Producer and Screenwriter
George Edelman in an LA native who started his career working as a production assistant on indie features. He moved into the grip and lighting department, had a pit stop in art department, and eventually worked as a first AD, production manager, production coordinator, line producer, then creative producer and screenwriter.
He produced on projects for HBO and Comedy Central.
He served as a creative consultant on branded content for brands at major agencies, produced the content, and was repped at Paradigm Agency and Black Box Management.
He wrote and developed multiple feature films as well as episodic content with high profile production companies including Bad Robot.
In 2015 his indie feature Amigo Undead was the winner of numerous audience awards in the festival circuit and was bought for distribution and released by Gravitas Ventures. It continues to play on many major streaming platforms and cable channels.
George has had the good fortune of working with and learning from many great talents including Bob Odenkirk, Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty), Dan Harmon (Community), Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner (Drunk History). As well as many editors, staff writers, directors, and showrunners working in the industry today.
We don’t report on gossip. We value the feedback and we continue to provide content geared towards indie filmmakers with tools, resources and a dive into the creative process. If we ignored explaining and discussing the business aspects of the industry we’d be doing our readers a disservice. No filmmaker can exist without that. We strive to cover what’s happening in the world of filmmaking by offering insight and asking questions that can help inform our community. We are always open to feedback, and it’s helpful to know what specifically our readers want more of rather than just what they want less of.
Interesting point! I think the nuance I’d point out is that we (the audience) don’t know how these new characters factor in. We also, as it turns out, didn’t know how it would end even if we thought we did.
We have added an editors note to clarify the relationship. I know everyone behind G-Casper would love to get critical feedback, part of the goal behind this is to continue to see it evolve to fit the needs of producers and production companies.
I agree so many people loved the episode and felt it was all earned, the goal in this post was to look at how the writing of the episode maybe have left as many viewers as angry as it did. Not to say they were right, or wrong for having that reaction. Just to consider the reasons from a screenwriting perspective.
I tend to disagree with the point that people only want feedback from other people in the arena. Some filmmakers or creatives want input from audiences who aren't creative. Entertaining, as a pursuit, isn't just about entertaining ourselves. Or other creators. But that's my opinion. As a screenwriter I found it very hard to take seriously some of the opinions from other creators I was supposed to, but feedback from audiences who saw my work was always invaluable. To me, of course.
Great point- I didn't consider that we'll make note.
Hey everyone thanks for the comments here. This post was an attempt to offer some counterpoint editorially to the wide held beliefs on the movie. There is room, we think, for subjectivity in discussing some of the great and lasting films. We have heard you all loud and clear though and we really value this sort of input, even when highly critical. We try to slate and publish a wide array of content and push the boundaries of our discussion about film and filmmaking here past the well-worn paths. Please continue to chime in and tell us what we're doing right and wrong in your eyes. Thanks as always.
