Two meetings, a good hike and a chocolate shake made for a good day at the Sundance lab, my last full day before flying home tomorrow afternoon.
John Gatins made a good point today about his work and his job. “His work” is writing, and “his job” is all the attendant meetings and drama it takes to get his work on the screen. It’s a helpful distinction, one I often make between the craft of screenwriting (the words on the page) and the profession of screenwriting (making a living at it).
As part of a partnership with YouTube, a crew has been shooting interviews and behind-the-scenes stuff with the filmmakers. I’ll be putting up those links as they come.
