Two emerging screenwriters – Chas Fisher and Stuart Willis – try to work out what makes great screenplays work. Discovering what it takes by analysing what successful writers put on the page — and then talking/discussing/arguing about it in a podcast.

Monthly. Let’s not get carried away here.

Chas Fisher grew up in Argentina, Egypt, India and France. As a result, he is committed to writing social justice stories… so long as they feature pirates or werewolves or werewolf-pirates!

Stuart Willis is an award-winning writer & director of elevated genre. His writing has been nominated for four Writer’s Guild awards. As a director, he has screened at numerous international festivals, been shortlisted for the world-famous TropFest TWICE, and is currently finishing post-production on RESTORATION an online-miniseries due for release in 2016. His other credits include PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, THE LEGO MOVIE, HARRY POTTER.

  1. Hey guys!

    Just wanted to drop in a say I absolutely love what you’re doing, it’s relit the flame for me to write again, yada, yada, you probably get this opener a lot, yada, yada, yada.

    With that said,
    My process so far is to see what scripts you two go over, read them both in their entirety, write down what I believe to be the plot points, and then review as I listen to the episode.

    As I’ve been doing this I thought it would be cool if you two created a sort of…assignment? I guess is the best word for it. IE: you go over a script and posted in the info section is a 10 question assignment of questions along the lines of, “Where is the end of act 2 in Paul Blart Mall Cop 6”, or, “What is Madea’s subtext in this X line in the latest, “Tyler Perry Presents: Tyler Perry’s Latest Painful Endeavor”?

    Does this make sense? That’d be rad if it made sense.

    Thank you!
