The Script Lab Podcast: Christopher Pratt — Former Literary Manager Turned Screenwriter

As a manager, Christopher Pratt spent years developing screenplays with clients, sometimes making seven-figure sales. Then, in a completely unexpected move, Christopher decided to ditch managing clients to become… a screenwriter! So, has it been worth it?

In this episode, he shares what the past five years have been like considering he’s written one screenplay a month (yes, he’s written 60), in an effort to teach himself how to write. We also discuss Michael Arndt’s video Endings: The Good, the Bad, and the Insanely Great which is must-see viewing for all upcoming writers.

Listen to the podcast below.
