Adelaide Screenwriter : Screenwriting, Movies, Tuckshop & Charm School.
If you follow this blog you learn about every great screenwriter eventually.Eric Roth says a writer needs arrogance, the self confidence that they will be able to articulate a story that will stay with the audience in a primal way.Mr Roth exercises and works every day, starting at page 1 of the act each time. If he gets stuck, he changes something about the scene. He also reads 3 books a week.He begins with theme - what will resonate? Then the subject matter. Then how the characters relate to the subject matter. A good writer sees his characters as real people and knows everything about them.The acceptance speech is inspiring. Films are where dreams are made, they find a place in the psyche. Films have to reach an undefinable truth, or else the audience will think about one themselves.
