Screenplay Book Club

By Matt Dernlan and Hunter Rising

What do your favorite movies look like on paper? Do characters still read well without the actors behind them? Does the action read clear? Does the story even 'story' well?! Matt Dernlan and Hunter Rising ask all these questions and more each week on Screenplay Book Club. Every Thursday, the two amateur screenwriters break down a film script for its themes, principles, and a few things to consider all while peppering in jokes along the way.
