Meet Eric Weinstock: Root Canal Specialist By Day And Award-Winning Screenwriter By Night

Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?

I am Eric Weinstock and an award-winning screenwriter of feature films.

To date, I have 6 produced and distributed feature films with several others in pre-production. I will make my directorial debut next summer for the short film that I wrote and will produce “Love Don’t Fade Away”.

What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?

Outside of filmmaking, I am a board-certified Endodontist (root canal specialist). This profession gives me a unique insight into the human condition.

Dealing with people at their most vulnerable yields invaluable data about human emotion and leads to some great inclusions in my scripts.

My favorite script is a dark dramatic comedy called Perfect Smile about a womanizing dentist on the run! Hope to produce this one day!

Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.

When I started writing my first script.

I had many great movie ideas swimming in my head for years, but when I finally put pen to paper, I was hooked.

What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?

As a screenwriter, pushing through those periods of doubt. A writer needs to write, even if there are times you think your work is irredeemable.

As a producer, my biggest challenge is passing on quality actors. It’s so tough for an actor to audition and put themselves out there, but when conflicts arise about a certain actor with more sales value, for example, it’s tough to say no.

Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?

Sylvester Stallone: Rocky is my favorite film. Stallone is a vastly underrated writer. When the writing and the acting performance came together in Rocky, I wanted to become a screenwriter. The rich dialogue and the authenticity of the performance are unmatched.

Martin Scorcese: Like many, I love his films. The unrivaled intensity of the dialogue and acting performances make amazing cinema. You have to watch, no matter how painful it can be!

Joaquin Phoenix: My favorite actor. The intensity of his performances is amazing. Great range as well. He says more with a glare than a page of dialogue.
