  • I Just Can't Wait to Be... Queen?

    Hi, Concept!

    A little while back, the wonderful Shaula Evans at The Black Board posted a great update based off one of our Twitter feeds. We thought we’d take a minute and expound a bit on the high concept idea – and some of the ways we’ve found to come up with one. We’ve all heard the basic pitch: It’s like The […]

    Roundup: 5 Best Movie Scores to Write To

    Following up on last week’s post, we reached out to our writer friends again for their favorite movie scores to write to.

    Dear Script Chix: What TV Spec Should I Write?

      Dear Script Chix, I’ve written a few original TV pilots and a feature, but I keep hearing that no one will want to represent me without a spec. I realize it’s good to have one in the repertoire, so I’m taking the plunge. There are just so many shows out there…how do I chose what spec to write?! Signed, […]

    MeetUp.com for Screenwriters

    Most screenwriters dread networking events. The very thought of having to weave your way through a group of people you don’t know while balancing an expensive cocktail isn’t for everyone — especially if you tend to spill things. You hope for a friendly face in the crowd that will start-up the conversation, but that doesn’t always happen. Yes, when things […]

    Top Female Slashers

    Hollywood is and always has been a boys club. It’s notorious for perpetuating female stereotypes and leaving the women in the industry to be looked upon as eye candy. But there are a lot of actresses who aren’t content with only being the leading lady on-screen and leaving the business to the men. These are what we affectionately refer to […]

    What About Bob…McKee?

    When I first saw the movie  “Adaptation” eons ago back in London, 2 things crossed my mind: 1)    Why is Nick Cage acting so nutty? I mean, this whole “writer’s block” thing can’t be that bad can it? Come on lad, cheer up… it’s only writing. 2)    Whoa that Robert McKee character in that auditorium scene is MEAN. Good thing I […]

    Top 100 Movies of All Time… By Female Directors

    Everyone has lists. AFI has lists. Spike Lee has lists. Sight & Sound has lists. But in all this listmaking, more often than not, female directors get shafted. Sure, some of that is the typical Academy frustration – that old dudes (or old straight white dudes, much of the time) are the majority of voters on many of the most […]

Top 5 Screenwriting Software Picks

At Script Chix, we receive a number of scripts from all over the world – some via email, some printed. The one thing that never changes with a professional script, however, is format. Format matters, and, as a result, anything we see in Times New Roman/MS Word is bound to get a negative review from us – whether for professional […]
