Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Writer's Room

John August points us to a post by Mystery Man containing a pdf download of a transcript of the story conference which generated RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

A great resource (120+ pages) to learn how they started, what sources they took from, and what they were concerned with along the way.

Lucas said, “Part of it is the energy of making it reasonably low budget. It’s also a test of the idea. If it’s good, then we’ll be okay.”

Pulp Filmmaking 101. Yes?

Cunningham said...

Yes. That's part of it.

Energy from making it "by the seat of your pants."

I skimmed it last night, and will have to delve deeper when I can.
