Screenwriters Ben Phelps and Gabe Dowrick











Back by popular demand! Co-screenwriter and editor, Gabriel Dowrick, joins me in Episode 4. We discuss:

  • How we transform our ideas into screenplays.
  • How we work as a screenwriting team.
  • Our individual writing schedules.
  • Why it’s difficult to craft film titles.
  • Why our film has a new title. And what our film is about.
  • Why we love sizzle reels (AKA clipomatics, ripomatics, teasers and pitch trailers).
