About This Show
In the process of becoming a professional filmmaker, you make a lot of mistakes along the way. For 30 minutes each week (or longer, who knows?), we'll run down all of our past mistakes, and talk about how we fixed them, so hopefully, you don't make those same mistakes.

Books Vs Scripts w/ Author Loren Molloy
7 days ago
This week on Filmmaking Sucks, Manny and Lindsay sit down with author Loren Molloy to discuss the differences between writing a book vs a script. Besides the obvious format differences, when writing a novel, the creator tends to be less restricted in their story writing, but there still must be some level of constraint. With a script, you must be stricter with your writing, but more can be left open to interpretation, so it can be left available to create on set.
We also get into the hot debate of the movies vs the novel/comics and discuss a few other subjects regarding them.
You can find Loren Molloys books at lorenmolloy.com and see her at the upcoming shows Scare A Con and Grindhouse Night at Cafe Z!

Ep. 13 - Writing Books vs Movies w/ Author Loren Molloy
“I love the movies, and when I go to see a movie that’s been made from one of my books, I know that it isn’t going to be exactly like my novel because a lot of other people have interpreted it. But I also know it has an idea that I’ll like because that idea occurred to me, and I spent a year, or a year and a half of my life working on it.”
