(3) Screenwriting Shangri-La


Screenwriting Shangri-La, Scriptwriting Gurus and a bit of Fun...

A quick guide to my links.

  2. Danny Stack :- THE man! A friendly blog full of practical advice and insights about screenwriting from the inside. Read ALL his story vault.

  3. Lucy Vee :- THE woman! Top blog for updates, lists, inspiration, links and advice on how to and how not to write your script from a Pro script reader.

  8. Angryalien :- Jennifer Shiman hilariously re-imagines two hour movies in just thirty seconds, and still retains the major plot points! Pitching masterclass for when that Exec says " You've got half of minute of my time."

Lucy! Thanks for being my first...
to comment, I mean, I was getting a bit lonely out here in hyper-whatsit.

Greetings 'the Sheik', and congrats on your logline win over at Lucy's gaff. I'm proud to say that I voted for your logline - I'm a sucker for a teary eyed Christmas film, and your logline hit the nail on the head as far as I was concerned. That said, I tried voting for my own logline as well, but it didn't work! Darn computers.

Let's hope this is the start of a good year for us all!
