Jule Selbo -Hollywood screenwriter and head of the MFA in Screenwriting Program at California State University, Fullerton
SOCALshowbiz - Spotlight On Jule Selbo, 9 Nov 2012 [cached]
Jule Selbo is an accomplished writer (screen, stage, television, and film), tenured Associate Professor of Screenwriting, PhD candidate, and brilliantly fun to talk with. She was born in Fargo North Dakota, started making films in 8 th grade with a junior high teacher who loved film, early in her career as a playwright had one of her plays done off off Broadway in NYC, caught the eye of an agent and a TV producer, was encouraged to write for film and TV and thus did. That's sort of a recap of her journey. Now for some more details followed by a fascinating Question and Answer session.
Jule recently completed a feature script for the Jim Henson Company, UGLY, co-written with Matthew Jacobs.
Jule is co-editor of the JOURNAL OF SCREENWRITING, Intellect Press, and has published articles on film genre and pre-Code cinema in academic and in Analyzing the Screenplay, published by Routledge.
In addition to her tenured position as an Associate Professor of Screenwriting at California State University at Fullerton and has taught in the UCLA Extension Writers Program. She holds two-day workshops for screenwriters to do in-depth work on story outlines to prepare them to start the script process. She also works as a script consultant and analyst.
A conversation with Jule Selbo. Enjoy!
OCS: Was there an aha! moment when you knew you wanted to pursue a career in entertainment? Jule Selbo: Not really.
Jule: BFA, Southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas, then a year apprenticing as an actor at Actors Theatre of Louisville in Kentucky, then MFA at UNC, Chapel Hill - and then New York City.
Jule: You hear this all the time but it is true: it all comes down to story.
Jule: A Disney executive read a fantasy/action script that I had written for Paramount Pictures and suggested I be hired to write Hunchback of Notre Dame Part Deux.
Jule: I began to be asked to do seminars in screenwriting and realized I loved teaching - basically talking about story and characters and breaking down narrative structure.
Jule: CSUF, Radio-TV-Film students are doing well "in the business".
Jule: Write. Write. Write. Continue your training in the craft. Take chances in your scripts. Find your personal voice.
Jule: Right now I am working on a script for a documentary, I have just finished Episode One of the graphic novel, I am working on presentations on screenwriting I have to give at academic seminars - and hope to finish a "spec" screenplay this summer. Oh - July 10-22 I am coordinating a great screenwriting workshop - CSU Summer Arts - up in Fresno at CSU Fresno. It's open to students and non-students - anyone interested in screenwriting for short films, web-series - any kind of writing for media/new media. People come from all over to take classes, they can live in the dorm or - anywhere in town - we work all day - and students come out of there with three short scripts they can be proud of.
OCS: Is there anything else you'd like to share about the fascinating journey you continue to travel? Jule: I've had a chance to work on exciting projects with exciting people - and continue to do so.
