Just a quick thanks for a great workshop at the JBFC that finished last week. Hope you all enjoyed/learned something. Here’s a favorite Faulkner quotation to send you into summer.
“I only write when I’m inspired, so I make sure I’m inspired every day at 9:00am”
*9:00 may be a bit early but you get the point.
I expect emails at any point before tomorrow morning…. TITLES if you have them!!! Even just a working title.
Since we’re gonna talk about endings next week, you could watch LIttle Miss Sunshine. I know you have a bunch of writing to do and that should be priority… but…. Michael Arndt is a master of the ending.
I posted a talked of his a while back where he goes into detail about structuring an ending. You can find it here. Seriously though WRITE!!!!! And if you can come up with a working title for Tues. that would be great too.
If you didn’t get to watch Chinatown or are looking for a follow up I’d check out Who Framed Roger Rabbit. A classic blending of live action and animation and by the far the #1 animated noir ever.
Writers and Procrastination are like — wait, just let me read the wiki article on procrastination and look up some quotes from my favorite authors, but first I have to find the right music for this simile…
Last Day to Watch Chinatown.
I just posted up a bunch of new and favored shorts for some of the students in the new Screenwriting class @ the Lab… enjoy! Don’t hesitate to comment either. I’m interested in your take.
There’s a new group that started @ the Burns last week so be prepared for more updates and info as they get involved in the Screenwriters Workshop.
