Various scribes of the scribosphere have taken up the challenge to post a page of a screenplay. I've actually published 5 pages from the beginning of my adaptation of Homer's Odyssey
as an appendix to my screenwriting book. Partly to demonstrate what I think is good format and style, and yeah, partly because I'm proud of it (it remains one of the best things I've ever written) and it's a long shot the thing ever gets produced. And partly to help get
it produced. Here are those five pages...
In the TV writing book, you'll get to see an episode breakdown, a beat sheet, and the fourth act of my draft of Charlie Jade
episode 16. It is not 100% my work; I am not such a fool as to rewrite everyone else on staff but not let the rest of the staff improve my stuff. If you dig the show you may find it interesting to see where the writing staff envisioned that episode going.
Just finished my first quarter at UCLA and I'm still jazzed. Can I asked you a couple of questions? What do you think was the best thing you got out of the program and which professors influenced you the most? Lastly, why did you decide to go to Canada, rather than stay in Hollywood?
The link in this post is "expired," according to Amazon. I don't know why I clicked, because I have the book. I am a hopeless link clicker (Clinker? Licker?)
Well i don't have the book but I guess I will, it seems quite interesting.
The link works now.
I wonder what you think about TROY (2004) with Bradd Pitt and how it compares to your concept in "Wine Dark Sea"?
Did you write that before or after "Troy"?
I suppose that production makes your shot even longer?
