Rank #1: The Craft of Screenwriting

Podcast cover
Read more

"...As a screenwriter, you need to see, hear and feel everything.

And this is really the hardest part, because we have this urge to finish. And that urge to finish makes it really hard to actually see, hear and feel everything.

We want to put a band aid on it.

If you’ve ever had a fight with a loved one, you have probably had the same urge, “I want the fight to end.” And the desire for the fight to end doesn’t allow you to actually see, hear and feel what is actually going on. So you just keep glossing over it.

And what happens is our little A.D.D. minds want us to escape, “okay over here…no, no, look over here, no, no, no look over here.” Because the other thing about seeing, hearing and feeling everything is it is scary. It is hard and it is scary..."

Rank #2: FIX YOUR PITCH!

Podcast cover

...Recently, we’re starting to see a shift with original movies like Get Out, La La Land, Manchester By The Sea, Moonlight and Arrival not only winning awards, but also hugely exceeding box office expectations. We’re also starting to see a trickle up effect, as companies like Amazon and Netflix have started entering the feature film market-- reinvigorating both writers and producers for the potential of a renaissance in feature films that can mirror the one in TV.

Which is why Beauty and the Beast’s success scared the crap out of so many big budget writers and producers, especially on the cusp of what seemed like a potential tipping point in the Hollywood model...

Rank #3: PODCAST – Arrival: The Writer’s Journey

Podcast cover
Read more

Our language, and the metaphors of our films, have the power to change us.

They change us as writers and they change us as audience members. They shape the conversation and the way we see our world. They shape our trust in our institutions or our distrust of them. They shape the way that we see heroism and the way that we see cowardice. They shape the way we see inclusion or exclusion, the way we deal with our fears and open our curiosity.

The language that we use as screenwriters changes our audience. And the wider the audience for your movie, the more people you have the ability to affect. That's why we as screenwriters, particularly if we are writing movies with mass appeal. If we are writing action movies, horror movies, thrillers, sci-fi's, fantasies, romantic comedies, and of course television, we have such a responsibility, because the language that we use as we write changes us. And the language that we present to our audience changes them.

Our movies teach people how to live and how to interact with the unknowns of their lives.

In this way every movie is a political movie.

Rank #4: PODCAST – Build Out Your Script: Choosing The Right Idea To Write

Podcast cover
Read more

There's a famous story about M. Knight Shyamalan in the process of writing The Sixth Sense. Somewhere around Shyamalan’s fourth draft of The Sixth Sense, a movie called Casper came out, and Shyamalan famously threw out his draft, called his agent, and said "Well, Casper the Friendly Ghost came out so there goes that."

Fortunately, he had good people around him who forced him to keep writing. But what's really interesting is that it wasn't until somewhere around the tenth draft of The Sixth Sense that Shyamalan realized what the idea really was.

You see, in that early draft, the truth was, Shyamalan was right. All he was really doing at that point was a live action update of Casper the Friendly Ghost. Because, at that point, Shyamalan had not yet realized that Bruce Willis's character was dead...

Rank #6: HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR SCREENPLAY IS DONE?

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the hardest things in screenwriting is knowing when you’re finished. Because art is so subjective, there’s always something that can be added, changed, improved or rewritten. Which is why, in the arts, we often don’t get the same feeling of completion that an accountant gets. Or that a salesperson gets. Or that a burger flipper gets. There’s no clear place where it is truly done where all the criteria have been met.

So if we’re going to be successful, we need a different way of evaluating ourselves. We need a different type of criteria. In this podcast, Award Winning Screenwriter Jacob Krueger teaches you how to know when your screenplay is done, so you can build the successful career that you are looking for.

Adam shot a feature film, New Low, for $2000 and ended up a official selection of the Sundance Film Festival in 2010. He then managed to parlay that success into Paperback, a second feature at a much higher budget, which premiered at the Austin Film Festival this year.

If you are a film student here at Jacob Krueger Studio, you know it’s an extraordinarily exciting time to be a filmmaker. We are seeing more and more people like Adam, who are making their own material. These writers have stopped waiting for people to say “yes” to them, and instead started saying “yes” to themselves, developing great screenplays and going out and shooting them.

Chris sat down with Adam and asked him a bunch of questions about his process, about what it means to be an indie filmmaker, and how he managed to shoot a film on $2000. He got some very interesting responses, particularly about some unexpected benefits of shooting micro budget, compared to his experience with a higher budget production...

One of the truly interesting things about Inception is that its structure is actually based upon the principles of hypnosis.

Why is this important to you as a writer? Because as writers we all need organizing principles around which to structure our character’s journey…

There are two kinds of horror movies. There's the basic gross-out horror movie where it's really just about creating a progression of increasingly horrible images and getting a high body count. These movies have a very simple formula: establish a bunch of characters and a bunch of relationships and then, one by one, kill those characters off with the greatest efficiency and bloodiness. All the creative work in those movies really just goes into creating the most horrible of horrors. It’s about making the most disgusting, horrible, frightening “this is going to haunt me in my dreams, I can't un-see that” kind of moment.

But the best horror movies try to do something much bigger. The best horror movies are either psychological commentaries or political commentaries or sometimes both...

Rank #18: PODCAST – Everybody Wants Some: Structure Without Structure – Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

This week we’re going to be looking at Richard Linklater's new film Everybody Wants Some. Richard Linklater has called this film a spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused. He has also referred to it as a sequel to Boyhood, his brilliantly structured (although very unusually structured) film, which basically ends right before this film begins: at the end of boyhood and the beginning of college.

Everybody Wants Some picks up the baton where Boyhood left off, and centers around a college baseball player who is just starting college, and the other guys on the team, in the days leading up to the first day of his freshman year. And though the main character may be different from the character in Boyhood, and while the structure may be entirely different than the structure of Boyhood, confined to a few days, rather than evolving over many years, Linklater is once again building a sprawling, multicharacter journey around young kid in a different kind of family, at defining point of discovering his identity and what gives meaning in his life.

But the question remains: is Everybody Wants Some actually a good movie?

Because Everybody Wants Some basically does nothing that a movie is supposed to do. It has virtually no plot; In fact most of the film is simply spent watching a bunch of bros hang out. It’s built mostly around dialogue, much like a play, rather than the action and images we’re used to seeing as the primary building blocks in movies. It kind-of has a discernible main character (it certainly seems to center around Jake( but the truth of the matter is, Jake doesn't really drive most of the action.

In fact, most of the structure isn't really driven at all in the way we traditionally expect, with one character chasing a particularly challenging goal against increasingly difficult obstacles. Instead, it's driven by random events like, “Let's go dancing,” “Let's go to baseball practice,” “Let's pick up some chicks.” Which feels a hell of a lot like the free-flowing structure of any respectable drunken freshman’s introduction to college, but not much like the version of that story we’re used to seeing in a movie.

The overall effect is that we’re watching (and for many people, enjoying) a film that seems to have very little structure at all. And this is not because Richard Linklater can't do structure. Because if you've seen Boyhood, you've seen a film that survives upon its rock solid structure as it jumps from year to year to year in a young boy’s life.

Rank #19: PODCAST – Tangerine: All You Need is a Want and an iPhone!

Tangerine is a brilliant illustration of just how little you need to actually succeed as a screenwriter or a filmmaker. To make a successful film you do not need millions of dollars. To make a successful film you do not need years and years and years of experience. To make a successful film you do not need to follow the rules or follow a formula. To make a successful film there are really only two things you need: You need a Want, and you need an iPhone.

Tangerine was shot entirely on an iPhone 5s. And not only does it look beautiful, but it also tells a compelling story, taking two characters on a profound journey of change. And, though it doesn't have the most complicated plot in the world, the simplicity and the drive of its main characters' wants provide it with a rock solid structure...
