Writer-director Seth Worley visualizes his film's structure as a clock face.

Seth Worley’s latest film, Real Gone, is the latest in Film Riot’s Epic Summer series of shorts. It’s hilarious, dark, and made with Seth’s usual clever DIY attitude.

Seth wrote Real Gone in Slugline, and detailed some of his writing process in this behind-the-scenes video. Story structure nerds may particularly love his “clock” method of outlining. Check it out:

Run Like Hell

Run Like Hell is a hilarious feature film in development, inspired by the cult classic video game. As the director attached to the project, I teamed up with producer Adrian Askarieh and Red Giant Films to create this teaser. Step one was writing the script.

I used Slugline of course, and began by borrowing heavily from the wonderful dialogue in the feature screenplay by Max Adams. I don't know what software Max used to write it, but I was able to copy and paste the text directly from the PDF into Slugine. I then began laying in the strange events that unfold just outside our hero's field of view.

I used Slugline's outline view to keep track of the escalation of events, and producer Aharon Rabinowitz used Slugline to add notes to my drafts, often emailing me the Fountain text directly.

Even on a project this compact, Slugline's flexibility, combined with the openness of the Fountain format, made for an easy collaboration across thousands of miles and multiple time zones.

Latest Blumhouse Thriller Written With Slugline

From The Wrap:

The horror genre continues to prove its allure to serious actors, as Aaron Eckhart is set to star in the exorcism-themed movie Incarnate for Jason Blum’s Blumhouse banner, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) is directing from a script by Ronnie Christensen. Production starts next month.

Eckhart will play an exorcist with the ability to tap into the subconscious of the possessed who is put to the test when a nine year-old boy becomes possessed by a demon from his past.

We love Blumhouse. They are disrupting the Hollywood model by making hits with tiny budgets. So we were especially excited when Ronnie Christensen dropped us a line to let us know that he wrote Incarnate in Slugline. Congrats Ronnie!
