Contest News

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Robert Rhyne

An interview with screenwriter Robert Rhyne regarding the WeScreenplay Writing Competition.

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

A: “Passing Through” won third prize in the competition. It’s about a doctor who faces dangerous consequences when he falls in love with his female patient – who was also his victim in a hit and run 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: I believed this script competition was about helping writers get a foothold in the industry. “Passing Through” previously won the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television Screenplay Competition and was a finalist in the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition, Bluecat Screenplay Competition, and made the quarterfinals of the Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting.

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: The administration of this contest was professional all the way, from entry to follow-up after the win. All of the awards promised were received.

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 first draft was written in about four months. It was written from a synopsis and then an outline. The draft I entered in this contest was #8 or 9.

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 used Final Draft software to write this script.

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

A: I usually write two to three hours per day.

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

A: I do occasionally get writer’s block. I deal with it by putting the current script aside for a few days and working on another script or story, then returning to it with a fresh outlook.

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

A: My background is in urban planning. I’ve written seven other scripts which have won or placed in dozens of screenwriting contests for over 40 awards. I’ve also served as a contest reader and judge for several prominent screenwriting contests.

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

A: I live in northern Orange County, about thirty miles from L.A.

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

A: I’m currently developing a supernatural thriller with a literary manager.
