Special Guest:  David Bush - Writer/Director/Script Supervisor

David Bush began writing feature films while in high school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and continued to do so while earning a BFA in film production at the University of Central Florida. His dedication to writing continued, practiced over nights and weekends, once he had returned to Louisiana and quickly moved up the ranks as an Assistant Director, working on such films as Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon and John Hyams’ Dragon Eyes.

His interest in working as an AD was motivated by his desire to continue evolving his craft of writing and directing from a practical on-set perspective, and once he felt the learning curve had plateaued from this position he switched to working as a Script Supervisor so that he could further learn from all of the conversations that occur at video village, whether produceorial, directorial or cinematographic. As script supervisor he worked on TV shows like MTV’s Scream and OWN’s Queen Sugar, and dozens of films including Alex Pettyfer’s directorial debut, Back Roads, and Tate Taylor’s Octavia Spencer starring horror film, Ma. But he also worked on several smaller films, often with first-time directors and inadequate budgets, and the insight and guidance that he brought to these sets did not go unnoticed by producers, and thus lead to some of his first writing and directing jobs.

Through connections made on set, David was hired to write Everglades (Henry Ian Cusick, John Savage) and One Nation Under God (Kevin Sorbo, Casper van Dien), to rewrite Camp Cool Kids (Markie Post, Mike Gross), and rewrite and direct A Deadly Affair (Luke Edwards, Austin Highsmith) and Did I Kill My Mother? (Megan Park, Stephen Colletti), both of which aired on Lifetime to favorable ratings. He has also written ten scripts for independent producers, done ghost rewrites on three films in pre-production, and written over a dozen original feature scripts, one of which he has since independently produced and will be distributing through the festival circuit in the following year under the title, Phony.

 

Your Host: David Margulis  

David Margulis is a credited Writer, Producer, Director and Location Manager. Dave studied Directing at NYU and writing at UCLA and is dedicated to independent films and production. Often working on studio pictures but always welcoming independent films.

Dave has enjoyed success with the emergence of Louisiana becoming a first choice for film production. David works on large studio projects as a Location Manager and Scout, assisting Directors and Producers to see their scripts come to life by presenting visceral locations for their film to be shot. Among other large studio films, David scouted, the Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Hi there-local professional actor and burgeoning screenwriter looking to develop my own screenplays.  I may not be able to make it tonight-have an audition to film that is due tomorrow.  When is your next one?  Not sure how often your series will continue to meet and really wish to network with local writers.
