About Beyond the Screenplay

About Beyond the Screenplay

Beyond the Screenplay is a podcast from the team behind the popular YouTube channel Lessons from the Screenplay.

In each episode, Michael Tucker and the LFTS team do deeper dives into the storytelling of individual movies and chat with the creatives behind those films.

We nerd out about unconventional (or perfectly conventional) story structure, gush about amazing performances (how is Meryl Streep great in everything?!), and commiserate about how we all cried at that one moment with Bing Bong in Inside Out. But mostly, we enthusiastically extract and dissect as many great things about each movie as possible.

Why Patreon?

While Beyond the Screenplay is connected to LFTS, it is also its own entity. It has its own production costs (mics, recorder, paying our editor), its own challenges (finding time to record when this is the third job for some of us), and its own community—you. So we want it to have its own Patreon—both so we can financially continue to build the podcast, but also so we can have a place to interact with our listeners.

As a patron, you'll get access to a patron-exclusive every month—from bonus episodes to Q&A episodes where we answer questions and discuss topics suggested by you.

How do I ask a question for the Q&As?

Each month we'll create a post asking for questions and topics. Simply reply to that post with your suggestion. You can also always hit us up on Twitter: @BTScreenplay

How do I get access to the exclusive content?

Once you become a patron, you'll get access to a private Audio RSS link. Simply add this URL to your favorite podcast player and you will be subscribed to all patron-exclusive content. Doesn't sound quite so "simple?" Here's an article explaining how to do it.
