3 Shout-Outs

Billy on Billy: I loved Billy Mernit’s post on Billy Wilder, which included Wilder’s famous “11 Tips on Screenwrting.” Every screenwriter should have these tips memorized.

Unk not only has a pair of great posts on George Polti’s “36 Dramatic Situations” (Part 1 and Part 2) but he also offers a detailed, well-organized, downloadable .pdf document of ALL 36 Dramatic Situations, which should be in every screenwriter’s library. Great job, Unk.

The smart & fabulous MaryAn Batchellor, author of Fencing with the Fog, has two great posts (and after-post discussions) on “The Purpose of Battle Speeches” (Part 1 and Part 2). Thoroughly edifying.

Very kind shout out, thank you. Not as deserving, however, as all this uber-cool subtext studying.

Hey! Where's the shout out for my 'words not to put into blog titles' post?

maryan - think nothing of it. It's much deserved.

dix - My next shout-out for you will be the day I receive the long-anticipated subtext submission from you. Hehehe...
