Scripting a book trailer.

A novel contains reams of material. Distilling all that into a movie-style trailer took some major thought. I think I have what will work best, introducing the audience to the story and the major conflict.

LQkl3yInQQqJVWBvOJlr+gThe key is to tell enough without telling too much. Not an easy task. A great production team is ready to bring this script to the screen. I’ll post more about the process, and of course, the final video.

Screenplay Anatomy

The image of the whiteboard below, shows my rough sketch of a screenplay in progress.

It’s broken up into the major parts, typically 10, 15, and 25 pages at a time. Then there are the key plot points. As you can see, the second act has a couple of black holes that need to be worked out. Turning this into a finished screenplay will take a while. Stay tuned.

Very Good TV, podcast

I’m relatively new to podcast listening. However, I have found several that are worth the time, providing great material on various subjects of interest. Among my top three, Indiewire’s “Very Good TV” podcast is hosted by Liz Shannon Miller and Ben T. Travers. The pair has developed a great rapport as they share insight and critique of a wide range of television programs. We’re talking everything from “The Walking Dead” to “The Americans.” They know the ground they cover offering more than the usual multi-star review rating or thumbs up/thumbs down type of commentary. You’ll hear extended conversations about actors’ careers, director styles, even production decisions by companies small and large.

Here’s a link to their page on Indiewire.com:
