Writing A Screenplay From Start To Finish by Zeke Zelker

Film Courage: Any advice on screenwriting books? Like what’s the best screenwriting book you’ve read?

Zeke Zelker, Writer/Director/Producer of the transmedia project BILLBOARDI think Syd Fieldis still probably the “Bible,” as the first one I’ve ever read.

I write everyday still to this day. I find writing very enjoyable although it’s hellacious at the same time. Because I know that’s the only part of the process that is solely me. Everything else is pretty much collaborative and it’s give and take.

When you are writing you don’t have to give or take generally. I also take a long time. It’s funny, I will think about a script for at least a year or two before I ever commit anything to paper because what I do first is I know the story I want to tell and then I build out the characters. I have to build out the characters so well that they can end up just talking to each other and then I can literally vomit out a script in days is generally how it works for me and then I do rewrites from there.

But also I only create characters that I will want to play as an actor…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
