What’s the “Implied Contract With the Audience?” Listen to this solid discussion between screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin on how to write the ending of your movie. The meat of the podcast starts about a third of the way into the show. I skipped past all the Hayden Christensen stuff…

A few great excerpts:

"If you’re writing and you don’t know how the movie ends, you’re writing the wrong beginning."

"What would be the best, most excruciating, difficult test of faith for my hero and his new outlook on life?"

John and Craig talk about the ending of Up, and the way that Pixar really “gets” endings. Too bad the ending of Brave didn’t pay off as well as Up.

You didn’t see John Carter? That’s okay! We watched it for you! And listening to us joke about it for 59 minutes is WAY more fun than watching that movie for 132 minutes.

It’s The Improv Movie Party! Episode 3! (And here’s a bonus improv scene from that episode!)
