Sitting next to a seasoned screenwriter to watch how they execute a scene can work wonders for a writer. That's why I'm sharing this post. From BoingBoing contributor Joe Sabia created a video for Vanity Fair that ended up circling the 'net fast and hard, as screenwriter Emily Carmichael whipped out a sci-fi scene in only seven minutes.


See a Hollywood Screenwrier Write a Scene in 7 Minutes

It's a fascinating watch. For me, watching and listening to how another writers made choices not only gave me permission to write freely, but it opened my eyes to the may ways a scene can be written.

It's worth the watch. Frankly, I'd love to see this done with various writers and genres.

Based on the video, do you write the way she does? What do you do that helps you flush out a scene?
