Writing for Low Budget Films – Marc Hamill – Joined Up #47

Have you shared the show with at least one of your friends? If not, why not?!

It’s Episode 47 and today we’ve got a great little catch-up interview with previous guest, filmmaker, Marc Hamill (not Luke Skywalker!) who has loads of practical advice about writing low-budget genre screenplays.  Wayne and Leah tell us what they’ve been up to and even find time for some  Tweets of the week too – which even has a proper jingle now!

Marc’s film ‘The Wrong Floor’ had its theatrical release in May 2016 and is now being streamed on Amazon Video Streaming service, under its new title, ‘Toxic Apocalypse’. A second feature has been financed and Marc talks about his current writing process as well as giving us loads of practical tips on writing and producing low budget films.

You can find more information on Marc’s work and upcoming projects over at Roasted Films or follow him on Twitter here.

In addition to all this screen writing goodness, you’ll find some great writing resources and articles in Tweets of The Week, which this week came courtesy of @CSlakin and @Susandfaw. They tweeted links to 8 Steps to Writing A Perfect Scene Every Time and This is How Writers Can Walk The Tightrope of Work & Life.
