No Time Wasters by Robert j. Lee

Everyone Loves Stats!

Recently,┬áin an effort to impose some kind of order where there is disorder, I went through all the emails I’ve gotten over the years from filmmakers requesting to use a script from the website. The site has been live since 2012 and I’ve been steadily getting emails, even while the site wasn’t active.

I thought I’d post some of the stats because I found them pretty interesting. Occasionally I would get an email from someone asking to produce a script but never actually mentioning which script they were interested in. I have not included these emails.

All titles are links to the scripts.

Patron Exclusive Script

Failing the Bechdel Test

Two female characters meet in a cafe to talk about a man
and whether they lack dimension and agency

This week’s script is the first one available to read and produce exclusively to Two Pages a Week supporters.

I release a new script every week but from now on only one script a month will be available for free, the rest will be exclusive to Patrons. I have worked hard to try and make sure my patrons get their money’s worth.

If you’re interested in becoming a patron and having access to exclusive scripts and extras check out my Patreon page here or click the button below and see if there’s a reward tier that suits your budget.

But don’t worry if you can’t afford to become a patron, there are still plenty of scripts available in the Script Menu with many more to come.

May – August


May – August

Daisy finds an interesting cassette tape at a garage sale

Something I’m going to be doing now the website is back is highlighting films that have been made from the scripts.

The first featured film of 2018 is May – August directed by Aubri Wiscombe. May – August has been made more than any other script and it’s great to see different filmmakers having different takes on the material. I recommend checking out all the versions of it on the films page.

The script is included below.
