ScreenwritingU had a pretty good teleconference last Sunday with Chris Soth discussing his Mini-Movie Method. Basically, it's a way of breaking your script into several "mini-movies" in order to give the story a cohesive and concrete structure. They've posted a link to an mp3 of the interview here. Even if you know this kind of stuff already, it's not a bad refresher course...

|Set after a zombie uprising, treated zombies are rehabilitated back into society.|
Came across this trailer for a BBC zombie drama that aired in February. Zombies aren’t at the top of my favorite movie monster list, but if the premise is interesting enough, I usually give it a shot. As much as I enjoy shows like The Walking Dead, it’s certainly refreshing to see a different take on the zombie apocalypse story. Anyway, I did a little googling and found three scripts over at the BBC Writersroom. There’s also a blog entry from writer/creator Dominic Mitchell.

The Nicholl final deadline came and went last week without my entry... I can be a bit of a perfectionist at times, but I trust my gut. Something wasn’t working. I finally realized that inserting crazy twists and reveals into the story was ultimately doing more harm than good. Instead of working on something like character development, I made a rookie mistake.
Anyway, there’s still the Austin Film Festival. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make that deadline...
