Drew's Script-O-Rama: free film and TV screenplays since 1995

"It was eons before I discovered that 'lauded' was a good thing.

Anyway, I'm more like that slack‚Äďassed buddy who doesn't return your phone calls, has owed you twenty bucks for the last 14 years and flirts with your wife when it comes to updating the site at times. For that I feel shame. Shame, I feel. But hey, it's 2010 now, and I'm a changed man. Besides, don't I get some slack since I've had this site up since 1995? Val Kilmer used to be Batman back then! And Mr. Showbiz left you high and dry, but your friend Drew, he sticks with you while simultaneously referring to himself in the third person!"

(Drew, 2010)

Sanford Meisner: acting is the ability to live truthfully under the given imaginary circumstances

"[Sanford Meisner] said 'acting is the ability to live truthfully under the given imaginary circumstances' now he had worked on that sentence for 71 years, funny he didn't use the word 'talent'. He said it's an ability and an ability is a skill. And the cool thing about a skill is it's learnable."
(Martin Barter)
