    Are movies too long?
    by RSS Feed
    Here’s a Friday Question that became a whole post.

    Michael Dorsey wondered:

    Question: You mentioned in your review of "Licorice Pizza" that the film felt too long. I find that this is true about most movies released nowadays. Do you find this as well, and do

    Cast equity offer
    by Satriales
    We had a call today with our financier and I understand the concept of foreign presale, etc. But 5M of our budget will be accounted for with “equity cast offer.” The name is intuitive but I’m curious about the accounting. I assume this isn’t first dollar gross, right? These are definitely true...

    Do all movies need to have a message?
    by Acooljt
    I was looking through a screenwriting website earlier on how to structure your story and it stated something along the lines of plotting your message in the first act, yada yada yada. My question is, does a movie have to have a point or a message? Can’t it just be to entertain? I’d hate to force...

    We See and We Hear
    by RSS Feed
    John and Craig rant about prohibitive screenwriting advice and declare their allegiance to the “we see/we hear” convention. They analyze scripts from this year’s awards season to argue good story trumps all else. We also answer questions on screenplay fundamentals from parantheticals, action lines...

    Using Emotional Dichotomies
    by bioprofessor
    That's a terrible title, but what I'm referring to is the writer's strategy of alternating the emotional tone of scenes/sequences to keep the reader on edge and therefore engaged, i.e. a rollercoaster vs a long smooth trolly ride. I noticed this recently while binge watching episodes of Netflix's "Dead...

    How much money can a writer expect to make from selling their first script?
    by RKOwens
    Does anyone have any accurate information for how much money a new screenwriter, if they manage to sell their first not-low-budget script, can expect to make? Simply googling it results in wildly varying estimates, and the only threads I could find here are many years old and likely outdated.
