    487: SCOTTY MULLEN - ASSIGNMENT WRITER

    487: SCOTTY MULLEN - ASSIGNMENT WRITER

    In this episode, Hilliard and Tristan J. Shuler from Road Map Writers sat down in a hilarious and engaging episode that is packed full of game. Our guest this week is little bro, Scotty Mullen, an award-winning writer known for his work with Syfy, Lionsgate, Lifetime, and Tubi. He is also an accomplished casting director and writing mentor. After getting his feet wet writing on the pop-culture juggernaut "Sharknado" franchise, Scotty's storytelling skills have evolved into writing everything from prestige horror scripts to true-life dramas. He believes in living life by following "The Other F Word" - if it's not fun, don't do it...As of this date, Scotty has written 35 produced screenplays which have been filmed in 7 different countries. Scotty is known for being an enthusiastic collaborator with producers; almost all of his scripts have been written on assignment. Scotty is often hired for his script doctor skills and ability to save a production from the proverbial "developmental hell." Known for his fun humor and engaging spirit, Scotty shares his knowledge and guidance as a screenwriting mentor and audition coach. With over 15 years of on-the-ground Hollywood experience as a publicist, ad executive, casting director, and screenwriter, Scotty loves to help creators navigate smart and achievable ways to pursue their goals. Originally from small-town Kansas, Scotty went to college in Atlanta and now works from his home in Los Angeles.Our Motto:"We keep it GAME all day!"Follow us on Socials:⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠Hilliard Guess on X and all Social Media @HilliardGuess⁠⁠⁠⁠Follow our guests on Instagram@Scottymullen@TristanjshulerSPONSORSHIPS:⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠WooHoo Apparel:⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ Use 10 % off code: WOOHOOsrrScreenwriters Rant Room WEBSITE at www.screenwritersrantroom.com COMING SOON - for information, merch (t-shirts/hoodies), or our Patreon!

Screenwriters You came to the right place

This podcast makes you feel like you are in a friend’s living room, except your friends are highly successful screenwriters who openly share their stories
This has taught me so much and i’m only a fraction of the way through the episodes..
Hope to work with all of them someday..
see, i’m already learning to advocate for myself

upswriter ,

Fun and informative

One of the best podcasts on screenwriting, film and tv production you will ever listen to.

Amwill76 ,

Best Screenwriters Poscast

What I love about this podcast is that it covers everything! Writing, current state of the industry, and just dope everyday life things.

It feels like you just chilling at your family or close friend house that drops gems and so most knowledge on you.
