Paul Chitlik Clutter is one of the single biggest reasons projects are so hard to get made in Hollywood. Every night, studio executives drag home a pile of scripts, 99% of which will end up in the reject bin. The way you decrease your script's chances of suffering the same fate is by doing your due diligence and not sending it out until it's at its absolute best. Unfortunately, too many writers, directors, and producers aren't skilled enough to know when that is.

On Monday, September 20th, Paul Chitlik, The Rewrite Mentor, and author of "Rewrite" will appear on Inside Urban Hollywood to discuss how to know when your script is ready.

Paul Chitlik has written for all the major networks and studios. He was story editor for "The New Twilight Zone," and staff writer for Showtime's "Brothers." He has written features for Rysher Entertainment, NuImage, Promark, and others. He received a WGA award nomination for his work on "The Twilight Zone," a GLAAD Media Award nomination, and won a Genesis Award for a Showtime movie. He has taught screenwriting at UCLA, Loyola Marymount University, and ESCAC, the film school of the University of Barcelona. He began teaching advanced residential workshops in 2008, in Cortona, Italy, and will lead workshops in Telluride, Colorado, and Spain in 2010.
