Screenwriter Zack Stentz gives an honest account of the tough world of Hollywood and what a writer has to go through to make it.
He talks about the red carpet highs of Thor and X-Men First Class but then the long periods of struggling to get anything made.
In a powerful and candid discussion he talks about dealing with toxic fandom, the emotions of splitting from a long-time writing partner and going it alone as well the transition from film to tv and back again.
He talks about his fears of being aged out of Hollywood, how he takes no success for granted and the cold-hearted world of taking over writing rooms from cancelled shows.
And how he nearly gave it all up to go back to journalism, even though that profession was in freefall.
