What Is A Typical Career For A Working Screenwriter In Hollywood? by Professor Eric Edson
Film Courage: Eric, can you tell us about the first screenplay you sold, what was happening in your life at that moment in time and how many had you written previously?
Professor Eric Edson: Wow! That takes me back…I was still at UCLA as a grad-student. And I was in my first year working on my PhD. I knew I always wanted to teach at the college level at some time, so I wanted to get those required degrees in early. And I just loved college and I wouldn’t let anybody tear me out of there. So I was still working on the PhD. But there was another student there (a doctoral student) whose step-father was a director! And he asked “Do you have anything? Do you have any stories?” (Watch the video here on Youtube).
