Rules and Regulations

Andrew Dignan is a free-lance screenwriter and production lackey living, and occasionally working, in Los Angeles. When not working the graveyard shift on reality shows and commercial shoots, he can be found on Twitter and Letterboxd, where self-loathing and dirty words have been known to work their way into the regular reviews and ill-advised jokes. Unmarried, childless, and as yet unproduced, he continues to leave behind a dubious legacy of credit card debt and disappointed parents, who really wish he’d go get a Masters Degree or do something useful with his life.
