View Full Version : Cool Raiders of the Lost Ark Find...

The link is to a blog post/analysis of the initial transcripts for the brainstorming of Raiders of the Lost Ark with the main writer, Spielberg and Lucas. Pretty cool thought process.

Considering the number of writers and dramatic types on TL, I thought I'd pass it on. The link also has the full PDF of the transcripts (very big file)

Raiders looked deceptively simple and easy and fun, but the story required so much more thought than you can imagine. The good films always make everything look so easy but they never are. And I suspect that many aspiring writers fail because they jump into their stories with too few ideas, without brainstorming first, without outlining, and without really thinking through the story. Certainly not to this degree as we see in these story conferences. And so the question is, “Have you put as much thought into your story?”

THIS is the most important thing, IMNSHO.

dramatic types on TL

Too many women here, imo. Women always have to have some kind of drama going on...drives me insane.
