Online Screenplays (Originally published October 16, 2009)

I am going to be a screenwriter.  It is a job that is perfectly suited to me and it is a career that would actually make me happy.  Until recently, though, I was unsure of the screenplay format.  I had a vague idea of how it would look on the page but wanted to be completely sure before I got laughed at by film and TV executives.

I was bored one day a while back and was using my favorite Firefox application, Stumble!, and happened upon an amazing website.  As a big Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch, Coen Brothers, and comic book (and related movies) fan, this was like ambrosia for me.

I’ve spent a ton of time reading the scripts for films like Pulp Fiction, Fargo, and James Cameron’s abandoned Spider-Man project.  It’s helped me understand the process a lot more and inspired me in my own writing.  But most importantly, it’s a lot of fun.

If you want to see how your favorite movies were transferred from the page to the screen, give it a shot.
