Had the chance to hear Amanda give a mini-seminar last night at a We Make Movies (NY) Writers Lab. She keeps the screenwriting process simple. Her theories and method draw from Joseph Campbell, Aristotle, William Goldman, and Kurt Vonnegut, among others. Here is her stuff: https://linktr.ee/AmandaMoresco

Spielberg reminds filmmakers to focus on the story: https://collider.com/steven-spielberg-filmmaker-advice-comments/ Steven, aspiring to Eagle Scout, backs into filmmaking on his way to the Photography Merit Badge. His willingness to face and overcome and adapt were evident early on - like not having a still camera and working around that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tzudruTNA0

Come learn how another group does something very similar to our meetup group. WIFV-DC, a well-respected group of writers and filmmakers does a First-5 Pages event, where a number of scripts are cast and read by actors, with comments on each. Only the first 5 pages of each are read, the idea being if you don't grab the reader by the throat quickly the script hits the round-file (trash can). I've participated in a few of these and learn something every time, as well as expanding the network. In contrast, it makes me more appreciative and impressed with the work we do every two weeks. BTW, I am reading in 4 of the 6 scripts. Jim Beers, who has come to our meetups before is also reading. Here's the link: https://www.wifv.org/calendar/#id=11366&cid=783&wid=401&type=Cal

This was a first-time effort by a member of the Charm City Filmmakers group. Tiffani Dilworth wrote, directed, and did a cameo. It was shot in a single day on location. Runs 13min. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbVRI1OvtVU&list=PL26_JJWEH_MGGNQt9hVjZA_imCG1uJ4Ki&index=2&t=11s If you like the story line, check out Woody Allen's comedy, Play it Again, Sam (1972). https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069097/?ref_=ttawd_awd_tt

Evette Vargas. She has some pretty impressive notches in her belt.
