Whether it's your vomit draft or your 100th revision, there are some simple steps to take to make sure your screenplay is in great shape. “Rewriting can be really challenging because we all want to look at whatever we wrote and say, ‘that is brilliant. I don’t have to change a word!’ And that’s rarely the case,” said Ross Brown, who wrote for hugely popular shows like “Step by Step” and “The Cosby Show.” Now he spends his time teaching other writers how to get their story ideas to the screen as the director of the MFA program at Antioch University ...

This Month in Movie History – July 2020 Roundup

North by Northwest, July 1, 1959 - “The Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures.” That’s how screenwriter Ernest Lehman described the screenplay for North by Northwest, which debuted on this day in history in Chicago in 1959. It is now considered one of the greatest films of all time. Lehman and Hitchcock worked together on the main elements of the story, one of which was the idea of the hero being mistaken for a fake agent. That idea actually came from an American journalist who had told Hitchcock about spies creating fake agents during World War II. Hitchcock and Lehman bought that idea from the journalist for $10,000.

How to Handle Script Notes, According to Veteran TV Writer Ross Brown

What Salary Can a Script Writer Expect to Earn?

What Salary Can a Script Writer Expect to Earn?

“The Long Kiss Goodnight” (1996), an action thriller written by Shane Black, sold for $4 million. “Panic Room” (2002), a thriller written by David Koepp, sold for $4 million. “Déjà Vu” (2006), a science fiction action film written by Terry Rossio and Bill Marsilii, sold for $5 million. Can every screenwriter who sells a screenplay expect to make millions off it? The scripts I previously mentioned that sold for millions are more of a rarity rather than a regular occurrence in the industry. A lot of the high-selling screenplay sales happened in the 1990s or early 2000s, and the landscape of the industry, as well as the ... Continuer à lire

Ashlee Stormo: How to Find an Agent or Manager Using IMDb Pro

In today's video tip with aspiring screenwriter Ashlee Stormo, she's showing you exactly how she uses popular online platform IMDb Pro to find potential managers and agents that are the right fit for her. Keep in mind, a writer doesn't need representation (screenwriter Adam G. Simon told us this hilarious story of how he represented himself to get his movie "Man Down" made), but it certainly can help.
