Scriptcast 62 – Emily Blake, Screenwriting, and Chicks Who Script

This episode we welcomed screenwriter Emily Blake back to the podcast for the third, yes, THIRD time!  (Don’t miss Episode 10: Emily Blake and also one of my favorite episodes Episode 42: Emily Blake Strikes Back!)

Emily Blake, a former English teacher, is well known in the screenwriting community for her screenwriting website Bamboo Killers and more recently as one of the creators and hosts of the Chicks Who Script podcast. We had a good time talking with her about podcasting, screenwriting, and everything else.

Discussed:

Recording a podcast in a garage in the San Gabriel Valley, screenwriting podcasts, the origins of the Chicks Who Script podcast, ScriptNotes podcast with John August and Craig Mazin, Mazin’s she-hulk slut, dearth of female-centric film podcasts, Matt’s unreasonable dislike of Max Landis, how to fire your representation, Dr. Who, producing a short film, cosplay, comic book convention film festivals, everything else…

Scriptcast 61 – The Value of Film School

Is film school helpful in becoming a screenwriter?  Matt and Eric are joined by USC film school graduate and up-and-coming writer/director Raymond C Lai 

This is another episode where we’re still fine tuning the sound.  Sorry about that. We had two big mics that picked up me (Eric) and Ray Lai VERY well, but it’s a little harder to hear Matt and Brian Lee.  

Oh, Brian Lee is also on the episode.  We’re not sure why, but he went to the Naval Academy, so we just say “yes” to whatever he asks.

Discussed:

18-year olds, how to become a screenwriter, Harvard, Film school, Brian Lee and the Naval Academy, debt and film school, USC film school, writer-director Raymond C. Lai, is film school worth the money, deadlines, Ray is talented at many disciplines, film sets, gaining experience in making films, what you learn at film school, peers.

Scriptcast 59 – Best of 2014 (Sort of)

In this brisk episode Matt and Eric are joined by writer Brian Lee to talk about the best things we watched in 2014.

Apologies for the quality of my microphone.  We continue to tweak our audio in this new post-UCLA Radio era.  Matt and Brian sound great, and I will never, ever use that mic again.
