Beef spectacles

Just going through my feature script, tightening up, and it struck me…


The two things I want in each scene are:

BEEF: that’s my teenage daughter’s word of the year.  Meaning – trouble, arguments, tension.

SPECTACLE: something visually remarkable, engaging, memorable.

So here I am, holed up in my writer’s room at the bottom of the garden, checking each scene for BEEF SPECTACLES.
