Screenwriting lesson from Ted Griffin

Ted Griffin is an L.A.-based screenwriter who wrote Ocean's Eleven, Matchstick Men, Rumour Has It..., Killers, and Tower Heist.

He broke into Hollywood in the late 1990s, selling a series of spec scripts that have so far gone unproduced, including Mobile in 1997, and Solace and Beached in 1998. These landed him an early rewrite assignment for a comedy called Domestic Partners, which has also gone unproduced.

Here he is, talking about his career.

Well it's lucky Ted Griffin didn't try to take his love of movie making in the direction of acting. He was so nervous, stuttering, repeating himself, and constantly breaking off.

I found it interesting he had no respect for his college degree, or movie conventions, and even research.

On a side note, it is saddening to hear a US college degree is $100,000. Bad luck if you don't have the money.
