  • ✪ Andrew Lanham: Nicholl Fellowship Screenwriter


My name is Andrew Lanham and I'm getting my Master's in Fine Arts in Screenwriting at the RTF Department. I finish in May. This is a two-year program and I'm in the second and final year. The screenplay is called 'The Jumper of Maine'. It's my second script. It's about a paramedic with Tourette's syndrome in Maine who falls in love with a single mother. I have Tourette's. It's a lot less now than it used to be but I grew up with it. So, I guess, that's kind of where the germ of the idea came from. [My screenplay] was one of the five winners for the fellowship. We win $30,000 over a year with that. And we are contacted by around 100 agents, managers and producers. Growing up, I was really obsessed with movies. I watched them over and over and over and watched pretty much everything. I thought I wanted to be an actor, because when I acted my Tourette's kind of disappeared. But that passion kind of faded away in college when I started writing. And I've been writing ever since! I thought they were both really strong programs from what I'd heard about them. They are really high-ranked, and they have a small amount of students. There are only 7 people, including myself, in the program. The seven of us, when we're in a workshop, or in any of our classes, we are all writing different things and have different perspectives and outlooks. In the first year in the program, I learned more than I ever could have hoped to learn -- and in kind of the perfect setting in which to learn it -- with really, really amazing teachers and people running the program. They've been mentoring me and helping me every step of the way, in terms of making the right decisions to bridge the gap into having a career. I've gotten the best of everything in the program here.



Gee Nicholl, widow of producer Don Nicholl, worked with Julian Blaustein in 1985 to develop the program with the Academy. The original 1986 winners were Allison Anders, Dennis Clontz, and Jeff Eugenides. 1989 fellow Radha Bharadwaj wrote the first screenplay made into a film, the 1991 drama Closet Land. Clontz won a Pulitzer Prize in 1994 and Eugenides won one in 2003. 1992 fellow Susannah Grant was the first nominated for an Academy Award, for the screenplay for Erin Brockovich. The fellowship celebrated its 25th year in 2010.[1]

As of the 2013 contest, 17 winning scripts have later been produced.[2]
