Creative Spark: Screenwriter Stephen Schiff reveals his process

Steven Schiff Creative Spark Academy Originals

In this week's Academy Original go into the home of screenwriter Stephen Schiff  (Lolita, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps) and learn about his creative process and find out where his ideas come from. 

"Creating is important to me because I kind of have to do it," Schiff said. "Because I feel driven to do it - because I feel unhappy if I don't do it."

To compare Schiff’s approach to that of another successful screenwriter who also has unique views on creativity, check out this episode featuring School of Rock writer Mike White.
