This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we speak with Paranormal Activity 3 star Lauren Bittner, get some minute-by-minute screenwriting tips from “Something Startling Happens: The 120 Story Beats Every Writer Should Know” author Todd Klick, and we present a very special interview with Mr. Orson Welles (as played by an inebriated Geoff LaTulippe).
At least 2/3rds of the show is a great idea. The rest is a genius idea that just might burn down the internet.
On This Week’s Show:
Doors Slamming Shut On Their Own [The Beginning – 15:25]: Lauren Bittner plays Julie in Paranormal 3, the mother of the two woman who have starred (full-grown) in the first two films. She joins us to talk about starring in her first horror feature and how important it is to have a sense of humor when trying to scare the hell out of someone.
Minute 8 [15:25 – 29:30]: Screenwriter Todd Klick discovered an unbelievable pattern in the most successful films. He wrote “Something Startling Happens” as a guide to fellow writers to tap into that rhythm, and he stops by to talk about a page-by-page method to scripts.
Inebriated Interview Theater: Orson Welles Edition [29:30 – The Bloody End]: Going The Distance screenwriter Geoff LaTulippe threatens his own career by playing Orson Welles in a recreation of an old interview about bullfighting and Ernest Hemingway. We then pour another round and break down the man, the legend, and Citizen Kane.
