Brian Koppelman on WTF

Posted by Tom Brogan on Friday, January 30, 2015
I enjoyed screenwriter Brian Koppelman's appearance on WTF with Marc Maron. The discussion over the relevance of Koppelman's attempt at stand-up was an entertaining exchange.

Here's an interview with Koppleman in the New Yorker.

“I’ve seen so many people sitting at coffee shops in L.A. reading ‘Save the Cat’ or Robert McKee’s ‘Story,’ ” he says, “And those are classic books. But they make you think only one thing is commercial, and commerce creates barriers. They think this writing is about cracking the code. My entire mission here is to say that, if you think there is a code to begin with, then you’ll never really create much of value.”

This is one of his 6 second screenwriting tips on Vine.
