ONLINE TALK: Horror is the best genre for writers to get noticed for a variety of reasons. Hollywood screenwriter Tom Radovich explains why.

About this Event

As Halloween season rolls along, it seems only appropriate to be visited by screenwriter/producer Tom Radovich, as he chats with us why your best bet to get noticed in the film industry is to write horror. We’ll explore all the aspects that put a horror screenplay ahead of all other genres. From budgets and casting, to themes ranging from escapist fun to social commentary, horror offers your story major versatility and accessibility. If you’re a screenwriter curious about things that go bump in the night, this online talk is for you!


Tom Radovich is a screenwriter/producer in Los Angeles, California, who loves creating the popcorn kind of entertainment that Sam Raimi, Chris Columbus, and James Gunn were known for in their early days.

He’s worked at Blumhouse Productions and graduated Loyola Marymount University with an MFA in Writing for the Screen in 2018. He’s also a producer and made a proof of concept short with his creative partner titled “The Graveyard Shift.” Tom was a finalist in the ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship and subsequently signed with a manager at Zero Gravity.

Raised in the small town of Stillman Valley, IL, he graduated Summa Cum Laude at Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.) in Film & Video in 2011. He later interned for Atomic Monster Productions and Blumhouse Productions.

Tom has experience as a screenwriter, director, producer, cinematographer, sound designer, editor, and assistant director. Comedy is in Tom’s blood but regardless of the genre, he takes on every project with integrity, enthusiasm, and high standards.
