One of the aspects of independent filmmaking I get asked about quite often is on writing a screenplay. The subject is always a strange one for me to talk about because I’m not a traditionally trained screenwriter by any means — heck, I went to comic book school. I’m just happy I know how to (barely) read! Every professional writing gig I’ve had in film, television or comic books has either been something I stumbled on to or created for myself — that includes my feature film work and even the stuff for Disney TV Animation. I’ve never submitted or been hired from a spec script, the work has always come from someone I know asking me if I wanted to write something for them.
