No Film School on dialogue

Here's another cool graphic from the No Film School website.  All about dialogue.  The dialogue in Chinatown is incredible because it's always coming from a necessary place of deep need.   If you know who your character is, what they need and put something in their way, the dialogue should fly onto the page. If the dialogue isn't happening for you, it's probably because you don't truly know what your character wants and needs out of the situation you've put them in.  

Cool snippet from the article:

Humphrey Bogart once said this about exposition:

“If you’re going to give me something expository to say, you better have two camels fucking in the background.”

I will do a whole follow up blog on how best to get out exposition... without the camels.
