The Writing Show Podcast with Michele Wallerstein Oct 22

Michele WallersteinAs readers of Scriptwrecked should already know, Michele Wallerstein is a Screenplay and Career Consultant with years of experience as a Hollywood literary agent. She’s recently released, “MIND YOUR BUSINESS: A Hollywood Literary Agent’s Guide To Your Writing Career” — which I reviewed here.

Recently Michele was interviewed by Paula Berinstein of The Writing Show, and the half hour podcast of their chat offers some terrific, hard-to-come-by information for aspiring screenwriters about the business of Hollywood.

Some items covered in the podcast:

  • How the book came about
  • Following the rules of Hollywood
  • The need to keep proving and improving yourself
  • What happens in a meeting with a producer
  • Deciding what to write
  • Studio vs. Indie films
  • Why new writers shouldn’t team up on specs
  • How to avoid shooting yourself in the foot
  • The realities of executive notes
  • What a writer’s career is really all about
  • Step deals, pay or play
  • Reinventing your career
  • Breaking in as an older writer
  • When to approach Hollywood

It’s definitely time well spent.
