“Mad Men” Writers Visit VFS

December 15, 2013

I had the pleasure of meeting Emmy-winning screenwriters Maria and André Jacquemetton when they visited Vancouver Film School recently.

The writing team, who most recently worked on the acclaimed television drama Mad Men, spent over two hours answering questions from students looking to break in to the television industry, and another three hours the next day holding roundtable discussions. Everything was fair game, from the best way to pitch ideas and nab an agent, to the co-writing process and working as a writers’ assistant.

I shared some of what they had to say in this recent post for Vancouver Film School’s blog:
