This week we were lucky enough to have as out guest screenwriting guru Karl Iglesias. He has written award winning books including: The 101 Habits of Highly Successful Screenwriters, Writing for Emotional Impact, and Cut to the Chase.
I discovered Karl Iglesias' work reading Writing for Emotional Impact. It really transformed the way I wrote screenplays and created a bunch of new habits that I still use today.
It was a major treat to interview Karl on the show. His work is so specific but yet broad. His one rule that can never be broken,
"Always be interesting."
I think most films coming out of Hollywood today should take that advice. Keep your audience engaged and emotionally invested. So many filmmakers and screenwriters today don't understand that basic concept.
I really asked Karl the tough questions so we could fill this episode with amazing content for you. This is one podcast your won't want to miss. Enjoy!
