There is no shortage of ugliness in the world, If Man closed his eyes to it there would be even more.
We know you've been working very hard on your screenplay, but before you go looking for some professional feedback, you might keep in mind the following piece by A History of Violence screenwriter Josh Olson. I will not read your fucking script. That's simple enough, isn't it?
Being the big super slow-motion fans that we are, last week we went over the several solutions that are there out there to make some good super-slow motion. We began with Cameras that are good to do it . In this post, we’ll take a look at Software.
An alternate title for this post might be, “Things I Think About Writing,” which is to say, these are random snidbits (snippets + tidbits) of beliefs I hold about what it takes to be a writer.

Ever wondered how screenwriters do their thing? Lots of people have, and there's a whole genre of books out there devoted to helping up-and-comers understand the arcane art of movie-writing. Despite all the screenwriting panels and workshops and books and DVD commentaries in the world -- all the billions of words printed about screenwriting and how it's done -- when it comes down to it, most writers are relatively private about the nitty-gritty of their process. That's why I love reading John August's blog . August's credits include Big Fish, Go, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Prince of Persia and Corpse Bride , among others (so he's definitely not one of the many screenwriting book authors or teachers with flimsy/ancient credits) and one of the best things about his blog are the videos he's been making. They're essentially long-form screen captures of John writing or editing scenes, and talking as he does it.
