The Closing Credits Podcast

Mar 5, 2020

Hello and welcome to episode 5 of The Closing Credits Podcast. Today, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Gary Whitta. He's a screenwriter best known for Rogue One and The Book of Eli, he's written for Star Wars Rebels, Telltale's The Walking Dead video game, and his own novel, Abomination, and a comic book series, Oliver. In this episode, we talk about writing for video games, how does a script go from paper to screen, the writing process, how does one write compelling characters audiences can sympathize with, and dealing with creative heartbreak during your journey into screenwriting.
