The thing I love about these creative spark videos is seeing how different everyone’s process is. When I started writing I was so ridiculously in search for “the right way to write a screenplay”. I spent so much time searching for the best way to outline, or card, or research … that I basically spent no time writing. Not that all that searching didn’t manifest itself into how I write today… but I think the most important lesson I learned is to just write and figure out what works best for you.
In this next video, Screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, We Bought A Zoo) tells us how her ideas form and how she turns them into movies.
