Husband-and-wife writing and directing team Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapill met while working in local television news. Despite being at competitive stations, they both despised local television news and wanted to find a more creative path to “visual storytelling” where they weren’t “forced to tell a story in 30 seconds.” Together, the couple has credits for documentaries like The Elephant Bath, The Gambling Man, Lifecasters, and features such as Beneath the Harvest Sky, Queenpins, and an upcoming film called Crook County. Their current project, Queenpins, follows a pair of housewives who create a $40 million coupon scam. The surprisingly true story stars Kristen Bell, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Vince Vaughn, and Paul Walter Hauser. In this interview, the duo talks about their discovery process, feeling undervalued in the industry, how they conduct research as former journalists, advice on breaking in, and why every finished script is an asset to your career.
