I Hated Outlining Screenplays Until I Joined A Screenwriting Group by Kenneth Castillo

(Watch the video interview on Youtube here)

Film Courage: When you’re starting a story, are you starting with an outline?

Kenneth Castillo, Filmmaker: I didn’t always do that. I actually learned how to do that recently. One of the best creative decisions I made recently was joining a writing group. I was in a bubble for a very long time but it’s also hard to find a writing group where everyone knows how to give notes and knows how to take notes. I was very lucky because what we have is very unique and people within that writing group understand that too. I’ve gotten jobs out of this writing group where we are kind of looking out for each other (there’s only eight of us).

I was the type that would just turn in pages and they would say “Well we don’t know where the story is going? Can you just outline it for us?” And I’m like “No, I don’t outline”…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
