Dustin Lance Black Reveals His Creative Process In Inspiring New Mini-Doc

DLB8The “Academy Originals” series on YouTube steps into the mind of Milk and J. Edgar screenwriter Dustin Lance Black this week, chronicling his extensive creative process that precedes the actual making of a film.

If you thought DLB drew inspiration exclusively from his Olympic dreamboat boyfriend, think again. His inspiration comes from the research he does — just watching him ogle over a giant storyboarding table with a deck of “lost scenes” in one hand and flash cards of a personal interview in another is an emotional journey on its own.

It’s refreshing to hear DLB speak freely about his work, especially since he’s become a man more widely recognized as “Tom Daley’s boyfriend” in the last six months. Check out his inspiring process in the latest “Creative Spark” mini-doc and see other photos below:

      His approach is very similar to what I learned in several screenwriting classes.

      his process is actually a lot more simple than that…1- read The Mayor of Castro Street 20 times. 2- Write a screenplay nearly verbatem from the book. 3- Somehow convince the film communtiy it was an original work.
