Video: Lessons From the Screenplay

Posted in Videos

I’ve said this before, but I enjoy the educational things you can find on YouTube. You can learn to build something. To bake something. To discover the nuances of a film from the subtle aspects of screenwriting as an art form, by listening to someone wax poetic about their favorite writer. It’s fun, useful information!

In the series Lessons from the Screenplay, the focus on unique screenwriting choices help you see films in a new perspective. Or maybe just a sharper look at the same one, but it’s very insightful.

This outcropping of Patreon funded content on YouTube is one that I completely agree with. There seems to be a focus on infotainment as a general rule, and I can’t believe there aren’t floods of things like this for other aspects of the arts. Myself, I’ve learned as much, or more, than I’ve learned in any film studies class, and it only took a few 10-15min videos. It may not be useful to everyone, but it is at the very least interesting, and I urge you to check it out.
