James Schamus’ screenwriter reality check

Not only is James Schamus the screenwriter of such films as Brokeback Mountain and The Ice Storm, he’s also the former CEO of Focus Features. So when Schamus gives a lecture on the current film industry, filmmakers should take note.

While Schamus isn’t big on advice, he encourages aspiring screenwriters to stop dreaming and start writing.

“If you’re an aspiring screenwriter who’s not already screenwriting, you’re probably not an aspiring screenwriter.”
