Have you ever sat in a script notes session using every muscle in your body to keep your eyes from rolling? Or mentally diagramming different — and creative — ways to take out the people in the room? Or perhaps doing everything you can to suppress the urge to stand up and shout, “No, Mother Teresa cannot be a man!”
Notes, sadly, are the bane of a writer’s existence and they’ve been with us always… one can imagine even Sophocles got notes (“Deus ex Machina is so pre-500 B.C.”) “Studio Script Notes” envisions the kinds of notes executives could have (or maybe even did) given to some of cinema’s masterpieces and/or most famous movies. Enjoy!
