Recalcamos continuamente en las clases del curso de guión que hay 3 cuestiones fundamentales que trabajar continuamente a la hora de convertirse en un guionista profesional: leer guiones, ver películas y escribir.
Dentro de la lectura conviene además leer guiones con visión de análisis, tal y como se hace en la asignatura de análisis de guión que contiene el curso.
Hoy te traemos un interesante ejemplo de análisis de los que habitualmente se publican en el blog de Scott Myers. Se trata del guión de Flight, película escrita por John Gatins, protagonizada por Denzel Washington y dirigida por Robert Zemeckis
