Episode Three: The Writer’s Perspective
It seems that every doctor, tailor, and coffee barista is writing a screenplay these days. If you’re one of the many who aspire to succeed at this fine art form you will definitely want to listen to this episode! Brian Herskowitz, Aydrea ten Bosch, and Andrew Robinson bring a variety of stories and experiences to the table as we talk about the business of being a screenwriter.
Like millions before him, Brian Herskowitz moved out to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. He soon learned that there was a dearth of roles for shorter leading men and began searching for other outlets for his creative passions. In 1980 he wrote his first screenplay, an action thriller about a young man who moves to Tokyo to train for the Olympics in Judo and gets caught up in intrigue with the Yakuza. As a writer, Brian has completed well over a dozen feature films. His TV credits include a staff writing position on the NBC sit-com BLOSSOM, multiple episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, the HBO hit comedy Dream On, CBS’s Renegade, The Exile, Murder, She Wrote, the FOX Network’s Young Hercules, and CBS’s critically acclaimed series Tour of Duty. In addition to writing Brian is the Senior Vice President for Artists Media Co-Operative, and has several films in pre-production.

Unlike most filmmakers, Andrew Robinson never set out to become one. At the age of 13, Andrew and his family relocated to Littleton, Colorado where he would eventually attend Columbine High School. During his time at Columbine, Robinson fell into the dramatic arts and became a staple in school as well as local and statewide productions. However, the morning of April 20th 1999 changed all of that. April Showers marks Robinson’s second feature length effort. Robinson and Edwards have recently begun work on their second feature film collaboration, an adaptation of Dancing Carl based on the novel by three-time Newbery Honor author Gary Paulsen.
