The Working Screenwriter Blog has posted an excellent interview with an anonymous literary agent. The insightful interview focuses on what agents are looking for in submissions, what to avoid, and how to stand out as a writer.

“Most of the scripts submitted to me are not marketable. If they were, I would be signing 10 clients a day. I’m still amazed screenwriters don’t go watch blockbuster movies and see why they worked.”

Pulp 2.0 posted a very interesting article showcasing just how to write a Sci-Fi Channel original movie. The article breaks down the channel’s seven act structure and describes the elements that are needed for a script to be considered for the network and independent production companies that produce for the network.

Reading screenplays before or after viewing a film can teach you a lot of about how a film changes and develops throughout production. It is also a lot of fun to find missing things and figuring out if you should blame the writer or director for particular scenes. One of the best sources for screenplays on the web is Drew’s Script-O-Rama.

Script-O-Rama is a collection of links to film, TV and anime scripts from across the web. The site is a direct path to hundreds of scripts. A lot of the films featured have multiple drafts and there are even completely unproduced screenplays (wanna read Michael Chabon’s Spiderman 2, or how about two different rejected Freddy vs Jason scripts? How do these stack up against the one the studio finally settled on?).

You can check out Drew’s here.
