Tonight's topic is cliches: Ones that are way over played & how to use them appropriately if you have to. See how our cliche-busting writers keep it original. Enjoy! @jeannevb Get the transcript on storify too. Note: NO USA CHAT next weekend due to Labor Day. Have a great holiday!
USA Scriptchat Topic: Writing the Comedy Screenplay – How to be funny on the page and in the room. Zac Sanford @zacsanford moderated tonight's chat on comedy writing. It's the first in a series of genre chats that Zac will moderate every month. The scriptchat gang gives great insights and tips into comedy writing. If you didn't get a chance to attend the chat live, check out the transcript below. It's also available on Storify:
Scriptchat is honored to have Amazon Studios@Amazon_Studios on USA Scriptchat tonight! I've had the pleasure of working with Amazon Studios, trying out their new storyboarding tool, Amazon Storyteller (to read what I learned about screenwriting from storyboarding, click here).
Read on and learn more about the power of storyboarding. Enjoy! @jeannevb
USA Moderator: Jeanne Veillette Bowerman @jeannevb
On Euro scriptchat we talked about writers who have taken the role of Director, Producer, Editor or Actor in their own work.
Make sure to read the transcript if it's something you hope to do in the future.
We are beyond thrilled to finally have Amazon Studios @Amazon_Studios guesting on USA Scriptchat this Sunday, 5pm PST!
Amazon Studios has evolved greatly to better meet our screenwriting community's needs. So if you've been anxious to learn more, this is the time.
I had the privilege of playing with their new storyboarding tool, Amazon Storyteller, and blogging about it for them on their site. (If you're curious about what you can learn about screenwriting by storyboarding, give it a read, Blogging a Story's Foundation... One Board at a Time.)
Don't miss the fun with Amazon Studios! ~ Jeanne @jeannevb
