Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Warren Glover

An interview with screenwriter Warren Glover regarding the Screenwriter Showcase Writing Competition.

Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?

A: LUCK'S RAN OUT. It's about a physically and emotionally crippled husband who faces a marriage meltdown as infertility, gambling problems and sibling rivalry torpedo his attempts to please his sometimes overbearing wife, serving only to drive her into the arms of the more dashing brother who caused his accident.

Q: What made you enter this particular contest? Have you entered any other contests with this script? If so, how did you do?

A: It was my first feature script and I wanted to test it, as it were. It won the 2010 Screenwriter Showcase contest and has come runner-up in the 2011 Writers' Block International Writing Competition. It also reached the final selection round of the 2012 British Independent Film Festival screenplay contest; the quarter-finals of the 2011 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards, the semi-finals of the WriteMovies International Screenwriting Contest 27 (2011), the quarter-finals of the 15th Fade In Awards (2011), the Emerging Screenwriter screenwriting contest Top 100 (2011) and, as a short, the semi-finals of the 2011 Golden Age of TV short screenplay competition and the semi-finals of the 2010 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards. It's also received a 'CONSIDER' from Extreme Screenwriting and CoverScript.com coverage service.

Q: Were you satisfied with the administration of the contest? Did they meet their deadlines? Did you receive all the awards that were promised?

A: Yes.

Q: How long did it take you to write the script? Did you write an outline beforehand? How many drafts did you write?

A: Probably about three months to write the first draft. It's currently at the fourth draft stage but I do want to go back to it for a fifth draft (once I've finished my current writing commitments). It started out as a short story then I adapted it into a short screenplay as part of my coursework on a screenwriting course at Edinburgh University (writing a step outline first) before turning it into a full-length feature.

Q: What kind of software did you use to write the script, if any? What other kinds of writing software do you use?

A: I write in Word! I've tried Celtx but haven't got the hang of it.

Q: Do you write every day? How many hours per day?

A: I try to write every day for at least four or five hours. But my day's also spent planning, researching and marketing my existing work.

Q: Do you ever get writer's block? If so, how do you deal with that?

A: Yes. I've learned that you just have to punch through. Keep going. Work on something else if necessary or go to a different part of the screenplay, a new scene or a different act or whatever. But keep the faith. You'll work out a way through it eventually.

Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?

A: I'm a short story writer and occasional poet (published in both). I studied screenwriting at Edinburgh University and have also written a few short plays. I'm currently working on my fourth feature script (a collaboration). I have four completed short films, two of which I directed myself (from my own scripts). You can check out my IMDb profile at: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4272394/

Prior to pursuing screenwriting full-time I was in a research and policy job in the health sector for fifteen years, and I've always written throughout my working life (policy papers, magazine articles, website copy, press releases etc).

Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?

A: No. I live in Sydney, Australia (although I'm British). I have no plans to move to LA (unless I end up selling a script to Hollywood and I have to rewrite it).

Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?

A: I'm collaborating on a political drama with a production company in the UAE, and I'm about to write the third draft of a romantic comedy. I've yet to tackle a full-length play and a novel, so they are also in the pipeline at some stage.
