Blander Than Fiction
Episode 119 — Released Mar 26 2021
The internet has found many ways to reduce all kinds of art to bland, predictable, fetish-ridden nonsense, so why not the craft of adapting a story to be acted out?
r/screenwriting is allegedly a place where people learn to write screenplays, but in practice, is that really what happens? Join us as we trip over tropes, remain unmoved by the maudlin, and scratch our heads at how anyone can envision what’s written down to show up on a screen, despite the inclusion of Int., Bedroom, Morning, Girl.
This week, Extra Credit must leave our future in the past.
