Best Advice For Screenwriters

David Trottier – successful screenwriter, screenwriting teacher, and author of “The Screenwriter’s Bible” – on his best advice for screenwriters:

“Living outside of the Los Angeles area is only a problem after you’ve sold your first script and only if you’re selling directly to a Hollywood-based company. And it may not be a problem even then. You can market your script from anywhere.

Most Hollywood producers are more concerned about your writing ability than your current domicile. Don’t let your current residence deter you from pursuing a screenwriting career. Concentrate on your writing first and your geography problems second.”

    I have the fifth addition and use it often to clear things up. It’s a book with all the basics.
