With last week's news that home video stopped its free-fall and actually grew a little bit in 2012, John and Craig discuss whether studios might ease off on one-step deals and other development austerity measures.

But while one bloodbath has been averted, this week's batch of Three Page Challenges is particularly gruesome but also pretty good.

Craig is too stubborn to admit that John's workflow for generating both starred and clean PDFs is vastly smarter and better, but since John writes these episode blurbs, he gets the last word. Victory!

John also has a shocking announcement that changes everything: He's become a single-spacer.

All this plus Craig's encomium to his new car in this week's Scriptnotes.

SPECIAL NOTE: We'd love to know a bit more about you, so if you could please answer a few questions at johnaugust.com/survey, we'd be super-grateful.
