Episode 71: “Shakespeare, Outlaws and ‘Re-Imaginings’…”

Welcome everyone…

This week, Cheryl and I chat about Sons of Anarchy and how you can take a very old idea and update it to a modern world. We also chat about the key components of what makes a Shakespeare play and how you in can weave them in to today’s movies . Plus we check in with Cheryl’s intervention.

Our song this week is Motley Crue’s “Wild Side” cause it kinda fits with the whole “biker mentality.” Enough of that though, let’s get to the show! Enjoy!

Put some cheese on that cracker!

Episode 70: “Little Studio Strikes Back, By the Numbers and Cheryl’s Intervention…”

Welcome to another episode of Breakin’ In.

This week we update you on the Little Studio Films situation (don’t worry, it’s quick) then it’s off to chat about writing broken down by the numbers and we figure out a new way to get Cheryl to get her pages done. Plus, we have a special guest… my mom!

To honor her visit, our song this week is The Lonely Island’s “Mama.” But enough about that, let’s get to the show!

Put some cheese on that cracker!

Episode 69: “Breakin’ In with John and Lotti Knowles… Again!”

Hey everyone, welcome back to another episode of Breakin’ In!

This week Cheryl and I sit down with John and Lotti Knowles writer, producer and director of Chastity Bites! It’s a great conversation about the fact that your film is never really done. Instead of me telling you, let’s just get to the show and listen!

Put some cheese on that cracker!

 

Episode 68: “Cliches, Devices and Formulas…”

Welcome everyone!

Make it your own!

That’s pretty much the message of this episode. This week Cheryl and I sit down and chat about the devices that really get readers immersed into a story. We chat about not fearing the cliche, but embracing it and turning it into your own.

To celebrate that fact, this week’s song is “Down with the Sickness” by Disturbed as done by Richard Cheese. Now…

Let’s get to the show! Put some cheese on that cracker!

Episode 67: “Characters, Pacing and Setups & Payoffs…”

Welcome to another episode of Breakin’ In!

This week, Cheryl and I are joined by Alex and we chat about Chastity Bites, the snooze-a-thon that is the current season of The Walking Dead and we couldn’t help it… Little Studio Films pops up again.

But enough of that… let’s get to the show…

Put some cheese on that cracker!

Episode 66: “Meeting Preps, Chastity Bites and More Little Studio Films Bullshit…”

Episode 65: “Breakin’ In with Jeffrey Reddick!”

Welcome to another episode of Breakin’ In!

This week we had the awesome pleasure of sitting down with Final Destination creator, Jeffrey Reddick. Jeffrey’s breaking in story is somewhat legendary in Hollywood and we promise you, you won’t be disappointed. We chat about the Final Destination series, nerd out over horror, talk about his other films (Tamara and Day of the Dead) and just have an overall fascinating conversation.

But enough about that… let’s just get to the show!

till next week…

 

Episode 64: “Nothing but Announcements…”

Welcome!

Short and sweet this week people. Didn’t even throw in music!

Surprisingly, we just didn’t really have anything to talk about, mainly because we’re swamped with the latest script… but we didn’t want to leave you hanging and we’re super excited about next week’s show as we have a very special guest.

Tune in to find out all about it!

till next week…

Episode 62: “Beginnings and Endings…”

We’re back!

Sorry, totally didn’t mean to take a week off, but sometimes stuff happens. This week, Cheryl and I talk about Pilots and Finales.

We took the time off to watch some of the best pilots and finales and TV history. It’s quite an amazing experiment and I can’t recommend it enough if you want to write for TV.

That being said, let’s get to the show!

till next week…

There are a million ways into the industry, here's one of them.
