Craig and John ret-con the Austin Film Festival, placing themselves on panels in which they didn’t participate. It’s a chance to give the answers they would have given without the bother of being asked (or listening to other people’s opinions).
For example, Terry Rossio’s seminar on “The Throw” — his term for how you end a scene — was presumably terrific. We didn’t attend, but it’s fun to spitball what we would have said about this interesting and under-discussed aspect of screenwriting.
Other topics discussed this week include:
- Kyle Killen’s secret shower
- Videogame storytelling
- Amazon Studios
- Pilots vs. presentations
Happy Halloween, everyone. Stay safe and dry.
- Marti Noxon
- Kyle Killen
- John’s pitch and outline for D.C.
- Amazon Studios panel write-up
- Popcorn Fiction panel write-up
- Terry Rossio
- INTRO: I Dream of Jeannie
- OUTRO: I Want to Be Evil, by Eartha Kitt
