Re: Scriptnotes' slushpile

I'm not a fan of podcasts generally, I usually don't have the patience to listen all the way through. Scriptnotes posts transcripts of each session a few days later, and it's a great way to get to...

Re: Referring to scenes from other movies

Well, as another writer bragging about the canon of movies she has seen, just wanted to point out a correction: the movie you reference is "It's a Gift," and there isn't actually a character in the...

Re: Movie/TV show that doesn't hold up...

I love Wings, just watched some episodes from seasons 3 and 4 on DVD. I don't see what's flat about it, I think it's a very entertaining show. Maybe a little too reliant on jokes, but they're...

Re: Movie/TV show that doesn't hold up...

I still love "Blazing Saddles," but "Young Frankenstein" is a work of art. So funny, great gags plus wonderful music and cinematography. You probably know this, but Mel Brooks used the same set from...

Re: Movie/TV show that doesn't hold up...

Just watched Parenthood (1989), hadn't seen it in years. What a beautifully crafted film, I can't think of another ensemble comedy that's as rich and holds up so well. That last scene when the kid...

Re: Gene Wilder

In Puttin' on the Ritz - when he slips him a cookie for performing like a trained seal - so funny.

Re: Inspiration vs. focus

Based on what you said about having lots of notes and "plot decisions to make": my suggestion is to consider finishing a complete draft, working with your notes. You may find as you plow through that...

Re: Are there any online affordable courses about screenwriting?

Very good advice in this thread, and great list of resources from fa4 for learning about screenwriting.

Re: Outlining

Re: Electronically signing release form?

OK, it worked. I was able to access the tools on another computer and fill it out. I must have downloaded a better version of Adobe on there at one point, that seems to be the factor.

Re: Max Landis article on Deadline
