networks, especially if the network show in general is a spinoff or remake. ...

What is a "treatment" for a screenplay for? Why bother writing one? What's the format of a beat sheet or treatment? Should the "beats" all follow the template in Save The Cat? Do I have to figure everything out before going to script?

I tackle these and other questions in Week Three of the screenwriting class I teach at USC. You can read all about it in Genre Hacks. Plus you can read the treatments I wrote for abandoned sequels like Turistas 2, Rambo 5, and The Haunting in New York. (trolls, feel free to mock.)
