Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Jan Hadwen Hubbell

An interview with screenwriter Jan Hadwen Hubbell regarding the L.A. Film & Script Writing Competition.

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

A: "A Perfect Gentleman" is a RomCom that turns My Fair Lady upside down.

Two New York City socialites, on a bet, transform a charming homeless man and pass him off as a Count at Cannes. When he falls for a young royal, and the truth is revealed, all is lost.

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

A: Any contest with L.A. in the title is likely a tried and true contest.

'A Perfect Gentleman' won fourth place at the Colorado Film Festival this summer.

In the Spring, it placed in the quarter finals at the Vail Film Festival.

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: I am beyond satisfied. They met all their deadlines and have been very responsive.

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

A: The idea for this screenplay hit me like a lightening bolt. I began writing and could not stop.

Then comes the editing--two years so far. And getting top notch comments on Triggerstreet helped immensely. Comments from other contests have also been valuable.

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

A: There's always a choice between Final Draft and Movie Magic Screenwriter. I chose the one with "magic" in the title!

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

A: I'm currently working on two novels at the same time. I also write short stories (published) and poems (published). I write every day, even if it's just a sentence, sometimes at a stoplight. Please don't notify the authorities.

As an English Professor, I also teach fiction writing, and that, though, time consuming, proves to be inspiring as well.

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

A: Mostly I get "life-block", which is the battle writers have: life vs. writing. Too often life wins.

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

A: I have an MFA from the Iowa Writers Workshop and a BA from Bennington College where I studied with Bernard Malamud.

Two novels have been absorbing my time for a decade.

Creating poetry helps immensely with screenwriting, as it helps to reign in the dialogue.

I've been an English Professor for 6 years, and before that I was a business writer on Wall Street.

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

A: Though L.A. is the place to be...I am a hop, skip, and jump away 8000 feet high in Colorado!

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

A: Yes, indeed!

I have an original moive idea that is burning the midnight oil, but the research is taking over at the moment.

Thank you, Moviebytes, for this opportunity...
