We’re just one week away from our Online Introduction to Professional Screenwriting Course, which starts on Thursday January 28th with a class on Concept and Development!
One of the most important skills for a writer is getting the opening of your script right – and part of that is setting the tone. A great premise can be ruined if its presented in the wrong way, and this often happens if the screenplay doesn’t set the tone correctly. So what even is “tone”, and how do you get it right?
“One man’s life touches so many others, when he’s not there it leaves an awfully big hole.” IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE is a perennial festive rewatch for a lot of families in the holiday season, and after the events of 2020, its themes have become even more relevant than ever. Jake Morgan discusses why that is – and what screenwriters can learn about writing Christmas movies…
It’s tougher than ever to predict the future of our industry in these uncertain times, and that’s why it’s also more important than ever to keep an eye on what scripts are selling. If you want to know if your script will succeed, you need to look at what producers are interested in right now – so here’s our pick of script sales from October 2020.
