It's been a few months since The List was last updated and we have some sad news: Jim Mercurio's fantastic web resource How To Write A Screenplay has gone to the great webstream in the sky. Nightmare! Our condolences to Jim - he says if ANYONE out in www.land saved any chunks of text from his website, PLEASE get in touch with him: send any emails to me and I'll pass them on. Let's hope he can get his website up and running again ASAP since that was one of my faves on the list.
So, congrats to Scott The Reader, Ellin Stein and Robin Kelly as they all have new articles that have made it to The List! We've also got some interesting articles, like a satirical look on how crap movies make it to screen and a listing of cinematic terms for those of you who might not know your montage from your mise-en-scene. The List also has a brand spanking new section on Writing for Radio... Bang2writers seem to have embraced this wholeheartedly since the BBC's script call back in June for The Royal Tapes and I'm seeing more and more radio scripts nowadays. I'm particularly interested to hear from people who know of links to interviews and "how to" guides for radio that AREN'T on the BBC's site if you find any. It also occurred to me that it would be really nice to have a section on The List dedicated to short film. If you find any links for interesting articles on this, get in touch.
Veteran readers of The List will find the updates listed in bold - most are in the "miscellaneous" section. If you haven't cast your eye over The List before though, what are you waiting for? Click here.
