Basically we release a teleplay once a week over the net. I think it's such a cool concept, but most people use it for fanfiction (which, of couse, there is nothing wrong with).

For some people, Film is definitely an art, but I'd still probably consider myself a storyteller instead of an artist no matter how deep into film I go.
