Broken Projector: 2,670-Second Screenwriting Lessons

Rounders Oreos

Miramax Films

In less than 300 days, writer/producer/director Brian Koppelman has delivered 300 screenwriting lessons, 6 seconds at a time. That’s a half hour of Vines that act as miniature cattle prods for anyone looking to have the creative section of their brain lit up.

To celebrate the achievement, Brian joins me to explain what a beloved cookie has to do with the writing process, to describe the methods he uses to get unstuck, and to challenge a conventional way of thinking about “breaking into the business.”

You should follow Brian (@briankoppelman), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.
