Film school

This is what I imagine film school to be. But I don't agree with any statements about writer's not having any business writing stories that they enjoy. You can write one of those stories with your perspective/ ability and the product will be familiar and new.

Quality podcast

One of the best casts about screenwriting available. — my only know is the sound quality of the Wine episodes.
