THE CINESTORY PODCAST: Four Quadrants

This month we ask the question, 'What are the four quadrants and why do they matter?'

Recorded at CineStory 2012, in this session executives Jessica Julius and Leah Estrin discuss what it takes to write for all four quadrants, what works in family films, what doesn't and why. 

THE CINESTORY PODCAST: CONCEPT

This month on the podcast, we share with you a discussion about the most fundamental element of a screenplay: its concept.

Recorded at CineStory 2012, in this session pro writers Mark Fergus and Philip Eisner discuss what makes for a great concept. Between them, Mark and Philip have been responsible for films such as CHILDREN OF MEN, IRON MAN and EVENT HORIZON.
