“The Relationship Between Your Story & the Audience w/ Scott Smith”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
In a very exciting screenwriting conversation, we talk with writer Scott Smith on the creative process. We discuss trusting your voice and trusting the audience’s intelligence to understand you.
POINT #1: “WRITE, WRITE, WRITE!”
-From one script to the next to the next, there’s new things to learn and exponential growth to be found. You’ll always have a new idea, so keep writing!
POINT #2: “FOLLOW YOUR VOICE, FOLLOW WHAT’S EXCITING”
-We often inhibit ourselves with thoughts of what we “should” write or take on — the answer is to do what is most exciting to you. Maybe the next thing is niche and indie or maybe it will be something more commercial. Either way, you’re following your heart.
POINT #3: “THE AUDIENCE KNOWS STORY IN THEIR VEINS”
-Trust the audience’s ability to understand your message. We’ve been told story in so many different medium our entire lives. Let the audience figure it out, they’ll be glad you gave them the opportunity.
