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.
