Indie Film Weekly 12.1.16: The Secret to a Great Screenplay & Hollywood's Math Problem

Dec. 1, 2016

In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we ask why movie financiers are ignoring box office numbers, and divulge how math might help you tell the best stories on screen. No Film School co-hosts Liz Nord, Jon Fusco, and Emily Buder discuss recent studies on the six emotional arcs of storytelling and the surprising relationship between director age and box office returns, along with the Gotham Independent Film Award winners, and how DJI continues to launch great new drones while GoPro’s drones continue to fall out of the sky. Tech writer Charles Haine joins us to bring the latest gear news, and as always, we update you on upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
