Mr B-Sure's Blog

My life is one long conversation with me taking breaths. In those breaths if you would like to comment feel free; thank you. I'm a Screenwriter and Filmmaker. Lover of all things story from the tales we were told as children to the lies we tell when we grow up.



Who’s reading scripts?

The most honest joke from one of my favourite shows (Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace) is when Garth says “I’m one of the few people you’ll meet who’s written more books than they’ve read” – for those who have wasted their life so far in not watching it – Garth Marenghi is a rip off Stephen King character parody.

If you’re talking about being a novelist this seems ridiculous, imagine. I would say almost every wannabe screenwriter I know … falls right into this category. They just don’t read scripts. I can’t think, off the top of my head of any other art form where this is the case. Screenwriters usually have an incredible knowledge of movies, verasciously consuming them…but they don’t sodding-well read them.

There are plenty of places you can find scripts online, and in fact my next blog post that I’m working on is about reading a script while watching the film and how beneficial this can be. So below are a few website links to a few places you can find scripts. ALONG WITH 5 of my suggestions that you should read right away if you haven’t.

MY TOP 5 SUGGESTIONS (in no particular order) with links to the scriptywiptydoodaas

  • There Will Be Blood – Paul Thomas Anderson -
  • Chinatown – Rober Towne –
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Charlie Kaufman –
  • The Dark Knight – Christopher Nolan –
  • Alien – Dan O’Bannon –

There are so many more worth reading, I just really love these. They all grab you as a reader and throw you around through the story.

Enjoy reading and learn everything you can from these super successful stories – all with their own audience and their own distinct style.

Thanks – Mr B-Sure

Writing in 2019

Welcome to my blog, I’m a British Writer/Director

The aim and soul purpose of Mr B-Sure as a blog is to talk to myself out-loud on the internet. I guess that’s most blogs. But I hope if anybody reads it they can find a little bit of themselves in here. Why we do those creative things we do as a flabby, smelly species. What’s in it for us. Our process. It’ll all become rather self explanatory.

If nothing else, talking to myself out-loud on the internet is enough. Just to mark my creative journey. This will be about how I do what I do, my goals as a writer and filmmaker. Hopefully I can also get other writers, filmmakers and creative involved.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy
