Six Second Screenplay Tips from Screenwriter Brian Koppelman (on Vine!)

David Levien, Jesse Eisenberg and Brian Koppelman on the set of 'Solitary Man' Anchor Bay

Brian Koppelman knows his craft. The writer, director, and producer has a long list of credits to prove it ("The Girlfriend Experience," "Solitary Man," "Ocean's 13," etc.). He's also set to be a showrunner for a new HBO show about the 1970s music scene (if the show gets picked up as a series).

Recently, Koppelman has taken to sharing his screenwriting wisdom in six second tips on Vine. In these six second clips, he covers everything from combating writer's block, to story structure. His #1 tip? "All screenwriting books are bullshit, all. Watch movies, read screenplays. Let them be your guide." Maybe he should add "watch Vine videos" to his list!
