David Congalton is a radio talk show host and writer who spent 25 years chasing his dream of selling a script to Hollywood. The result was a 2014 feature film comedy Authors Anonymous, starring Kaley Cuoco, Chris Klein, Teri Polo, and the late Dennis Farina as members of a dysfunctional writing critique group.
Congalton’s second feature film screenplay Seven Sisters is slated to go into production in early 2015 with director Danny Leiner. Congalton, 61, shares his remarkable journey—the lessons learned and advice for those writers pursuing similar dreams. The shooting script for Authors Anonymous is posted online at htpps:www.imsdbdotcom for those interested in reading the screenplay prior to Congalton’s lively presentation.
David Congalton will share the agony and ecstasy of chasing your screenwriting dreams as the guest speaker for the California Writers Club Tri-Valley Branch on Saturday, June 20, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. at the Four Points by Sheraton, 5115 Hopyard, Pleasanton.
