Craig and John ret-con the Austin Film Festival, placing themselves on panels in which they didn't participate. It's a chance to give the answers they would have given without the bother of being asked (or listening to other people's opinions).

For example, Terry Rossio's seminar on "The Throw" his term for how you end a scene was presumably terrific. We didn't attend, but it's fun to spitball what we would have said about this interesting and under-discussed aspect of screenwriting.

Other topics discussed this week include:

  • Setiquette
  • Kyle Killen's secret shower
  • Videogame storytelling
  • Amazon Studios
  • Pilots vs. presentations

Happy Halloween, everyone. Stay safe and dry.
