One of my favourite sites

If you were on the blog late last night you might have seen a link to, and a cut-and-paste from, this site.

It’s a huge amount of brilliant screenwriting advice from Terry Rossio and Ted Elliott, the guys behind Shrek, Pirates of the Caribbean and Aladdin (as well as this year’s less successful Lone Ranger).

Anyway, apparently my cut-and-paste fucked their site up, so now there’s just the link.

Click on it to find out about how ideas (not just screenwriting ones) live and die, the Raiders Of The Lost Ark method of cramming more words onto a page, and why letting your first excellent screenplay go unmade is a really smart thing to do.
