SYS Episode 316
Filmmaker Martin Gooch is back on Selling Your Screenplay Podcast for a third time! In this episode he talks about his latest Sci-Fi action movie Atomic Apocalypse.
Other topics include, making movies in the United Kingdom and the struggles of getting financing for indie film.
Today I spoke with Claire Elizabeth Terry, who founded the Rocaberti Writers Retreat, which operates a sort of educational getaway in exotic locations: Medieval castles across Europe! Writers meet daily with the mentor of their choice, who include Academy award-winning writers, directors and major movie producers - in small groups of just 4 writers, to workshop their project. This is a chance to receive undivided attention and ask questions about anything related to their writing—from their story arc to gaining traction in their writing career to crafting the perfect pitch for an agent or producer.
So consider taking the most exclusive and fun literary ‘vacation’ for furthering your writing and writing career, all while residing in a castle!
