Go Into the Story

Good screenwriters know how important it is to know every trick of the trade there is (even if they do not use them all).  Go Into The Story ditches all the fancy graphics and cluttering advertisements and opts for the bare essentials of screenwriting.  Blogger Scott Myers, a screenwriting professor at the University of North Carolina, posts advice and how-to-guides daily to aid young writers in the creative process.  The blog also sports an extensive list of other great websites and blogs that serve as great resource as well.

Film Riot

Film Riot is a video tutorial site with a comedic twist.  Host Ryan Connolly covers every subject from how to make a music video, to using CGI, to how to cast your film.  This site is a delightful departure from the typical monotonous tutorials usually found on the net as the humorous videos take a narrative structure making them actually enjoyable to watch.
