I have always loved movies, and have taken a number of film courses at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute just outside of Philadelphia. I recently completed a terrific class in writing scripts for films. The instructor, Marc Lapadula, teaches film studies at Yale, and taught at the U. of Pennsylvania and was educated at Oxford. Not only was his knowledge encyclopedic, he was very entertaining. We looked at the scripts for Psycho, Rebel Without a Cause, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, and others. If you want to really train yourself in being economical, learning the ability to show, rather than tell, I recommend you take a course or buy a book about screenwriting. It helps to have a software program, such as Final Draft, to help you with the complicated formatting needed to write a script. I am doing a screenplay of my OTP novel, A Lesson in Murder. I always thought my book would be a good vehicle for director Brian DePalma, since it involves murders associated with a Philadelphia Quaker school. DePalma went to Friends Central in a Philly suburb, and he obviously knows how to tell stories about murder and mayhem. Brian, are you listening?
