I Wish That I Knew Then What I Know Now

If you’re an active screenwriter, an aspiring screenwriter, a storyteller, a director, an editor, a copywriter, a freelance anything, and/or just a fan of movies/filmmaking/story, stop reading this and start listening to Scriptnotes.

Oh. You’re still here. Why are you still reading this? Are you digging for a little more info before you commit to listening to an ad-free podcast?

OK. Here’s the deal.

When I look back on my life at this point, I see squandered opportunity after squandered opportunity with regards to screenwriting. I had people going out of their way to help me, nurture me, guide me… and I blew it. And along the way, I blew through tons of money and, most importantly, TIME. I can only wonder what it would be like if everything I’ve learned from John & Craig over the past five years of listening I knew about 10-12 years ago. If so, I wouldn’t have made every single awful decision I made at that time. And the mistakes you make early… they can cripple and derail you for life.

So, if you really want to give your dreams their best chance of success (or just be a smarter about film, story, and life), don’t repeat my mistakes. And if you really listen and pay attention to John & Craig (and their guests), you won’t.

So, again, please, stop reading… and start listening to Scriptnotes.

Scriptnotes, lapping the competition for years.

I’m a long time Scriptnotes listener who recently branched out to other screenwriting podcasts. John and Craig are easily lapping every single screenwriting podcast out there, except for one.

In a world filled with podcasts hosts of questionable creative authority and intentions, Scriptnotes is as authentic and as valuable as it gets.

Required listening

I've been listening to this poscast for years. It's probably the best podcast about working in the film business out there. I recommend it to everyone I know who wants to pursue working in entertainment.
