The Story of a Screenwriter: Script 0, Part 2

(Note: The thing I was looking for to post today is inexplicably missing from all my hard drives and a hard copy is nowhere to be found. So apparently all copies of that (in my possession) as well as the actual copies of the script I’m about to tell you about are just gone. Like nitrate prints from 1905.)

To recap:

Last time – high school, it sucked, I was bored, fucked around, senior year, bullshit, Mr. Warren, English, Macbeth, boring, CSI, suggests I write Macbeth as a CSI episode. Ding.

Enter CSI: Macbeth.

Isn’t this where we came in?

It was actually a genius idea on Mr. Warren’s part that I write Macbeth as a CSI epsiode, because, if I hadn’t read the play before (which I’m sure my homeworks could probably confirm), I certainly was going to now. That weekend I went home and actually went back to read the play.

I repeat. I went back, while we, the class were doing homework for act III, and actually read acts I and II. Doesn’t sound like me at all, does it? Well, that’s exactly me when I have a reason to. (more…)

Pic of the Day: “How can you read this? There’s no pictures!” “Well, some people use their imagination.”
