Orange Kasdan go on Chapo Lawrence Kasdan go on Chapo William Goldie go on come down less. You're alright Jordan. Yes Louis asking another question. Sure I know your have middle grades level readings that true me he does. Daddy me does have that. What Book Series would you recommend for your fellow middle grade read? Yeah well I I will say that. I picked up The first book in the Arlo finch series. Because of my regard for the Great John August. This is true regard. I've received this regard I this regard has been reported to me without without even John August being there and this thing is spectacular it is a fun adventure and it is really funny. Imagine a books funny. That is not that right well. Those collections of deep thoughts thoughts by Jack Handy. The ARLO finch. It was great and it is funny it and it is funny in the way that the characters are so specific and well drawn drawn clearly from your childhood that you you feel like you know them so well. So they're like goofing around just makes you laugh by by the by the time you get to the halfway point in the book a delight to read. I gotta get a son so I can read him. The finch But CAN I. Can I ask you a question. John Now I actually also middle grades level reader but while I speak English I read read only Swedish and you recommend the book for me is available in Swedish just for people like you. Wow Wow says available in thirteen languages so whatever yup todd top four the ones could ashley sort of like halfway kind of read. The French copies really good German That's really could pretend to rate another Spanish copy of arlift interest is crazy. There's not like the Spanish publishing market isn't big enough to support support middle grade title so We're still looking for a Spanish publisher if you're listening to this program and you're Spanish publishers. Like maybe there should publish are could be talking could you. Because we we've got Russia and we've got Turkish. We've got a lot of Spanish. Do you think that guy who is a popular Spanish comedy podcast. Los Mato criticos seacoast. That guy could occur. Hook John Up. I mean it's a good place to start yeah place Tummy. We got a Spanish show. Business Santana stick. There's a new. ARLO finch book. Oh coming out Jordan's uncle is LP. Lean Nice threat works out. Well yeah out now so it. By the time this podcast drops tops. It'll be in bookstores across North America. And then eventually across other countries and a yeah. I'm really happy with it. It's it was weird writing a trilogy and so I started this out as a trilogy. I sold as a trilogy so I was. I had to turn in a book. A year. Book comes out of the year. It was a lot but it's also just a great experience to really be able to start darter project knowing that it's going to be three books that plan for three books because as a screenwriter sometimes you the sequel. Sometimes you make a third movie but you can't ever plan on that here right definitely new like these are the three books. Here's how I can lay out plot among these collective homes. I was also point out when you said it's A. It's it's a dream to write a trilogy. I said Yeah like I knew. I told her a lot of trilogies. Yeah we can meet Mr Trilogy over here and about knots and trilogies. Yeah Yeah I did a lot more of a deck log man. Yeah absolutely. That's true ten or nothing ten or I walk. That's why I say that every project I I remember long medium post about sort of what I learned writing a trilogy because I went into this sort of not knowing anything about books so I did a podcast series called launch which is about the the birth of the book and sort of how the book came to be But now that I finished all three books I realized that I didn't know what I was doing and that I had a whole plan. Dan I like this is all the pop which we're going to get to. And here's the series villain and by the time. I was in the second bucket. Oh that's not the villain at all and a whole new character and things stuff you just can't discover discovered until you're actually in the middle of it and so if you want to just I think people tend to approach trilogies assuming that like Oh you had this whole plan for exactly. I was going to be in it. There's a map that you followed and it really wasn't that at all and just try hopefully pop some of the illusions about how much a person creates. The thing actually knows about it when they start John. You've written a lot of films. I've only written one but I had a very similar experience where I'm writing and I'm writing and I'm writing the whole time I'm writing. I'm thinking thinking this is a movie about where ultimately the villain is planning permit. And then I'm two thirds of the way through the runtime in time of the film now on the page and all of a sudden I'm where underground and I'm like who are these cannibalistic. humanoid weller gesture. Yeah Yeah Yeah so you know. It's a story. Sometimes a story just turns into what it wants to be says. It's the planet movie and sometimes it's not John August. It's been a joy to have you delight or coming. Yeah thank you for coming in bringing your the prestige of your more popular and better podcast to our show. It was a damn delight. We don't have this kind of a banter. That's nice to. Yeah Jack Off.

Yeah Little Chernobyl grow into a thing. Yeah it's right there too easy easy. Yeah I would love yeah. I would love for there to be Chernobyl to and it's about so.

"Yourself. It is boring to all all they breaking in the world's will not help you if you're right. It's not fantastic wrecked. Yes. Oh, the writing is still always paramount. We should ask our friend. Kevin who is a reader how much of the sees how much she sees people doing clever innovative things on the pitch. No what we should have Kevin on the show. I've asked Kevin. And he said, no, oh, really interesting. Maybe because well, first of all Kevin's, not as real name. Real names dot is Thaddeus because he is a working reader, and perhaps that would violate some sort of thing. What? So my topic for the week is planning and actually had this idea to ago because I had a lunch with Ben witness who runs the scrape blog called law fair, which is all about sort of federal policy and state security, and there's a lot of stuff about the Trump administration and sort of Russia's stuff, and I asked him a question, and basically I wanted to know of all the people involved as whole Russia mass. Who there do you think actually has a plan like actually sort of knows what's going on has a plan for what's going to happen next. And how many of the people are just like scrambling and just sort of going to the next the next thing. And he said that he believed that almost everybody was scrambling. Because the nobody knows enough to actually make a good plan. And so that same week. I was also writing the third Arlo Finch and in the third of Finch it starts with the characters having this plan, and I had to reveal to the reader kind of what the plan was. But it got me thinking like we'll how reveal the plan and how much plan is the. Leader really need to know how much can you? Hold back, which is more exciting for the reader. So I thought we talk about characters and plans and motivation on it. How you share them with the reader? Yeah. I would imagine that the first question to ask is is my character a planner or not because there are some characters that are there hallmark is that they moved through the day, and it kind of bizarre fashion, the big lebowski has no plan ever. And that's part of why that character works. But if they do have a plan then. Yeah, you need to figure out how much people need to no end. Specifically, if you if it's helpful to conceal part of the plan from them. Yep. Absolutely. So sometimes you want to kind of pre answer some questions that are natural gonna come up like wisest character doing this. Like, you know, what what is their aim like what are they actually going after? Sometimes you need you just take away the questions and so scripted turned in. I didn't need. A big plan for this thing. I just needed to know I needed to character would say, no, I can get you in the club. Because my uncle is the manager. That's all engine. I didn't have to have a here the whole plan or like how we're gonna get there. Or what the whole set of soon to be like as long as I knew you could get through the door and that ever believed that could get through the door that was enough and the surprises that come up because people didn't really know the whole rest of the plan that was fun. So it's it's recognizing the minimum that an audience needs to know about the plan going forward and by plant. I don't necessarily mean like here's how we're going to do the heist. It often is just the character says like, you know, we'll be in Denver in two hours. Like, okay. As long as I know destination. That's great or finals are next week. Okay. Great. You set a time. So I know that files are out there. It's it's kind of setting a a framework for what's going to happen in the nets a little bit of your story. And it's hopefully telling us a little bit about. Out this characters method of interacting with the world. Some people are incredibly cautious prudent methodical planning can become an interesting aspect of your personality over planning isn't aspect of a certain kind of personality just as under planning is. Sometimes your plans frustrate people. What you really want to avoid are situations where your character comes up with a plan. The plan is flawed people point out the flaws and the character says it don't worry about it. It'll be fine..

I'm really excited about is that we have one special guest, a very dear friend of mine, Emily zoo off who is a former development executive at Pixar. You may have heard of Pixar. There are small animation company that little upstart thing they're trying to do this computer animation. We'll see if it works and the their deal is they at least claim to be good at stories. So I suppose you my. Nestl finger another and it's gonna be good. She's a wonderful person. So I'm very excited to have Emily there. And you guys should Seattle people come out and see us. Don't leave us hanging. We've got a link. I guess that'll be in the show notes. Is that right? Shutouts? So tickets are trying to others or ten dollars. If your member of the north west screamers field, which barely this or the film school, so twenty dollars for ten dollars. But come see us. It is at the AMC theaters Pacific place eleven I guess we're gonna show up there. And we're gonna have a great time. I'm going to be way. Deep into an adventure. Bookstore Craig's flying up just for the evening. It'll be really fun time. It'll be sort of intersection -ality of Arlo, Finch and script notes and Seattle. So it should be good time. The film school is the name of a film school. Yeah. The film's go all one word all one word. All right. So don't think if you are at a film score film school, you're paying twenty dollars. If you're at a film school, but if you're at film school, by the way, twenty articles indefinite articles, usually important, not every language has the distinction between interesting. I love the distinction between those two things, and I will also say having been to Seattle many times everything costs. Twenty dollars everything. Oh, totally absolutely. Looking looking at a fish cost twenty dollars. Just standing in that market looking at a fish twenty markets, so expensive just to your is everywhere. They look really twenty twenty. So you guys can afford it. Yeah. About place crepe, we need some photos of you catching some fish at the pike place market because otherwise people won't believe your Ashley in. I don't settle. They let you catch the fish the deals you buy the fish. And then they throw it to each other. Because otherwise, let's face it as me, fish everywhere. Yeah. Now, have you seen the gum wall? John.

"Hello and welcome. My name is John August. My news, Craig Mason, and this is up so three hundred and eighty four script notes, they podcast about screenwriting and things that are interesting to screenwriters today on the podcast. We're gonna talk about plot holes. And why sometimes you're better off leaving them than trying to fix them? We'll also be answering questions about things that screenwriters noticed that normally might not and sequences and outlines it's sort of where to fix those problems when they come up. So it's pronounced it's pronounced plot holes and not PLO foles. It looks like Plato's. So I was looking at the word plot holes, I realized today, and maybe I'm just dumb and never done this before it's based on potholes like potholes the whole streets. And so I bet it is. I bet that is the generation of the word because to me. Even if there weren't potholes. There is a hole in your pl-. It makes sense. You might be right. I don't know who can answer this question for us. I think John mcwhirter can answer this question for visa God. I would love to have him on the show. You know? I'm like obsessed with him. You are because he's awesome szeswith musicals. I'm you guys are pretty much separated goals and language and language usage. And you know, he's the one that turned me onto the whole. What is it? I can't remember the word used to describe it. But it's the thing where people will add an at the end of a word to indicate emphasis like no, yes, stop her. What are you doing? Love that extra extra little schwa- a little soi eared. Anyway, he's genius genius. We also have news. So our news is about three upcoming events. That's almost too many Princess bride January twenty seventh at five PM. So I think the rules are that the doors will open at four thirty in which case W members can go in and get their seats at four forty five. Everyone is free to get their seats. The movie will start at five pm at the theater and afterwards, we will discuss it in a very classic. Let's take a deep dive on this movie because we just watched this movie. So is the plan for January twenty seventh. Awesome. I think that's going to be and it's gonna be fun. I mean, and it's in celebration. Of course, the great William Goldman, I love I think most people do love the movie, it's one of those movies that a lot of people of memorized. But I love digging into these things in finding little bits and bobs that are just so gorgeous that make it work the way it does Highbury. We have a live show coming up in Seattle as London rumored. It is. Now, actually have the date is February sixth. Seven PM. It's gonna be at the northwest film forum. There's information in the show notes about how you get tickets. If there are tickets, or if you just show up we're recording to have the time. So I don't really know what the rules are. But maybe we'll have the information and those will be in the show notes. But we look forward to seeing Seattle on February six at seven pm. That's going to be fun. I love Seattle tells great. I love to finally this second Arlo Finch book comes out in February. And there's a launch event February ninth here in Los Angeles chevelle as bookstore. It does at twelve thirty pm, and you should come see me, and I will sign your books. It's the first chance to buy the book in Los Angeles. And you come I will probably read a chapter from it and offer, you know, answers to questions that might come up. So come bring kids who might be able to read the book. But also just come and say, hi because I'll be there and happily sign your book. I mean, and I kind of feel like when people see you in real life. There's a little bit of squealing now might be a little tiny little tiny. I might spark join for certain people certain people certain people not all people, but Serge elected people select people, I'm going to segue into sparking George just a second because I blocked this week. I don't log very often. But and I'm going to spoil who actually said this. There's a project that I was considering doing it was a pretty big project that would be more than a year of my life to do and had a phone call about it. And I was thinking about it..

"And I've been through it before. And I'm just not having this year. Good for you. I mean, obviously, my position awards been fairly fairly consistent positional this time. I'd just the OB notion of awards for art has always been troubling to me. And of course, look. Mark isn't making points that haven't been made before these aren't fresh points. Yes. Shocker of all shocks, a lot of actors will talk about poor people while they themselves are making a lot of money in wearing expensive things and also people that sometimes make a lot of money more expensive things. Donate more to charity. The market ever imagine donating in his lifetime. There is always an easy kind of you could just sort of easily. Go look at this hypocrisy of the whole thing. And I get that. It is easy in sort of fun to punch up I guess at incredibly beautiful rich people who are going on about their beautiful art, and so on and so forth. But it's also a bit boring now, I think everybody gets it. Like, we all understand it lady. Gaga weren't also kind of a nice. She seems like a very nice person. You know, like I've never heard her say or do anything where I thought like. Oh, yuck. Sh- not R Kelly for God's sake. Shut up Mark idiot. On, you know, please stop listening to the podcast is also this new thing of like people who have a complaint about the podcast, and I'm like, well, let me let me get your address and send you your refund. Jerk fun fun. I couldn't even get a I couldn't even get over that. I feel I thought a little more said you did on. This is my own special thing, I need to figure out what that word is that. It's just that. That little snap of something. Like, you know, what I'm not dealing with it. I'm not having. It's basically I feel about that the clap emoji kind of underlining. My my words with clouds. Yeah. I'm just trying to hit mental mute as much as I can these days dismantle mute. You didn't. That's they don't even know you muted them. That's the best part high also kind of limit. All right moving on moving on our feature. Toddler today is slipping up the party dividing the party. It's that trope that you often see in well, originally in-service Scooby doo things like like, let's split up. So he can cover more ground. So therefore, everyone sort of gets into trouble because they split the party. But also happens lot GED where it's idea like you don't want to divide up the party because if you'd have to the party, you're weaker separately than you are together. And it's also just really annoying for players because then you're not you're just sort of waiting around for your to your turn again. But as I thought about it like dividing, the party is actually a crucial thing that we end up having to do in movies. And especially now in the second Arlo Finch just that we can actually tell the story that the best way possible. So I wanna talk about certain situations where it's good to keep characters together with more importantly situations where you really want to keep the characters separate apart. And why you might want to do that. Yeah. It's a really smart idea. For a topic because it's incredibly relevant to how we present challenges to our characters, and the reason that they always say in it's the maybe the only real rule, meaning only real unwritten rule of role playing games is don't split up the party. Don't split..

"Nice. Yeah. Yeah. So there Willie ratings for your program. So people want to support you in twenty nineteen they could support you by watching your shell. That'd be fantastic. So it's not like you get extra dollars. If it will watch your show, but you know, people notice for shows are have high rates just great people aren't support me in twenty nineteen. They can preorder the second Arlo Finch. That's the single biggest thing you could do from this year. It'd be a priori the second Arlo Finch because if all the people who bought into the first go round, but preordered the second book, it would be on the top of the charts to add Halliwell great. Yeah. That'd be. Great people wanted to do that. I'm going to do that. Because my daughter is a big fan. She loved. That's right. And I I didn't know about the second book, shall I say, you've just cost yourself assail. No, no, no should still by the book. Now. I mean, you know, giving it to me. I'll give you a copy of the audio dish in which you can read this on the same night that the addition Patrick Cronin. I just I just approved the artwork minutes before we started reporting exciting. I love it. When things like that are happening behind the scenes behind the scenes, some news. So people know about our Princess bride screening that's taking place on January twenty seventh at five pm at the theater some details on how you get into the screening. So this is apparently how it's going to work. So the doors open at four thirty pm WJ members get in. I they get first choice of seats and then at four forty five pm, it's open seating for everyone else who wants to come in. And see the persists bride. And then stay for our discussion of the traffic movie on that we are going to be looking at that night and celebrating and John correctly from wrong. But the idea is that we're going to record our discussion as one of our deep dive podcasts essentially that is exactly at. And so if this goes, well, I'd like to do. This several times more even this year. Great that's fun ill. It's a way to get me to see movies. Yeah. But also sometimes I some classic movies to be great thing for us to say. I think that's another goal. I would like to do this year is like we do the three page challenge. But we'd never really look at whole screenplays. And so maybe we'll pick a screenplay. It's like a book club thing where you and I will both read the screenplay in. We'll zoom that our listeners have read the screenplay maybe even for a movie that hasn't been shot. So we can actually look at what looks like on page for a really good screenplay. All right. I'm Dan with that. We also have another live show to announce this breaking news. So we've been trying to do a Seattle show for about as long as the podcast is existed. All your finally doing a live show in Seattle. February sixth details will be coming soon. But assume that it'll be in the evening, we were going to do it someplace at venue that will be appropriately sized for people who come in Seattle. We don't know how many that it's going to be. But I'm doing my book tour, Craig you're flying up just for this. So it should be fun time here come on Seattle. Don't make us look stupid. You know? I mean because I I love you. I love Seattle Seattle to we have family in Seattle. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. They're just saying the Atta like, hey, guys you ever reputation bring super cool, but you don't want that like tilt over into. We don't care them. Right. You still it like you want to show up. So my goal is forty thousand people. And while we're doing a tour of the United States on back when we were at the Austin film festival. I recorded a special episode of studio three sixty which is a slate podcast. And that episode aired this last week, and it's actually pretty nice it's sort of recap of how I got into being a screenwriter. So if you don't know that history, there's a leak in the show, and it's to an episode of studio three sixty recorded a badge on my history as a screenwriter. All right. Let's get into some twenty nineteen with something that can really get going..

"I've noticed that. I don't feel as emotionally connected to the pitch. I guess it's what an actor must feel like with a play any shifts on getting yourself to the right spot. Emotionally for the tenth or the twentieth. Time you pitch on a project. How do you do John? I'll say I always have to find something new about the project to be describing that time. So like a new way in I try not to be so rehearsed that, I'm just a robot who performs the thing and it also try to make sure my pitches invite places for them to offer feedback and really communicate back in. So that it really is a conversation. It's not just a presentation. Crazy advice. It's funny. My youngest son Augie has gotten into magic, and he loves it. And he practices like crazy. And he's twelve years old. And he's probably spent a year now doing card flourishes. And and what he forgets is that people are seeing the trick for the first time, and you have to when you go into these meetings. Even though you've done an eight times they've never heard it. So it's a performance you have to pretend this is the first time, and I think the great actors on stage do that they say, okay? All new audience. I'm doing it. I gotta give them my best. That's man. You cannot bore yourself. This is your job. Yeah. So figure it out. I'll say for Arlo Finch I've had to do a lot of school. This an show with school visits. I'm giving. A keynote presentation and have now done it fifty times. Maybe I've done it. A ton of times is the same slide. Same order largely the same jokes. And there have been times where I've had like look back to the scientific where am I? Where am I in this? But I'm still always like live in present for it. Because it is always something different. There's always like different kids in the front row. There's always something about the environment situation, that's different. And so key into what's different about you being in this room with this group. Do your research to know who it is. You're sitting across from and what things are going to click into. And so in that initial sort of like, you know, five minutes of sort of BS conversation about the, you know, rabies and weather or not about stuff, you can get some sense of what it is that they're interested in excited about and you can tailor some of what you say what you emphasize based on who it is..

"Would it have been as interested in you for me? It would have I can't speak for Andy. For me. I'm still in shock at the opportunities that I have Robotech is a property that I loved I loved this series growing up. So yeah, for me, the creative would've driven me to do that regardless of whether maybe it was less financial situation. But I think it's something we're all going to face some developing more, original stuff. It's a big conversation with filmmakers. Do you want the ethical or not does it matter? Does it have to be the actual experience and every writer is gonna have to make their own choice. I'm kind of curious what you guys think just a heat to do the applause meter. But if you think that something means more because it's an theater as opposed to being on a streaming platform. Please applaud could means more. No. If you think you don't really care one way or the other whether it comes through streaming platform and television, or it's and theater, please applaud. Interesting. Now, you do that six years ago? That's everybody in the first applause. No one in the second. So so I'm here at the Austin film festival, but I'm also here at the Texas book festival which happens to be the same weekend. And so for Arlo Finch, I'm doing all the book events for that. And so this morning at seven twenty in the morning a van picked me up, and I went to grade school, and I talked to three hundred kids about our thin should slide show. It was great. I'm really tired now. But I asked the same question. And so there's been a lot of talk about so like really do arlift inches a movie or as a TV series? And so I pulled the audience I did the same thing. You don't let kids clap you had to have to raise their hand quietly. And so I asked them so should Arlo Finch B movie or a Netflix show, and it was really evenly split. So I'm glad that some of the kids knew what a movie was movie theater. A recurring tov it. We'll be topic on scripts for the next however long, we do the show is what is the movie is we talked about like a movie of a piece of entertainment. About two hours long. That is a one time story probably because right now, we have these definitions of what a movie is versus what a TV movie is for Netflix, which are just ridiculous. Don't bash reality cultural. It's not just the responsibility of the people making the stuff or the people distributing the stuff because you know, what I would say is as a person who is a diehard believer in the theatrical experience. It's just what I love. But to look at it and say that it's really the responsibility of people who write about movies people who talk about movies, for example, right now, I would say, and this may be changing really fast that I'd say right now a show TV show on net flicks. There's no difference in the culture between a TV show on Netflix on a TV show anywhere else. It is not less than it is not different than it just is for some reason. And I think it's because maybe the critical establishment or maybe the the press doesn't treat them the same a movie that's on net. Netflix is not quite the same. And that can change. That just takes the culture changing to kind of embrace and treat them the same way..

"Then we'll be answering questions we've gotten from listeners just like you. Craig had the dialogue topic. I had the topic about a bunch of people in scene because that's what writing this week's. It's always nice when like the stuff that we're working on is actually useful for people to listen to mean a mostly any idea ever do have is because I literally think, oh, here's something that cropped up today, you know. But then I guess that's sort of why we're vaguely useful podcast because I don't actually invent baloney topics. We go with the things that we're actually dealing with all the time screenwriters a vaguely useful podcast about screaming and things that are vaguely useful to screenwriters before we get to those top. Though we have some news and some updates news on my side. I put out a trailer this past week for Arlo Finch. So Arlington's being the books that I write the folks McMillan says, okay, would you wanna make a book trailer like, yeah, that sounds like a way I can spend a lot of time. I just like not write the books and that would be lower fun. So I made a book trailer so you can see tha that off our own method Shelley did the music for it and did a fantastic job. Great. Yes, I liked it a lot myself. I'm in a friend of ours. His son Cormac go very do the narration. So I wanna thank him. I think I'm Mr. Ghaffari listened to the podcast as well. So thank him for a lending. His son's voice to the trailer. I happen to know for fact that Michael is big fan, so that must be thrilled for him and you can't. You know, you can't fake sense of wonder. Well, no, I take it back. Suppose you can. That's how movies are made the time, but still it's hard to fake sense of wonder and children in particular when they try and fake a sense of wonder, sometimes it just comes off as incredibly insincere, puppet act and you know how I feel about puppy. It's, but this was sincere because Cormac is in fact a fan of the books. Yeah. So I was looking for usually when it had to voice over stuff at reaching out to somebody, there's these services can go to any confines the voices of stuff. And those people are really good. We've used those for like, are now for live shows or other times where we needed professional voices. And if you go into the sites looking for child after child voices, you either find a dull, pretend to be children in a really uncomfortable way or these actual kids. And I worry that they're being staged, mom's death and the app sort of. So it was much better to go to a real life kid. I knew who's actually genuinely a fan of the book of course, then if you become abusive in your recording session and hit him or something, you can always just make it, you know, go away with a small payment that did not happen. Oh, okay. Well, I'm just saying several episodes ago. We talked about the credits revision that's coming through from the deputy in the w east that crash. She worked on. So this is the screen credits revision is a whole cleanup of the manual. Screen credits, but there's been a change since the last time we spoke crazy wanna speak to the change. So there was this. You know, I've already gone on my rant. If you listened to the WGN episode where I went on my bananas rant. And so you know, basically we've been dealing with a misinformation campaign and get even call it a disinflation campaign..

"It's been perverted to benefits to really do the opposite of what copyright was supposed to do, which is to get this out there in the public. But you could say, well, it doesn't matter the things that I'm writing for Warner Brothers because I will never control copyright there for my heirs. We'll get nothing that is not true, not true. So Charlie battery was the movie I made for Warner Brothers that pays me residuals. Residuals are clutch writer, school of America, and those residuals are based on every time they sell the movie through tunes or license. Netflix. Checks checks every quarter for challenge and it's quite valuable. Those checks will keep coming after. I'd I and that is eight theory, good thing. And this checks will keep coming as long as that movie is worth something and it is being licensed under copyright. So as long as we're both has copyright on that Charlton Charlton factory movie, I've made residuals will keep coming. And that is a good asset down the road. The Mets, basically long short of it right there. We do have a kind of perpetuates income source with residuals. And that's why we have residuals essentially to simulate royalties to overcome the absurd fiction of the work for hire, which sometimes it's not a fiction, but a lot of times it is. So yeah, that's basically what we're dealing with revealing with ninety one hundred twenty years following creation of her first publication for location, creation of that's how long it lasts. So when we die, it kind of doesn't matter. Under the log just really care in our case because our death is not actually triggering any time constraint for you. It will matter on Arlo Finch. Or interestingly, for unite both written music for movies. So we're an ask cap and we get royalties those I think will will be tied to death and copyright and all that publishing. Yeah, the should be. Yeah. Engine say, and it's also complicated because it's co mingled with, you know, the people who did the music for it. So it's me Jammie elfin and I don't really know how that all sorts out. I've to choose not to worry about it, but Craig while I have you on the call, I separated rights. So separated rights would also pass to an air, correct? I, yeah, I believe so impressed to your state? Yes. So if you're a person who writes a work for which you receive separated rights, which is complicated topic, but essentially it's ability to derive money from sequels and other things based upon your renewal work that should pass along to your heirs. Sometimes they're even creative choices that come along with that. So that's another useful thing. I mean, separated rights are at times tricky to invoke because the companies hate that they exist. But for instance, if you write an original screenplay and saw the original screenplay, you will maintain a separate right for dramatic 'exploitation under certain circumstances. In other words, you. Have the rights for a play to be done of the original script you wrote and when you die, that doesn't go away that stays with the family. Famously Jeff lot and who Roach Pretty Woman controlled. Separate rights for Pretty Woman entered did not want to be a Broadway musical for a very, very long time and could stop it. That's separated rights that is giving him that ability. But let's talk about sort of the creative aspect of this, not the legal, but just sort of creatively what you might think about down the road. And so you may have specific intentions for how you want to see your work using the future. So a zillion years ago worked on out of chasing of wrinkle in time, which is not the same thread of the current time, but not only had already passed away, but her estate had tremendous controls over what could be done with that properties. They're not just who could do it, but like specific things that had to be in the scripture could not be in the script. They had creative controls and that was given to her estate, Edward Albee's estate has sort of famously tangled with people who wanted to be Kassian changes to who's afraid of Virginia Woolf put Lincoln the show notes to that, and I was talking to Andrew lip my friend about stuff.

"Absolutely. So the Arlo finches my book series. The first book came out in February the second, what comes next February? So it's a three book series. It's Harry Potter age fiction, and it's been great. It's been just so different to write books versus movies. There's just obviously more words and the sensitive kind of insight. You get. Worse more words, but things like we've all been screenplays. You can sort of plow through screenplay in two weeks of you need to if you can just muscle it and there's no way to muscle book just take so much longer. I'm still trying to figure out muscle the I've never written anything in two weeks really can do that if a half to God Franken with three weeks, really?

There's the Nanno rhino the national novel writing month Jia where people write a whole book in November, and you can do. You can do that. If you're writing sixteen hundred words a day, I hate that thing. Tell me what you find it disrespectful. It's like it's like, oh, let's have a national surgery in an hour. You know, people have a profession. This is a craft. It's an art. Why are you jamming it into a month? It's a novel for God's sakes. What? How good could it possibly be? If you're like. I.

Could go to gender-neutral. Yeah. Like I don't know if our Lee is girl because both of those names are gender, neutral? They are. So I look at this. I do know that this one is a boy because in little photo that was sent through the little things are low in Boyce differ on the the hospital card. But like Arlo you could name a girl out.

Yeah, the math doesn't really kind of work that same way. Well, I guess I think if you count the bonus episodes, you could listen to an episode of day and fill full year. You're right. Well, except the leap year, right. Yeah. We don't really count on them. We don't count those, but looking calendars. I do some things to put on your calendar for listeners segue, man. Yes, yes.

Fifth, I'll be at the San Diego festival of books talking about attention starting tomorrow with September, twenty second, I'll be the orange public library Comecon. There's a cons and other places this this city of orange. Okay. And then it started October, I'm headed to Frankford Oslo Stockholm in Copenhagen for the German and Scandinavian releases nine Fitch. So if you're in any of those cities or countries you can track me down. That's awesome. I kept meaning to get up to Stockholm at the very least because Lithuania we're right up there. You know we're there not comes amazing. Yeah. So like our director you on rank and and our. Jacobi era. And then stone Skarsgard. They just zip back and forth as they need to. It's easy for them to go home Sousa, easy for me to go home on there. But yes. So I want to go to Stockholm and Oslo would be pretty great to an Copenhagen. I mean, actually the all would be pretty great. Yeah. Well, you'll have a great time doing that.

That's school and you and I will be together doing live shows in the Austin film festival so that it's a twenty fifth that starts right, and while I'm there, it's actually coincidentally the Texas both festival Sobe Duca Pence. Both were Tesco festival and Austin film festival at the same time. Can we call the Austin film festival offy? Yes, we can. We will officially change it to offi. We're going to have a great Austin show this year. Some awesome people are going to be coming. We're going to pack the stage as we usually do. And we've been talking to the awesome folks, and I think it's going to be pretty exciting and. I did not realize this, but apparently the live show that determined people away. So we're, we're working on maybe a way that we don't deter people away. Bigger venue would be a great thing. So we'll see if we can get that to happen. Correct. Oh, and I should mention to those of you who are thinking about going awesome film festival to participate in the pitch competition. Apparently, there was a little bit of, I guess, some feedback that the judges last year may have been altogether a little too easy on the contestants. And apparently the request came in that I return to provide a little bit of a little more that Simon Cal agency Kwa. So I will be, I believe, I will be judging the final pitch competition at Austin this year. So you know you wanna do that, right? You want to be in that. So being it did it do it, do it do it are this week is about relationships and launch on Twitter actually asked, I started going through the podcasts from episode number one. Do you guys happen to know if there's an episode going into how YouTube met? And so I was thinking back in episode, one hundred. We do talk about the emails that led to the creation of the podcast. I'm not sure if ever discussed on the show how you and I met like that back story thing, and I think I have one memory of it, but you may have a different memory of it..
