Thanks to Shaula & yourself for this.
Lethal Weapon as urban western?? Never heard or read Shane mention that before, but it makes complete sense.
Also, the notion of writing your trailer before you embark on a script really cuts to the core. 2 or 3 pages to establish what your movie’s really about… such an economical way to solve what’s a recurring and major problem.
I second that thanks. This was great.
The trailer idea is fantastic. And his simple explanations for creating suspense; basically putting words into some malleable thoughts.
