    What’s it Like to Write a Movie For Marvel?

    Guests today Ryan and Kaz Firpo made a huge career jump from directing documentary films to writing a script for Marvel; they’re sharing what that experience was like.

    In this episode, we talk about...

    How even at the highest level of film-making, its essence is the same - a group of people making stories.

    The career journey of these two filmmakers.

    A movie the two co-wrote that was placed on The Black List (for great scripts that have not yet been produced) and got them attention that led to Eternals.

    Tips for a successful General Meeting.

    What experiences and themes they drew from writing the script.

    Behind the scenes looks at the process of writing for Marvel, working with Chloé Zhao, and working with Marvel’s braintrust, The Parliament. 

    What it was like for them to finally see the movie finished!
