Writing Advice That I Think About Most Often – Jeremy Foley

Film Courage: What writing advice has helped you the most? 

Jeremy Foley, Filmmaker/Actor/Screenwriter: That’s a good question. The writing advice that’s helped me the most is actually very simple. It came from a friend of mine who’s himself a fantastic writer/director who’s written and directed films that we’ve seen on Netflix (big, big movies) and the writing advice was only Keep Writing. That was it. This was coming from a friend who was trying to impart on me that the way he broke in or the way that he was able to elevate his career was when he wrote a script that everybody wanted and he was able to attach himself as a director. The advice was very simple just Keep Writing. It’s something I think about often and it’s something I think about to this day and I feel like that goes a little bit to what I was saying earlier about perseverance. It speaks to that a little bit because it is that attitude I think that I’ve seen be successful for so many people. I’ve seen this work where it’s just you…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
