Let's Write is about a simple question, "what if?" To which we respond, "I don't know, let's find out!" On this podcast, we take an idea for one of our "dream movies," and break it down from an in-depth storytelling standpoint. Over the course of the episode, we'll do our best to take a serious swing at figuring out each step of the story, and at the end of it, we'll hopefully have a pretty compelling idea for a script. Then, we'll turn that idea into a fully fleshed out treatment, and post it on our website! New episodes every Tuesday!

Hailed as one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 20 Podcasts” (Issue #1345 - Jan. 9, 2015), celebrated genre filmmakers Adam Green (HATCHET, FROZEN, DIGGING UP THE MARROW) and Joe Lynch (EVERLY, WRONG TURN 2, KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM) host this informative and inspiring filmmaking podcast that has been called “audio film school” by both aspiring and working artists alike. Showcasing a different celebrity or other accomplished industry professional each week, Adam and Joe lead extremely candid discussions that focus on each guest’s individual journey through Hollywood and their comical, heartbreaking, and brutally honest tales from the trenches that reveal far more insight about the business than any film class could ever offer.
