Screenplay Book Club
About This Show
We are Hunter Rising and Matt Dernlan, two guys working to write screenplays, and each week, we read and dissect feature screenplays to discuss themes, intent, characters, plot, you name it! What started as a weekly hobby to stay in contact and keep us reading has evolved into this podcast today. Screenwriting is an activity we are both very passionate about and want to excel in further. Please join us as we continue to read and progress all while having a little bit of fun.

For our twentiversary, we start our new segment Rickwatch!, go on a lot of tangents on various topics, and discuss the pilot episode to one of our favorite television shows, Pushing Daisies. Also, our PR and publicist stops by in studio! Things to Consider: How is an omniscient narrator used? Does it add or detract to the script? This episode heavily features flashbacks. How does it affect the cohesive reading experience? Ned’s abilities could make for a very boring procedural. How does the script avoid this trap?
