Podcast Episode 44: The UK Scriptwriters Survival Guide



In this new podcast episode myself and Danny Stack talk about our new book we've just finished writing. It will be out soon and sums up just about EVERYTHING in the podcast SO FAR in many ways. It's basic question is; how can you earn a living as a writer? This book, the UK Scriptwriters Survival Guide, isn't about how to write, its about how to be a writer!

In this episode we discuss our favourite parts of the book and our top advice - as well as how to overcome knock backs to your career - how do you survive and thrive?

More about the book soon, when its released. Podcast listeners will of course get a special price. In the meantime, here's an extract from the introduction, so you know what it is about...
This guide is less about the craft of scriptwriting and more about being a scriptwriter, a working scriptwriter. A writer who earns a crust day-to-day. A writer who pays the rent AND still finds time to work on new ideas, and that next amazing spec script.
We’ve all got books on our shelves already about the craft of being a writer and the different techniques and structures you may use. We don’t cover those.
There’s also looks of books about rare occurrences of someone selling it big. This book is about being part of the hard working majority, not a one-off fluke. If you picked up a book about investing your money, you’d be rightly disappointed if the advice inside was “win the lottery”. There will be no ‘sell a script for a million dollars on your first go’ nonsense here. This book is about long term success through graft.

Second free 4K light leak download - film burn / glow style

Here is my second 4K light leak - available for free download (and also you can watch it it in 4K / UHD on YouTube)

This, along with the rest, will all be collected on a special page, so bookmark it.




These fade up from black making them ideal to be used to transition from one clip to the next in your edit timeline. They have a 'film burn' feel to them. 7 in total in this one download. Speed them up and reverse them for more variation if you need it!

Download here (176MB) - http://mfi.re/watch/drmu7we8lqb4osq/4K_WarmGlows.mp4

If you are using these clips for a commercial project with a budget then get in touch. I make the leaks free for non-commercial use (short films etc). Creative Commons details on the main page.

If HD leaks are of interest to you (under the same conditions) then I have loads here.

If you want to do me a favour because of all this cool stuff - that would be great too. Cheers. A few suggestions...


If you are super kind and get something out of using these then please donate a small amount via the button below...

If you want to do me a favour anyway - that would be great too. Cheers. A few suggestions.
