1. Didja accidentally blow through the whole, "We're using our real names" thing on registration? No problem, just send me (Mike) a Conversation message and I'll get you sorted, by which I mean hammered-into-obedient-line because I'm SO about having a lot of individuality-destroying, oppressive shit all over my forum.

Resources For This Class

Discussion in 'Film School 101' started by Chris Schütze, Nov 23, 2020.

  1. Hey guys,
    I am halfway though this class and I am tremendously enjoying it.

    After like 52 minutes Mike is recommending some Youtube videos and 2 books on writing screen plays: "How to write a screenplay in 21 days" and "How to write effective screenplays". I can't find neither of those books and he isn't mentioning the authors.
    There is a book called "How to write a movie in 21 days" by Viki King. So that might be it. But I am totally not sure about it.
    Also there is "How to write good Screenplays and get them into production" by Linda M. James. But that's quite a different name from the second book he mentions.

    Do you guys have any idea, if this might be the suggested books? Other books I stubled upon are "Story" by Robert McKee and "Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting" by Syd Field, which for sure aren't the mentioned books but seem to get recommended a lot elsewhere.

    Some of the recommended videos I found are these:




    And in general Mike recommends to watch some interviews from people like these:
    Roger Deakens, Vittorio Storaro, Gordon Willis, Thelma Schoonmaker.

    Thanks,
    Chris
