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

    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!

I want to write a screenplay!

This is fantastic information. I’ve written a couple of books and now I want to write a screenplay. While I’m still catching up on all of the episodes, I feel like I have enough to get started with that first draft!
