    Great interview, Jose’! One question from a rookie…

    Where can I find the components of the various genre’s?



  2. Guy says:

    Hi Bob,
    Blake’s book “Save the Cat Goes to the Movies” has a more detailed explanation of each genre, including the three key elements that define each one.
    Hope that helps!

    I would appreciate the content of this podcast much more if I could have it in text form. The reason is I’m French, I Read English easily but I have difficulties listening to people speaking, the more when they are speaking very quickly with an american accent.

    How could I get the text transcription, if possible.



  4. Really useful. Fantastic.

    Thank you for the wonderful insight. I was just curious if you were intending on further updating the podcast on iTunes? Right now there’s just the 12 Years a Slave and Frozen. Thanks.
