More than any other category, the Bit Players had trouble coming to define the terms that would guide the best writing of 2015. So much goes into what makes a screenplay good: dialogue, plot, characters, pacing, and more. Even editing and acting play a huge role in what from the page ultimately makes it onto the screen, but we tried to consolidate all of those written elements that we could best deduce having read exactly zero words of an actual screenplay, combined. Therefore, our best writing of 2015 is purely speculative, assumed, and could very well be entirely wrong, but it's more about the essence of a story and screenplay that can more than likely be presumed to be true. We did our best (if you don't count reading as being our best)!
"We got two stories here: a story about degenerate clergy, and a story about a bunch of lawyers turning child abuse into a cottage industry. Which story do you want us to write? Because we're writing one of them."
"When I was a little girl my parents would not allow me to go south of 8th mile. And I did not even know what that meant until I got a little older. And I started realizing that. That was where the city started and the suburbs ended. And I used to think about how shitty and weird was that. I mean I had to ask permission to go to the state fair with my best friend and her parents only because it was a few blocks past the border."
"Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters. It's a movie, man. You don't know that movie? A ghost gives Dan Aykroyd oral sex."
"I say we lock ourselves in our room and use that one swear word we know. It's a good one!"
"If a fire causes a stampede to the unmarked exits, it'll have been well worth it for those who survive."
