Screenwriting 101: Adam Rifkin

“It’s always good to write something that you know you can write really well, especially when you’re starting out. If you think you can write a horror movie better than anybody else, but you kinda think it’d be cool to write this drama about these nuns going across Australia in search of humanity or whatever, I would say, ‘Save the nun script for a script or two down the line, and write the script that you know you can nail.’”

– Adam Rifkin (Mousehunt, Underdog) from “Tales from the Script”
