Screenwriter Studio Notes: Do’s and Don’ts by Lee Jessup

Watch the video interview on Youtube here

“It’s usually very easy to tell when a writer is resistant to a note. When the writer is instantly defensive. When the writer becomes sarcastic or passive-aggressive and there’s a lot of passive-aggression that can come out in a note session.”

“For a writer getting notes, try not to dismiss the note giver because ultimately all that does is sabotage the relationship because what you’re saying is, yes you took the time, you did the work, you read the script and now you’re giving me your thoughts but I’m going to dismiss them because suddenly something about you makes you not good enough to give those notes.”
