TC has found ain interesting interview with Terry Borst at Screenriter's Utopia. Borst got his start in the movie business by co-writing the scripts for Wing Commander III and IV. The interview discusses this and talks about what he's been doing since Wing Commander IV. Here's an excerpt:
My writing partner Frank De Palma and I knew a story editor who was consulting for Electronic Arts. Electronic Arts and Origin were looking for professional screenwriters who could write the screenplay for WING COMMANDER III, which was going to shoot several hours of live-action dramatic scenes. They liked our work; we were hired. Fortunately, we seemed to "understand" (or quickly learned) what interactivity might add to a narrative, leading to our winning several awards for the work in WING COMMANDER III and to our participation in and development (with others) of WING COMMANDER IV.
