Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Craig Berger

An interview with screenwriter Craig Berger regarding the WriteMovies.com Writing Competition.

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

A: The script is called "The Devil and Agent Webster" and it's about what happens when The Devil has to go into the Federal Witness Protection Program.

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

A: Whenever I have a few new scripts, I do a little on-line sweep, Moviebytes is quite helpful for this, and pick out about ten contests that I'm going to enter, that I like and think will be a good fit for me. This particular script is currently in the quarterfinal round of some other contests and I'm not sure how it will end up. It was also a 2nd rounder in the Austin Film Screenwriting competition.

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

A: I was certainly satisfied with the administration of the contest. It took me awhile to get a meeting with the sponsor of the contest, but I thought that was good because it meant he was busy getting movies made, which is what I want. So far, I have gotten everything that was promised as a result of winning.

Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?

A: I have received extensive notes on the script and am sure the script has improved tremendously as a result. Writemovies and TalentScout Management are committed to helping me put out the best product possible.

Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?

A: I have only recently won the contest, but as word gets out, I expect marketing opportunities to grow. It's a fresh, funny script and I have high hopes! I also have many other scripts, a good number of which have placed in screenplay competitions, so I hope this award will help me find a dedicated agent who can help me take full advantage of my talent and prolific nature.

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

A: Yes, I've written over a dozen feature screenplays, as well as several television pilots, stage plays, and comic book scripts.

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

A: I moved out to Los Angeles from Brooklyn four years ago, and so far it seems like the right decision.

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

A: I am always writing and working on scripts of one kind or another. My latest is based on my experiences as a Chess Coach in Harlem. There's always something new on the horizon as far as my writing goes.
