DZ-62: Unfilmables and Unscriptables (Part 3) – As Ifs & Emotional context

How do you know if your unfilmable is good… or if you’re just being a wanker?

In this third and final part of our series on unfilmables, Chas and Stu turn their critical eye to… each other’s work! They take their key learnings from the previous episodes and apply them to rewriting scenes from their own projects. They discuss metaphors, emotional context, and how you can write tone on the page without resorting to unfilmables.

They are also joined by Carissa Lee (who has been reading the excerpts) to discuss her perspective as an actor on the scripts we’ve been reading; and they answer listener questions about unfilmables.

And, lastly, in backmatter Carissa reads the entire script to Stu’s award-nominated script, DUST BUNNY.

Thanks to Chris Walker for editing this episode, and Carissa Lee for performing the big print.
