    Episode 70: Not Harry Potter

    For our November episode, we’re celebrating the Halloween invasion of Thanksgiving by reading a horror short, Under the Stairs by Steven Sallie! Steven has also adapted this into a half hour film. A couple moves into a new home, but one of them is troubled by something under the stairs. Steven talks about Oklahoma, his script writing process, and his love of Ari Aster.

    Episode 68: Duck Dynasty

    Episode 68: Duck Dynasty

    We are officially BACK! Well, we never really left, but here is to our full time return to our old/new format. This week, we are reading Scout: Veteran of the Psychic War by Andrej Kukoljac. This one’s a doozy (and a ducky): a simple white feathered duck becomes a god, and annihilates all of humanity, leaving two young children as the sole survivors. We talk to Andrej about his inspiration for this story, his prior filmmaking experience, his semi-recent move to Croatia, and graffiti. Tune in, this is a good one! 


    Detours: Bojack Horseman (Netflix);  As Above, So Below (Netflix)

    Episode 67: My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Woods (Cabin in the Woods and Gunpowder Milkshake)

    Episode 67: My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Woods (Cabin in the Woods and Gunpowder Milkshake)

    This week will sadly be our last episode in this format since our other show is coming back, but we brought you a couple really fun movies to end on! We’re talking about Cabin in the Woods and Netflix’s Gunpowder Milkshake: a satirical spooky (and sometimes slimy? Maybe? Lauren’s writing the description and didn’t see this one) film and a somewhat spoofy but certainly spunky action film! You can rent Cabin in the Woods on Apple TV (or a variety of other apps) and watch Gunpowder Milkshake on Netflix. Thanks for listening, and we’ll be back to writers and new works next week!

    Episode 66: The Candyman Can Rot Your Teeth (Candyman and Tooth Fairy)

    Episode 66: The Candyman Can Rot Your Teeth (Candyman and Tooth Fairy)

    This week, we watched two films based on legendary beings (cryptids?): Tooth Fairy (2010) and Candyman (2021). The best parts of this episode are that it’s really easy to listen to while saying Candyman into a mirror five times AND that we’re talking about The Rock for the second week in a row. Thanks for listening!

    Episode 65: Pirahnas and Pirouettes (Jungle Cruise and Next Level)

    Episode 65: Pirahnas and Pirouettes (Jungle Cruise and Next Level)

    This week, we watched a brand new, long in the making film based on a beloved ride and a teen musical movie that not many people have seen (partly because it’s glitchy on Hulu). It’s Jungle Cruise starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Next Level from the company that produced another Green Light featured film, No Escape Room. You can watch Jungle Cruise in theaters or on Disney+ with premiere access, and you can watch Next Level for free with Amazon Prime or on Hulu (if it lets you get past the first minute). Thanks for listening!

Great people talking about great scripts

Who else is doing like Green Light? It’s so entertaining to hear Jackson and Lauren talk about their lives and new scripts. The podcast is also a great way to uplift and give a voice to new screenwriters too. If you’re looking for a podcast to put in the background while in traffic or while doing busy work, this is it!

LJL COOL ,

Love hearing your guesses!

Also love when you get mad when one of your faves gets voted out. 😄
