Stephen Tronicek is a screenwriter/director/ based in St. Louis. His screenplay, “Pieces,” was the Runner-Up in Horror in the Script Pipeline First Look Competition. I just want to make good movies.
I can’t tell you the number of times I have been told by different teachers that I should keep the direction off the page. That I am just here to write the story. That never made sense to me.
As a screenwriter, you can’t just ask an audience to go along with anything, you have to meet them halfway.
The most constructive filmmaker for learning screenwriting for me was Terrence Malick. To anybody who knows what any of that means, it might sound like an oxymoron.
