Re: How to represent grief effectively?

My favorite is Al Pacino (Godfather), where his daughter is shot on the steps of the opera house after an evening with the family. There are no tears, no words-- just one hammershocking moment where...

Re: What makes a spec GREAT?

A concept that intrigues and resonates with the entire world-- an execution that nails the promise of the premise-- then leaves us stunned with the beauty of the story and writing. It will have a...

Re: What about the STORY?

Yes; you are alone:) At least to a degree bc there should come a point and soon where you embrace structure and it simply becomes instinctual. It's just the beginning of a multi leveled craft that...

Re: Treatments

If this is simply a request from someone responding to a cold query, and will not read your spec unless you send a full treatment first, YES, just send your expanded pitch/syn/or one page. And I...

Re: Treatments

Why would you write a treatment of a completed spec? Are you sure they are not asking for the log/pitch/one page and or even a brief Syn?

If you've got someone interested in an idea for a story...

Re: The ill-timed read request

I would never do this. But, I have to admit to sharing a draft too early in confidence a few times. I learned no matter who it is, you really only get one chance-- so what ever you're doing make...

Re: Best script you've read this year?

A spec written by a friend called HUBRIS:) and also liked OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN just a tad better than WHITE HOUSE DOWN.

But I also loved one of Young's specs-- which I guess I shouldn't mention...

Re: Already in Development?

Set it aside and write your next spec, then revisit it when you're repped. If your rep chooses to shop it, no harm done; otherwise, you spent good time writing as we all improve with every project. ...

Re: Important - How NOT to communicate with people...

"Power is an illusion." Sounds like the guy's been reading too much of this (and got confused.) :)

Re: Villains: Better that They Don't Believe They Are "Evil?"

An antag's motivation and or, character traits for me are built with "whatever serves the story." Pretty simplistic but that's always what pops into my head when I'm faced with "choices."

Re: Manager issue

In truth, he may never read them. If you've sent your loglines and, or, pitched him the concepts during your initial meetings, he knows what you have and he won't forget. If he's choosing to avoid...

Re: The Double Trailer...

Awesome. A brilliantly contrived conflict built in from the very foundation of the story. The reveal in that trailer is only one facet of the true twist-- "The Double." The best hooks are "double"...

Re: Is 'theme' really everything?

These are my thoughts and the way I see story; so I can't refer to anything if anyone disagrees.

For me--theme is both the question and the answer. It isn't the metaphor, which is a tool used to...
