About the Gremlin

That’s me!

Hello, I’m Elizabeth Weidner, but everyone calls me Betsy! I’m an aspiring screenwriter based in California. I graduated from UCLA’s professional program in screenwriting in the spring of 2017 and have been submitting to contests and looking for work ever since — such is the life of a screenwriter.

I’m mainly using this blog as a way to write more about screenwriting (and avoid writing my screenplays), and the film industry, as well as throwing in a little bit of lifestyle stuff (because what else is a blog for?). I currently offer script-reading services with an emphasis on punching up dialogue (I’m just really good at that, it’s weird), and would love to take a look at your story if that interests you!

I was nominated for the Nate Wilson Joie de Vivre Award at UCLA in 2017, and my spec script ‘Just Gone’ was an Austin Film Festival Second Rounder.

Currently seeking representation.

Thanks for checking out my blog!
