Madrid, Oct 2 (EFE) .- Victoria Vinuesa, psychologist and writer, is the only Spanish woman who âbeing a woman and a foreignerâ has managed to âsqueezeâ four original scripts into the Hollywood market, four films already in the works. told in an interview with Efe, very different from each other, but all commercial.
Because in the United States, explains the entrepreneur, “either you are very flexible, or they are looking for something else”.

Of course, he clarifies that his aspirations as a screenwriter are “to contribute to something good, even if it is a very commercial story.” I’m clear – he adds – that business is business, and if it’s not commercial, here you eat it, unless you are already very famous and already aspire to an Oscar, but not to make money “.
“Having an ongoing project in the United States is already difficult, but having not one, but four, being a foreigner, Spanish, a woman and not living there, because I’ve been to Spain before, it’s like a prodigy, âshe admires. .
The explanation says, it is not “a good sponsor, which I do not have”, he laughs, but the incessant work: “I manage, eh? And I don’t stop until I have the highest quality script, âhe says.
Vinuesa was born in Oviedo in 1974, graduated in psychology and began to write books on personal growth and well-being. One day he was tasked with finding someone to turn a novel into a screenplay; after researching and “asking for quotes”, she decided to do it herself. It was fifteen years ago.
He took a few classes and found he was very good at it. He began a new career, but his scripts were âtoo good for Spainâ, an angry story that more than once served as an excuse to block his way in his country.
âAt that time, I already realized that the Spanish market was very limited in offers of this type, so I went to Los Angeles where I have worked since.
