The First 15 »


D-girl extraordinaire Carter Swan and journeyman scribe Philip Eisner deconstruct the first 15 pages of your screenplay and tell you why it sucks. Also: racial epithets, meandering rants, non-sequiturs, the inside scoop on how movies really get made, and occasional nudity.


Bi-Weekly, Thursday at 5PM PST!
