Brilliant

Listening to this is a real incite on how a good script is crafted. A must for anyone looking for great stories and insight on scripts that is so rarely found.

The art of screenwriting

A great podcast, using simple sounds effects and music to bring the art of screenwriting to life in some wonderful short and feature length scripts.

A wonderful depiction of a difficult concept

This is a wonderful podcast. This story is a devastatingly accurate portrayal of dementia in a loved one. I have lived in a very similar situation, and I found the way this film is crafted to be extremely moving, balancing reality with emotion perfectly. Beautifully read by the writer, this story comes alive in a visceral way in this medium.
This is a unique idea for a podcast and it is brilliant to hear a screenplay perfomed in this way, celebrating the art of screenwriting without the need to be tied to a film. I have subscribed, I suggest you do too!
