Writing is hard. So why not listen to how the greats do it? Check out these great writing tips from Paul Thomas Anderson.
One of my favorite writers in the world is Paul Thomas Anderson. Maybe you have heard of him. (Of course you have. Because you’re here.)
He’s written Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love, There Will Be Blood, The Master, Inherent Vice, and Phantom Thread. He is currently prepping to shoot his next original script, Untitled High School Movie, that all of us are already in line to see.
Anderson is one of the few writer-directors working today who can get an original idea greenlit, off their name being a brand and the caliber of awards-friendly talent he can attract as a filmmaker. He’s made a career out of it since Boogie Nights.
Honestly, watching his career evolve has been one of the most exciting things about moviegoing for the better part of the last 25 years. How many auteurs really come up before our eyes?
