BPS 006: How a Screenwriter Becomes a First Time Director with Kelly Fremon Craig

4/4/2018
More
How a Screenwriter Becomes a First Time Director with Kelly Fremon Craig I'm asked all the time "How does a screenwriter get the opportunity to direct one of their screenplays?" That is the question. In Hollywood, more times than not, writers don't have the power or ability to direct their own material. It took a few screenplays before Quentin Tarantino got the shot with Reservoir Dogs. Today's guest is writer/director Kelly Fremon Craig. She got her shot to director her own screenplay on...

Paul Castro is a produced, award-winning screenwriter and world-renowned screenwriting professor. "Structure...is the canvas on which we paint with words." - Paul Castro His...

More

First Rule of Jim Uhls, YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT Jim Uhls! We I have a MAJOR treat for the tribe this week. I have no other than Jim Uhls, the master screenwriter behind David Fincher's "Fight Club", one of the greatest films in my generation, in my humble option. When Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club was making the rounds in Hollywood, it was a tough sale to be adapted for the screen. But then Brad Pitt got involved; add David Fincher and Ed Norton, throw Jim Uhls into the mix and you've got a...

It’s here! The first episode of The Bulletproof Screenplay Podcast! Now you might be asking... "Alex, why are you launching another podcast dedicated to screenwriting when you cover that on the IFH Podcast already?" Well, it's because I know that screenwriters are really NOT that interested in learning about lenses, self-distribution, or social media marketing.
