The Road to #YFF11 (Yorkton Film Festival) 1-Day-to-Go: IAN JOHNSTON

Q: Glad to see you don’t hold back any punches. Do you have any advice for other writers who may be considering entering the CSSC next year?
A: Don’t talk to me about your script ideas. Put it on the page, dammit. If it’s in your head, it don’t exist. Everyone has an idea for a script. You become special when you put pen to paper.

The Road to #YFF11 (Yorkton Film Festival) 12-Days-to-Go: EVAN JOBB

I first entered because I was just curious to see if I was any good. It’s not like it cost a lot to enter, the hardest part is probably waiting from January till March to find out the top 50.
Also before you enter, rewrite and edit and then rewrite and edit some more. Turn the script on its head and see if it looks better, take it out of the dark and examine it in the light, look at all possibilities until you know that what you have written is the best it can be. And don’t stop till the deadline. You could argue that you should submit early so that your script isn’t lost in the flood of last minute script, but I submitted all my scripts on the deadline. If I submit earlier, then I have just thrown away editing time. Edit all the way up to the deadline (and if you’re still not done, there is always the January deadline). Continue reading

But I also loved the film Sign Language by Oscar Sharp that won last year’s Virgin media shorts. A great little film if you haven’t seen it! Continue reading
