With us today is Ryan Engle. Ryan has accomplished so much since graduating from USC. In this interview Ryan discusses how he worked his way up through the ranks at Kopelson Entertainment, eventually running the company, and how he made the transition from full-time executive to full-time screenwriter. His stories about how he landed his first writing assignment are both entertaining and educational – it was fun chatting with him about the inner workings of the film writing world, and I think any writer can learn a lot from Ryan’s experience and know-how.
After his script ON A CLEAR DAY found its way onto The Black List, Ryan received multiple writing and rewriting assignments – most recently being hired to work on the upcoming children’s movie adaptation of the fun TV show, BEN 10, and for all of you arcade gamers out there, the movie adaptation of RAMPAGE. Ryan is still young with a very bright future ahead of him, and I think we can all learn a lot from how he has approached his career, and continues to find success. Enjoy and thanks for listening.
