    The Screenwriter’s Toolbox: Character

When you answer these questions you reveal character. Obviously you can’t base every character you write on your own character traits, but you can use them as […]

    Top 100 Films Written Solely By Women

    Back in February, we made a list of Top 100 Films Directed By Women. Then we thought,”Why let the directors have all of the fun?!” and set out to make a list of films written by women. We started doing our research, and cue our lack of surprise when we discovered there are no comprehensive lists of films written SOLELY by women. […]

    Hollywood Weekly Magazine’s First Annual Film Festival

    I had the pleasure of covering the Hollywood Weekly’s first annual film festival on Saturday, September 20th at the iconic William Morris building’s Charles Aidikoff Screening room. This event paid tribute to legends in the film and TV industry at a really iconic place as Aidikoff is a renowned projectionist and a living legend in Hollywood. He has worked in […]

    Happy New Year!

    We know, it’s a little early to be wishing everyone a happy new year. However, it is the Jewish New Year, so in all fairness, we can totally get away with saying it. You should all consider this your new year too – It’s the time of the harvest. It’s about looking back on your past year of hard work and enjoying […]

    The Screenwriter’s Toolbox: Show, Don’t Tell

      Show, don’t tell. This is a reoccurring part of any discussion regarding screenwriting. Well, at least a discussion concerning the more concrete building blocks of a screenplay’s structure. But what the hell does this statement actually mean? Here’s the first thing you need to know: you don’t have to keep Show Don’t Tell at the back of your head […]

    *Script Chix Note* Attending events is one of the fun perks we get working in Hollywood. Dressing for events doesn’t typically come naturally for many writers. However, since events are part of life here, fashion is worth learning. Perception is everything. With that, we would like to introduce you to one of our newest contributors, woman about town – Vida Ghaffari.  […]

Shower Power?

The shower turns on. You step in. You reach for the soap – but – inspiration strikes! Suddenly, you’re grabbing for a nearby pen and scrap of paper to write down your script’s turning point. This – and other such “inspiration locations” were the topic of a lengthy Twitter discussion this past week. We thought about some of the places […]
