Chat with Richard Walter, chairman of UCLA’s Graduate Screenwriting Program

I’ve been two hours and a half talking with Richard Walter, Professor and Chair of UCLA’s graduate screenwriting program.

We were talking about the students of MGDA, the Screenwriting Master Program of Universidad de los Andes (Chile), and Professor Walter said:

“You’re not here to learn how to fit in to the movie business. You’re here to turn it upside down, to tear it all apart, to change it wholly and forever.”

What a big challange!

Richard has signed for me his new book, Essentials of Screenwriting: The Art, Craft, and Business of Film and Television Writing. Thanks!
