Inspiration – Academy screenwriters talk about the craft
Via John August and NoFilmSchool a series of videos by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences discussing the craft, joy, and frustration of screenwriting, Featuring Marc Norman, Wesley Strick, Scott Frank, Nicholas Meyer, Lawrence Kasdan, Dick Clement, Phil Alden Robinson, Callie Khouri, Billy Ray, Robin Swicord, Eric Roth, Ted Griffin, Brian Helgeland and John August.
I found these clips inspirational and humanizing. Listening to how these writers go through the same anxieties, ordeals, and self-doubt as I do, makes me feel like I’m not always doing it wrong and inspires me to keep at it.
Writer or not, every film-maker should watch these.
