Re: "Is it Financed?"

Re: Who went to USC or UCLA?

I graduated from USC film school long ago; well before the vast majority of the books on screenwriting ever even existed. I believe my roommate had Syd Field's first book.

Re: Anyone Use Scrivener?

It doesn't matter if you have a Mac, IF you use an online service. I normally wouldn't use these since I have Photoshop, but for images for a script you should be. Do a very quick Google search and...

Re: Final Draft 11 - Beat Board PDF

I did a quick mock up for you, so that you can see what it looks like. Ignore the story, of course. It was written on the fly.
