  1. I think I'm using the term PRELAP wrong? I'm using it for a VO that starts before that scene begins. Is that correct?

      Prelap, and I've used it, is in my opinion one of those unnecessary technical terms that create a hitch in the read. I prefer…THE SOUND OF SHATTERING GLASS AS…and then take us into the seen where the the body just flew through the window. Just my two cents.

  2. Apparently foreign distributors are really interested in the horror thriller spec I've been working on this summer and want the script ASAP. Has anyone else had to rush write a script before?

      Hey, it has a cheetah! And Cormac's mytho-poeticism. Men consumed with moral quandries, and women who chase them into the corners of their darkest desires. Did I mention it has cheetahs?

  6. I really like Max's writing and his style but... man, that interview was something else. Wouldn't want any women I know near him.

  7. As someone who regularly questions his sanity and abilities in this uncertain and often agonizing endeavor, I'd like to extend a big, blanket loving thanks to all you TBers who have shared your work here. With so many stories around us, just sheer numbers, it's easy to forget that every screenplay is in some ways evidence of a battle. Proof its author tangled with the abyss, and emerged to write another day. Presenting it to the world then takes a whole other kind of courage.
