Zero Draft Thirty is a concept from screenwriter Scott Myers (K-9, Alaska, Trojan War) and the good folks at Go Into The Story (henceforth referred to as GITS). The idea is for writers to hammer out an entire draft of a screenplay in a month.

This month. March.

They want you to go from  FADE IN to FADE OUT in that beautiful 12-point Courier font.
