An interview with screenwriter Scott Cunningham regarding the Script P.I.M.P. Writing Competition.Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?
A: The Rise of Fred Amazing - it's about a foul-mouthed, alcoholic, deadbeat dad, retired superhero forced out of retirement to face his lifelong nemesis and redeem his past. And it's a comedy. A pretty funny one, too.Q: What made you enter this particular contest? Have you entered any other contests with this script? If so, how did you do?
A: Just a gut feeling. ScriptPIMP seemed like a cool contest to participate in and it certainly was.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: Chad Clough runs ScriptPIMP - does a great job with it. The absolute coolest thing was having the award ceremony at the Hollywood Improv. I can't believe that, still! It was a great night and a fabulous way to honor all of the writers who made it to the final round.Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?
A: Yes - the feedback was helpful.Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?
A: Yes, it has helped. It seems, that for a lot of people, this is just enough third-party validation for them to take the time to read the script.Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?
A: I have a background in stand-up comedy and improv, which I did extensively before shifting my focus to screenwriting. I've written quite a few screenplays and teleplays - many of which I am very proud of. At the moment, I'm particularly happy with a Boston Legal spec I wrote, leaning much more toward the comedic side of that show.Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?
A: I live in Los Angeles. If it helps, I'm in traffic right now.Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?
A: I'm working on a few projects - a family dramedy script with an extremely talented writing partner, rewriting an intense action-drama, and developing a number of other ideas - mostly comedies of one sort or another.
