First, a word from our sponsors: I am now offering a new service: so much emphasis has been given lately to the importance of the opening of your screenplay, I now offer coverage for the first twenty pages at the cost of $20.00. For those who don’t want to have full coverage on their screenplay at this time, but want to know how well their script is working with the opening pages, this is perfect for you. I’ll help you not lose the reader on page one.
Ever wonder what a reader for a contest or agency thinks when he reads your screenplay? Check out my e-book published on Amazon: Rantings and Ravings of a Screenplay Reader, including my series of essays, What I Learned Reading for Contests This Year. Only $2.99. http://ow.ly/xN31r,

My recommendations for movie watching this week in L.A. 1/8-1/15/2016
ON NETFLIX: Written by John Hodge (from a novel by Irvine Welsh) and directed by Danny Boyle, Trainspotting is a roller coaster through the lives of some Irish drug addicts as seen through the eyes of Renton (Ewan McGregor), who also narrates. Wonderfully written, electrically directed and splendidly acted, if you haven’t seen this film yet, you should. Also with Johnny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Kelly Macdonald.
