Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter roberto lezzi

An interview with screenwriter roberto lezzi regarding the Wildsound Writing Competition.


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

A: “The particular day” is a dark story about an unusual dog walking alone in a small square, thinking and reflecting about its ‘particular day’ that finally comes in a very unexpected way. It is a thin reflection on slavery through the use of rhetorical form.

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

A: The feedback WILDsound has given to my script has been vital. It has put me into the right direction to improve my script in the best possible way. I scheduled to enter other contests because I believe in this project and I want to spread it in any way, until an agent/producer will be found.

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: Yes, the awards were those promised and the administration has been great. I am still looking for an agent/producer (Wildsound states that almost 80 % of winning script finds an agent/producer: I hope not to be in the remaining 20 %).

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

A: I wrote it during a course on short movies in 15 minutes, without an outline but a simple idea. The script comes to me during the writing. Wildsound assisted me to write the second draft, following their precious suggestions by its feed-back.

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 use Celtx, free software for screenwriting. Good for my purposes.

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

A: When an idea comes it is a miracle. The miracle of creativity. So I do everything to not lose it. I write everywhere but leave it there for a while. Then resume and begin to develop it. Usually I do not make a plan of work but I write as I can and when I can. I can write 40 pages in a day and not write anything for a month. It depends. The important thing is not to lose the idea.

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

A: I had a writer's block in my mind.

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

A: I started to write stories a few years ago. I attended a screenwriting course in Italy and wrote several short film scripts just waiting to be made into movies.

I also have a blog, http://www.robertolezzi.it, where I published short stories and poems (in Italian but now looking for collaborators to translate into English and spread them everywhere). I also wrote a novel, “Chantilly Cream”, in search of an agent for the publication, and I started the second one. In short, Agent Wanted! Hurry!

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

A: I live in Turin (Italy), the place where I am born, but no problems to move to Los Angeles of everywhere if some good opportunity comes (and my English suddendly improves).

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

A: I am writing my second novel and working on translations of my short stories written in Italian (to English). Finding an agent/producer could boost my creativity and motivation (already high).
