Stories from a seasoned screenwriter. Take heart! Your creative source is infinite and un-ending. Sometimes Hollywood just rips up the roadmap back to it. The bottom line is that Hollywood is not at all as bad as it sounds. Additionally, it's worse than you can imagine. Remember to pack a sense of humor.


I am a screenwriter living in Southern California. I've written screenplays for most of the Hollywood studios over the past 20 years. One of the uncredited writers of FANTASTIC FOUR, I wrote FIRE DOWN BELOW starring Steven Seagal, and the TV Movie 12:01 PM starring Martin Landau and MANEATER with Gary Busey. I have directed short films. I have written on numerous Hollywood studio assignments, some for big shot actors, some for small shot nobodies.

Good Workshop!

A few of us got together and had a nice long chat on process and theory. It was great to hear about where everyone was in their writing, and share on where they were stuck. Hopefully, we can all take something away from today and get a little bit more unstuck. Thanks for sharing your time.

And thank you for taking the time to meet with us! A great workshop. I mentioned on my blog that I thought I learned more during those four hours than during the last ten weeks in my UCLA Extension class.

Thanks again!

Wow, sorry to have missed the get together. I have been out-of-town for a few weeks putting together financing for a low budget film, or is it wrong to call a project shot on HD a film? Anyway, I will continue to lurk in the hopes of catching a future workshop.

Wow, wish I had found your web site two days ago. I would have definitely gone to the Workshop. I'm the host of Screenwriters Podcast (www.ScreenwritersPodcast.com) and maybe if you host another one of these events, with your permission, I'll bring along some portable recording gear and do a live podcast of the highlights! Cheers, Gary.
