Many of you may know, my buddy Spencer and I started a blog a few years ago called Daily Pre-Script-tion.
We attempted to write a one-page script every day for a year (schemes!). We were unsuccessful at this attempt. We were able to accomplish 100 each. That's like two feature screenplays.
The experiment was extremely fun and exciting. We based each script around a particular theme, usually a picture, video or other random craziness. We also had guest writers on Fridays. The Pen script was my favorite to write.
As you might expect, this practice became very tiresome. The experience was valuable, we learned a great deal about deadlines and coming up with material quickly, but we just couldn't keep up the momentum. We learned how tiring it can be to format and fix a blog post every single day. It was made especially difficult when traveling or not being near a computer.
Although the experience ended suddenly and the blog was all but abandoned, the overall lasting effects were tremendous. We grew as writers.
I have officially opened the blog back up. The dust has been removed and we are now going to have new content.
Check it out for more details and read the first in a long line of great scripts to come.
You are more than welcome to help us out by reading and commenting, or if you feel you have the chops - contributing your own scripts. (Just email me if you're interested).
