Thane Economou is a screenwriting nerd, who could discuss theories on opening pages and midpoints for hours.
After graduating from Southern Methodist University, Thane moved out to Los Angeles and worked in development at a 20th Century Fox-based production company. There, he read hundreds and hundreds of scripts. Some were great. Some were awful. But most were mediocre, and Thane wanted to figure out why. He analyzed structures, character arcs, thematics, and the industry itself. And he applied it to the screenplays he was writing at night.
One of these screenplays became THE WEDDING PARTY, a feature film he directed in 2017. The Wedding Party is a romantic comedy filmed in one-continuous 119-minute take.
More recently, Thane sold his spec musical feature script MEET ME IN NEW DELHI to Lionsgate. In 2019, he was featured on both the Hit List and the Young and Hungry List.
He’s repped at 3 Arts Entertainment and can be found on Instagram @thaneeconomou.
Thane is new to Script Anatomy, so testimonials will be coming soon!
