I’m in love with this Creative Spark series from Academy Originals - the new Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences YouTube channel. 

This one is from Paul Haggis on writing: "Finding those moments in your own life that haunt you, and then fictionalizing them. Finding where you’re truly guilty and exploring that".

I can’t remember where I found this, but it truly is an incredibly helpful chart for writing.

My new video is done! This is a fun one - a spoof infomercial for our healthcare era ;)

Written and starring comedian Kevin Froleiks. Shot and edited by me (Lisa Romagnoli).

Watch and (hopefully) enjoy!

Fascinating video that breaks down the screenwriting process of Dustin Lance Black (writer of Milk). Wow, I’m so impressed with his workflow - a solid year of research, and then HUNDREDS of index cards that get refined down to a table-covering outline. Watch - it’ll make you want to work harder.

Bertie Gilbert (awesome YouTuber) talks about taking negative life experiences and putting them into your work (specifically a short film he made). Turn negative feels into positive energy.
