Precious' Geoffrey Fletcher on how his struggles made him a better screenwriter
The Writers Guild plays a critical part in ensuring screenwriters aren’t trampled by the star machines and producer/director tyrannies that drive so much of Hollywood. While their panels sell out fast, through their web series, “On Angle,” they help give screenwriters the stage, asking them the questions no one else is asking, and giving them a potentially viral platform to tell their story. In this video, Oscar-nominated “Precious” screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher talks about his long struggle to make it in the industry, how his trials helped him pen the script – and what has been the hardest part of all.
