In-Depth Interview – Theodore Melfi and Allison Schroeder

The Oscar’s were held recently, and there were some great screenwriters up for the awards. If you’d like to see a full list of the winners, check out our post: Oscar Winners 2017. We’ll be continuing to post our selections of in-depth interviews for the next several weeks until we go over all of the nominees.

This week we’ll be covering Theodore Melfi (writer, director and producer) and Allison Schroeder, who wrote the adapted screenplay for “Hidden Figures.” Theodore is most well known for his other films, “St. Vincent” (loved this movie) and “Winding Roads” (only trailer I could find. Sorry for the low quality). Allison is most well known for writing several TV shows, including “Side Effects,” and “Miss 2059.”

I’m providing two interviews today, because I couldn’t find one with the two of them together.
