  1. Can anyone recommend any good comedy pilots from the last few yrs that really pushed the envelope in interesting ways? Like if Charlie Kaufman wrote a TV pilot? Thx!

      Charlie Kaufman did write a TV Pilot, How & Why for FX in 2014.

  3. On phone with producer regarding comedy series. He wants us to cut down on the drama, but wants "drama like stakes" in the pilot. #WTF

  4. A lot of great screenwriting lessons can be gleaned from the musical Hamilton. Worth a listen on Spotify -- especially "My Shot"

  5. General question for the entire group...have a pilot script and a feature film I'm planning on starting and want to know which one you think would be the best one to start with? What works the best as far as querying agents, a feature or a pilot?

      I'd also suggest writing the one that you're more into, because that will certainly translate to the script.

  11. A potential plot hole in INTERSTELLAR. Why do they need to get the space station off of Earth's surface? I understand that Earth is going to run out of food and oxygen, but space doesn't have food or oxygen either. Why couldn't they seal it and make it a surface space station?

    1. nmoher

      nmoher

      Exactly, I was going to say that's the only plot hole you found?

  13. Stupid question here: I'm working in MMS, how do I format it to get rid of the extra space between lines of dialogue. I see this all the time now and I can't believe I still don't know how to do it. Help, please!

      Just go to format -> element styles -> dialogue. Then you'll see "spacing in lines" and change "before" to 0.

      Would also fulfil Ford's desire to have Han killed off.
