James Gunn on Screenwriting

“There’s somebody out there who’s writing harder than you are. Write harder than that person.” – James Gunn

Over a decade ago, Lloyd Kaufman published the “Make Your Own Damn Movie” DVD set. Although I can’t vouch for the product’s quality, it does feature a couple of interesting interviews. This is one of them.

In this semi-impromptu interview before he became a big-time Marvel director, Guardians of the Galaxy‘s James Gunn discusses his entry into the screenwriting business, building a reader base, taking notes, rewriting, getting an agent, script formatting, structure/acts, index cards, endings, adaptations, blockbusters, and production.

He even admits screenwriters don’t make the big bucks!
