Scriptcake is dedicated to the art and craft of screenwriting. With over 20 years of experience teaching screenwriting, I've seen novice screenwriters struggle with the same issues over and over again. I’ve created this podcast for those of you who struggle with these very same script issues. This podcast will help you overcome the most common mistakes screenwriters make and will help you develop your idea into a multi-dimensional story. If you want help formatting your screenplay, google it. I want to focus on issues that aren’t quite as google-able.
Keith Harris - Actor, Producer, Screenwriter & Director
You may know him as the actor you've seen in shows like "Dopesick" or "The Walking Dead" or maybe you saw him play Robert Redford's son in "A Walk in the Woods". If you saw him as the lead in the Showtime movie "Shifting Gears", you also experienced him as a screenwriter, because he wrote that film.
This week we get to hear about screenwriting from an actor's point-of-view as well as from a screenwriter's point-of-view. Enjoy!
The rewriting process hinders many screenwriters because they start rewriting before they finish the first draft and that often results in never finishing it. Don't make that mistake. Listen and learn what the real goal of writing a first draft is.
