11 QUESTIONS with Scott Ritchie - Short Screenplay Finalist

1. What is your screenplay about?

My screenplay, "The Funny Pages" is a season 2 Mad Men spec that follows the ever successful Don Draper as he is pushed toward the first serious defeat of his business reputation.

2. Why should your script be made into a film?

My Mad Men spec script is as good as any existing episode of the show.

3. How long have you been writing screenplays?

I wrote my first screenplay in 1989

4. What film have you seen the most in your life?

Jaws

5. What artists in the film industry would you love to work with?

Steven Spielberg

6. How many screenplays have you written?

Fifteen

7. Ideally, where would you like to be in 5 years?

Directing motion pictures.

8. Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?

My style has evolved over time. I keep numerous scrapbooks of images / moods I clip from various sources, I create very fluid beat outlines and character bios and create branching plot trees and free association fantasy dialogue lists.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I am a story board artist, working in Hollywood with most of the top directors going on 20 years now. Whether writing, directing or story boarding, it is all the same glorious muscles of translating the written word into compelling narrative images.

10. What influenced you to enter the WILDsound Script Contest?

It came highly recommended as a prestigious competition by Moviebytes.

11. Any advice or tips you'd like to pass on to other writers?

Do not stop writing, under any circumstances, ever.
