Scriptnotes - “Ep 359: Where Movies Come From"
John (writer of this, this and this) and Craig “Maaaaaazin” Mazin always do a great job bursting Hollywood’s dream bubble without dumping on the film industry as a whole, with plenty of anecdotes and consumption/technology chat to keep outsiders interested. This one’s got a great discussion about the boundary between biography and embellishment, as well as a neat new social network based on stories.
11:45: "Facts are not property.”
45:25: "I don’t think this IP fever is going to go away. It’s just going to probably move on to something after comic books.”
1:14:00: “I am as Jewish as Jewish gets.” The podcast’s One Cool Thing section is always worth a listen, and this episode doesn’t disappoint.
