Sounds great. It would be interesting to ask these writers, maybe one-on-one, what their steps are to creating a scene. What comes first, second, third, etc. And what they try to achieve for the viewer. And what twists they add in along the way. And what are some scenes they think are 'great scenes' and what makes them great.
