Franklin Leonard, creator of The Black List script tool, talks diversity and fake woke in the script development process with Benjamin Law.
The Black List is almost a legend, a bringer of fortune – though really, it's no more than a clever mechanism which depends on the internet. The List enables screenwriters to claim attention for their own scripts, and an international (but primarily US-based) community has formed around it, by which working executives can read unproduced scripts, and vote on them. The most liked are published in a list; writers are advised to secure paid script coverage as part of the package. The site has a blog, educational resources and records of partnerships including New Zealand and Western Australia. Membership costs US$30/month/script.
