Quote of the Day: Leigh Brackett

Plot is people. Human emotions and desires founded on the realities of life, working at cross purposes, getting hotter and fiercer as they strike against each other until finally there’s an explosion—that’s Plot.

Quote of the Day: R.L. Stine

People say, ‘What advice do you have for people who want to be writers?’ I say, they don’t really need advice, they know they want to be writers, and they’re gonna do it. Those people who know that they really want to do this and are cut out for it, they know it.

Quote of the Day: David Wain

Every rule is made to be (and has been successfully) broken. But I would say every script has to have a “reason to be” — a vague but helpful rudder that has kept me on track during long, frustrating projects.

Screenwriter Profile: Richard Linklater

richard-linklaterThe Writer:

Richard Linklater is a genius. Period. He’s one of the most innovative writers and directors working in film today, as his recent film Boyhood certainly attests. (If you haven’t seen Boyhood yet, go to a theater right now. It’s that good. And if you have the script, please, please send it to me.) Linklater is the writer/director behind such wonderful films as Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Bernie, Dazed and Confused, and A Scanner Darkly.  read more »

Quote of the Day: Richard Linklater

You have to follow [a question] through production, post-production, and then some. If you can ever get into something and have it all figured out, then you probably shouldn’t make a film about it. Then, you’re done.

Before Sunset Script


The release of Boyhood has reminded me just how much I love Richard Linklater. He wrote the Before Sunset script as the follow up to Before Sunrise. You can also read the third piece of the trilogy, Before Midnight, and you can purchase a book containing both Before Sunrise and Before Sunset from Amazon.

Quote of the Day: Diablo Cody

Nobody wants to make movies about unfuckable women, period. I always have to make everyone hotter. “She can be pregnant, but she has to be cute too.” “She can be a burn victim, but she has to be cute too.” “We can’t put glasses on Amanda Seyfried; she won’t look as hot.” It never fucking ends. My latest script is about a woman in her sixties, so that should be interesting. She’ll be a very fuckable 60, I’m sure.
