Video: 5 Great Screenwriters Talk Craft

Christopher Boone of NoFilmSchool.com has put together five videos of award-winning screenwriters talking about their writing process. Boone writes:

Today I present to you five award-winning screenwriters discussing their approach to the craft of screenwriting. You may want to get a snack or even a small meal because some of these videos are long, but all of them offer unique insights into how each of these writers (or writing teams) approach a story, and then break the story down into screenplay format. Hopefully, these videos will educate and inspire you as you work on your own screenwriting craft.

Check out all of the videos at NoFilmSchool.com.

Quote of the Day: Lucy Vee

There’s absolutely no reason you can’t write in ANY genre if you are prepared to put the work in. Genre is craft. Craft can be learnt. So learn the conventions of the genre you want to write. Watch all the movies in that genre, big and small; read all the scripts. Go to events, learn about it. Read articles, blogs, soak it all up.
